For sale, both an MET1 and MET150

Billy, you lucky guy, I'm selling mine--both the MET1 and the MET150. With my increasing age and diminished hearing, I'm turning more into a videot than an audiofool; my system now has a--GASP--A/V preamp/processor (a Marantz AV7704--this year's new model) and both a humble Outlaw 7100 7-channel po...

Re: DNA-750s again.

Well...NOT going to happen. After two offers rejected and my further thinking about the cost--around $2K--of rebuilding the two amps, I withdrew my offer. Today retrieved a Butler TDB 5150 5-channel amp... http://www.butleraudio.com/tdb5150.php ...and will try that for a while. If that sounds great...

Re: What have you been watching?

I've started to look at doing an upgrade to my home theater system in the near future. ... Although the Epson 5400UB is not "full 4K" I hear that it's pixel shifting technology is very good. It's excellent IMO. I'm using the 1080p Epson 4700UB but I'm itching to go full 4K. When I do this I also pl...

DNA-750s again.

Remember that pair of '750s I bought in 2012, substantially modified, and used to drive a pair of Vandersteen 5As? See http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=104073.0 It's highly probable they'll soon be back, to drive a pair of Revel Salon2s next year. (My retirement cash goes only so far. :oo...

Repurchased my ET250S--yaaaaaaaaa!

Am fantisizing about buying a pair of Revel Ultima2 Salon2s, which are rather insensitive* at around 86dB/2.83V/1M and somewhat low impedance, dipping to c. 3 Ohms IIRC. I asked my buddy if he'd sell the '250 back to me and he said yes--so it's staying at my house. I've used this amp with the very ...

Re: CJ Premier 350 and 350SA

Lew johnson told me personally, years ago, that 'SA' means 'Stereo Amp'. So someone may think there is such a thing as, for instance, an ET250 (Enhanced Triode, 250 WPC), but there isn't--it's an 'ET250SA'.

And FWIW, this ET250SA sounds EXCELLENT!

Re: Repair suggestions for PV12 please

On too-much preamp gain GENERALLY...where one runs his preamp-volume control depends on many things: 1. How much gain the preamp has; 2. The taper of the gain control; 3. How loud you want the music to be; 4. How much Voltage gain your poweramp(s) has, and 5. How sensitive your speakers are. One ca...

Re: PV5 - Parts Connexion upgrade

hi-fi and all, just to clearly state my opinions and maybe help others make some decisions, here are some thoughts: 1. C-j's 'styrene-and-foil caps are indeed 5-star-quality caps, but I think the current MultiCap RTXs (also 'styrene-film-and-foil) are a little cleaner sounding. 2. In the PV5 (and mo...

Re: PV5 - Parts Connexion upgrade

The rectangular blue capacitors are definitely original to the PV5. If memory serves me, these are metalized polypropylene.... cjlew, are you really Lew Johnson? :-) WELCOME. I agree with Lew about the blue caps; they are indeed original (I've had my eyes in at least a half-dozen of these and was a...

Re: Changing of the guards

Thanks, the replacement and cost of the tubes are the reasons why I use the Premier 11a in the summertime. .... The many different perspectives on tubed amps interest me. I have a tubes-only c-j preamp, a 6-channel MET1, and I LOVE its sounds and features. But I REALLY LOVE the sounds of all-triode...
