Cayin - CS-55A Integrated Amplifier
Cayin CS-55A Integrated Amplifier
The CS-55A is the most recent advancement in tube amplifier technology created by Cayin. This state-of-the-art machine boasts forty watts per channel by using 4 KT88 tubes in Class AB ultra-linear push pull amplification. The CS-55A consists of four pairs of input: one Phono, a USB port, and two line inputs giving a wide range of options for any listener.
The CS-55A comprises of a fully anodized aluminum front, a vented chassis with a gorgeous finish, the finest hand-made point-to-point wiring, and a soft-start circuit to enhance the life of the toroidal power transformer and output transformers. Combined with audio grade capacitors, carbon film resistors, and ceramic tube sockets, this is one amplifier every audiophile should have in his/her collection. Speaker output impedance can be swapped between 4 ohms and 8 ohms. Similarly to the A-88T.
Cayin CS-55A is the sucessor to the much loved A-55TP has been totally reworked and redesignd from the ground up to offer un-matched performance and value.
The CS-55A is the first model from the new CS Export range that offers many improvments and even more value for the customer.
CS-55A is a KT-88 Tube based unit from the factory but a switch on the rear enables you to change to EL family tubes to enjoy tube rolling and sample different sound tastes. Now we offer an inbuilt Bias meter for easy adjustments and no need for multi meters.
And now for the digital age, we have a high end 32bit-384Khz DAC in built so you can connect your MAC or PC ect into your CS-55A and stream your digital music into your hifi system without the need for ugly add on's.
With full remote control to round this complete package, you may never need another Amplifier!
