"Single-end triode (SET) tube amplifiers have long been considered the Holy Grail of music reproduction systems, operating in the purest form of class-A power output. Cary Audio began in 1989 by producing a SET monoblock amplifier as its first product, and today the CAD-805AE proudly carries on that tradition. Using just one tube to handle the entire musical signal typically does not allow for more than a few watts of output power, but the CAD-805AE, with its massive power supply, is able to produce over 50 watts."

Cosmetic Ratings - we're often asked "why is your numerical rating so low when the product looks great?" We tend to be very conservative when applying a cosmetic "rating" to products. Virtually nothing is a 10/10 unless it is nearly new and looks factory fresh. Our 8/10 is what a lot of people might call "mint".
