ART DJ PRE II overview

  • 1Description

Designed to amplify and EQ your vinyl records, the DJ PRE II from ART allows you to play and record into a variety of sources including your digital audio workstation, sound card, home stereo, or main monitor system.

The DJ PRE II features a switched (100pF / 200pF) analog capacitance to optimize your phono cartridge response. A low cut filter removes turntable rumble, while leaving the audio pristine. The front gain control and signal/clip LED allow you to optimize the preamp's gain for a wide range of input sources.

The built-in low-noise circuitry is highly accurate and precisely conforms to the RIAA standard, while the low impedance line output can be used with any sound card. The DJ PRE II is housed in an all-aluminum black anodized chassis and ships with a power supply.

  • High accuracy/low noise preamp
  • Switchable low cut rumble filter
  • Variable preamp gain
  • Signal present/clip indicator
  • Selectable cartridge loading
  • RCA preamp outputs
  • Heavy duty extruded chassis

    ART DJ PRE II reviews

    DJ Pre II Phono Preamplifier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best small preamp on the market. If you don't have a $2K + turntable this will do the work nicely. Would even work for those too! Has adjustments enough to make your vinyl sound sweet. I don't have phono inputs on my Tuner and they work just fine on aux and tape inputs. Was expecting less so yes, I am super happy with this pre amp. If the lack of on/off switch bothers you Ace has a switch for a couple bucks you plug into the wall and plug anything into it. You can also plug it into a switched outlet on your amp. I have it plugged in a monster box and also have those switches for my powered speakers which I shut off when I travel or will not use them for a while.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't Be Happier! I've struggled with cheaper pre amps before and haven't been happy with the performance. After receiving this unit, I could not believe the difference. I just plugged it in and connected my turntable's grounding cord. No ground loop hum of any kind...a perfect experience! If your are looking for a no hassle low cost pre-amp, I'd say you found it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Right Price Sounds Great Connected to my turntable to a beefy shelf system. The system doesn't have a phono input so I needed a preamp to boost the volume to line level. Does a great job of it, and has some features to help with line noise, quality of sound, and level of boost. As long as you ground the turntable to it, you shouldn't get any unwanted noises. Overall the sound quality to my untrained ears is great. I can also plug this into my computer via RCA to soundcard, videocard, or minijack to digitize my record collection. I only give it 4 stars though because of one thing. Wish it had a power switch so when I'm not listening to records I can power it down. Right now I have to unplug it and tape the cord to it so I don't lose it behind the shelves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The very best! Buying stereo's was my first hobby. I'd upgrade almost every year. So I think I know a lil bit of how instruments in general should sound... Getting this Art DeeJay preamp was a super bargain!!! I would've paid 4 times of what paid for it. You'll be more than surprised of what this little gem can do!!! No hum, no noise, no hiss. Cristal clear!!! It extracts ALL of the music, top & bottom... Solid!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pre-amp! Doubles as a night light! Picked this up to run my technics sl-1400 into a new receiver that was lacking a phono pre-amp. The stylus on the TT is a shure m97xe going into a Yamaha RX-A700 receiver. I just picked up a copy of the Hendrix vinyl re-issue of Axis:Bold as Love and the sound quality is incredible. At this price point, I don't think there is a better phono-preamp on the market. Build quality is excellent - configuration options are good. From what my ear can tell, it doesn't color the sound at all. It sends a clean noiseless signal which is exactly what I wanted. The only con is the insanely bright blue LED. I am alright with it not having a power switch, but as a result, I have to unplug it every night because the LED is like a beacon. It lights up the entire living room. Other than that, I am very happy with it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice for the price. At this writing only in use a couple of weeks. Just getting back to turntables after dropping them in 1985. Using with an Onkyo receiver, Harman Kardon T40 turntable, Signet Mr 5.0e / Shure M97Xe cartridges, and both sound very good. KEF Q50 and Klipsch speakers. I immediately replaced the 9v AC to DC power supply provided with a battery pack with eight AA batteries, for 12v and improved power related sound quality. I noticed the difference immediately, and the battery pack even has a switch on it! As far as pre-amps difficult to imagine things sounding better, especially at this price, but I'll keep an active and open mind on upgrading pre-amps if it presents a difference I can hear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, needs power switch I use the preamp to connect a nice retro turntable to a new audio receiver/speaker amp. It has great sound, and the gain control is particularly useful (allowing me to prevent rumble feedback). I also like the switchable input capacitance and rumble filters, although I haven't had to use them. It would be nice to have an on/off switch, as I only use the turntable occasionally.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phono Preamp Very nice phono preamp to connect my TT to my Dynaco Amp. My amp is DEAD silent and this did not change that in any way. There is not one bit of hum or buzz from this preamp at all. Its fantastic for around $, it cant be beat.There are really only two issues i have with it1. No on/off switch2. The LED's on the front, and in particular the blue power LED, is just insanely bright. I covered it with nail polish to stop getting blinded by the thing.Neither of these two issues really merritt removing any stars from this product though since the sound quality is excellent and is really the thing that counts in the end. B&H offered free shipping and the lowest price i could find at the time. Shipping was quick too. A+ service.
