I agree with Ian. When I’ve powered down my gear for a few days, it only takes a couple of days to come back on song.

To concur, my advice to borrowers is generally to power up and give the loan gear a day or two to settle down before serious comparisons but start enjoying it straight away.

 When I send you a PM on the forum about addresses and legal stuff,
Please read through the PM to find all the details.
I have tried to address all the requirements as this is a very vulnerable program.
All members of the forum are the owners of the loaner program stock.
We are all responsible for it’s safety and care, and to share with other forum members.
This is how Graham Slee himself set up the program.


 You will find a definite sound improvement using any of Graham Slee's designs for a particular function.
Graham Slee designs all of his audio circuits with sound quality and longevity as his primary objectives… built to last. 
 The range of MM phono stages he makes is as follows, lowest quality and least cost first to best quality and most costly:
Gram Amp 2 - Communicator
Gram Amp 2 - Special Edition
Jazz Club
Era Gold V
Reflex M
Revelation M, a Reflex M with adjustable LP EQ
Accession M, with variable output level control and 
adjustable LP EQ
Accession MC, with variable output level control and adjustable LP EQ

 Michael Fremer did a great review on the Era Gold V.
He also did a review of Graham Slee's Reflex M.
Graham designed the Reflex to have faster "reflexes" to improve detail and it replaced the Era Gold V as his flagship model at that time.
The Reflex M is built on the same pcb as the Era Gold V.

 When I joined this forum, I was looking for a phono stage to improve my system. Separate phono stages are great for doing just that. In 2010 to 2011, Graham Slee was just coming out with his Reflex M when I had borrowed the Gram Amp 2, Special Edition. I was blown away with how that sounded. Then I tried the Reflex M and WOW happened. I did hear those "faster reflexes" as promised.

 When the opportunity arose for a new US Loaner Program coordinator I jumped on it. I now can borrow all of his units and find I still love the Reflex M. (I haven't had a chance to truly audition the Accession M since other forum members keep it out so much there is a waiting list 2 to 4 deep constantly.) The Reflex M is also very popular. It is the only unit that there are 2 of in the US Loaner stock.

Here to help,
Bruce
 I am hoping to see a break in loaner requests for the Accession M soon.
I will post my findings when I loan it myself
 (A benefit of being a Loaner Coordinator).

It's a well deserved benefit given all the people you have helped. Happy listening Bruce.

 Hi Gary, the Lautus cable is excellent at removing and shielding any radio frequency interference (in addition to other noise) from audio signals being connected with it.

 Send me a Private Message via the drop-down next to my username (BAK) to the left of this post.
