For sale like new Conrad Johnson CAV45 control amplifier. This unit is in like new condition and comes with documentation and original box.
Unlike a typical integrated amplifier, a control amplifier eliminates the preamplifier stage altogether, thereby eliminating its inherent distortions, at the same time preserving the integrated amplifier’s performance advantage of avoiding interconnect cables between control section and power amplifier as well as the cost advantage of consolidating these functions in a single chassis.
The CAV-45 employs a pair of classic EL34s in each channel to produce 45 Watts per channel. As with all conrad-johnson tube amplifiers, output tube biasing is simplified by the use of our built-in bias circuit. The CAV45 accepts three line-level inputs. Exceptional parts quality is the rule at conrad-johnson, and to this, the CAV-45 is no exception
