"As for the unit in general it's a phase inverting no frills item. But then again, CJ is not about "bells and whistles", it's about sound quality. The PV12 gives a warm neutral sound. It doesn't "flavor" the sound in any exaggerated way that I can tell. It does offer excellent dynamics and clarity. What can I say? "It just sounds right." If you find that this is not the case, check your tubes. I had one of the tubes go out and noticed it with a background noise. However, after replacing the tube, not only did the background noise go away, but the clarity and dynamics went through the roof!" - User Review
