    I believe C-1 is the only pre with v-fets...Not just from Yamaha, but from any other mfg.

    that's what I thought that it was just the C-1 but the way you guys were talking I thought there might be more. That C-1 is killer looking for sure. I have never actually seen one in person.

    Yes for a dedicated Pre amp only , But the Sony 4650 and 5650 have V-fets in the phono stage of the pre amp I believe.
