Graham Slee Jazz Club Phono Pre-amp


Digital EQ from a flat gain stage simply won't cut the mustard. The Jazz Club does it properly in the Analogue domain and the results are outstanding. The Jazz Club is the choice of re-mastering experts when only the best will do. The same circuit as the Era Gold V but with 15 disc equalization settings to present the correct tonal responses of 78s, early LPs, EPs and Singles, plus all modern day releases. The three, 3-position, up-down front panel switches control a complex array of high speed (600V/µS) pulse capacitors to select the right reproduction characteristic. The entire equalisation/amplification transform is accomplished within a single stage. Just like the Era Gold V technology on which the Jazz Club is based, the extremely stable electronics preserve faithfully every bit of detail. The results it gives have led many to "rip-up" earlier completed projects and start-over - Preserving history for future generations is a responsible task. For use with regular (low output) Moving Coil cartridges the Jazz Club can be teamed up with the Elevator EXP. The Elevator EXP pre-pre-amplifies the signal by 22.5dB to Moving Magnet level, adding no colouration of its own. The information retrieval has to be witnessed to be believed. Recordings that sounded old are suddenly transformed and sound like they were recorded only yesterday. The differences between post-equalised recordings and those from the Jazz Club are easily heard. Even the best experts in musical re-mastering admit they can only make a stab at the right balance - using the Jazz Club it becomes immediately apparent how the music was actually laid down.X
