LD Systems PPA 2 Phono Preamplifier
If you're looking for a small but excellent phono preamplifier then the LD Systems PPA 2 is the phono preamplifier for you. It's compact design means it won't be an intrusion on your pre-existing home music set up and will allow you to connect your turntable to any equipment without a phono input.
The LD Systems PPA 2 is a very compact analogue phono preamplifier, which equalises the extremely low output signal of conventional turntables to RIAA standards. It allows you to connect to devices without any phono input, such as mixers, PA power amplifiers or sound cards.
The phono inputs are designed as RCA jacks, just like the line outputs; the PPA 2 also has a screw terminal for the ground conductor of the turntable and a 6.3 mm stereo jack for connecting a headset. The THD factor of the preamplifier is below 0.05% and the channel separation is -75 dB.
The LD Systems PPA 2 uses a 12 V AC adapter; a bright LED indicates the power supply on the top of the sturdy metal chassis.

This is one of the most simple and amazing preamps I have ever used. It does absolutely everything I need it to, which in my case is playing as a midpoint for my record player and my AV receiver. It is fantastic value and works perfectly at a very cheap price. Would highly recomment buying it if you need a preamp.
