The Jazz Club offers outstanding sound as a standard MM/RIAA phono section plus you get the added EQ flexibility. . . The Adcom Crosscoil XC/LT and the Rega Exact sounded rock solid, full-bodied, coherent and authoritative through the Jazz Club . . . The most fun I had with the Jazz Club was with 78s. I set the Jazz Club for "US Decca" and played "Lullaby of Birdland" on the Simon Yorke. I couldn't believe the presence of Ella's voice, or the lack of noise from the old shellac. Whether you just want a dedicated, high quality MM phono section, or play or digitise 78s, or just want to hear what various LP curves sound like the Jazz Club is well worth considering. Mikey loved it!

Souza symphonic marches; if I can hear the ting of a triangle clearly over a Souza march it must be good! Width of sound stage gets better.
Even though the volume is not even half way up I can hear the bass of Simon & G’s The Boxer in my stomach. Organ music Widor’s ‘Toccata’ . This machine gets to the subtleties of the music. Donna Summers; the most noticeable thing is the separation of individual instruments.

Sound stage has widened dramatically. Count Basie’s band seems bigger (and I don’t mean in number of performers) & rounder. S & G are nearer to me than before as if standing in front of the other performers. No matter whether the volume is high or low one hears everything. This equipment extracts all the information from the disc; in conjunction with basically neutral equipment (which I think mine is) it neither adds nor subtracts from the music.
