Good for Jeff Fischel. Smart move. Looks like there are now plans to kick it up a notch.

Default New ownership at CJ

Very happy for Jeff, great guy, great company!
Bill and Lew made a great choice, great to see them turn it over to a long time employee rather than sell out!
Hats off to Bill & Lew and good luck to Jeff

Looked at the CJ website. They have a picture of the new ET 7. The ET 5 is now listed in vintage. Are they eliminating the 5 ?

I talked to Jeff this week on the phone and my pv5 preamp is now in transit for a new power supply. I have full confidence in in this continuing business model.

Have only talked to Jeff during the last year. Am downsizing and will be happy if am still a "CJ person" once two of three systems are gone. Wish Jeff the best of luck.
