High-End Line Stage Pre-Amplifier


A compact-sized linestage preamplifier with full-sized features. Designed for power amps like the Cayin 880 and 9084D, its tube compliment consists of two 12AX7, two 12AU7 and one 5AR4. Its distinguishing musical characteristics are defined by its clarity, agility and exceptional soundstage.

The huge capsuled toroidal power transformer prevents magnetic leakage to give very quiet performance and full dynamic music reproduction. Cayin’s first dedicated high-end preamp, built to the exacting standards that apply to their integrated and power amps.
