The same great quality performance as Pro-Ject's highly respected Phono Box II, except now there's the addition of a high-quality A/D converter!
Now at the same time as listening to your music through your traditional hi-fi, you can record your vinyl to a computer or laptop, which will later allow you to transfer your music to your iPod or other digital music source. The front-facing attenuator on the unit allows for full control over the gain of your USB signal; this can help avoid distorted and/or 'clipping' recordings. This unit also benefits from a Line input, allowing you to record Line-Level sources, such as a tape deck, to your computer as well.
I bought this unit to replace a different Pro-Ject Preamp/ADC which had fixed gain into the ADC, and unfortunately exhibited peak clipping on the digital USB output when driven from the MM cartridge on my turntable arm.The present unit has a variable gain control for the ADC (hence the 'V' in the name), which gets over the basic problem.It also works well as a preamp.However, the Gain control knob has no adequate markings or scale to indicate its position (just a tiny indentation on the top end of the knob - which I didn't even notice at first!), so once you have spent time finding the optimum level (in my case for making digital recordings from LP records), the precise setting can be lost if the knob is moved. I shall probably have to resort to pencil marks!
