Flat and uninspiring. Exactly the same product as another brand but at twice the price. Wish I knew sooner so that I could return for a refund.

Disappointing

Paul from Landers, California on 9/16/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Regardless of how I ground this device I still get a steady 60hrz hum through my amp.

Pros: Small footprint, easy to hook-up.

Cons: I get a steady 60hrz hum through my amp with this device, regardless of how it's grounded.

Crutchfield response on 9/20/2016
Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help Paul. We'll either help him get the preamp working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.

Works like a charm.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Replaced an older Yamaha receiver with a newer one that required a pre-amp so I could use my turntable. Plugged in cables and had sound. Works well.

Pros: Price and works fine.

Cons: None
