Product Description

"That Parasound box is the bomb. You would not believe how good it made a 200-gram copy of Hotel California sound. It totally smoked the CD in my A/B comparison. Bass was big and creamy smooth. The vocals were like live in the studio. And the top end was crystal clear and sizzling from my Bostons. That Parabox was the best $150 I've spent in a while. I am amazed at how quiet the system was during the track runoffs. This set up made that 30-year-old Marantz sound like high-end new gear. You are the man. Making the world safe and affordable for old-school audio geeks like me." - (F.D. - Parasound customer) An entry-level phono preamp for a very reasonable price. We don't think you'll do better for $150. Take those LPs out of storage and get back to the real sound of vinyl. This elegantly simple and affordable component allows your turntable to be used with any preamplifier or receiver. Long live vinyl! Specs:Gain at 1 kHz: MM, 46dB; MC, 61 dB ..

I have had this item for about a year. It performs as expected. I have used both types of cartridges, MM (Moving Magnet) MC (Moving Coil) With good results. It is very well built and looks good.

The only improvements I would like to see is the ability to change the loading factors, impedance and capacitance but to be honest I have not run into any problems as of yet.

This item was well put together but there were things about it I did not like. It had no power switch and no output level control.
I was surprised when I wrote to Amazon about a refund to learn that this seller has a 15% re stocking fee, this is something buyers should be aware of.

I have never had a phone section this good. The price was good, and my vinyl has come back to life.

This is the BEST sounding phono pre amp in this price range. Used with a Technics SL-D3 with a Shure cartridge and an Onkyo M506RS amp.
