GRAHAM SLEE GRAM AMP 2 COMMUNICATOR PHONO PREAMP

The Gram Amp 2 Communicator phono preamp is a stripped down professional performer specifically designed to give the record playing listener on a low budget full scale performance you won't get from anything else close to its price. Starting out life as the "plain" Gram Amp 2, it earned legendary status within weeks of its introduction back at the turn of the century in the year 2000. Ten years plus onward, it retains its original circuit configuration and thus offers full scale musical performance that sounds exceptionally superb. To be able to continue making this astonishing phono stage preamp at a price you can afford Graham Slee stripped out all the costly cosmetics and what remains is a small, neat and presentable aluminum box with "musical gold" on the inside! The Gram Amp 2 Communicator phono stage preamp is supplied with a universal voltage energy efficient plug-in wall power supply. It can also be powered by the PSU1 power supply which can be ordered separately.

Reviews
"What I didn't expect was for it to sound stage like a four-figure preamp"
- Geoff Husband, TNT Audio (February 2001)

"It concedes little indeed to more expensive designs and kept us entertained for hours. Timing is first-rate, instrumental timbre convincing and detail resolution frankly impressive..."
- Hi-Fi Choice (December 2001)

"Switch to the power rock of Led Zeppelin II and the Gram Amp 2 delivers both crashing cymbals and deep thundering bass with ease" - What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision (June 2002)

New Life for Shure V15V

The Shure V15 has always been an even handed, great tracking cart. Perhaps verging on the boring, for some tastes. The JICO SAS styli retain the lush midrange, even handed presentation of the cart, but with a shot of adrenaline and perhaps a tad more revealing than the original styli. Super product!

Happy

Works a treat on my JVC quadraphonic system and despite the dreaded custom charges, it was still cheaper than modern equivalents and NOS stylus available elsewhere.

Nothing Like the Real Thing

When Shure was no longer a stylus option, and I saw JICO here n there (ahem ahem) I was suspicious, but thankfully checked the sole supplier I saw website directly, LPTunes, and got a Straight Answer ASAP to my question whether their stylus were refurbished or factory NEW, which they proved to be. Not only do my LP's play CLEARER than they did with the SHURE styluses; they actually play LOUDER! Could be Just My Imagination. Who knows?
