This pre amplifier is not my cup of tea. It sounds very analytical, unnatural and not coherent. It didn't grab at all, I found it lacks musically swing. My Harman Karton AP2500 may have a lack of inner details, but it sounds far more coherent and possessed a natural musically swing. Maybe the Adcom doesn't mix well with the Bryson 3b power amp. Anyhow, I wasn't impressed with the Adcom FGP-555 at all.

I bought the preamp used last year for $150.00. Best money I ever spent on my system, super quiet, great phono section. I use this preamp with my rebuilt EICO HF-35 35watt tube monoblocks and the soundstage is amazing.

GREAT Preamp I've had mine for 30 years.

Replace ALL the capacitors with good ones including the tone control caps and you might be surprised just how good this very old preamp can sound.

The ADCOM 555II is one of the best "bang for your buck" pre-amps out there. Check ebay for bargains. I've had zero problems in all the time I've owned it, about ten years. I think about upgrading to a "6" series from time to time, but there really is no need.
