    Yeah, I've heard it in action, but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. It is probally 10-15 years old.

    The CX1/CX2 are two of the best preamps Yamaha ever built. Very nice, and outstanding specs. They were quite expensive when new...

    considering it was about $800 new, I'd say dad is hooking you up...Congrats!

    Sid, that looks like a great 2-channel rig you've got going, very nice--good components. Simplicity...I like that.
