What else to know about the Conrad-Johnson Premier 15?
"Yes, you'll find some phono sections that are somewhat quieter, some that offer slightly greater transparency, a few that deliver a shade more extension at the frequency extremes or are better able to resolve low-level detail and perhaps yield slightly greater depth—but few will be as well balanced and musically satisfying as the Conrad-Johnson Premier 15. It was neither sluggish nor ""speedy,"" didn't sound syrupy or clinical, and didn't suffer from any obvious tonal anomalies.
What few, minor weaknesses it had were more than overshadowed by its overwhelmingly strong overall performance—especially in the midrange, where it was mesmerizingly good. In the end, if you just sit down and listen to music and forget the little slices of the hi-fi pie, you may very well conclude that the Premier 15 is the phono section you've got to have." - Stereophile, Fremer
