i would say the gramer transformer which joseph levy rescued from some
industrial equipment and identified its opportunity as a mc step up trans,
sound really good.

i don't know anything about phonos as i don't even own a turntable but i
got some from mr levy, built it up years later and friends who tried it
raved about it.

can't find any info on the gramers but i guess it's just a standard piece
of iron from the 50s (or 60s?) but managed to trounce (or at least equal)
many a modern sut here today.

where is the magic coming from?
