Phono Turntable Pre-Amplifier
Ultra Compact Phono Turntable Pre-Amplifier w/ 9V Battery CompartmentFeatures:
What's in the Box:
This electronic preamplifier stands up to the test and will provide you with serious sound performance. The PP555 is perfect for bringing your studio equipment's phono-level output to a more suitable line-level output. Compact preamp features include 9 Volt Battery Compartment, Dedicated RCA 1/4-Inch Output Connectors and power Adaptor. It'll take your audio signal, amplify its strength and prepare it for further processing by your studio equipment. Pre-amps technically provide voltage gain to your desired equipment and are key to assisting the signal source, whether it's a turntable, musical instrument or microphone. The ultra-low noise audio conditioning circuitry allows the pre-amp to boost audio to levels that are more manageable for various types of audio equipment. You'll find it easier to adjust the recording level volumes of different sources from microphones and instruments alike. You should position your preamp close to the source to reduce unwanted noise and interference. Pre-amps can sometimes come built into the stereo equipment, but if that's not the case, the PP555 is an easy install, wise choice and great addition to any musician or producer. Take your sounds and audio production skills to the next level with the PP555 Phono Turntable Preamplifier.

I really thought of going with something more expensive. Please note, I had nothing to compare it to. So I ran it straight into the receivers vs through this box straight into my computer, then back to those same receivers. Untouched sounded slightly better straight into either of my JVC 517v receiver. But here's the catch, slight adjustments to the computer and all bets are off.
The computer can add reverb, EQ, Noise Reduction, range expansion, widen or narrow the separation and even slow or speed up without distortion or the pitch going nuts. Meanwhile, any of this done on the receiver, via the receiver does more harm in too many cases. I played Rap, rock, Classical, old school motown, soul, and even compared CD's some of the same stuff I have records, Amazing! I can't see myself buying something more expensive without an A vs B comparo!
Here's what I'm using.
I have a DIYer computer with an old Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Music that rated at about 101db, makes me miss the Auzen Prelude card that died. I'm using the line-level input and it is important that you not use it as MIC. As a source (Mobo sound card switched from MIC to Line-Level input) I never use motherboard sound.
Phono's Red and White RCA connectors to the Preamp box's Input. Output the computer using something like ""AmazonBasics 3.5mm to 2-Male RCA Adapter Cable - 4 Feet"or the Monoprice equivalent.
There has to be better more expensive solutions/options out there but this thing rocked. I have a Technics SL-Q300 Turntable (Record player LOL) and had thought my needle/stylus was worn out! Even ordered a cheap needle to check this, but the old needle under magnification showed it had gunk on it. A little WD-40 and alcohol plus q-tip and all is good again. $47 needle/Stylus sounds like $47 and the $19 sounds like, well, $19 LOL! But that's not really fair. I'll keep new needle for a back up though.
I would buy this Preamp again if needed and will tell friends about it. If this is confusing, please ask questions. I use two receivers for sound from my computer, Ole school JVC for left and right sounds for music and a newer Harman Kardon AVR 246 for discrete analog 5.1 sound for games and etc...........
It is very quiet--I am powering it from the 2020ti's 12VDC "wall wart" switching power supply via a coaxial power splitter "Y" cable--powering it from a 9V battery changed nothing. It's design does roll-off the bass response below 20 Hz to provide some "rumble" filtering; my previous low-end pre-amp (a Velleman 2573 unit) did not do this and the turntable's (a solid plinth Rega Planar 3) rumble was quite pronounced.
I like it, combined with the Lepai amp it produces great sound...
Upon further testing, the output ALWAYS cuts out after about 5 minutes of use. Almost like the circuitry is over-heating.
Normally, I'm okay with Pyle. Budget stereo equipment when you don't need audiophile quality. I have two of their amps. But, the problem I have is that Pyle has wasted more than $20 of my personal time on their shoddy Chinese garbage. That's annoying. Pass and buy one that costs twice as much and start there. That's what I'll be doing right now.
