What else to know about the Conrad-Johnson Act 2?
"There's no question the ART was a giant step forward, but Conrad-Johnson's ACT2 preamplifier forges a new path. Yes, at $12,000 it is a hideously expensive preamplifier that I could not afford to buy. However, my brief is not to review the audio products I can afford, but those that merit scrutiny—and there's no question that the ACT2 raises the bar for tube preamplifiers.
The ACT2 is physically gorgeous—a work of art as beautiful to behold as it is to listen to. And once it had burned in those crucial hundred hours, it was a revelation—as was every recording I listened to through it. In that, the ACT2 is like the ART, or like art itself: I may not know what it is, but I recognize it when I hear it. And to hear it is to want it.
I'm sure glad I'm not Conrad-Johnson, though. This will be a tough ACT to follow." - Stereophile, Phillips
