Cayin CS-100A Integrated Amplifier


Cayin have released their new CS-100A integrated valve amplifier, an update to the very popular A-100T from a couple of years ago.

The CS-100A has been totally reworked and now offers on-noard Bias meter and can run KT88 Valves as per factory or EL34 family valves from a simple flick of a switch on the rear panel.

High power output of 80wpc in Class AB Ultra Linear mode or 50wpc in Triode mode. Silver internal wiring is now used in the signal path for sparkeling clean topend production.

Full remote control and safty cage finish off this stunning high powered amplifier.
