Although I don't have a record collection, I do miss the ritual of removing them from the sleeve and preparing them for playing. It was a few moments of being slow and deliberate that doesn't happen with digital media.

cogitech, I plan on trying them both both 2A3 and 300B. It will probably be a while before I get around to them.

I bought a Crest Pro 3301 for $200 shipped. I only bought it because cosmetically, it's in fantastic shape. Turns out it works, and I don't see any evidence of it ever being opened before.

What's amazing to me is that despite being from 1994 (best I can tell), the inside is almost clean enough to eat off of. There's also no evidence that it's ever been rack-mounted before. Makes me suspect that it was either a spare that saw little use, or was used only occasionally in a studio.

Planning to do a couple of modifications to the peak limiter circuit, maybe a quieter fan (though it really isn't all that loud) and some bias adjustments. THD is pretty much pinned at 0.02% regardless of load- that makes me wonder if maybe the THD is dominated by the NE5517-based peak limiter circuit. I'll have to do some more digging to know for sure.

Should make a nice little amp for driving studio monitors / home stereo. It's the smallest amplifier from that series, rated at about 230W into 8 ohms- so it isn't ridiculous. Compared to most pro amps, I think the cosmetic design is rather tasteful.

Pro amps are hit and miss, IMO, but I generally like the design of this one. It looks like Crest did their homework and designed a good amplifier.

What could Jordan make that could be of interest to readers of this forum? OK, maybe older readers of this forum? Google tells me that they still exist. Pricey stuff though.

Try sticking "JX92S" into the search box on diyAudio and see what you find.
