Compact, Cost-Effective and sophisticated, PP-3 Digital Phono Preamp Lets Users Enjoy and Digitize Vinyl LP Collections and More

NAD Electronics introduced the PP-3 Digital Phono Preamplifier, an accessory that integrates turntables into stereo systems and allows LPs and other audio sources to be copied directly to a PC.

Compact and cost-effective, the PP-3 Phono Preamp provides superb audiophile performance in a clean, simple package only 5.3 inches long by 1.38 inches high by 2.75 inches deep. It combines the design of its predecessor, NAD’s award-winning PP-2 MM/MC Phono Preamp, with a high-quality analog-to-digital converter, a USB interface, and CD-R VinylStudio Lite software. The program, supplied on a disc, lets users copy LPs directly to a PC in Wav or MP3 file formats. Once in a PC, the digitized music can be burned onto discs, transferred to portable music players or otherwise manipulated.

Today’s digital components often overlook the needs of analog music fans, as expressed in LP records, an immense source of superb audio performances. Many A/V receivers, amplifiers, and preamp/processors simply omit phonograph inputs and phono-preamp circuitry. In many others, the phono section is an afterthought designed for the most basic functionality. In NAD’s view, this state of affairs creates a clear opportunity. The PP-3 has been designed to serve as a high-quality upgrade or addition to existing line-level system.

An additional Line Input allows other analog sources — such as FM radio, audiotape, even a CD player’s analog output — to be converted to the digital USB format. It also adds back the input on an amplifier or receiver used by the PP-3.

The PP-3 Digital Phono Preamplifier is available now from authorized NAD dealers at a suggested price of $179.
