De Graham Slee Project Reflex C, met psu-1.
De Era Gold Reflex C is vooruitstrevende voorversterker technologie. Het is waarschijnlijk de meest als buizen klinkende solid state voorversterker die er verkrijgbaar is. Hij is echter sneller dan buizen, levert meer detail en een volledig frequentie spectrum.
De Era Gold Reflex is een opgewaardeerde versie van de Era Gold V en ontworpen voor gebruik met Mc elementen.
De reflex C is standaard aanwezig in onze luisterruimte.
Van de site van Graham Slee Projects:
The Reflex C MC preamp is our one box solution for conventional (low) output moving coil cartridges having an output of 0.2 to 1.0 mV.
It’s a MC preamp that provides that missing excitement to moving coil cartridge listening, revealing the secrets hidden in your vinyl – as well as great dynamics, delicacy and just the right amount of warmth.
Imagine a pure tube/valve solution for moving coil phono stage pre-amplification with no step-up transformer? Unfortunately tubes/valves don’t have the open-loop gain and are too noisy to do moving coil pre-amplification without a step-up transformer, but now, with the Reflex C phono stage you can get the sound you’re searching for – yes, that illusive tube/valve linearity, from solid state!
But how? Conventional solid state moving coil phono stage preamps have poor open-loop bandwidth which means their open-loop response is only a few tens of hertz. Negative feedback straightens out their response but in doing so it introduces phase modulation from bass frequencies upwards.
The Reflex C has more than ten times the open-loop bandwidth of a solid state moving coil phono preamp which means there’s less than one tenth the phase modulation
There are many more refinements in the Reflex C phono stage, including excellent radio frequency rejection as well as the best branded components available that gel to make the most precise sound stage delivering an unbeatable moving coil musical experience.
Diverse stukken uit reviews:
“…the Reflex C is extraordinarily quiet… absolutely invisible… The tonal harvest was rich and bountiful, with a deep sonorous bass linearly joined by a smooth and creamy midrange, and progressing to clean and open treble that lacked nothing in sparkle, but never became bright or insistent… It showed excellent attack and pace, and was never intimidated by the often lavish production… Smooth, open, detailed and unobtrusive, this is quite a superb phono stage that should hold its own against more expensive designs.[Deon Schoeman, Audio Video (South Africa), August 2011]
“a good upgrade from the best of the currently available sub-$1,000 preamps like the Dynavector DV-75. It’s good enough to pip the WhestTWO and even go head to head with the much more expensive Plinius Koru without embarrassment. A superb product, worthy of audition if you are in the market for a high end phono stage.”[Michael Wong, AudioEnz (New Zealand), September 2010]
