NAD’s PP-3 Digital Phono Preamp
March 27, 2009 by Arlen Schweiger

We’ve seen a nice little resurgence in vinyl the past couple of years, but not all of today’s receivers or preamps include a phono stage. So maybe you’ve got an old record player you want to re-incorporate into your entertainment system or maybe you’re looking to snag a new turntable.

NAD’s got the phono preamplifier to bring you the best of old analog and new digital worlds, with its new PP-3 Digital Phono Preamp.

The little $199 bugger includes a USB port and software (CD-R VinylStudio Lite) that lets you copy sources to a computer or directly to an MP3 player so they can be added to your growing digital music collection - whether you want to grab vinyl, cassette, FM or other source in your rig.

That’s been the charm of USB turntables, but if you want to bring more of a higher-end or mid-fi table into your system than what’s available in the USB realm, you can incorporate it through the phono preamp.

We know NAD has an affinity for the two-channel music lovers out there, so we’re guessing the PP-3 will play nicely within an all NAD system if you’re looking to go that route, too.
