The Plye Pro Ultra Compact Phono Turntable Preamplifier works perfectly. That is probably the most important thing everyone needs to know. However, you should also be aware that it is solidly built, clearly marked, and ready to go. Folks who are new to turntables (hard to imagine, isn't it?) are not aware that turntables' signal output is not "line level". This preamplifer provides the necessary signal "oomph" to get the signal to line level. It does a great job if you need to connect a turntable to a line input.

Works Great!

Easy to install and very small. Had to hook my linear turntable to an AUX port on a Mitsubishi receiver. This little preamp does a great job!

I always had an issue with my turntable that the output volume was ridiculously low... I had to crank the volume on my receiver nearly all the way, and even then it didn't sound right. I got this to place between the record player and the receiver and BOOM it was perfect. This unit is small and easy to keep out of the way. Highly recommend!

Asked by: Larry
Both the Pyle Pro Ultracompact Phono Turntable Preamplifier and the Pyle Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier will deliver quality audio from their outputs in a similar manner. The Pyle Pro Ultracompact Phono Turntable Preamplifier has an extra output as well, which differentiates it from the PP999.

will it work with a moving coil cartridge, connected between my turntable and my integrated amplifier?
Asked by: moshe
This product is not a good choice for a Moving Coil cartridge. You'll get a weak signal that will need to be boosted, and there will probably be a lot more noise. Moving Coil carts tend to be very high quality, so it would be a shame to use the wrong preamp and not get all of the potential quality.

question

Can I use it with a YOGA HT-81 to increase gain and reduce noise? Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
Increase gain, yes. Reduce noise, no. Increasing gain Always increases noise. This is an inviolable rule of physics and electricity--noise is always part of an audio signal. The question is how much noise. This is a specialty product, designed to take the signal coming from a turntable with a moving magnet cartridge (very low-level) and boost it to the level that typical contemporary consumer amplifiers will accept. For something at this price, it does a good job. But it only does that, and can't be adjusted to do anything else.

question

I am trying to hook up an old phonograph to a 90s Pioneer receiver (which still has a Phono input). The problem is the components are too far away from each other - probably need about 3 feet of RCA cable and ground extension. Do I need an item like this, or does Phono input offer enough boost to make the preamp moot? Thank you.
Asked by: Brian T.
you dont need a pre-amp The pioneer has one built in.The only problem you may get is a bit of stray pick upbuzz if you extend the cables too much.Three feet in total between the rx and turntable should not be a problem
