“The Grail” is a really dulcet phonograph pre-amplifier, specifically designed bearing ultimate performance and reliability in mind.

  • a specific designed Phonograph preamplifier section, unique in the world
  • Phonograph RIAA – equalization with coils only, no sound impairing capacitors in filters
  • special printed circuit board material with gold conducting paths
  • the printed circuit board has a special seating to evade microphonics
  • special equipment foot made of selected wood avoids mechanical energy storage
  • low noise moving coil input stage, no annoying noise even with low-output cartridges
  • automatic adapting input stage for moving coil cartridges, no matching resistors needed
  • possibility to compensate phonograph cartridge sensivity (level adjustment)
  • cut out of coupling capacitors in the signal path as far as possible
  • strictly separated amplifier sections and circuit layout deliver a very natural soundstage
  • inputs: two phonograph inputs, one for MC cartridges, one for MM or MC high-output
  • a shielded transformer is placed in an external housing to avoid hum and EMI noise
  • power supply with Gyrators for each amplifier stage deliver very high noise cancellation
  • the external transformer is available for different mains voltages

Designed to provide high-end audio, “The Grail” will deliver you outstanding sound quality with nearly every available modern phonograph cartridge.
