"Glenn has shown how minimalist, no-frills designs can, for those able to forego luxury, deliver great sound with panache. Yes, it's rudimentary, but for the money, it's hard to find a more musical way than the Series 7 to power up a system intended to deliver music." - Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, September 2010

England's Croft Acoustics has been making some of the very finest tube electronics for over twenty years. Croft pre-amps and amplifiers are minimalist, no compromise designs, carefully handmade, with absolutely the highest regard for maintaining signal purity.

Featuring point to point wiring and selected matched components,  the Micro 25 preamplifier includes a high quality valve MM phono stage.

In addition to producing exceptional sound quality, Croft's minimalist designs cost far less to produce than many of today's exotic brands. Therefore Croft amplifiers deliver a sonic performance far in excess of what one would expect given their modest prices. This minimalist, quality first philosophy is utilized in all Croft products.

All the glowing reviews are correct. A bare bones preamp with a great MM phono stage, the Croft Micro 25 Basic is a fantastic "bit of kit" as they say in the UK. Very quiet, deep depth and texture to the sound of your LPs with this Croft classic.

Simply great

I bought this Preamp (along with the matching Power amp) after a 16 month period featuring many, many, auditions with similarly priced hi-fi gear. Now that the combo is broken in, I know I made the right choice for my system.

Outperforms all the other products that I tried, regardless of price. So far the unit has been rock solid. I'm impressed by the build quality and cleanliness of both units.

Perhaps the best surprise is the quality of the built in phono stage. As the owner of a phenomena II, I was sure that I would use my current stage through the Aux input, but the built in phono was much nicer.
