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)

Stylus for Pickering XV-15/1200E cartridge
James Nyburg (Cleveland, US)
Pickering XV-15 1200E Stylus used in a 625E body

My stylus purchase came in this afternoon, inspected the stylus under a USB microscope, great stylus tip! I swapped the brush with the original Pickering brush. I had been listening to the OE Pickering 625E stylus just before the 1200E install. The OEM gave a very good full sound , the 1200E is that and so much more. More dynamic and detailed, clean sounding, a very worthwhile upgrade!

Not too shabby

They did everything pretty good. Not much to complain about. The only downsides to my experience were not really in their control and they were the long shipping time, due to me being in Australia and the price of the stylus, which got a little pricey due to to shipping costs and exchange rates.

Value for Money & Honest Sounding

the Jico arrived, and I'm only about six albums in, but it is a vast improvement. For the money - I say it's great sounding, wide soundstage, nothing glassy or brassy sounding. It's on a Thorens TD160, and sure, there are much higher end stylus' that can be used, but this was a direct replacement for my Shure N95-ED cartridge.
