Re: Any plans to add Conrad Johnson gear to your system? ...

Thinking of selling my MV-75 tube amp and move to a 5 channel CJ solid state amp. I wouldn't have to match amps to for the 2 subtowers I have. Would probably save me some bucks too as the MV-75 is probably due for a upgrade/repair. Also going to start transitioning to Kimber cables when I can, think...

Thought I would share for future researchers, I was able to contact David Fokos, the original designer of the CJ Synthesis line of speakers, and he told me the following info: Here, to the best of my recollection are the answers to your questions... Frequency Response - I don't really re...

PV-3 info?

How does this preamp compare to the others in the PV line? From what I gather it was sold as a kit and preassembled and was a budget preamp and was low on features, but retained performance of the other preamps.

Re: Where do you buy your tubes? From Conrad Johnson or ....

I recently scored a CJ preamp, PV-3. The seller told me he had it serviced at the CJ factory and they did a full tube replacement. When I got it I found it odd that each tube came from a different part of the world.. I would have thought they would be matched, but each tube was from a different manu...

History of Sonographe?

I have some Sonographe products. I feel they are excellent bang for the buck. Was wondering the relationship to Conrad Johnson. Are they simply a budget line or were they actually a company that CJ bought like Mccormack? If so where were they based? I know Mccormack was California based until CJ bou...

Source for CJ Brochures/Advertisements/Reviews?

Very little listed on Hifi Engine. I'd rather not pay 20 bucks on ebay for a magazine cutout either. Anyone know of any sites? Thanks

Re: Convert PV10-al to PV-10-a
