The Gram Amp 3 Fanfare is for low output moving coil cartridges, and is best used into a preamp, integrated amp or receiver’s line/aux input. It is supplied with a basic (“green energy”) power supply which self adjusts to your voltage, and with power-pins fitted to suit your power outlet — and you can upgrade by swapping over to PSU1 power when you’re ready.
Redesigned in 2015, the Gram Amp 3 Fanfare has even better dynamics and speed which means it captures much more of the excitement and subtleties in your music. It will be like discovering your record collection all over again. Its redesign also makes it a moving coil phono preamp for the cell-phone age.
The Cell-Phone Age
You often find you need your cell-phone by your side even when relaxing to music. There are even Apps right now to check your turntable’s RPM where you place your cell-phone right there on the platter. The powerful energy cell-phones emit and the sheer gain low-output moving coil needs present a big problem for MC phono preamp technology. For great music you need a phono preamp with excellent transparency, but that can leave it open to interference – lots of it!
The redesigned Gram Amp 3 Fanfare phono preamp maintains its excellent transparency, but is much more immune to cell-phone interference.
