    Ray,

    Now that makes perfect sense. I never thought about it that way.

    No doubt that had I had the chance, I may have changed the CJ Logo somewhat also, highly unlikely I'd have picked what Jeff did, but having said all this, If I were in the market for the new amp, I'd buy the '27A in a heartbeat, BIG LOGO or not.

    mep,

    there’s nothing wrong with anyone venting their opinion about a product. Why stoke everyone to extremes. If I were to order one, I’d ask about a different front plate or a blank if I were serious. In the grand scheme of things, it wouldn’t stop me from buying one. Period.
    Venting your opinion is different than running around with your hair on fire over a stupid logo and claiming it ruined your day. There is more history to this new logo than what you see here Joe. Maybe Polo will change their logo to a donkey and people will really have something to be upset about.

    Re: Conrad Johnson ART27A Stereo Triode Tube Amp

    Are you saying that the new logo is rooted in some CJ history that we either don’t know or understand? So it’s not really new at all?

    Please help us (me) understand.

    No, I'm talking about the same thread that was posted on AN about the logo.

    It’s funny, I don’t visit many other forums these days. I guess I’m not really looking for anything. I’m very happy. After having a mental block, I finally realized what you meant by AN.

    I don’t remember if it was mentioned here on AS, but I’m truly sorry to read about Maggie and what happened. It’s heartbreaking.

    Thanks Mark.

    Thanks Joe. It’s still raw.

After all, didn't you say on AN that when you saw the new logo it ruined your day which I had a strong reaction to?
    Are you serious? The ugly as fccuk logo did ruin my day - figuratively, not literally. Do you get that?


    I told conrad johnson my exact thoughts on their facebook page, so I assume they do read that.

    I’m biting my tongue on this thread. Not a fan of the new owner. He goes back on his word.

    I miss Bill and Lou. Men of integrity and vision.

    Obviously the logo is too big, it looks like a big ego.
    Hi÷end is deviant sometimes ... people are divided sometimes ...

    What a beautiful spring day on the island, all the trees are in flowers and the birds singing their best melodies.

    By the way, what is AN?

    P.S. Sorry but in my search I did not find a Forum operation feedback section.
    With my portable I cannot any longer Edit my posts. Am I alone on this?

    Enjoy this gorgeous day all. Even the bees are all busy right now and buzzing like crazy.

    Wow, six years already. I remember very well like it was just yesterday.
