Re: Premier Fourteen Preamp. Wanted

I know this is old, but I have a Premier 14 that I would like to sell. It's been modded by Bill Thallmann at Music Technologies.
I'll PM you.

Thanks,
Don

Re: Preamplifier Premier 16Ls2 schematics wanted

Hey JeffreyBehr, Would the upgrades you specified for the 16LS2 be applicable for a 16LS? What's the difference between the 2 models? Do you have any other info about the upgrades you specified? On a different topic, I have a Premier 14 that Music Technologies modded. They added small value TFT V-Ca...

Premier 11A mods

Hi all, I bought a new to me Premier 11A recently, and I'm not as enamored as I'd hoped I'd be. This came after auditioning a MF-2550 which I loved, but couldn't afford to keep. The bass on the 11a is kinda boomy, and I'm not hearing the liquid mid range I was hoping for. On the 2550, the bass was t...

Re: Any thoughts if this will get me into trouble (KT-150 related)?

Him all, I know this thread is a few months old, and my reply is a bit off topic but here goes. I just purchased a Premier 11, and am looking to do a few upgrades. I purchased a quad of KT-120's to liven the amp up a bit, and while they did tighten up the bass, the highs seems to be kind of dry and ...

Tube rolling and recommendation in a Premier 14

Hi, I've been trying some tube rolling with my Premier 14 preamp, and I'm not hearing a difference. Are there listeners here who have had a similar or different experience? I've tried Sylvania's, Mullard's and Hitachi's. I read somewhere that the rear pair of tubes have more of an impact on the soun...

Re: First bad experience with CJ

I had a similar experience as the OP. Ed was always very helpful, and enjoyed the conversation on the phone. Not so much with Jeff. I bought a demo'd MF-2550 off of Amazon (via Spearit). I knew it would not be mint when I got it, but it was poorly boxed from Amazon (not original) and was falling out...

Re: Power Switch Out On Conrad Johnson MF2200

I realize this is an old thread, but when I wanted to control my MF2200 from I switched outlet, I called CJ and they said it was ok.

Re: Looking for a new tube amp

Hi Peter and all, I'm happy to report that I picked up a Premier 11a this past week, and really enjoying it. I got it for $1750 shipped, and it's got a relatively new set of Svetlana 6550's. I also found a set of TungSol KT120's for $110 shipped and I'm looking forward to some tube rolling. Peter I ...

Re: Looking for a new tube amp

Hi Peter, Thanks for your response. You definitely got my head spinning with all of the information. I would really like to hear the differences in output tubes, as well as different designs. Heck, I'd like to get my living room remodel finished so I get back to listening to music. It wasn't me who ...

Looking for a new tube amp

I'm new to the forum, and want to ask for a recommendation for a new tube amp. I stumbled across this site when I was searching for a Premier 11a for sale. I'm in the market for a new amp, as I'm still chasing that "sound". It all started out about 10 years ago with a pair of Totem Forest speakers, ...
