  1. This is a great sounding pre and power and imo very underestimated in the U.K. I’ve had some nice gear over the years and this beats them all but the itch has been scratched and I’ve now moved on to hybrids . Top notch build quality There is a very small scratch on the top of the power amp ( which I did but I don’t know how) and a small mark on the fascia . I have recapped the SC-25 . The knobs on the pre are not the correct duck billed one but I’m confident that they are from another Conrad Johnson preamp. The serial number on the pre says sc-26 ? They both operate flawlessly . SA-250 specs ..... The SA250 is rated at 125 watts per channel into two channels. Here are some specs: Gain 25.5 dB Input Impedance 110k Ohms S/N Ratio 96 dB relative to 125 watts Dimensions: 13.25”D X 17.125”W X 4.875”H, weight 30 lbs. SC-25 specs ..... SC25 Line-Stage Preamplifier Gain: 21dB Output: 7 V RMS Phase: Phase inverting. Response: 5 Hz to 100KHz Signal to Noise Ratio (20Hz-20KHz): 94 dB Distortion: less than .25% THD Dimensions: 11.5"D x 17.125"W x 2.75"H Weight: 12 lbs. Gain: 40 dB Phono Overload: 100 mV Equalization: within +/- .25 dB of RIAA standard Signal to Noise Ratio (20 Hz to 20 kH): 80 dB below 10 mV input I’m looking for £650 for the pair. Collection and demo from Milton Keynes or I could possibly deliver or meet for say an hours drive . Pm if interested please Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Sounds bloody good to my ears ( and others ) I was just curious, the manual of my alchemist kraken pre and power says a similar thing . Thanks for the info Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So I would ( and do ) connect as normal ie; red to red black to black and left to left etc ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi, thanks for the plain English translation. The power amp manual says it’s “ phase correct “. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Can anyone explain what this means ? just reading through the owners manual of my Conrad Johnson preamp and it mentioned “ absolute phase “ . I have attached a screenshot of the page below . cheers
