Preview: Conrad Johnson LP125sa Power Amplifier
Johnson has been making fine tube power amplifiers for almost 40 years now and the new LP-125sa is more evolutionary than revolutionary; borrowing from their past LP series of amplifiers and their current Art amplifiers.
However, the results are indeed stunning. With 125 watts per channel, thanks to a quartet of KT120 output tubes, the LP125 does not sound like a vintage tube amplifier. If the last time you sampled a CJ power amplifier was more than 10 years ago, you don’t know what you are missing. -Jeff Dorgay
