Very small, grounded unit with low to no noise susceptibility. Has done wonderfully for archiving. Conceals nicely behind my AV rack.

Gold plated plugs with all hookups uncluded. Also, very affordable.

I researched the other pre-amps in this price range, and sorely wanted not to have to deal with noise or any other irritation. I just wanted the turntable to work.

This unit did the job perfectly -- no noise, simple hook-up. It's not quite as cheap as the others in this range, but, trust me, it's worth it to have a unit that works the first time, flawlessly, right from the package.

Set up a Bose Wave Radio System for my folks, to include their turntable and cassette player. The Bose salesman suggested I may need a pre-amp between the turntable and the Wave System. He could not recommend a certain make or model. I'm really glad I did not let this discourage me in deciding to purchase the system. All it took was gong to Amazon and very easily ording the TC-400G/L Phono Pre-amp. This was very easy to set up, you just plug in the pre-amp between the turntable and the system using the included RCA jacks. Grounding is important but I did not have a ground connection on my turntable. I simply connected the ground wire (not included, so I bought a spool of ground wire) from the pre-amp to a screw underneath the turntable. My back up plan would have been to attach the ground wire to the ground inside of the outlet on the wall. There was no humming noise or any other interference as described in some other reviews. Don't let the $29.00 price fool you, this amp works well.

Installed this between the phono & the receiver. Phono didn't have a pre amp & receiver didn't have phono inputs so we had to crank up the volume all the way to hear our old albums & the sound was too quiet & there was lots of feedback. This worked great & fixed all the problems we had.
They provide a super long power cord (really nice feature), extra connection cables, has a ground on the pre amp (which fixed the feedback issues we were having). It has an option of being mounted to a wall or shelf if desired. Has a power light to tell it's on & a switch on the cord to turn it on or off.
good price & an easy fix.

but my unit adds a lot of hum, even when grounded. I read the reviews on this before purchasing, which said it didn't add hum. Not the case with the one I received.

I needed this to boost the signal from turntable to computer. I thought I could get away without one but that was not the case. Works just fine. A good purchase.

For the money, this is a decent preamp. Easy to set up, easy to use, and it'll make your record player audible. For me, however, it ended up not being at the quality that I had wanted. There was a small, constant hum and became more noticeable the higher the volume setting. I tried to let it warm up for two or three weeks and the problem still persisted. The reason I gave this three stars though is due to the fact that the company was really cool and quick about returning it. Was given a full and timely refund and they even wanted to try to work something out when I first contacted them about my problem with it. Even if the preamp isn't great, I would definitely do business with phonopreamps.com again based off of their customer service. In short, I got what I paid for but wasn't up to my standards. Would recommend this to someone who wants a quick startup for a good price, wouldn't recommend it for those who are looking for a higher end audio experience.

On an Onkyo tx-nr515 without a preamp built into the 2012 unit!. (Took out the hissing and popping over the cheap $20 GE preamp I had installed). I will be buying another for my computer phonograph or turntable as you youngster's call them nowadays.

I am not an audiophile but I am certainly adept enough to properly install such a device...there are absolutely no "wiring issues" in the headshell or cartridge to account for the excessive noise encountered when trying to use this preamp...my turntable is a vintage Pioneer PL 518 from "back in the day" outfitted with a superior Audio-Technica cartridge which has performed flawlessly with my retro Onkyo stereo receiver for 35 years (I might have to consider dusting it off if this is the experience I can expect hooking up a preamp to an amplifier without phono input which is the only type of amplifier available nowadays)...I read a review elsewhere stating that in order to de-attenuate the hum this individual had to install a line filter between the device and the power supply - for someone better versed in electronics than me, not a bad idea at all...I am returning this device to the seller - whether it is worth the effort to try to purchase a preamp from another manufacture...maybe yes, maybe no

If someone out there has experienced the same hum issue with a preamp and has found a better alternative than this device, let me know - I would appreciate the advisement

This preamp works great for me. I had to attach a ground wire between it and my turntable to keep it from humming. After that, it was smooth sailing.
