  7. Item: Conrad Johnson CT5 pre-amplifier Price: $3100 Firm - Plus shipping if required Item Condition: Excellent Location: Melbourne Reason for Selling: No longer required Payment: Cash on pick up, PayPal, direct deposit Extra Info: Conrad Johnson is one of the most respected names in hi-end tube audio gear. This amplifier has a beautifully smooth sound. Check these reviews: https://www.stereophile.com/tubepreamps/706cj/index.html https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/review-conrad-johnson-ct5-tube-preamp The CT5 retailed for approx 12k. I purchased this last year on SNA here; It has had less than 100 hrs use in my possession and spent most of the time packed away. The tubes in the unit had about 600 hrs use when I bought it, so expect them to have had about 700 hrs use. Comes with remote control, manual and original box. It was sold to me without power cable so I am passing it on that way. Photos:

  12. Interesting read thanks. Highlights the question of whether cables that are referred to as ‘warm’ are actually just neutral without being clinical or analytical, as opposed to being distinctively warm for example by accentuating the upper bass frequencies.
