Item Description

Final Price reduction....Nice Conrad Johnson model PF-1 FET Preamp with Phono in great working order. The PF-1 nicely combined the lucidity and harmonic balance of CJ's tube Preamps with the superb definition and detail of solid state designs. Zero feedback design. There are zero polarized electrolytic caps used in the PF-1 whatsoever, even in the power supply. Rather all of the capacitors are very long life Polypropylene or CJD Polystyrene. All of the resistors are 1% metal deposited on glass construction. Inputs / Outputs: Phono, Tuner, Aux, monitor and recording facilities for two tape decks with dubbing from Tape 1 to Tape 2. Two Power Amp (main) outputs. In very good cosmetic shape with only some light scraches and minor blemishes from normal age wear and tear but nothing deep or very noticable. There is also one minor ding or less than a 1/4" dent located on the left rear side of the top cover (see photo). It has never been rack mounted so there is no rack rash. I did note that the phono grounding plug is a little bent but could be bent back straight rather easily, and that two of the feet are not original but appear to be the same height. Very nice Preamp overall. It mates well with both tube and solid state Amps. The sound quality is tube like accurate and transparent. No box or manual, and it is not remote capable. Comes from non smoking home. Payment is by U.S.Postal Money Order only please. I will pack very securely for safe arrival. Please check my feedback and buy with confidence. I have been with Audiogon since 2007 but I have not sold anything in the last 12 months so no current feedback is listed, but my previous score of 100% feedback is still listed in the A'Gon archives under "all time" feedback if you click on my feedback. thank you.
