I had on hand an older Graham Slee phono preamp, the Era Gold Mk.V - when I'd first listened to it, in January 2004, its highly accomplished sound took me by surprise. After re-familiarizing myself with the Era Gold's sound, I listened to the Reflex M and was surprised all over again...It was fast, clean, three-dimensionally solid, way more transparent...and made for mighty inviting listening - even through the Prince of Price No Limit's megabuck system

My Reflex M has changed from good when new to outstanding and spectacular in every way after 3 weeks... Another thought, do not upgrade your cartridge without hearing what a Reflex M can do, it will make your existing cartridge sound as good as it possibly can.

I can say that my Reflex M is probably the best hifi purchase I've made

Just out of interest I did try out a couple of valve phono stages a few years ago, one of which was the Icon PS3 & the Reflex M was preferred

And today My Reflex M finely arrived. Whooo that is good 5 hours we listen to it. Sorry for my bad spelling.

Best of Both Worlds
Reflex M + Elevator EXP for MM and MC
The Reflex M phono stage preamp focuses on the perspective feel of the sound stage - designed to place sounds more accurately front to back as well as laterally between and beyond the speakers - the "musical distance" behind your speakers should indicate a greater perspective than their away-from-wall positioning would suggest.
The Reflex M uses our "fast-active" technology combined with a true symmetrical slew-rate, which unveils more of your music and at the same time, relegates vinyl nasties like clicks and pops, further into the background.
It is strong on tonal correctness and low on tonal distortion, rendering each instrument and voice in its proper register, underpinned with a detailed tuneful bass.
As with all our products, the Reflex M phono stage preamp should be left powered-up for its circuits to fully stabilize, and give the intended performance.
Although we also produce a Reflex for low output moving coil cartridges, you can couple a Reflex M with our Elevator EXP - an electronic step-up "transformer" for moving coils - to not only keep your cartridge options open, but to take your moving coil listening experience to new heights.
