Fellows. A funny thing happened on my way to tubes

I set out to replace the PFR with an LS17. LS16 was my dream. That was about 10 yrs ago. I've had a tube phono pre and a tube amp. But providence has kept the PFR in my system. I just went back recently and read the Stereophile review of it in '97(?).
It definitely is a very transparent Preamp. But as both of you say, the volume control is quite touchy. 9 o'clock is my default. 8-8:15 when my wife is here.
I'm thinking about having the PFR evaluated and serviced and having parts replaced if needed. Then too, unless CJ does it with original parts, it may be a bad move.
You paid HOW MUCH for that electrical receptacle?!!! Are YOU nuts?
