The Graham Slee 2 Communicator sets a benchmark for budget phono stage performance, designed for moving magnet (MM) or high output moving coil (MC) cartridges (of 2mV to 8mV nominal output). This phono stage is an excellent upgrade over the standard 'Phono' or 'Disc' turntable input on most amplifiers, which is often just a cheap PCB and offers a more significant upgrade than most sub £100 phono stages.
The result of many years of development, this is the MkIII Communicator, which features several upgrades over original models. These improvements have reduced noise and distortion to a level much lower than most phono stages at this level, allowing you to equally enjoy quieter and louder musical moments. As a result, this model fully 'Communicates' every aspect of the music.
"The box may be basic but the sound is anything but – highly recommended. 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. It’s fast, organised and dynamic, too – although you will get a bit more power and weight from (more expensive) rivals. Low on frills, high on quality, Graham Slee's aptly-named Communicator comes highly recommended." (What Hi-Fi Magazine Awards October 2013)
