Re: My CJ-based system

Fits in nicely with the decor not too imposing. Very liberal use of stillpoints they must work for you to pay so much attention to your individual components. Am I right in thinking you have a Premier 350SA now...? Jonathan. Thanks Jonathan. Yes. Premier 350SA is my current system power amp and has...

Re: CJ Premier 350 and 350SA

Too much gain is not an issue with my GAT2/350SA. I can adjust the output of my dCS Vivaldi DAC in four increments (.2, .6, 2 & 6 Volts) so using it on the .6 Volt setting means that for normal listening levels with my 86db efficient TAD speakers, I am around 50, or halfway on the preamp volume sett...

Wow,... that entire setup looks amazing. The finish on the TAD's look beautiful. I like the "clean" look of the rack. Very nice, congrats.
Thank you for your kind words!

Re: My CJ-based system

The 65" LG OLED screen and Meridian Audio A/V system is "shoe-horned" into the corner at the other end of the room. Not ideal, but the hifi system takes precedence!

My CJ-based system

I am in my 60's and first became hooked on hi fi in the mid-1970's when the best system I could afford to put together was a Linn Sondek LP12/Ittok/Asak, Meridian 101 preamp with active electronic cross-overs, a six-pack of Meridian 105S power amplifiers configured for bass, mid and treble, driving ...

Re: CJ Premier 350 and 350SA

My GAT 2 sits on a grid level of one of the two Stillpoints ESS racks I have, supported by a quartet of Stillpoints Ultra SS. Power cord is a Vertex AQ Hi-Rez Roraima.

Re: CJ Premier 350 and 350SA

Hi Xcop5089, I'm sure that's correct, interestingly I've just purchased the CJ 350sa I'm going from the CJ 250 and will be using an ET5 pre, I've just sold my ET3 wth phono and replaced that with the Tea2SE. What are your thoughts re: the Premier 350sa with the Gat....? I will be using Audio Physic...

Re: CJ Premier 350 and 350SA

I think Jasmine may be confusing the 350SA nomenclature with 350"SE" denoting "Special Edition" which is an urban myth! I have owned my CJ Premier 350SA since 2004 (purchased new from the UK official importer/distributor, Audiofreaks. It is still my main system power amp and having added a new CJ GA...

Re: Any one thinking about a GAT Series 2 preamp?

Beautiful setup! Looks incredible. Can you give us a list of the other equipment? Thank you for your kind words. It's been a labour of love over many years! The CJ Premier 350SA power amp is the oldest component in my hi fi system, having purchased it new in 2004 from the official UK importer. I al...

Re: Any one thinking about a GAT Series 2 preamp?

Finally, I got my GAT S2 set up and running (replacing an C-J ET5). Amazing tonality out of the box. Still missing the soundstage I was able to obtain though, but it must surely be a matter of breaking in time. Does anybody have any experience in the breaking in period for the GAT or GAT S2? After ...
