The new Croft Micro 25 Basic pre-amplifier

Glenn's response to the credit crunch and an answer to some minor gripes with the modern Croft range, some were asking for even cheaper products and now Glenn has delivered.

I have been listening to it in my system for a week now, purely because Glenn wanted one burned in. Whilst it has some sonic crudeness, there is something to be said the very simple circuit that makes up this pre-amplifier. Somehow the music has areas of openess and honesty that my own heavily modified and more complex Epoch does not reveal in quite the same manner. It is true that I will be very happy to return to the truly hi-fi nature of my Epoch, nevertheless I will be missing certain aspects of the Basic. A true bargain. Available at your local dealer now.
