Looks like I got a bonus with my new CSP2+ as Steve let it burn in during Zenfest so I got to go right to the awesome sound.

Congratulations! Have to say though that you have even more awesome sound ahead of  you. My new CSP2+ is still getting better sounding week by week!

I am enjoying the heck out of the CSP2+. I have swapped rectifier's a couple of times but have settled in with a Jan Sylvania 5U4G. I also put a Genalex Golden Lion ECC88/6922 in place of the stock 6N1P in the front position.

Still running the Cambridge DacMagic Plus for USB Audio from the MBPro and my venerable Denon DVD-5900 for all types of shiny discs.

The Senn HD650's have never been happier!   :)

The CSP2+ is a very special preamp. I thought the CSP2 was excellent, and it is, but the changes to make it a + were well-executed and brings the machine achieve a new level of sonics and makes it even more useful.

Where do you obtain those little yellow nipples to cover the unused RCA's?

I just priced yellow rubber caps .320" dia X .250" at $.25 a piece for a order of 5000. I guess I could become the yellow cap guy for the world.
Donnie's special "Mojo" caps, yellow because it is the best sounding color. Fights stray micromonostiathalon waves from entering your equipment. EFI, RFI, FBI proof. If you can't tell the difference with these in your amp, you must be deaf and ugly.
Regular price of $48.48. Introductory price of $24.24 a piece*. Don't be the last person on your street to own these babys.

                             

* Shipping $112.24 a piece to anyplace in my general vacinity.
