NAD Simplifies LP Preservation with Ingenious New USB -Equipped Phono Preamp

Compact, Affordable PP-3 Digital Phono Preamp Integrates Turntables with PCs, iPods, Macs and More; Lets Users Easily Copy Vinyl Collections

SHARON, MA, Mar. 25, 2009 - NAD Electronics, the highly regarded manufacturer of high -performance audio/video components, introduces the PP -3 Digital Phono Preamplifier, a sophisticated USB -friendly accessory that allows its owners to easily copy music from vinyl LPs and other audio sources - like FM radio, audiotapes and CD players -directly to a PC, a Mac, an iPod or another MP3 player.


Compact and affordable, the PP -3 Phono Preamp integrates turntables into today's stereo systems, while offering superb performance. Only 5.3 inches long by 1.38 inches high by 2.75 inches deep, its design updates NAD's award -winning PP -2 Phono Preamp by adding a high -quality analog -to -digital converter, a USB interface, and CD -R VinylStudio™ Lite software. The program, supplied on a disc, lets users copy LPs directly to a PC or Mac in Wav or Mp3 file formats. Once in a computer, the digitized music can be burned onto discs, transferred to portable music players or otherwise manipulated.

Today's digital components often overlook the needs of analog music fans, especially owners of LP records, an immense source of superb audio performances. Many A/V receivers, amplifiers, and preamp/processors simply omit phonograph inputs and phono -preamp circuitry. In many other components, the phono section is an afterthought designed for the most basic use.

An additional Line Input on the PP -3 allows music from other analog sources - including FM radio, audiotape, even a CD player - to be converted to the digital USB format. It also adds back the input on an amplifier or receiver used by the PP -3.

The PP -3 Digital Phono Preamplifier is available now from authorized NAD dealers at a suggested price of $199.
