Conrad Johnson PV-8 [Expired]


no longer for sale

Thinning out my tube preamps. Ready to sell my Conrad Johnson PV-8 all tube preamp.  Switched to solid state and balanced preamp from PS Audio, so the PV-8 is up for grabs. Great sounding, lots of tubes, great company. Check my eBay feedback under kkinnon. I may have original box but not sure. Lots of info available on line on this great preamp.
Here's a partial overview: http://www.audioreview.com/product/amplification/preamplifiers/conrad-johnson/pv8.html

 

"The phono stage consists of a gain block, a passive RIAA network, and a second gain block. The line stage consists of a single gain block. These stages use polypropylene capacitors bypassed by a polystyrene capacitor for the output stages. Even the main dc power supplies used polypropylene capacitors – there are no electrolytic capacitors in the audio circuits or their related power supplies. Paralleled triode sections at the phono input yield nearly 3 dB improvements in the signal to noise ratio over a single input tube (as used in the earlier PV5)."
