In nice condition.
The PV2 was released in 1980; one of very few pieces of tube
equipment on the market then. Conrad-Johnson PV2 all tube preamp with
phono stage and two tape loops out. This preamp has great features for
headphone listeners. It has tape loops so you can hook up two headphone
amps and control four sources (three plus phono) while still being able
to connect it to a power amp for speakers. The PV2 uses one 12AX7 tube,
two 5751 tubes and three 12AT7 tubes. All these tubes are readily
available and inexpensive. One of the nice things about this time is
that the resistors and capacitors are fairly modern - unlike those found
in classic 1950s and 1960s gear.
