Cayin Introduces new Tube Amplifier CS-805A

Cayin's new single-ended Class A integrated amplifier uses two 805A tubes in the output stage, as well as other tubes.

Besides the two 805A output tubes, Cayin's new CS-805A also features WE6SN7 tubes in the voltage amplification stage and 300B tubes in the driver stage for the output tubes. With an integrated bias indicator, bias adjustment for the 805A tubes is said to be straightforward; in addition, the 300B tubes can be levelled via a hum balance control. The negative feedback can also be switched between 0 and -3db via the included remote control.

In addition to three analog line inputs, the CS-805A has a headphone output and a preamp input, which opens up the possibility of using it as a power amp. The tubes are protected by a soft-start circuitry and high-voltage delay, which are supposed to ensure a longer life. If a tube malfunctions, a high-voltage fuse aims to protect the rest of the amplifier's circuitry from damage.

In Germany, Cayin's new CS-805A tube integrated amplifier is said to be available now at a price of €6400 in black or silver.
