Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris5111215 humming, failing, waste of time.
When I bought my new amp it didn't have a built in phono stage and as an after thought I picked this up. I expected to get what I'd paid for cheap and cheerful, maybe more of the cheap than anything else.
I was a little disappointed to find it didn't have a grounding post for my turntable but I can live with that, at first it hummed a little bit as to be expected with a non-grounded turntable although the right channel hummed a lot more than the left. I switched cables about on the hope the humming might just be a dodgy connection, no such luck.
I've had the product about 2 months, the right channel now doesn't work at all and the left channel hums and buzzes away. Even without an input plugged in it buzzes. I would recommend anyone thinking about buying this product think again, splash out the extra £30/£40 and get the cambridge phono stage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by George51 Excellent product, best delivery arrangements ever via DPD
Product works very well and other reviews about eliminating turntable ground loop hum proved invaluable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tiward20 Does what it should
the pre-amp is excellent value for money, and does exactly what it says. the only downside is it has no earth with the phono input. Other than that is great.
Sound quality is great, I haven't used any other more expensive ones so cannot compare, but I don't get any interference

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimi1984 Does a good job
I had a turntable and a hifi system without a phono in, so when I would listen to a record the sound quality was poor. Then I bought this little preamp and now I have a great rich tone and greater volume capabilities. Product was exactly what I needed and good value. One small thing I would change about the product; I would want the stereo phono in's to be on the back so it would look tidier when hooked up but other than that very good product for the cash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stavros This product does what it says on the tin
This pre-amp just works! It is small, unobtrusive and essentially simple - and it just works with my lower-end Ariston deck. Great value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by dahgigman Good value
Having bought a Project turntable from RicherSounds along with an AV I discovered I needed a pre-amp. I plugged it all together last night - followed others advice and earthed the turntable using one of the screws on the pre-amp and all good. Stuck a bit of rock on and was astonished at the sound quality. Vinyl is the future! BTW I am back to RS (my first point of call for home entertainment because of their excellent customer care) tomorrow to buy a new tele!
