  • SLI-80HS

    For many years the SLI-80 integrated amplifier has been the standard by which all other vacuum tube integrated amplifiers are judged…period! As Cary Audio’s entry into the magic of vacuum tube music systems, it’s nothing short of stunning. Thousands of music lovers all over the world have heard and seen the virtues of this spectacular vacuum tube integrated amplifier.

    The new SLI-80HS (Heritage Series) maintains the integrity of its past. Its circuit uses very little feedback which gives it incredible transparency and detail in the music while providing bass texture and impact that belies its rated power output. Solid-state rectification adds excellent pace to the music and offers improved dynamics and bass detail over earlier versions. The depth of sound and transparency will cause you to snap your head in disbelief as you look to see the musicians performing in front of you. A pair of toggle switches select either triode mode producing 40 watts per channel of pure Class A power, or ultra-linear mode which doubles power to 80 watts per channel in Class AB. If you’re listening to more subtle music and want to hear all of the inner detail and richness, select triode mode for the most lifelike imaging and tonal accuracy. Or, if you want to really let loose, switch to ultra-linear mode and enjoy the extra power and dynamics. Your choice!

    For several years now, the world renown loudspeaker company, Klipsch, has been using the SLI-80 at various audio shows around the world in combination with their award-winning Heritage Series product line. From the famous Klipschorns to the Heresy III and all models in between, the combination is amazing. As a result of this collaboration, Cary Audio has partnered with Klipsch to design a version of the SLI-80 to directly complement their Heritage Series product line. Black Ash, Cherry, and Walnut wood side panels are available below as an additional accessory of the new SLI-80HS (Heritage Series) integrated amplifier to match the various finishes of the loudspeakers in the Klipsch Heritage Series. The visual effect is amazing!

    The SLI-80HS cage cover helps secure your vacuum tubes from little ones running around, pets, or even just for extra protection! When purchasing a new SLI-80HS, you will have the option to add this to your order below and it will come attached to your SLI-80HS with free shipping. You can choose to purchase this separately later, but shipping charges will be applied.

  • AiOS (All-in-One-System)

    Hi-Fi Choice Award          S&V AiOS Award

    Features

    AiOS is a new kind of music system for a new generation. What does that mean? Simply put, music lovers and audiophiles alike have many more choices today when it comes to how they listen to music. As a music system with 150 watts of Class AB power, AiOS combines sources and inputs designed around this new age. AiOS is also Roon Ready and fully MQA Certified, but unlike other MQA products to date, AiOS will playback any MQA sample rate up to 16x. This means despite the original sample rate of the MQA file, the MQA decoder will extrapolate the file to either a 705.6 or 768 kHz sampling rate for stunning realism and studio quality sound.  For non-MQA files, AiOS can stream or playback native PCM files up to 32 bit 384 kHz (.WAV files up to 768 kHz), plus DSD 64, 128, 256, and 512. Connect AiOS to your home network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) and stream all of your digital music stored on your networked computer(s) or NAS drive(s) with simple plug N play UPnP, DLNA, and SMB connectivity. Also, available through your home network connection are integrated internet music streaming services, Spotify, TIDAL, vTuner, and others being added. For those that may find a home network connection too intimidating, AiOS allows you to insert a SD Card into the front SD Slot. You can also use a USB flash drive or USB hard drive loaded with digital music files directly to AiOS’ three USB-A inputs, all without a computer or network connection for direct playback! How about Bluetooth? Today, Bluetooth is ubiquitous and AiOS can certainly connect to your smartphone or tablet using the latest Qualcomm aptX© Bluetooth technology. However, AiOS has an extra trick up its sleeve. AiOS can SEND any of its selected sources to Bluetooth enabled headphones or speakers for a completely wireless music system. Place AiOS anywhere to add beauty and elegance to any room or décor and don’t fuss over unsightly wires when paired to a set of Bluetooth enabled speakers.

    Speaking of beauty and elegance, AiOS is visually transformative. With the touch of a button, AiOS can change its backlit keys/buttons and center LCD display (together or individually) to six different preset colors including one custom color preset, or adjust any color as you see fit within the entire color spectrum. As if the all-aluminum gunmetal gray chassis and side panels (standard) weren’t handsome enough, AiOS offers five additional side panel color options to ensure AiOS can create the perfect blend of sight and sound to match both your lifestyle and décor choices within any setting.

    Finally, AiOS includes multiple analog and digital inputs and outputs, including subwoofer output, preamplifier output, and more! Whether using AiOS as a secondary music system, or as the centerpiece of your home entertainment system, AiOS is right at home within a metropolitan condominium setting, office, bedroom, game room, dormitory, or any room or setting for the design conscience music lover.

  • SLI-100

    The SLI-100 is one of the most exotic integrated stereo audio amplifiers available. Within its power range, the SLI-100 displays the operating characteristics of a true "high-end" amplifier. Careful design, parts selection and proper circuit topologies contribute to incredible reliability and enjoyment. The SLI-100 integrated stereo amplifier operates in a Class AB1 mode utilizing a negative fixed bias supply. The KT150 output tubes are configured in push-pull and yield 100 watts/channel of output power. The output transformers in the SLI-100 are the most important component in the amplifier and have been specifically designed by Cary Audio for use in the SLI-100. Negative feedback is derived from the 8 ohm tap on the output transformer secondary. This feedback circuitry is used to reduce the noise floor and improve the speaker damping characteristics. Only 4 dB of feedback is utilized. The phase inverter is a self-balancing split load configuration utilizing the 6SN7 octal base dual triode. The preamplifier circuit is a Series Regulated Push-Pull (SRPP) Class A triode voltage amplification stage direct coupled to the phase inverter. The power supply in the SLI-100 features a 200% duty cycle EI laminate power transformer.

    Another feature of the SLI-100, aside from how compact and gorgeous it looks, is the delightful, sensual beauty of the music it recreates. The first thing that will strike you about the SLI-100 integrated amplifier is the incredible transparency and resolution of detail in the music. The SLI-100's sensual nature is best revealed in the sense of life it displays in female vocalists. The SLI-100 integrated amplifier presents music with such presence and directness, you'll be drawn into the music hour after musically satisfying hour. This is the result of circuit techniques, which eliminate any discernible crossover notch at low levels, and also contributes to the freedom from listening fatigue. The SLI-100 will draw you in even further as you realize how lucid and utterly uncolored neutrality reveals delicate nuances in the sound stage.

    The SLI-100 comes standard with a removable cage cover.

  • CAD-300SEI

    Tube aficionados have long known that the best possible realism and detail comes when an amplifier is run in SET mode, or Single-Ended Triode. This lets one power tube handle both sides of each musical waveform, eliminating some of the most fatiguing distortions. It results in lower output power, naturally, but with high-efficiency speakers played at reasonable levels, its ultimate simplicity means the ultimate in musical naturalness.

    While only offering 15 watts per channel of pure class-A remote-controlled power, the CAD-300SEI does things that almost no other amplifier today can achieve. Its careful attention to design and construction means that it is extremely quiet, allowing the tiniest musical details to float against a background of dead silence. This will help you perceive more accurate soundstaging and imaging cues, as well as the most realistic harmonic structure of each instrument. You can tell a Steinway from a Bösendorfer piano, a Stradivarius from a Guarneri or Amati violin, or a Fender from a Gibson guitar. You’ll hear inner details of musical groups that you never knew were there. Sometimes the simplest IS the best, and the CAD-300SEI is a testament to that philosophy.
