    Rolls VP29 reviews

    VP29 - Phono Preamp is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for the buck Although I'm not a DJ, I purchased the VP29 to bring my turntable up to line level and run the signel through my mixer and into my powered speakers. I do use the audio equipment for my electronic keyboards but thought I would run the turntable through that equipment as well and it works great. I really like the idea that you can also ground your turntable to the pre-amp and get a nice clean signal that way. The audio cames through distortion free from the hi and low frequencies. This is a well made brand name product encased in metal, and a real deal at the current selling price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phono Preamp - Amazing I've had my turntable sitting next to my receiver for years and now finally am able to play my old albums. The sound is incredible - no hum, just crisp clean sound. Very easy to set up and delivery of the product was fast. Very impressed with B&H (first time purchaser from their site). Being from across the border, the duty/taxes option on the purchase was very easy and seamless. And I was able to track the shipment every step of the way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others, which I've done a few times over the past couple of weeks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from PERFECT for ripping vinyl LPs to MP3 I bought the VP29 to use in digitizing my LP collection for storage on my computer and to listen to through iTunes. Looked at some other pre-amps, but the VP29 seemed to have the best combination of quality and features for the price. Set up was quick and easy. I attached the phono outputs to the inputs on the VP29, and the outputs on the VP29 to an RCA-to-mini jack Y cable. I plugged that into the line-in jack on my HP PC. SOund is great, with minimal hum. I use Audio Cleaning Lab 14 to create and touch up the MP3 files. The 60Hz hum filter removes the hum, and it has crackle and pop filters as well as a brilliance filter to breathe some life into well-worn LPs. All in all, a solid little unit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple turntable setup I used the VP29 to hook up my turntable to a set of active speakers--no receiver. This is the only preamp I could find with a 1/8 output, which works slick with powered speakers or headphones. There is a slight buzz when plugged into the speakers, but diminishes when playing music. The preamp claims to be equalized specifically for phono playback, and I completely agree. Sounds great. Even my older records sound clear, with good emphasis on bass. It works with headphones, but you can't adjust volume. Another drawback is the LED power light stays on while plugged in with no off switch. Great compact size. Great quality as advertised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great - good sound I bought this to connect my old direct drive Technics SL-QD22 to a modern sony AV system. The box works well and the sound is excellent. I connected the ground wire, used quality phono cables and I don't hear any hum or background noise - it's very quiet. Any rumble I get is coming from the turntable itself. The unit is simple and easy to install and works very well. I am pleased with the sound quality. My final amp and speakers are very high quality and this unit complements them well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, highly effective, cost effective The VP29 is a simple and effective way to amplify your record player. I find the warm rich tone to be superior to any record player with a built-in preamp and even superior to many receivers with phono inputs (at least up into the middle grade of receivers). Recommended for its warm sound, negligible hum, and fair price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap Juice Box I use this in place of a JuicedLink. At about 1/10th the price! Bought a RC Battery pack and now mics - even the cheap ones - sound better. It is geared for RIAA so you will have to do some quick RIAA-Invert. But otherwise it gets the job done. Use this in the studio when the client is to cheap to pay for dedicated XLR mics-AKG etc., and real amps. Mostly use this when people want to rent the room on the cheap and insist on using THEIR mics!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Preamp for the Price I bought this preamp so that I could hook my turntable up to my newer Onkyo receiver. I use a Technics SL-J3 with Bose speakers and the sound is crystal clear. I also really like that it offers the ability to rip your records to a PC.
