 Tubes Used / Tube Placement Diagram

This preamp is in as near perfect working order as I can tell and I am selling it only because I recently purchased and fully upgraded a  PV-5. I'll call the PV-7 an 8 out of 10 as there is probably something an expert could find that I can't. There are some scratches on the bottom of the unit that I inherited when I purchased it last year.

I will say that the sound is classic "Conrad Johnson Sweet" and this unit holds its own even when compared to my severely upgraded PV-5. I'm also impressed that CJ doesn't scrimp on material and this little bugger weighs in at 12 pounds, 13 ounces.

Tubes have been in use for a while and could stand to be replaced for the best sonic results, but all still test in the good to strong range on my calibrated Eico 667.

--- Tube in V1 is an Electro Harmonix 12AX7's and tests 95/93
--- Tube in V2 is an Electro Harmonix 12AX7's and tests 92/95
--- Tube in V4 is brand unknown 12AX7 with markings are worn and it tests 98/91
--- Tube in V3 is brand unknown marked 12AT7/ECC81 W. Germany and test 85/82
--- Tube in V5 is brand unknown marked 12AT7WC and tests 85/83

I will absorb PayPal and Shipping fees at $540 USD, extremely well packaged and delivered anywhere in the continental US.

NOTE: I have the original box with original foam packing materials that I will double-box for shipping.
