It doesn’t look like much and it doesn’t feel like much, but the Graham Slee Gram Amp 2 ‘Communicator’ is a brilliant little box. It keeps things simple: it’s a moving-magnet phono stage, with one set of inputs and one set of outputs. Performance is fast, organised and dynamic. This device may be low on frills, but it's high on quality.
OK we know, almost £17,000 for a phono stage is a serious amount of money for such a niche hi-fi product. But if you’re serious about vinyl replay, and have the kind of record player, amplification and speakers that will justify this kind of outlay, then this is the phono stage for you.
