Products C5000 Four Chassis Preamplifier



C5000 Reference Grade
Dual Mono Four Chassis Preamplifier
 
The Best of the Best:
 
The C5000 is our newest reference grade preamplifier featuring the use of twelve vacuum tubes. Luxurious Dual Mono four chassis design (left and right channel fully seperated) with matching external power supplies further guarantees interference-free performance.

The newly designed line stage units feature the use of premium 12AU7 and 12AX7 vacuum tubes which guarantees a low noise operation. The modified power supply units eliminate any power line noise and the redistribution of power supply noise. Balanced input and output are provided to insure optimum performance with fine quality source components.

The C5000 is specially designed for pure high-end audiophiles who want nothing but the best. Delivers high transparency, wide dynamics soundstage, and three-dimensional imaging, the C5000 is simply "The Best" preamplifier that we have ever built and is the finest preamplifier one could desire.
