It's true that vinyl records are making a comeback in popularity, but an important component of the pre-digital era is not well-represented in modern audio equipment.


Phono Preamplifiers are designed to amplify and improve the quality of signals heard when listening to vinyl or other audio sources, by passing the audio signal through a circuit to raise the gain, before inputting it back into the stereo receiver.

The Dayton Audio VP1 Phono Preamplifier is a budget-priced analog preamplifier with high-quality features needed to listen to your favorite records with the best quality possible!

An audiophile-grade signal path allows the Dayton Audio VP1 to transparently drive any standard input with it's +11dBV output. Built-in RIAA Equalization guarantees a balanced tone from moving magnet cartridges. You don't have to be an audio engineer to use this, simply use the RCA outputs to connect to a receiver or use the 1/4” connector on the front of the VP1!

By simply adding the Dayton Audio VP1 between your turntable and your receiver, you are getting the best sound quality from your equipment!
