Concert Fidelity' CF-080LSX2 preamplifier

Concert Fidelity's new CF-080LSX2 preamplifier is a hybrid line stage (it uses tubes and solid-state devices) that retails for $20,000 and incorporates what the company says are chip-based resistors in critical places in the circuit design -- a feature that is reported to improve clarity. One other neat feature is  the way the tubes are mounted. They are accessible from the rear panel.
