Many of today's stereo and AV amplifiers and receivers have either eliminated the phonograph input altogether, or included a low cost - and low performance - circuit for attaching your turntable. The PP 2 offers superb performance in a neat and simple package for a very reasonable cost. The NAD PP 2 is a vastly improved successor to the very popular PP 1, arguably the most successful device of its kind. The most obvious visible difference is the inclusion of a high gain Moving Coil Cartridge input allowing proper matching to virtually any high quality turntable/cartridge combination. Other refinements include a grounding terminal post, and gold plated input and output sockets.
The performance of the PP 1 was already to a very high standard in the areas of noise, distortion, and RIAA equalization accuracy, but we have managed to improve these specifications still further by careful circuit layout and improved close tolerance parts. Costly metal film resistors and film type capacitors are used exclusively in the signal path to give both measured improvement and a more refined and engaging listening experience. By increasing the power supply voltage from 15 volts to 24 volts, we have improved overload margins and enhanced musical dynamics.
By staying with the original PP 1 concept, and improving functionality and performance even further, NAD's engineering team has once again managed to give music lovers an even better product at a truly amazing price.
