The Era Gold V MM phono preamp is a favourite of reviewer Michael Fremer (Stereophile magazine, USA). The only phono preamp in his "Over and Under" $100 Stocking Stuffers From Analogplanet.com! feature - in it he says... "This Graham Slee is a superb and special sounding MM phono preamp. Later you could add a step-up transformer if you’re going to a moving coil cartridge. For now why not get more from your MM, high-output moving coil or moving iron cartridge?" We couldn't have put it better, and for the step-up transformer, what better than our Elevator EXP? Era Gold V rear panel Era Gold V Designed for moving magnet, moving iron and high output moving coil cartridges, the Era Gold V MM phono
stage was our very first "ultra-linear" design.
