Item: Lejonklou Giao Moving Magnet Phono Stage & Hagerman Piccolo 2 Head Amp (selling as a combo).
Location: Sydney, NSW
Item Condition: Near Mint
Reason for selling: Not using! Bought out of curiosity.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash & Paypal
This phono combination made headlines in 2017 when Michael Fremer of Analog Planet invited readers to conduct a blind listening test using a number of combination of Moving Magnet Phono Stages and Head Amps. The combo beat all other combinations hands down. I personally picked this combination as the clear winner and was not surprised that a majority of readers liked it too. Here is the article where you can read more about it: https://www.analogplanet.com/content/perhaps-you-should-buy-mm-only-phono-preamp-if-you-are-using-mm-cartridge It cost me about $1,300 to import both items. I'm selling as a combo because I think it would be a shame to separate the 'audio voodoo' that this phono solution offers. Please feel free to ask any questions.

Extra Info: This fine amplifier was chosen for his personal use as his reference amplifier by renowned professional audio designer and acoustician Graham Thirkell. Graham’s many tape recorder designs are unmatched, and his large range of studio equipment still highly sought. Read Graham’s profile at this Audio Engineering Society link: http://www.aesmelbourne.org.au/graham-thirkell/
Graham and Kostas Metaxas had many conversations on the differences and similarities between high end and professional design and requirements, and they collaborated on occasion. The phono input on this amp is one result of that collaboration.
It is difficult for me to say goodbye to this amp. Not only because it has such a beautiful sound, but also as it holds so many memories of listening together with Graham to new music and equipment.
This is a once only opportunity to purchase and enjoy a piece of proud history of the design initiatives of Australian high quality audio designers.
