By Randall G. Goodwin on January 7, 2006
I've been attempting to move my LP collection to my computer for some time now. I've tried numerious pieces of hardware and software but never got the results I was looking for. I finally decided to scrap everything and go with an inexpensive preamp. I was totally unprepared for the I got. My very first recording was better than anything I had previously recorded. I was so happy after my third attempt that I spent the next several hours recording LP's I hadn't heard in years. Forget the fancy amps, heads, and mixers. This unit will you allow to enjoy the music once again.

When I first hooked up the preamp I experienced an electronic hum. Annoying at low volume. The it dawned on me my old turntable had a ground wire. Loosened a screw on my receiver case and attached. Hum gone! Sounds good to my ears.

I was digitizing my album collection and was using a McLelland pre-amp. The McLelland pre-amp was more expensive than the Pyle and had better specs. (It had a better signal to noise ratio.) During recording, there would be occasional "dropouts" where sound would be lost for a second. At first, I accepted this as an isolated quirk and just re-recorded the songs where that occurred.

That got real old after ten albums and I decided to try and nail down the problem. I first swapped out the turntable cartridge and needle, but the problem persisted. I then swapped out the McLelland pre-amp for the Pyle....no more dropouts!

Not only that, but the bass was much improved and the sound was louder. I'm using Audacity (an awesome free editing program) and had to amplify the songs after they were recorded using the McLelland and the bass was also very weak.

This just goes to show you that more expensive doesn't necessarily mean better. I now have a thirty dollar paperweight.

I'm in the process of re-recording the albums that were recorded using the McLelland pre-amp and the Pyle has been performing without a hitch. There's no need to amplify the songs recorded using the Pyle so it's one less thing to have to do.

The Pyle pre-amp is deceivingly small. It measures approximately 3 9/16" L X 2 1/8" W x 1 1/8" H. It doesn't have a dedicated grounding terminal like the McLelland but that isn't a problem at all. There's 4 Philips head screws on the unit. I inserted a small washer under the screw that's closest to the phono input jacks. To attach the ground wire from the turntable, I just loosen the screw and slip the prong from the grounding wire between the washer and the unit and tighten the screw. This works like a charm, no buzz/hum.

I got this a couple months ago when I got a new home theater without a Phono input. This thing works fine. I considered higher priced pre-amps, but am glad I just picked this one up on the cheap. No hum, no worries, no complaints.

I just picked up much of the original Beatles collection on vinyl at an estate sale and dug out my turntable, with Audio Technica AT91E cartridge. My Sony integrated amp/receiver did not have a phono input. Reading the reviews here on Amazon, I decided to order this preamp. The first listen to Sgt. Pepper was glorious! I have fallen in love with music again. Records have dynamics. CDs are highly compressed. This preamp sounds awesome.

I also tested a 1980's Kenwood receiver that had a phono input. I connected the Pyle phono preamp to the line input and did an A/B test between the Kenwood's phono section and the Pyle. The Pyle won. It had better frequency response, wider image and was more organic sounding. The output of the Pyle matched the line level input of the Kenwood but sounded a little low on my nicer Sony amp. So, the complaints below of low output level may be dependent on the amp used. There was no noticeable hum or noise. The included "wall wart" 12VDC supply is not regulated. Unloaded, in measures over 15 volts. I may build a nicer supply for it but, I digress...

The only negative I can give it is that the RCA jacks were slightly tarnished. The unit I received may have sat on a shelf for a long time. Still, it worked flawlessly. A ground wire attachment point would have been nice but I easily connected the turntable ground wire to the ground on my receiver.

If you want to rediscover the great sound of records, the Pyle Phono Preamp will get you there. I recommend it.

Got it yesterday, plugged it in and it works great. I did notice a couple of changes from what is shown in the picture and described by others. One is a cosmetic change with the printed graphics on the unit. The thing that I was pleasantly surprised by, though, is they have added a real ground thumb screw. I used it to easily ground the turntable with no need for a screwdriver.

I bought the preamp to connect my phono turntable to the line in jack on my computer. By adding an RCA to Mini adapter and cable the preamp allowed me to transfer my records to .wav files on my computer. The signal directly from the turntable was to low but adding the preamp gave me plenty of amplitude.

My turntable had a magnetic needle cartridge and I couldn't get any volume for recordings out of it when hooked to my PC. So I bought this Pyle pre-amp. Hooking it up is a breeze and it amplifies the signal perfectly so I now get excellent recordings. I've already copied over 60 of my LP's with this super device. I highly recommend this Pyle pre-amp. Good price, strong, well designed metal case, made to last.
