Sold: Conrad Johnson PV2AR Pre-Amplifier

Recommended Posts

A classic tube pre: the Conrad Johnson PV-2AR pre-amp. Originally a PV-2, this particular unit was upgraded to the PV-2AR. It was also rebuilt at the CJ factory with a brand new power supply and tube set of NOS GE and JAN Philips. It has only been used about 25 hours since that service. Works like a charm and sounds great. The tubed phono section while quiet, is not silent. After all, it is 40 years old and has three tubes.
A bargain entry into the famed Conrad Johnson sound. 
Rated as very good condition as noted by the clean front panel as shown in pictures. Even so, I’ll conservatively rate it a 7 due to age. An old, but functioning tube set is also included. Comes with original CJ box, packaging, and documentation included.
