The new Cayin A88t MKII Signature has been immediately top-positioned and highly recommended in the strict amplifier review of the “AUDIO” magazine 11/12. Their tube expert Johannes Maier was mad about it’s sonic performance: „Bass players virtually came forward with fierce grin – whoever knows such blessed amplifiers, knows about the experience: When the rhythm becomes suddenly hypnotic, the train starts to move and the trip begins – we join the journey ." Coming down-to-earth again, the things look as follows: All functions remote controlled, encapsulated Alps volume-control motor potentiometer, weight just under 30 kilos, a tube squad with 2 x 6SL7 2 x 6SN7 and the output stage equipped with four KT88 – makes 2 x 25 watts put into triode mode or a strong 2 x 45 watts in the ultralinear mode, all at 4 and 8 ohms.
Whoever likes to experiment with different output tubes, will find a switch at the back for the adaptation of the tube bias to different types like EL34’s. Three high level inputs are available as well as a Pre-In giving direct access to the amp’s output stage for the connection of a preamp or the front channel outputs of a surround receiver.
Also, a major bonus for the A-88T MK2 Signature is it has been designed to run the awesome new KT-120 power tubes. The KT-120 offer a huge and powerful sound without loosing finesse and detail.
