Graham Slee Gram Amp 2 SE Phono Stage

An amazing little RIAA preamp for moving magnet, high output moving coil and moving iron phono cartridges. It's quite a gem as you'll find!

The Gram Amp 2 Special Edition RIAA preamp was first launched in 2001 with a number of improvements over the legendary budget Gram Amp 2 "Communicator". The Special Edition features 50 percent more gain to deliver a higher output which is a closer match to digital sources.

Originally built as an entry-level RIAA preamp for the USA market, It's earned itself several recommendations with the American Hi-Fi press.

As of September 2012 "V3" sports our own slimline extruded enclosure with our usual classic clean line styling.



'...I wouldn't spend the difference between the Gram and the Dino if I were going to use it solely for MM amplification... I'd be paying for stages I wouldn't be using, and I wouldn't enjoy the sound over extended listening even with the Dino+ power supply option...' (Stereophile magazine)

'...all the earmarks of a giant killer...the more you listen to this thing on its own, the more you'll discover that you can play it for hours without fatigue...the presentation had a rare top to bottom cohesiveness, with a tonal balance unusually rich, lush, and, well, beautiful' (Absolute Sound magazine)

Great value, high quality phono stage
20 September 2023  | 

What’s there left to say? Nothing new… but to confirm that this Gram Amp 2 SE remains a great little product which enhances starter and intermediary turntables and displays bags of musical qualities. I’ve got this one playing jazz on a secondary setup in the living room and it really brings out rhythm, bass, etc., For me, at this price, it’s a great choice with no drawbacks at all.

This is the first time that I have used a separate phono pre-amp instead of the built-in one included in my Arcam amplifier. Just amazed at the difference that this makes. Can't compare it with other brands, as I have no experience of them, but the Gram Amp2 definitely gets my seal of approval.

A great phono stage
02 August 2014  | 

Great detail with a lot of delicacy. Clean detailed and articulated bass but not very deep Crisp and textured high, without harshness.Wonderful and clean midrange. Great timing. Very wide soundstage in all dimensions. A great pleasure for the ears. I'm very happy.
