Default Premier 350 phase inversion: yes it does

Okay folks... here's the latest official from c-j. Jeff is their technical Guru... he tests and burns in all their upper end products and does the upgrades we love so much:


Hi Bob --

Very nice chatting with you!

I have determined that the Premier 350 does invert absolute phase.

The statement is on page 6 of the newer owner's manual, which I will send to you
as soon as I remember how to do it.

I have also confirmed from Jeff that all PR350s are like that; which is to say, the earlier
units were NOT phase correct. The only update was the fuse that I mentioned.

Best regards,
ed

Great setup. I am sure they will make your Harbeth sing like never before. Just be sure to give them 100-200 hours of break in time.

Enjoy!

Congratulations, prith, and welcome aboard. And be sure to let us know what you hear once your ET3 and Classic 60 are up, running, and burned in.

Used to own one but don't know anymore. Nice, solid amplifier.
It's warm here tomorrow so I'm off to golf about 9:30 Eastern. Ed doesn't get in until late morning but I'll send him a note and let you know. You could give him a call as well...they're number is 703-698-8581 and if he doesn't answer the phone his direct extension is 302.

By the way, which is the right side of the Chesapeake Bay?

Bob

My 2500's phase correct (so says Page 6 of the manual). Since the A "mod" is actually a parts upgrade, I suspect your 2500A is also phase correct (i.e., it doesn't invert phase).

I suspect as well; but a fella can't be too sure about such things.
