Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

Best preamp I ever had . . .

Was the CJ Premier 17LS (version 1). I miss it very much, but it was finicky. A few times it blew the rail fuses in my CJ MF2250 power amp when I switched sources with the remote, and once when I hit the HT button. CJ tried their darndest to isolate the problem but couldn't. Sob, wimper, sniff. It sounded so good! But had to let it go.

In the next week or two I'm going to home audition the Rogue Audio Rp-5. At least at the dealer, it brought back memories of the 17LS. And it's less expensive and has an MM/MC phono stage and headphone amp. We'll see. Keeping my fingers crossed. I have their Cronus Magnum II integrated in another system and love it.
"If you are the owner of a new stereophonic system, this record will play with even more brilliant true-to-life fidelity. In short, you can purchase this record with no fear of its becoming obsolete in the future."
