Bottom Line:   
I purchased this jewel used for $800.00 on Audiogon and haven't had any regrets. Like others have said, it has a "tube-like" sound with all the advantages of solid-state, reminds me of the Fisher X100B integrated amp I had as a teenager.

It matches up well with my C-J PF2L preamp from the mid 1990's. Highly recommended if you can find one, it took me a couple of months of searching before one showed up for sale.

My Main System:

Clearaudio Champion Magnum Turntable
w/ Clearaudio Satisfy Tonearm
Benz-Micro Ruby 3

C-J PF2L Preamp

Arcam Diva DV79 Disc Player

C-J MF-2250 Power Amp

Vienna Acoustics Mozart Loudspeakers

Bottom Line:   
Very heavy power amp. Huge transformer, 60,000 microFarads power supply. Lack of features: no XLR input, one pair of speaker, no variable gain. Gain 25.5 db.
The sound is exceptionally good. The highs are detailed AND soft. The mids are the best I ever heard. I thought that the SonoGraphe SA250 had "perfect" mids; well, the MF2250A is even better.
Detailed, fluid, wide and stable soundstage. The mids are so good that they attract attention, and I thought: ok, the bass are deep and precise, but this is not an amp for electronic music, the bass are too shy. Then, I tried a CD of Madonna. It is good, so good. The bass are strong and deep. Moreover, they are clear and don't mask the medium, like with a Parasound amp I tried a while ago.

Bottom Line:   
Has the qualities of a good tube amp, except the bass goes deeper and tighter. It is also more neutral across the entire frequency range, with correct harmonics. It is the coolest running amp I have ever experienced, yet sounds nothing like most low biased solid state amps. There is no listening fatigue. You are drawn into the music. This amp is a steal at what they sell for on the used market.

Bottom Line:   
This is an excellent sounding amp. It beats Classe Audio CAP-150 that I had a while ago. I did not know that until now Conrad Johnson makes good solid state gear. Buy with confidence! It just sounds right!

Bottom Line:   
I wanted a solid state amp that had the best sound qualities of tubes and solid state combined. It needed to be an improvement over my B&K ST-202+ (which is very good in it's own right) and not cost a fortune. The Connie-J MF2250 fills the bill perfectly when purchased used. Hey, it's a steal at full retail even! Excellent build quality and very cool running. Expect this amp to last decades with next to no attention. For B&K owners who want to upgrade from their old amps without spending a fortune while improving on that tubelike character that the B&K ST series was famous for (no mosfet mist here!), you can't do better than the latest Connie-J MF series. The rave reviews are right about these amps. IT JUST SOUNDS RIGHT
