No one has MF2500? Seriously? I'm alone in this universe?

Re: PV 12 Phase Inverting?

It sounds like you have the right answers and the seller was not BS'ing you. With the actual literature link to PV12 you do see it on page 6 that it says phase inverting and then how to handle it. Good Luck!

Re: What is phase inversion and what do I do about it?

Admin, On the PV12 w/ phono, I heard It is phase correct for the phono stage, phase inverting for the line stage. So am I to understand that I have to switch speaker wire every time I use the phono? Can I just reverse my R/L leads from my Turn Table? What is your thought, take, solution? Is this true?

Re: MF2500 throwing 68 DCvolt out on right channel

I received the amp Friday, it is almost as big as my Premier 350, but you can actually pick it up and move it. I hooked it up to my Premier 16LS2 and started a weekend long listening session. Immediate thoughts are that I'm completely happy with the outcome. It drives my system output w/ less volume...

Re: MF2500 throwing 68 DCvolt out on right channel

Update: Sent the amp to CJ. Spoke with Keith and I had decided that it's worth saving so what I am ending up with is a just about a new amp. It has gotten the "A" upgrade. All new main caps; upgraded bridge rectifier w/ discrete slow diodes; Van den hul output wires, removed un-necessary filters, an...

CAV45 - What Speaker Are You Using

Hello All, I have had large tube power from Premier 140 c1 and large SS power from Premier 350 and more. There are times I am fascinated with the idea of a CAV45 which always seems to bring high praise to low watts. My question at the moment about the CAV45 is, what speaker set up are CAV45 owners u...

Help and Embarrassment or Riches to Rags in seconds

Head low, I tell this tale. Premier 350 amp plugged into a Furman IT Ref power bank. I had my 16LS2 plugged into same bank. Revel Performa3 F208's bi-wired to 350. I had swapped out my Premier 17LS because I had been wondering if it sounded better than my 16LS2 and plus wanted to swap the P16's tube...

Re: Preamp Match

I have, for a short while had a McIntosh C28 running my Premier 140. It was not memorable; not interesting; not a match. You have not commented on your experience with the CJ/Mc combination? I have both a PV12 in excellent shape and Premier 17 that will be going up for sale soon. Good luck. Is this ...

Re: CJ Amp Recommendations -Sold my Premier 140 w/ CJD Teflon; have (3) CJ Pre's PV12 w/ phono, P17LS, P16LS2

With the help of a CJ friend, I've landed on a Premier 350; The Legendary SS. It is everything they say it is and plays with the Premier 16LS2 very well. I'm impressed so far after 3 hours of listening.

MF2500 throwing 68 DCvolt out on right channel

Is there anyone who can help identify if this is possibly a fixable issue; left channel plays fine. I don't mind sending it to Jeff to have it fixed, just wonder what it could be and the amp is not in my hands.

Re: CJ Amp Recommendations -Sold my Premier 140 w/ CJD Teflon; have (3) CJ Pre's PV12 w/ phono, P17LS, P16LS2

Thanks for the response. I like the idea of more power, most speakers I have demand it and sound best when it is applied. What do you like about the Evolution 2000?
