As of September 2012 "V3" sports our own slimline extruded enclosure with our usual classic clean line styling.

A phono preamp stage with RIAA equalisation for all stereo vinyl records. This phono preamplifier is suitable for use with all high quality moving magnet and high output moving coil phono cartridges.

"I can't think of any other phono stage anywhere near its price that can match the 2 SE's clear, taut, and dynamic bass response, nor approach its high frequency clarity and resolution."

[Stereo Times, May 2007]

 


The Gram Amp 2 Special Edition phono stage preamp was first launched in 2001 with a number of improvements over its legendary stable mate, the Gram Amp 2 (now called the Communicator).

The Special Edition of the Gram Amp 2 phono stage preamp features 50 percent more gain to deliver a higher output favoured by owners of passive preamps when using medium to high output (4.5mV or above) moving magnet phono cartridges. However, it can be used with all moving magnet, moving iron and high output moving coil cartridges.

We will let the reviewers tell you how good it is...

"The Gram Amp 2 SE offers exceptionally good value with its clean, detailed, dynamic and completely grain-free presentation"

[Six Moons, April 2005]

 

"...the music the Gram Amp 2 SE produced was very well tonally balanced. It was easy to listen to but also imparted excitement without edginess. Amazingly, when partnered with quite expensive front-ends and 'speakers, the Gram SE was not left wanting, it just played highly enjoyable music."

[TNT Audio, May 2002]

 

"This product is an easy recommend. It works very well, and it does so beyond what you might expect at the price"

[EnjoyTheMusic.com, April 2002]

 

"...all the earmarks of a giant killer...the more you listen to this thing on its own, the more you'll discover that you can play it for hours without fatigue...the presentation had a rare top to bottom cohesiveness, with a tonal balance unusually rich, lush, and, well, beautiful...It's love at first sound between the Gram Amp and vocalists, while violins are marvelously silken..."

[Absolute Sound (print magazine), Feb/March 2002]

 

"...they'll be amazed by its sound...the Gram delivered genuine solidity in the mid-band and mid-bass. It was quiet, and free from the thinness, edge, and grain you usually get at this price..."

[Stereophile (print magazine), June 2002]
