Near-Universal Acclaim and Accolades Galore: Graham Slee Gram Amp 2 SE MM Phono Preamplifier Is A Stereophile Recommended Component and an Absolute Sound Editors' Choice
The little preamp that has won the admiration of music lovers worldwide: Housed in a new silver case and designed by Graham Slee, the Gram Amp 2 SE MM phono preamplifier is an analog provocateur that generates exceptional micro detail and weight and a soundstage of great depth and breadth.
"...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…"
– Michael Fremer, Stereophile
The Special Edition of the Gram Amp 2 phono stage preamp features 50 percent more gain to deliver a higher output favored by owners of passive preamps when using medium to high-output (4.5mV or above) moving magnet phono cartridges. It also comes supplied with a universal-voltage energy-efficient mains plug mounted power supply or can be powered by Graham Slee's PSU1 power supply which can be ordered separately.
"...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..."
– Paul Seydor, The Absolute Sound
"The Gram Amp 2 SE offers exceptionally good value with its clean, detailed, dynamic and completely grain-free presentation."
– Six Moons
"...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."
