NAKAMICHI CA-5 PREAMP W/MC &MM PHONO [Expired]


no longer for sale

This preamplifier was the original giant killer! Designed by the the legendary Nelson Pass, with one of the best phono stages ever from the genius mind of John Curl! The unit is in excellent cosmetic condition (Near Mint See photo's). I had this beauty completely recapped with audiophile grade, Elna Silmic capacitors and an upgraded and larger power supply with new ultrafast soft recovery rectifiers, bypassed in with Polypropelene film caps in both the line and phono stages. Other upgrades include Caddock, Vishay/Dale .1%, Takman and Kiwame audiophile resistors in key areas, the refurbishing was performed in Nov. 2015! (At a cost of $400). It now sounds better than it did when new. If your part of the Vinyl revival this preamp is the one to get, its MC/MM phono section is world renown and truly is one of the best sounding ever made! Nakamichi sold these preamps for $900 in the late 80's which is approx. $2000 these days, and thats about what you would have to spend to get comparable performance from the new stuff! It was then and still is one of the best audiophile bargains you can find! Buyer to assume shipping, insurance and Paypal fees, Thanks
