CANARY C1600 2-Chassis Pre-Amplifier

The C1600 is the two chassis version of Canary Audio’s reference C3000 preamplifier featuring a matching external power supply.  The performance and dead-silence of this pre is at a level that’s truly stunning.

The C1600 is specially designed for pure high-end audiophiles who want nothing but the best. With the use of ultra-high quality, hand picked parts and components, the C1600 is simply "The Best preamplifier Canary has ever built".  The build quality, dead-silent operation and heavenly flow-through of transparent audio, puts the C-1600 near the very best preamps ever made.

We believe this Pre to be a one owner unit.  It was taken on trade from a client who meticulously cares for his gear and its near flawless.  From a non-smoking, pet and kid free home.
