    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!!

    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.

        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

            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.

                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.

                  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.

                  Comments about ART DJPre II Phono Preamp:

                  Have been looking for a decent pre-amp for a couple years now. Since all I have left from my full setup is the turntable. After reading reviews online and doing a lot of research, I decided to pick up this little gem. I was blown away! It sounds so good, it's amazing! You can switch capacitance depending on your cartridge type, and it makes the records sound even better then before. The auto line leveling is an amazing thing to hear, cutting out his without sacrificing quality!

                  Unbelievable Value

                  from West Virginia, USA

                  Ask me a question

                  Comments about ART DJPre II Phono Preamp:

                  This thing is unbelievable. For the price, it has lots of features - I haven't seen any preamp in this price range with gain adjustment or LF rolloff. The gain adjustment is superb and even provided enough boost to let me use a MC cartridge (although this is NOT designed for them). It also has a 100pf/200pf switch that (to my ears) does nothing - supposedly it adjusts input impedance.This little gem is built like a tank and has great sound with very little noise. It's nearly perfect. The only complaint I have is about the obnoxious blue LED light that illuminates my entire living room at night. What were they thinking?
