Product Details

Behringer PP400 MICROPHONO Ultra-Compact Phono Preamp

In the age of the MP3, it can be easy to forget that a turntable signal needs a little help before it reaches a mixer or home stereo if it's going to be heard. Thanks to the PP400 phono preamp, your turntable will get the boost it needs to bring your vinyl to life.

Viva Vinyl
The ultra-compact PP400 features stereo RCA inputs and outputs, as well as a 1/4" TRS output jack. Its incredible low-noise operation delivers sound exactly as it's read from your records by the turntable's needle. Also included is a 12V adapter to power this awesome audio solution.

Do Wonders For Your Wax
Vinyl is making a huge comeback, and it's time to get your wheels spinning. Plug your turntable into the PP400, send a line out to a mixer or the AUX inputs on your home stereo, and take a spin on the freeway of retro-cool. For about the price of a couple of prerecorded CDs you can experience the high-fidelity sound of real vinyl, the medium that launched the rock and roll revolution.

Behringer PP400 MICROPHONO Ultra-Compact Phono Preamp is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Phono preampDisappointed that it doesn't provide enough volume from magnetic cartridge, and must increase volume dramatically above what it was for radio or CD/DVD through my receiver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phono preamp!I bought this unit to listen to some of my LP's that haven't been heard in many years. It's compact size makes it easy to place anywhere in your system. Very easy to use and set up. Plugged it in and sat back to enjoy my vinyl collection. Overall, very pleased with the performance of the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great preformance in a solid small packageI purchased this pre amp two weeks ago to replace one I installed in my turntable years ago. It's low level hum was getting worse!The Behringer PP400 pre amp is dandy for MM cartridges. It mounts in the turntable base with carpet tape. The performance is top notch. The RIAA equalization is spot on. The hum is totally gone. I'm very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pre-ampBought it for my B&O turntable, whose output was too low. Sweet little unit--compact--nicely engineered. Plug turntable in, output to receiver, plug into wall and voila!beautiful sound. No problem whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great pre amp at a great priceI received this pre amp without to many expectations, but I must say I can not believe how well this performs for the price, for the light to moderate vinyl lover this is perfect. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minor problems with noiseI'm using an AT-LP120 that has a noise-gate in the built-in pre-amp that I didn't like the sound of, so I bought one of these as a solution. Problem was this Behringer pre-amp gave me some considerable noise. The AT-LP120 has no ground line, so I experimented by grounding the pre-amp to the power outlet chassis screw. This reduced the noise considerably. It's not perfect, but I no longer detect any interference and normal listening volume (approx. -11db or lower). Hopefully this helps anyone else having similar issues. If you've experienced a similar problem yourself I encourage you to comment on this post.

Behringer PP400 MICROPHONO Ultra-Compact Phono Preamp

Hi! Just resurrected my Technics SL1900 TT, hooked it up to a Behringer PP400 and onto a Bose powered bookshelf speaker (Y audio cable). Great, except for the bass. Would it be OK to simultaneously connect a powered subwoofer to the remaining RCA output?

Asked by: Jim9958

Does the US version of the PP400 have a three-prong or two-prong connector into the wall?

Asked by: Happy7
This version uses a two prong plug.

I have this item on order, can't wait to hook it up to my old technics phono.  My old receiver had a switched power supply for a preamp, new one does not.  Will it be a problem to leave this on all the time?

Asked by: Stuf
No this will not be a problem.
