I'm so far impressed with this! Phono pre-amps can have a big range of prices, this is one of the cheapest but seems to be working great. This is the first one I have used, so I can't compare it to very expensive ones, but the sound is clean with no background noise/buzz with the ground wire connected. This item is also very small, and is easily hidden behind my turntable.
It loses a star because it doesn't seem to amplify the signal quite enough, and as such I need to crank my receiver main volume higher than normal to achieve the level I want. Then I will forget its cranked high when I change the input to another device. Overall, it shipped fast and I'm satisfied.

The record player was underwhelming until this Pre-Amp arrived. The music is now coming out of the speakers with all the sound quality and enjoyment that was expected. Be prepared to have an extra set of red & white audio cables for the connection to your amplifier or computer speakers which is my set up.

It works, the printed circuit inside is just average and the components as well. It is not HI-FI, but a good and inexpensive solution for beginners. It can be easyly hidden behind an amplifier or turntable, so you don't need to worry about taking too much space.

As expected the sound quality is not great. That said my records are old and not in the best of condition. For the price the PP999 is decent value but if you are wanting audiophile quality you will be disappointed. As always the service and delivery from Amazon was very good.

It's ok, I feel I have lost loudness a bit but it saved me when the phono input blown out, so I'm using this in the Aux input (that doesn't have a built in amp for turntable)

We have an old turntable that we wanted to connect to our Bose system. We tried but the sound was very low even when we had the Bose at its maximum volume setting. We purchased this item which was so easy to install and worked perfectly. Now my husband can listen to his old vinyl record collection.

Works great! I first used my turntable without this one and the sound was weak. Opted to get this and once installed, a big difference. Would recommend this.

This little device performs a very useful function. I have a turntable and collection of vinyl albums. Modern AV receives often don't have RCA inputs for analog audio components. I wanted to digitize my collection. My computer does not have a phono pre-amp. This little pre-amp works great.
