Preamp Deal of the Century

If anyone is looking for a true "World Class" preamp at a very fair price..heed my advice. I just recieved a Supratek Syrah preamp that was hand built by Mick Maloney in Western Australia, and it is absolutely beautiful! This preamp is the best deal you will ever find. I would put it up against any preamp out there for both looks and sound. Price? $2500 for the Syrah (includes Killer Phono stage). Not into phono? Try the Chardonney line stage for $2100. Don't get me wrong, I am not associated with this company. I am just a very happy owner! This preamp is VERY dynamic, yet liquid. It conveys the sound of music better than any other preamp that I have ever heard! You can check out the Supratek website at www.

I had a Cabernet Dual connected to my Atmasphere MA-1 and it was magical.

Sold the cab dual and got a Grange currently matched to a GFA 545, well it's a GFA with the Hoppes Brain circuit SS amp, and sounds great.


Okay what am I missing here. Deal of the century. Best preamp on planet Earth. Yet we are talking hums hissing noisy remote control bad solder joints, bad paint,and a designer that doesn't know how to use XLR connectors. And you need to find a technician stateside to "finish" the product? With all the preamps available on planet Earth I simply don't get what's going on here. 


@rbertalotto What you are missing, and what’s going on here, has mostly to do with your ability to read.

Best preamp on earth — Where’d you get that? - Hissing, noisy remote control — Where’d you get that? Doesn’t know how to use XLR connectors — Where’d you get that? Bad solder joints— Where'd you get that? Bad paint— Where’d you get that? A loose tube socket — disappointing but hardly the first time an audio product has a missed defect that needed follow up in the field or back in the factory (do you ever read reviews?). Having a tech in the States to help solve problems, vs. having to return the goods to Australia — What’s your beef with that? 

What led to an aspect of a (special order) Grange getting a little mixed up re rhe case is not clear, but in the context of a one man operation dealing with lots of requests, orders and building, including the rigors of point to point wiring, plus dealing with his hon audio own everyday life — e,g., take a look at where Mick lives — it’s hardly surprising that mistakes are sometimes made. 



take a look at where Mick lives — it’s hardly surprising that mistakes are sometimes made. 

Where does he live and why ought where someone live be some reason to indulge in making the mistakes you mention?
