By Ross D. on December 29, 2017
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.
stereo components, i.e., Thorens, Marantz, SME. At one time i had a bi-amped system with 365 watts per channel in a
10 by 12 room. My system now is down to Polk floor standing speakers, two turntables, a Connoisseur i bought in '77
and a Sony PS-LX3 direct drive i bought recently for convenience. power is a 1994 Onkyo pro-logic receiver running
80 watts per channel in stereo. Thought i had a pretty fair sounding system. bought this pre-amp because i was going
to change to an amplifier with no phono stage.
upon in stalling the Rolls, i was immediately struck how noise free and transparent the sound was. i first played a
Crosby, Stills, & Nash cut of thrift shop LP and was blown away. what quickly caught my attention was the subtil
fade on the voices of the reverb on them. also, it seems that the minor pops and clicks were greatly diminished.
Next up was Abba's 'Voulez-Vous' Lp. In particular, the cut 'Chiquitta', which has quite a great dynamic range in spots.
there is a spot in the song where there is a pause in the singing, and then bang, the girls starting singing at quite a
volume. the silence coming off the record was like it was black. the vocals seemingly jumped out from nowhere.
i could go on raving about the rolls, but if you have a system to challenge this unit, you will be amazed!
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
