In an age where digital music is appreciated for convenience and quality of sound (depending on the compression format used), NAD has developed their praised PP-2 phono preamplifier to allow for a connection to a computer via a USB output. This now means you can record your vinyl collection onto your PC in either MP3 or WAV formats and then enjoy them on your portable music device or on a CD – a convenient way of enjoying the qualities of warm vinyl on modern-day digital audio equipment. NAD includes a PC software to allow you to transfer your vinyl from your turntable to your PC. However, you can also still use the PP-3 as a phono pre-amplifier, just like the PP-2. This is because the PP-3 shares the same audio outputs as its fellow phono pre-amplifier. With the ability to work with Moving Magnet (MM) and Moving Coil (MC), the NAD PP-3 has great additional features that help to preserve sound integrity. These features include an RIAA MM 12db/octave infrasonic filter to help to eliminate rumble noise and the PP-3 will be at home with standard inputs, or with a soft-clip input of a Analogue to Digital converter (DAC).
