Default "Critical mass" p3-gtx tube pre-amp

CRITICAL MASS P3 GTX 4 CHANNEL TUBE PRE AMP FOR SALE from HONG KONG @ Adpost.com Classifieds > New Zealand > CRITICAL MASS P3 GTX 4 CHANNEL TUBE PRE AMP FOR SALE from HONG KONG ,free,classified ad,classified ads,secondhand,second hand



Found here:
Critical Mass 4 Channel Tube Pre-Amp (P3-GTX), China Critical Mass 4 Channel Tube Pre-Amp (P3-GTX) products- China Critical Mass 4 Channel Tube Pre-Amp (P3-GTX) Manufacturer, supplier


Any relation to the "snoop dog" Critical Mass or are they just stealing the name/logo?

Interesting find, and really not a bad looking pre-amp. That being said, it's pretty cheezy having LED's to illuminate a piece of tube gear though.

Is this crazy or what? I'm actually not going to bash CM here. If you are looking for a pre-amp with tubes, this is a pretty well made one and the price is very resonable. I think the 2 channel was something like $275 shipped. It's a little more than the Soundstream, but less than half the price of a Milbert.

I don't think this is sold here in the US and perhaps the Chinese company which makes CM amps is taking a little creative license with their logo. I do not think these are "authorized" CM products, but the guy who sells them in Hong Kong seems legit and he answers questions. How could they be "real" CM with a price like that?

Crazy huh? I actually considered buying this, a Critical Mass product.

I contacted the guy. The 4 channel is hard to get. They always seem to be out of stock. The two channel was much cheaper than I thought. Turns out you can get it for $155 + $30 shipping. Maybe the four channel was $275.

It's a very nice looking piece. It gives you an idea what prices CM should legitimately be asking for their products.

That's what he told me also. I think it must internally divide the rear channel to provide a sub output. It has 4 inputs, 6 outputs. They are staggered so they don't show up well in the picture, but there are 10 RCA jacks.

No suprise, preamp tubes barely light up, many companies jive them a little help

Hmmm. I did search the forum and I'm shocked nobody posted this allready. Agreed it did look like a decently built item. Could we set up a group buy?

I'd take one at 155$ before Snoop gets one in his Car and the price goes up to 4,000$

I might be interested in it as a line driver since it has 9v out, but the S/N ratio isn't very good. That price was from about 2 years ago. I got the impression that the price varies depending on when you talk to him.

Can someone look into buying a few. I bet I could flip a few on eBay for a profit as well. I'll put up pics of snoop dog and shaq.
