I have a slightly used Cary Audio Integrated Tube Amp.
Great Amp, No scratches or dents'
800 in Upgrades Babe.
I paid 2750.00 for the amp and 800.00 in upgrades.
Up Grades are Cardas Caps
Many extra tubes
Everything cost about 4k babe.
I have factory warrantee and it was purchased January of 2012. I just upgraded to a Cary 300b-sei.
I have all recepits babe.
It's like Brand New.
Serious Audiophiles Only Babe.
The new Cary Audio Design Xciter D/A is more than simply a new product. The Xciter DAC contains cutting edge offerings from AKM Digital Devices along with new analog output devices from National Semiconductor. The National Semi metal can output devices were custom engineered specifically for Cary Audio Design. The heart of the Xciter D/A is the AKM model AK4399 32-Bit chip running at a 192kHz sampling rate. The soul of the Xciter D/A are the National Semi metal case TO-99 current feedback model LME4970NA direct coupled to the model LME49713 TO-99 final output devices. Over one year in development, the Xciter D/A offers a new level of home/office audio performance in a sleek, compact package. For the computer audio/video enthusiast there is nothing like driving the Xciter D/A from the USB output of your desktop, laptop or audio/video media server.
There are four selectable digital inputs on the rear panel consisting of a coaxial RCA, coaxial BNC, Toslink and a digital USB computer input. All four of these inputs are front panel selectable with corresponding blue LED’s indicating the selected source. The basic signal path of both the coaxial and Toslink inputs are software controlled and drive the AKM model AK4115 digital receiver device. The digital receiver in turn is direct coupled to the AKM model AK4399. These digital signals are then re-clocked within the Xciter D/A, sent to the National Semi metal can TO-99 current feedback output devices then out to the rear panel, single-ended RCA analog output jacks.
The USB 2.0 input receives a 24-48 kHz data stream which bypasses the receiver chip and is sent directly to the CM-108 device. This stream is then stripped as the bus separates the clock and data signals, resulting in a connection with an extremely low noise floor where jitter is almost nonexistent. This re-clocked stream is directed by the on board software of the Xciter DAC to the main AK4399 32 bit, 192 kHz processor chip, then out to the rear panel, single-ended RCA analog output jacks.
The above describes the basic operation and functionalities of the new Cary Audio Design Xciter Series Digital to Analog Converter. The advanced technologies incorporated within the new Xciter Series digital to analog converter such as digital signal re-clocking and sample rate up-conversion lead to the absolute highest sonic merits of D/A conversation currently available today.
