Hi,
new to the forum but have read a few posts in the past.

Just purchased a Gram Amp 2 SE Phono stage so thought I'd join.

HI Glenn
I've got Reflex M phono and a Solo headphone amp both with PSU1s the phono amp you have I started with got it second hand but then got the up grade bug
You'll find that they are a good bunch of people on this forum and you'll get the answers to your questions quickly
I not long ago had a problem with connecting my headphone amp to my integrated amp and connected the dealer 3 times and never got a reply (over a week) in one day on the forum got the answer. I wished went on here 1st
Happy listening with your new phono amp

Hi Glenn,

Welcome to the community !

I see that you have Dynaudio Speakers. I recently bought a pair of Xeo 2's for my desktop system - got a great deal since they have been discontinued. Really nice speakers although they seem to take a long time to break-in.

Hi Glenn

My first Graham Slee product was the Gram Amp 2SE, when it looked looked like this.



It served me proud for many years, and now resides with one of my best and oldest friends.
Excellent sounding bit of kit.
You'll get many years of satisfying sound out of it.

Thanks for the welcome.

I was bought up on vinyl and had my first turntable in the early 80's. Like a lot of others I switched to CD's and sold quite a lot of my records. Luckily for me I kept about 50 vinyls that meant something.

2 years ago I bought a Rega Planar 3 for my 50th with the Brio amp and Dynaudio speakers. Ok basis setup. 

Spent most of the last 18 months digging for vinyl. 

Caught the upgrade bug and switched the platter and sub platter for Groovetracer. I have just recently changed the tonearm for a Funk Firm FXR-II and put the Boing isolating feet on. Now the Gram Amp SE.

New cartridge next - Im switched to a Rega Exact last year - think I might go AT VM750 next.

Perhaps should have just gone a bought a Rega P8 or equivalent but Ive enjoyed the journey and am happy with the sound.

Whats the scoop on the PSU1 - is it really worth it ?

With regard to the PSU1, it is worth it once you have done other system upgrades. A lot depends on the quality of your mains power to begin with and the improvement is less noticeable than getting a new cartridge or amp.

I have a general goal of getting the best I can out of everything so that inevitably leads to upgrades in power and cables.
