What else to know about the Conrad-Johnson Premier 11?

"It should be obvious that I hold the Conrad-Johnson Premier Eleven in high esteem—I've done little here but rave about it. Is it perfect? Of course not. But neither is anything else out there. For my taste, listening to the music that I listen to (primarily, but not exclusively, acoustic) at the levels I listen at (not all that loud), I haven't heard its equal, much less its superior. If your speakers are power-hungry—or represent difficult loads—then a 70Wpc tubed amplifier may not be for you. But, now that I've taken its measure, I can't imagine life without the Premier Eleven, so perfectly do its strengths and my listening prejudices mesh. I've looked longingly at its siblings—the monoblock Premier Twelves—but spend more time fantasizing about how well a pair of Elevens would sound passively bi-amping the Aeriuses. If you've got the bucks, you just have to audition these. You'll thank me for it. Really." - Stereophile, Phillips
