Over one year with my Classic One Twenty SE

Hola mis amigos,

All of you do know about how happy I am with my Conrad Johnson toys. I am into a totally mew world f with this quality sound. My speakers are very difficult to make them to sing . And having the transparency, the dynamic contrast of the musical instruments, the wide and depth of the stage, the truly right size of the musical instruments, the vocals without soreness, the right timbre, the air between them, and what I love most: The listening pleasure for all these and so many great musician(s) that are granted, thanks to C-J.

I have to thanks to my wife, who had the knowledge to let me be into my system. and to listen all these hours. What really amuse me, is that I am still discovering a lot of details that were not showed with this clarity and the pleasure that it gives. Now, every musical note counts. I am not a young person. I assure you that my soul dances along with the music.

Being a musician helps to understand better the communication that the musicians have. This is great, because I can sense the fun that they are having playing together.

While I listen to Brazil music, Bossa Nova, I can understand the complexity of the musical chords. Their harmony chords are very complicated, giving the sound a special dissonance with a rhythm that I do like, being a smooth suave kind of music. I do love to play Bossa with my guitar too.

I do know that some of you have the same Preamp ET-7 along with this amp and also that some of you still owns different power amps, where you can swap them easy. Please, report your findings. Share them with us please.

I aslo do know that the ET-7 and the Classic One Twenty SE are not perfect. But having a vast possibilities and brands on the market place, I have to recommend and comment my findings.

Happy listening!
