Summary: All I needed was something so that I could finally use my Pro-Ject Essentials turntable and this little box did the trick. Great for an amateur like me on a tight budget and I haven't noticed any noise. I only wish it had a volume dial on it so that I could use it directly to my Grado headphones, but instead I just have it routed through my MacBook.
Summary: I bought this for a friend as they needed a pre-amp for their year 2000 Kenwood receiver which surprisingly didn't have one. I was confident in my purchase because I had bought one for myself previously which performed just as I had hoped. Great product.
Summary: Just got this today from Amazon, can finally listen to my vinyl properly without having to crank the volume all the way up! If you get buzzing when grounding the turntable to the pre amp, ground the pre amp to the receiver as well. I just used a length of speaker wire and now have a nice clean connection, no feedback at all.
Summary: This pre-amp is nice for its price. However, there was a lot of buzzing when using it. Like another person here, I had to wrap it in thinfoil to make it stop. After that, the sound was pretty clean.
