LKG Riaa Turntable Phono Pre-Amp

This high quality stereo preamplifier will allow you to replace a Crystal or ceramic stereo cartridge with a better quality magnetic stereo cartridge while using the original stereo amplifier supplied with your turntable. The use of the preamplifier in conjunction with a magnetic cartridge will give you CD quality sound out of your vintage turntable.

Solid State Moving Magnet Stereo Phono Preamplifier

How To Install
1). Connect shielded cable from the record changer to the appropriate input jacks on the PRE600.
2). Connect the other shielded cable from the out put jacks on the PRE600 to the high level inputs on the amplifier. On a stereo amplifier these will be marked crystal, ceramic or AUX.
3). Plug the line cord into any 117V AC outlet. Even though the power requirement of the PRE600 is very low, it is recommended that unplug the AC cord if you do not plan to use it for a long period of time.
4). NOTE: If your changer is equipped with a ground lead, connect it to the amplifier chassis, not the preamplifier.

FROM TurntableNeedles.com :
on't even think about replacing a ceramic with magnetic cartridge in an old record player unless you are a qualified electronics repair technician. We will not assist non technical persons in this matter.

Troubleshooting for all preamps:

Are you getting a 60hz hum when the phono preamp is hooked into your receiver/computer?

  • Make sure it is NOT hooked into a 'PHONO' input it is designed to hook into 'TAPE CD AUX' etc inputs!
  • Make sure your house outlet is grounded properly with a little 3 PRONG plugin tester from radio shack or a hardware store.
  • Make sure you are connecting the third grounding wire coming out of the turntable to the external METAL framework of your receiver or computer.
  • If you get a loud hum when hookin up only the preamp to your receiver/computer, this does not indicate a fault in the RCA preamp. Many electronic circuits require something called 'termination' When the inputs of an amp or preamp are 'floating' then the output will reflect this.

This RCA to 3.5mm plug is what you will need for your computer hookup.

Typical Preamp connection to a computer soundcard. And here it is in action!

We also have a regular 'RCA' to 'RCA' patch cord to connect the output of the pre-amp to your stereo. If you don't have any additional 'RCA' type stereo patch cords sitting around you may wish to have us send one along with your new preamp.

LKG PRE600RIAA Turntable Phono PreAmp
The service department is a national treasure. After ordering the wrong needle, Kyle in service listened to what I had discovered and shipped what I needed. A pre-amplifier to work with a home theater amplifier that had replaced my tube amplifier and a vinyl to digital transfer phono-cartridge. It didn't dawn on me that I needed more than just a needle to make my old pioneer turntable sing. When I made the amplifier change I kind of wondered why the volume was weaker. Now, with the right components, I have a quality sound and some real volume. Kyle, in service, stuck with me thru a couple of mailings and returns before I discovered my error. I can assure anyone who reads this that turntableneedles.com is totally committed to our listening pleasure and satisfaction.

LKG Phono Pre Amp
You won't find a phono pre-amp for this price that doesn't need a "wall wart" . It has a direct connection to your wall inlet. Plus it sounds good enough to playback you old vinyl. Noise floor is very low. The only negative is that it doesn't have a designated ground, however; with a little ingenuity, one can attached your ground to any number of screws on the chassis.

Good Value But Some Problems
I ordered this unit because I liked the idea of the metal package and of not having to use a wall wart. It got some decent reviews for the price. It seemed to work OK, but there is some hum from the internal power supply even though there is a metal divider between the power supply and the amplifier. I added a ground lug and installed a couple of screws to hold the case halves together for better shielding. The unit worked upon reassembly but soon went dead. The problem turned out to be a small .1 uf ceramic bypass capacitor across the power supply output. The capacitor shorted and took the supply voltage down. Fortunately no other components were damaged b the short. I replaced the capacitor with a larger, higher voltage one. It took some hacking to get it to fit, but it did solve the problem. I ended up admitting to the fact that this might be one place where a wall wart might be an advantage. I usually try to avoid them. I got an ART Precision preamp with an external transformer. There is no hum with that one. The LKG unit is fine for casual listening. I'll keep it around for that. I'm going to be doing some digitizing so I won't use it for that. The LKG unit is nicely designed for the money and is a conveniently mounted package; but they need a bit more headroom in some at least one of the components. They should also include a ground screw and have better electrical connection between the top and bottom parts of the case to take full advantage of the nice metal case.

Turntable Needles .com was extremely helpful in selecting a cratridge and stylus . The order arrived quickly and without any incorrect items. The preamp is a good unit and sounds finer than frog hair .

Can't beat the price
You're not going to beat this quality until you get into several hundred dollar preamps, so it's hard to complain about this $30 one. People experiencing hum may want to connect their TT's ground to one of the screws on the preamp case, that eliminated it for me. Fairly warm, full sound. I'd recommend this to anyone just getting started.

LKG RIAA Turntable Phono PreAmp
I purchased the LKG RIAA Turntable Phono PreAmp and the Stop-a-Clicks-II cleaner. I am now able to listen to my collection of classical recordings with remarkable clarity. I am very thankful for the help and advice of Kyle in the customer service department. I would recommend Turntable Needles to anyone who still enjoys listening to LPs.

PreAmp PRE600
Wanted to hookup my old turntable to a new home theatre system. Found the PRE600 preamp to make the transition. Priced right, works great, easy to install, quick turnaround on order. Highly recommend.

I purchased this to boost the signal going from my turntable to my studio monitors. Works great! Sound is clear and I barely have to crank the volume on my monitors for it to be loud.

Works great
Bought this for my daughter who discovered that her parent's old LPs are "cool". Had an old stereo whose phono input had lost a channel so needed a pre-amp to be able to use the Aux input. Great value and works just fine. Nice to hear the old LPs again.

Had hoped for a little better sound but for the price I couldn't go too wrong. I have to educate myself better to decide if I want to upgrade. Over all I'm satisfied.
