Put the 9V. battery, connect the preamp between the turntable (know what that is?) and the PC using a "y" connector with 2 RCA's and a 3.5mm banana jack a the other (extra accessory cable), launch "Audacity" (free at http://audacity.sourceforge.net) and you are cooking. So simple, even I can do it...The sound quality is good but bear in mind that it will not make a worn LP sound new, and that I could not pass for a true audiophile.

No instructions, but after tinkering with it I found and removed the two screws that hold the cover on. Battery goes inside. Once that was done, the item worked fine. Very small amount of distortion on some very high notes, probably because there's no "de-emphasis circuit" (as I remember it being called), but otherwise sounds goood.

To install the 9 v. battery requires a screwdriver. The two screws are so tiny that it is easy to loose them. I also wonder how long the battery will last.

I used this for a turntable and a nano.

About Me Technically Challenged
I used this to hear my turntable due to lack of phono input and it also worked on my ipod Nano that for some reason I could not hear from my new sony reciever. Whats the deal with no instructions? Also it has a place for an adapter but they dont mention it at all they just assume you know. The universal adpater from Ryno does not fit this product. I put the grouding wire on the screw although I am still not sure if that is correct.

Just what the home theater needed
Great preamp for old turntables used with modern home theater systems. You can buy a universal adaptor to eliminate the use of a 9 volt battery. With the wall wart adaptor you can leave the unit on without the worry of a dead battery.
The performance of the GE pre-amplifier
The performance of the GE Pre-Amplifiermis more than I expected. It works very well with my turntable.

About Me Audiophile
This was returned as it added a significant hum to the signal. Unit runs on a 9V battery that runs down if you forget to turn it off. Has the ability to accept a 110V adaptor that must be purchased separately. Would suggest buying a new turntable with built it pre-amp before buying this.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This pre-amp works great! I no longer need a separate receiver and speakers just to operate my turntable. Saves a lot of space!
