There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Having read the reviews here, I expected there to be at least some degree of hum once I started spinning the black circle. To my delight, there was none, zero, squat. Not sure why others were experiencing hum, but mine is perfectly quiet.
Well made and as good of a value as I can imagine. No need to spend more. Buy this and be done with it.
I tried everything and anything to stop or help the level of static, but to no avail. Unplugged the amp/phono from the power strip, moved all of the wires so there as absolutely no cross interface... etc etc. I finally unplugged the phono from the pre-amp and discovered it was the Rolls, not the U-turn that was causing the static.
Returned right away and bought a Cambridge Audio pre-amp for about twice the price. It's dead silent and now my little set up sounds amazing. If I didn't have the budget, I think most pre-amps built into older receivers DO sound better than this rolls, so I'd probably just try to find an old used amp with a phono input and save myself the headache of having all separate components.
Solid stereo seperation, soundstage is lacking but acceptable. In a small room with bookshelves this would be a hit, and as such I’m moving it to my office setup so I can compare it against my Marantz’s built in phono
Vintage Marantz TT—>Rolls—->Elac Integrated—>Q Acoustics 3050
Cons: No power switch? Ground plug kind of moody, took a little noodling to kill the hum.
Pro: Small. Not ugly. Solid output that feels like it is boxing above it's weight.
To put into perspective:
Having paid 50 bucks: 5 Stars
If I had paid 100: 4 Stars
If I had paid 200+ 3 Stars

damn do I wish it had an off switch though, I don't play records enough to want that stupid green light on all the time.
Not quite aesthetically superb, but easy to hide.
