Product Description

This is an expertly matched package consisting of the Goldring 1042 MM phono cartridge and Graham Slee Gram Amp 2 Communicator phono stage.

Goldring 1042

Goldring 1042 is close to obtaining legendary status as one of the best sounding moving magnet cartridges at its price rivalling the sound quality of many more expensive MC cartridges.

Graham Slee Gram Amp 2

Graham Slee 2 Communicator sets a benchmark for budget phono stage performance, designed for MM or high output 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 rivals in its range.
