How old were you when you first bought a CJ product?
early 40s, summer 2003
Technically didnt buy, was given a PV1 instead of a pay check one week. At the time I had no idea what a gift it was. I was just looking for a phono preamp to go with my cheap sony all in one stereo for my dorm room, and had found a love for vinyl. There were a couple record shops in the town I was in, founds some almost STEALS of deals buying records for a dollar or two a piece. This was of course before the internet really took off.... I figured that I got that preamp for about $200, I also got a modded Sony turntable, with pioneer arm from the same fellow. He was the one that introduced me to "hi-fi", worked at his car stereo shop for a semester in college. He had an Audio Research tube amp, one of the real big ones....about ten minutes of listening and I was hooked. Bought some peerless drivers to custom build my first set of decent speakers. Never finished them though...well not really...long sad story. Still have the drivers, the mids and tweets are in a bookshelf system, and the 12's became victims of an Autotek 7300 and a heavy volume knob in my Taurus SHO....however I have bought many of the same model subs since, cant beat the price and they sound great, just dont overpower them. Have four of them in my main home theater setup, series then parallel to get back to 8 ohms on a single channel of a parasound 855. more than enough bass....but of course they are temporary...I have bigger plans for this system....hmm....tangent, what tangent???
