Canary Audio CA 803 Dual Mono Preamplifiers

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

The circuitry components used in the CA-803 are carefully chosen and hand soldered on the military grade epoxy circuit boards. Only pure silver/Teflon coaxial cables were used for routing between the jacks and the gold plated ELMA rotary switch. The volume control being used is a 24-positions stepped attenuator hand. Even the DC power cables used to connect the line stages to the power supplies were built. The CA-803 is truly a dual mono left and right separated preamplifier that offers a true channel separation. Delivers high transparency, wide dynamics soundstage and three-dimensional imaging, the CA-803 is simply the finest preamplifier one could desire.

Bottom Line:   
This preamp has been a true revelation with regard to sound staging, resolution and the suspension of disbelief when listening to recorded music. It is far more open and realistic than any I have owned!
The dual mono four box arrangement and the size of the boxes [the two are wider than your 18in. rack and need two shelves!!] are a bit of a pain but the rewards in sound are WELL WORTH THE HEADACHES!!!
I've had Audible illusions m3a, Melos ma333 and a custom preamp from Deja Vu audio and the Canary is better than all buy a country mile!
