Very good low cost option for a turntable without a preamp. Not sure I would replace a turntable preamp with it but for what I need, it’s a good product.

Fast delivery, works great

Works perfectly to amplify a turntable we purchased.

Easy to install

Product was exactly what I needed for my turntable.

Will it work with a Yamaha turntable?

It will work with any turntable with rca output connectors

Will this work for stanton t.62 turntable and onkyo tx-sr393?

I use it for an old Yamaha turntable and new Onkyo and it works fine. Not sure if that helps.

Nice

Easy install works great with my vintage turntable.

It does as advertised

Great product for turntables

Perfect solution for Optonica turntable

Great product, no frequency loss, well made.

I have a sansui fr-d35 turntable that is plugged into a bose lifestyle 48 system, the volume is very low. will this help?

I believe it will do the trick, I used mine with a vintage turntable and a Bose 321 system.

Will this preamp significantly improve my sound quality if I am used to using a turntable that has a built in preamp?

I couldn't answer that question but it has provided excellent sound quality for me with my turntable.

Turntable pre amp.

Good unit for the price.

Clean sound!

Works nicely with a Thorens turntable.

I have a old school sanui turntable with a ceramic cartrige. will this pre amp work with a ceramic cartrige?

yes

I need to go from my record player into two active studio monitors but I need a way to control volume from it too. Can I do that with this device?

i use this as a preamp between my turntable and tube amp which outputs to a pair of passive speakers. it works like a dream and provides nice boost. you can control the volume from it, so i'm guessing that it'd work for your needs.

Turntable outputs humming noises removed.

This preamplifier works wonderfully. I have struggled many weeks trying to get rid of annoying humming from my B&O 4002 phono output. Once this preamplifier got setup and speakers were very quiet.

That it worked with my turn table.

It hooked up great with no problems & it was just what I needed to get my turntable working without having to buy an extra receiver. It plugged right in to my Bose Receiver & turntable & works Great.

If i use this amp and a turntable going to non powered speakers where would control the volume?

it's not that kind of amp, it just boosts signal from turntable levels to what your amplifier needs to power speakers, not to power speakers alone.

I have a turntable with a built in preamp and I was wondering if using this preamp instead would significantly improve my sound?

It depends. Honestly, this is great preamp—for those without amplified sound.. say directly from a turntable. However, to answer to your question; yes and no. It is in most cases. But if you are looking for a BassNectar brain melter, you are in the wrong preamp search. Quality>improve sound (assumily loudness). Love you, mean it.

WOW

…I like my turntable a lot, and I love listening to the records.…I highly recommend adding this to your used turntable.

I have a dual cs1257 turntable through a nad t257 amp. is this the preamp i need to jack up the volume

Yup! This will take the relatively quiet un-amplified signal coming from any older or higher quality turntables and boost it to 'line level' so you can play back through a receiver that does not have built-in 'phono' amplification... so you can actually hear it! This should solve your problem nicely, and the unit looks great to boot : P

I have a Capehart turntable and I want to use it to record old records to my computer--can I use this to jack up the signal sent to the computer?

Yeah, would do exactly that for you! Not familiar w/ Capehart, but almost all turntables meant to be connected to component stereos were built without built-in amplifiers, so the signal they output was very quiet if plugging them directly into speakers, a computer, etc. This handy (and kinda beautiful) little device will take that signal and boost it to 'line level' (the volume level we're used to hearing out of anything you plug headphones into) with as little noise/distortion as possible.

Turntable pre-amp

It works, and it is a good value.

how to connect with a Sony receiver and a turntable

Plug turntable into PylePro inputs. Plug the PylePro outputs into a tape or aux input on receiver. Connection is same for any receiver. PylePro comes with good instructions.

Can you use this with any turntable?

This would be an impossible question to answer. I use it with an older technics turntable that doesn't have a pre-amp. I cannot guarantee it would work with any turntable ever made, but surely one without a built-in pre-amp that has RCA outputs (red and white cables) should be a good bet. And you can't beat the price.

Connecting turntable to newer amp

This pre-amp is an effective and inexpensive solution to the problem of not being able to hook up a turntable to newer amplifiers that no longer contain phono inputs or pre-amps.…

Turntable now works!

Quite simply, it makes my turntable work with the amplifier!…

I have a sony multi channel av receiver str-dn1000, there is no input for a turntable or an aux input will this product help me ?

Yes! A turntable needs a pre-amp. They can be built into the turntable (sometimes available on newer turntables) or can be built into the receiver (which would be marked as phono in, as you mentioned). As long as you have a spare RCA input this will plug in there.

Do I connect the ground wire from the Pyle to the receiver ground or from the turntable ground to the receiver?

I connected the ground wire from the Pyle to the turntable ground wire. Worked fine!

Love it, sounds fantastic with my Pro-Ject turntable.

Great for Pro-Ject Debut Carbon

Pairs very well with the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon turntable.

Excellent Preamp. Great for the Teac TN-350 turntable.

I recently purchased this preamp as an upgrade for the Teac TN-350 / TN-350-WA. It was a noticeable improvement over the onboard phono preamp and I highly recommend!

Will this work with a 25 year old Technics turntable and a new Yamaha receiver?

I am using this with a 25 year old Technics turntable, so yes. However, most new receivers have these built in so make sure its something you really need.

Just to be clear, my AVR (Onkyo tx-nr535) doesn't have a phono input. Do I connect the turntable to this device and plug this device into my AUX port?

yes, this unit gives enough of a boost to power the turntable.

Perfect for my AT-LP60!

Newbie here. Will this allow me to hear records when connecting a pro-ject debut carbon turntable (no preamp) to audioengine a5+ powered speakers?

Yes, you need this to properly listen to your records. It is the setup I have and sounds amazing. Great speakers and great turntable.

Would I hook this up to my project esprit turntable and then plug my speakers in?

Thanks very much for your question. Your turntable would connect to the phono preamp and the phono preamp will then connect to a stereo amplifier which would not have a phono input, and speakers. World Wide Stereo is 40 years old and a proud authorized Pro-Ject dealer.

Works beautifully with Audio-Technica AT-LP60 Turntable

…I had a good feeling that this would work with my turntable because the AT-LP60 has a built in switchable pre-amp and I also have a phono pre-amp input on my 100 watt solid state amp. Switched the turntable to phono (no pre-amp), plugged into the phono input on my amp and I can't stop playing my records! (You can also switch the turntable to line out if you don't have a phono pre-amp in your amplifier and plug into aux ports.)…

Good deal.

Adds richness to the sound, especially on lower end turntables and speakers.…

This is not a phono preamp! It is a great preamp though. Update broken in 35 days.

Not enough power

The warm tones of analog audio might seem like a posh status symbol for the hipster elite, but there’s a reason that vinyl is so popular among the bohemian class: Great-sounding and fun vinyl setups don’t actually have to cost an arm and a leg. They can be pieced together and slowly upgraded over time. If you’re just starting your first vinyl collection and own a solid turntable, the next big piece of the listening puzzle could be a phono preamp.
