GRAHAM SLEE SOLO HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER

The Graham Slee Solo headphone amplifier is the choice of several studios and editing suites for one very important reason - the Solo headphone amplifier makes it easy to hear the editing cues. These are musical cues that are part of the performance, but they happen so quickly that lesser headphone amplifiers are not able to resolve quickly enough and thus mask. This makes the editing suite's job very difficult indeed. The wide-bandwidth performance of the Solo headphone amplifier reproduces music with the highest resolution. Coupled with its excellent dynamics, the Solo headphone amplifier is the obvious choice for the professional user or for the pristine listener who wants to hear music as it was originally recorded.

Through the years the Graham Slee Solo headphone amp has received awards and accolades for its sound quality excellence.

Pickering PDE Stylus

This stylus worked perfectly with the Pickering cartridge mounted on a Lafayette T-2000 turntable. Thank you for your service on this difficult to find part.

PERFECTION for Shure V15V-P!!!

After 25 years, I decided to resurrect my old Technics SL-D30 turntable from the attic. It has a Shure V15V-P (P-mount) that I bought in 1984. It still sounds good, but it just seems as if something is missing. Granted, my ears are not what they used to be, but I felt it was time to replace the 40-year-old stylus anyway. Since Shure is no longer made, I was leery if any other brand would work or sound good in the old cartridge. Thankfully, I came across JICO. After contemplating if I should get the boron cantilever (SAS/B) or the Sapphire (SAS/S), I decided to spend the extra money for the sapphire. It arrived in 3 days and fit perfectly into the Shure cartridge. When I played the first song, I gasped! Wow, just WOW!!!!! I am lost for words to describe the sound. The treble, mids, and bass are equal and exceptional. The realism, clarity, and sound stage are utter perfection! I am hearing so many sounds that I never heard before. The unbelievable quality actually brought me to tears on certain nostalgic songs. This stylus is far better than the original one that was supplied with the V15V-P. I am so glad I decided to keep my old Shure cartridge. THANK YOU, JICO for making an outstanding upgrade!!
