For sale: a Classe CP-700 preamp in great condition. This model is a real stunner and was Classe's flagship model for several years, retailing new for an $8k MSRP. The preamp has a separate power supply to keep it away from the fully differential balanced audio circuitry. In addition, you get the build quality of this legendary unit, as it was Classe's last true analog preamp, and their last preamp to be made in Canada before they moved their production to China for the CP-800.
It seems to be a near-universal opinion that the CP-700 was the best analog preamp Classe has ever made, and it certainly sounds the part. I've owned dozens of preamps, and this is easily among my top 2, being neck and neck with the Simaudio Moon Evolution P-7. It sounds delicate, transparent, incredibly smooth and completely grain-free. This level of performance and musicality is an absolute steal at this used price. This unit I'm selling also includes the optional phono input.
Soundstage Ultra published a rave review of the CP-700 when it was first released: https://www.soundstageultra.com/equipment/classe_delta_cp700.htm
The unit is in very good condition with the only blemish I can see being 2 small dings on the left side of the power supply.
Sale includes original packaging (which is very cool and durable), remote control, power cord, power umbilical, and manual.
Buyer to pay shipping at a $70 flat rate, I'll cover PayPal fees. Free local pickup available in the Atlanta area. Willing to drive a reasonable distance for a local sale.
All reasonable offers entertained, but extreme lowball offers will immediately be declined without a counteroffer. Please be reasonable. I know how much this preamp is worth as I am a longtime subscriber to Audiogon's Bluebook.
