Customer feedback:
"...the Vida prima is a superb phono preamp that punches way above its weight! I am currently using it with a LOMC at .28mv to grand affect. It is very flexible and works equally well with moving coils and moving magnets alike. Refined, quiet and very musical. This phono stage is all that most audiophiles will ever need. Highly recommended!"

"...this little beauty sounds phenomenal!! Gorgeous to look at as well. Alfred had this uncanny knack for finding the sweetest and most unheard of audiophile products out there. Or at least I had never heard of Aurorasound until I spied them on the High-End Electronics website. Highly recommended phonostage folks. Just the right amount of control on the rear of the unit and a great MUTE button on the front. Gorgeous wooden hardcase as well..."


Jerry Seigel of concluded (September 2019):
"...the VIDA Prima sets a very high bar for sonic performance and is an exceptional value at $1,200. This is a very truthful and enjoyable phono preamplifier. The VIDA Prima is an example of the best that phono preamps offer, adjusted perfectly for price. Especially if your moving coil cartridge performs well with a 47k Ohm load, the VIDA Prima could possibly let you delete the word 'upgrade' from your thoughts..."

Nick Tate of HiFi-News writes (May 2019):
"...most 'affordable' phono stages are decent enough sounding, even if they don't really dig deep into what's at the bottom of the record groove. The VIDA Prima does better, however, with a particularly smooth tone and an open and detailed nature that's a serious step up from a budget design. Typically, it delivers wide soundstages that are well proportioned front-to-back and, alongside its jaunty rhythmic gait, allows the music to come alive..."

Darren Henley of THENEWOLD.CO wrote (January 2019):
"...overall, this is a mid-centric sound. What I mean is that voices and instruments are in focus, and while the nuance and harmonic complexities come through, they aren't enhanced by forward leaning treble. I prefer more tonal weight, color, mass and speed to a leaner sound. Again, this system balances that with excellent resolution and speed. The illusion of three dimensional space is captivating.  I tend to do my private listening with the Audioquest Nighthawks, Nightowl, or the Audeze LCD-XC 'phones. I've had some spooky real moments listening to vinyl with this system. I know this phono preamp is Aurorasound's entry level unit, but there's nothing 'budget' about the sound..."
