DJPRE II: Phono Preamp for Modern DJs!ARTcessories are a full line of clever, affordable processing tools for live sound, stage, and studio. The ARTcessories line is designed to deliver solutions for a number of audio needs - like having phantom power, having one or two more mixing channels, testing cables, headphone processing, preamplification for microphones and turntables, and many more real-world applications. With their affordable prices and simple design, the new line of ARTcessories will satisfy the needs of working musicians and sound engineers everywhere.
The ART DJPRE II solves the three basic problems common to vinyl records:
In the mid-1950s, the Recording Industry Association of America established compensation standards. The resulting RIAA preamp has been built into every hi-fi and stereo amplifier with phono or turntable inputs since then. A separate RIAA preamp is necessary when you are connecting a turntable to a mixer that does not have one built in.
The DJPRE II features an RIAA-type phono preamp circuit housed in a rugged metal case with full patching facilities for connecting it to a phono turntable and mixer.

The soundstage is awesome..much fuller than the PP400. When I compared some wave files of the exact song between both the DJ Pre II and the PP400 there was an noticeable difference. The file captured with the Art seemed to be wider and much fuller. This sound translated well when I converted the files for redbook cd burning!! close [-]

Art DJ Pre II works great with old turntable
by Christy from Apex, NCI recently replaced my old failing Fisher turntable with a very nice Technics SL-D5, and discovered that I needed a pre-amp to boost the signal into my equally old Fisher receiver. The old turntable h... read more [+]ad not required a pre-amp. I was specifically looking for something with a good signal response, and the Art DJ Pre II had very good reviews compared to similar products. The price was very reasonable and it sounded well-made.

The product performed exactly as specified. It was easy to connect and provided the necessary signal boost so my records play at a normal volume again. We tested it on a live concert recording and the audio sounded better than with the old turntable. The combination of the Technics and the Art DJ Pre II produced very nice results.
The unit is well made. There is nothing flimsy about it. It has a couple filtering options (button controlled), which I assume will be helpful for certain kinds of music, although I haven't played with it enough to notice any significant difference. The gain is adjustable, with a handy LED that shows signal clipping. The Art DJ Pre II does not have a power switch, and the blue power on LED is very bright, so the unit puts out a lot of light all the time unless you unplug it or connect it to an on/off power source. It might be nice if a future version included an on/off but this was a pretty minor flaw. This is a great product!
Sweetwater also provided outstanding, personalized customer service. close [-]

by Lew from Sterling VAWorked great! Plugged in and everything worked great out of the package. The level adjustment is a great feature to allow you to balance the sound with the other source components.
