    Thanks for the welcome.Just got into late night listening with headphones.Didn't realize there were so many options.Might need to put a couple more zip ties around the wallet.

    Looks like you're a fan of Nelson Pass! I've always enjoyed his designs.The guy is an audio genius.When I first got into this (cough cough) hobby..I bought all Conrad Johnson equipment.Still have my old M75A amp.Bloom from Apogee was right up there too.Wish I still had my Duettas.Very nice system you have..

    Hi Ardy, Interesting, before having Pass I had CJ as well, I had two MV60's converted to mono, started with a PV14ls2 pre and then a CT-6. I also use Sennheiser HD600 but with Musical Fidelity X-can. The Pass is engaging like CJ but gives back more control and power.

    Welcome Ardy! Very nice gear. I use to own a 840c. It's a very good CDP.

    Thanks blackraven.The 840c has never had any problems..(knock on wood) and might be my last cdp depending on the future of cd's.

    Hi Ardy and welcome to the forum. The first 12 steps are usually the hardest but all the subsequent steps are a piece of cake. :)

    Is the J.R. pre a tube, SS, or hybrid?
