Default Conrad-Johnson Premier 350 discussion

They wonít even accept one unless itís pallet shipped, which I would do anyway. Iím not needing to do anything and, knocking on wood, the amp works brilliantly. I just begin to wonder when a mechanical device begins its second decade.

Maybe the question I should be asking is how long do the kind of caps in the Premier tend to last...are people replacing caps in even older vintage Cj gear?

IIRC, all the caps are Teflon and should last a very, very long time.

My 10 yr old Premier 350SA is still going strong. No signs of failing caps, or other issues, and no plans to upgrade to anything else!
