Cayin CS-6LA Preamplifier
Cayin’s original SC-6LS was recognized as one of the best preamplifiers available on the market. The new CS-6LA version refines this masterpiece with a new design and high quality components. Cayin selects high-quality American Multicap coupling capacitors and Japanese TAKMAN carbon film resistors to best match the tonal aspects of the SC-6LS. Tube rectification is performed by two US RCA 22DE4 rectifier tubes. Using with the four 12AU7EH gives sound imaging that is clear and crisp. A generously sized power transformer and chokes stand for optimal dynamics and stability of the sound. In addition, the preamplifier includes a remote for easy control. As always, Cayin finishes with a high-quality aluminum front plate characterized by high oxidation resistance and low surface photosensitivity.
As another aspect of the new design, the SC-6LS pairs magnificently with Cayin’s powerful CS-845M Monoblock Amplifiers.
