Every conrad-johnson TEA2 Phono Equalization Preamplifier is patiently and carefully hand assembled, then individually inspected and its performance verified by an experienced audio technician.
The TEA2SE takes the parts quality up a notch further.
Sixteen of the most critical resistors in the audio circuit are upgraded to laser-trimmed metal foil resistors. A dozen capacitors are upgraded to CJD Teflon capacitors (chosen for their exceptionally low “memory” characteristic), including intra-stage coupling capacitors and critical “bypass” capacitors. Finally, the ac line cord is upgraded to an excellent medical grade cord.
The TEA2MAX exhibits the extensive use of premium parts found in our flagship offerings.
All resistors (34 in total) in the audio circuit and its regulated power supply are upgraded to the laser-trimmed metal foil types and in addition to the bypass capacitor upgrades found in the SE, the 4.0 micro Farad output coupling capacitors are upgraded to CJD Teflon as well. As in the SE, the ac line cord is also upgraded.
