The ART USB Phono Plus is the ideal solution for transferring any highly prized vinyl collection to your computer or laptop. It is also the ideal high performance audio interface between analog and digital sources. Built in low-noise RIAA phono pre-amp circuit with low cut filters (to remove rumble and noise) guarantee pristine audio capture.

Front mounted gain control and Signal/Clip LED allows easy optimization of a wide range of analog input sources. The USB Monitor/headphone provides zero latency monitoring of the input source for easy cueing. The USB PhonoPlusPS can also act as audio playback source for any USB equipped computer or laptop. Optical TOSLINK Input and Output as well as an S/PDIF Input make the USB PhonoPlusPS an ideal analog / digital audio to USB interface as well.

The built-in low noise Phono Preamp circuit is highly accurate and precisely conforms to the RIAA standard. The Line Out jacks are always connected to the input preamp signal for source monitoring or to allow use as a stand-alone phono preamp.

Housed in an all aluminum black anodized case, the USB PhonoPlusPS can be powered by either external power supply or directly via USB port. To ensure maximum versatility, the USB PhonoPlusPS is fully compliant with the USB 2.0 specification and uses USB adaptive mode for playback and USB asynchronous mode for record.

It will work with Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista/7 USB audio device drivers as well as Apple OS9.1/OS-X computers with native USB support.

USB PhonoPlusPS ships with SoundSaver Express software.

Great product


Excellent sound for my technics



Happy with USB phono plus preamp


Nice little preamp that works great for transferring albums to computer. Solidly built. Works great via USB power, just make sure you have the right cord.



I would recommend this product to others.


It sounds great with Graco stylus on my turntable! I would highly recommend it to others. Awesome sound at all spectrums! That it has adjustment makes it easier to adjust saturation between different album types, older and newer.



Great Product For Digitizing Cassettes and LPs


The is a well made "industrial strength" preamp. I'm using it to "digitize" old cassette tapes and LPs. For my initial "test" I used it with a Norelco Carry-corder 150 as the source and a Lenovo Netbook S10 (1st gen) running Audacity. After a bit of research on using the preamp in a Linux environment with Audacity, all went well. I'm very satisfied with the results. The preamp is power off of the USB bus from the S10.
