What else to know about the Conrad-Johnson PV5?

The sophisticated circuitry allowed the PV5 to outperform preamps nearly three times it price. The PV5 was the personal choice as a reference preamp for many audio reviewers at the time! Low noise mil-spec resistors and polypropylene capacitors were used throughout the PV5 and the famous “CJD” polystyrene capacitors were used throughout the signal path. Their wide bandwidth and low sonic “memory” permitted precise attack and decay of musical transients. RIAA phono equalization was set with 1% tolerance parts. Eight factory burned-in vacuum tubes were used in the PV5.
