This nifty little item is ideal for boosting and improving the sound of my old Technics turntable when hooked up to my wife's parents' old stereo console. The sound's warm and well-balanced and made my wife very happy, seeing the stereo able to be used again.

This would have been a great preamp if the ground connector worked as it should. This unit can not ground my turntable when I use grounding connector, so the typical hum from not grounding does not get removed. The alternative is to actually connect ground turntable cable to the grounding of the output cable or find another alternative. I am thinking about returning it.
Also, no ON/OFF switch and very bright led lights.

      Comments about ART DJPre II Phono Preamp:

      I have an older Kenwood receiver which requires a pre-amp for magnetic pick up needle turntable. I have quite a lot of old lps from the '60s and '70s , and about a 1000 45s up through the '80s. The DJ pre ll pre-amp does an excellent job bringing back the nostalgia.

          This item added volume to my Gemini TT2000 turntable. The preamp is needed when transferring vinyl to cd. A fun item for all DJ's just playing around to have fun.

            Got this so I could use one CDJ and one turntable while using my Serato SL2. Works perfect, and now with this great phono preamp I am able to keep my vinyl skills along with my CDJ skills. great price and great sound qaulity. Also comes with a gain control to help with the my Serato set up! Again, great and outstanding unit

            Great little phone preamp. Had turntable hooked up to old stereo with built in phono preamp but that didn't sound optimal and noisy so I bought this to plug in to AUX input on that stereo. When I plugged it in and played back my records, I was astounded with thje clarity and the added boost to low end!! It's solid, well built and just works!! Buy it, you won't regret it!!

                Makes it much easier to use my old dual 606 turntable on my dj rig. Easy to use, sounds great. The trim pot and input cap adjustments are very useful.

                      Excellent for converting my classic vinyl to digital (flag) format. I paired this with the m-audio MobilePre for input to my computer and the quality was everything I could ask for in a sub $500 setup.
