CAT SL-1 Ultimate Preamplifier

This review is much more than the result of a number of listening sessions over a two year period. It is really the story of one person’s quest for the attainment of the goal of having exceptional music reproduction available at the turn of a dial and the drop of a needle.

Classé CT-M300 Power Amplifier

The Classe CT-M300 monoblock solid state power amplifier is a nicely made component. They arrive double boxed and the inner box opens like a flower to reveal the very well protected contents. Included with each amplifier is a rack mount kit.

Conrad Johnson Premier 15 Series 2 Phono Preamplifier

Think of the cardboard drink carrier that you get at the counter of a fast food restaurant when you order several drinks. The carrier doesn’t interact with the drinks in any way.

What is the highest frequency you can hear? The common belief is that the range of human hearing is from 20 Hertz (cycles per second) to 20,000 Hz. Young people can often hear frequencies at or near 20 kHz, but as we age and our hearing is damaged by years of loud music, gunfire (hopefully from sporting arms), civilization, and possibly vocational noise, our hearing acuity decreases in the upper frequencies.

2. It sets new standards for tube preamplifier performance in the very important criteria of signal-to-noise ratio.

EAR 88PB Phonograph Preamplifier

I was becoming complacent auditioning phono preamplifiers. It was as if I was standing in a long line for my turn on one of the good rides at Disneyland. If I was tolerant and patient, I would eventually be rewarded with a phono stage that would make all the waiting worthwhile.
