Just Back From CJ; See Invoice pic for checkup from factory. 

The Classic CJ sound with the right assemblage is just back from CJ getting a check up while my amp was being updated. If you know this pre, then you know it is a keeper; if not then I'll say it possesses that warm, lush CJ sound some yearn for. I pit the Phono stage on this against my Graham Slee eragold and I can not tell a difference. The phono alone on this is worth half the money. Comments from CJ's Jeff Fischel while tending to it was how impressed he was at the condition of this. It is more forward than my Premier 17LS, has more depth to the bass, and is truly amazing. The 17LS is more transparent. I really love both of them but now that it is back from CJ and gone over by Jeff, I need to make room in my set up. Its a pre-you'll fall in love with.  Buyer will be charged actual shipping and pPal's 3% fee. NOTE: The tiny nick shown on the top is the only one, otherwise the pictures show the actual truth of cosmetic condition. The mechanical condition is EXCELLENT. 

The PV-12 superseded the PV11.

Like its predecessor, it featured zero feedback circuits, and passive equalization in the phono stage. For the PV12, critical plate resistors are a special laser-trimmed metal foil type chosen for their extremely low noise and low inductance. The balance control is an eleven-step switch incorporating discrete resistors.
