Cary Audio CAD 120S (OPEN)

Like new! High-gloss Jaguar Carnival Red chassis with silver faceplate. 120 wpc ultralinear, 60 wpc triode, switchable on the fly. This one also has factory-upgraded Jensen oil/copper capacitors...a must-have upgrade for any Cary tube amp! Cary Audio did not make very many of these amps in this color combination and it is stunning!

Tubes were left out to show off the finish, but this amp will include the complete tube set. 

One available to a lucky guy for a smokin' deal! Open but like-new! There are some minor flaws in the finish that was like this from the factory, but they are hard to see except at certain angles.

Now here's the 411 on the CAD-120S versus the CAD-120S MKII. The Mark II uses a different front end tube, making it more sensitive for use in home theater applications. The down side of the MKII is that because the front end is more sensitive, the idle hiss goes up especially with more effecient speakers. I would never personally buy a MKII. Why do it?
