Stereophile class A rated moving magnet phono pre-amp in excellent condition. Amazing sound for the price. I'm using in conjunction with a K&K step up transformer which will be listed separately. Selling due to upgrade-itus.
From the Musicdirect web site:
"The Graham Slee Era Gold V phono preamplifier is unlike any other phono preamp. It throws current thinking to the wind, and concentrates on its singular and only critical mission — that of reproducing music the way music should truly sound. The result is what we call the music lover's phono preamp. Michael Fremer in Stereophile calls it a "miraculous phono preamp" for its ability to change and dramatically lift an entire system's sound quality and make music sound more realistic and life-like!
As with many high performance products, the results the Era Gold provides will only be as good as the source feeding it, but with a good turntable-arm-cartridge combination the results will be heard. At last, much of the grittiness blamed on the vinyl medium is exchanged for real music. Brass, with its complex harmonic structure appears as it should, rather than the usual distortion you get with slower preamps."
