About the NAD PP-2

A lot of receivers and amplifiers these days lack the phonograph input you need to hook up your turntable. And when manufacturers do include one, they sometimes use low-cost, low-performance circuitry that yields thin, lifeless results. NAD's clean, simple PP-2 phono preamp takes advantage of high-quality, close-tolerance parts to give you the warm, richly detailed sound that vinyl is famous for, at a bargain price.
