Conrad Johnson CT6 Composite Triode Stereo Preamplifier
Introduction Conrad Johnson is one of most well-known and respected names in the world of tubed audio gear. The CT6 preamplifier reviewed here is the result of trickle-down technology from the company’s famous ACT preamplifier, which itself descends from the legendary ART preamplifier. At $5,000, it is roughly a third of the price of the current ACT II preamplifier that shares its composite triode circuit design. For those of you interested in a technical description of this circuit, I recommend a look at the Conrad Johnson website, which provides more information on this circuit design. The Upside Turning on the CT6, I was surprised by the long wait for the unit to warm up, during which no control input is accepted.  I quickly learned to simply leave the unit on and muted in between a day’s listening sessions.

Composite Products CF-1000 Wide Rack
The Composite CF-1000 Wide Rack is a 60-inch-wide anti-vibration rack designed to house all your audio and video components. Designed to be used as a standalone rack or as a bridge between two of Composite’s CF-1000 shelving systems, this set-up offers thick acrylic shelving supported by carbon fiber legs to absorb vibration, maximizing the look and sound of your AV system. Like all composite stands, its modular design allows for great flexibility with your room and set-up, making the rack easily work for simple to elaborate systems. Shelves are purchased as top ($3,150), bottom ($2,925) and middle ($2,700), or you can mix and match the standard-width CF-1000 shelves as you see fit.  The carbon fiber legs come from six to nine inches and can be made longer by special order. The one-inch-thick shelves are plenty stiff and offer dampening, while the ...

Composite Products CF-1000 Anti-Vibration Rack
The Composite CF-1000 Anti-Vibration rack comes with acrylic or carbon on acrylic shelves. Three carbon fiber legs on each shelf assure a stable platform for your gear, while all that carbon fiber holds it securely and helps to soak up vibration. The racks can be customized and you can have either or both shelving materials, depending on your wants and tastes. Racks come as top, bottom and middle shelves with up to five shelf systems and can be expanded for taller systems. The carbon fiber legs determine the distance between shelves and come from six to 11 inches as a standard order, or taller by custom order. These solidly-built racks offer a large platform. The shelves are one inch thick to minimize vibration, give a solid base to your gear and can be upgraded to carbon fiber over acrylic for ...

Classé CDP-202 CD Player
Introduction Believe it or not, the market for high-end CD players is alive and well. Despite the introduction of new high-end formats such as DVD-Audio, SACD and now HD-DVD and Blu-ray, the fact remains that there is more music available on CD than on all the new high-resolution formats combined. The music lovers who have a large collection of music on CD still need high-quality players in order to fully enjoy the music that they have spent so many years amassing. The CDP-202 ($6,500) is the latest and greatest of the stereo-only “CD player” options in Classé’s Delta series of products. The Delta Series is the first new product series from Classé Audio since Classé became part of the B&W group. I place CD player in quotes when describing the CDP-202, as it will actually play just about any non-high-definition disc format other than SACD. The new Delta Series CD player screamed “well-made high-end ...

Classé CA-5200 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Classé has thrown the gauntlet down in the multi-channel amplification arena by introducing the CA-5200, a five-channel, 200-watt-per-channel amplifier whose sole intention is to raise the bar high enough in both aesthetics and sound to make everyone swoon, from the design-oriented to the hardcore audiophile. One look at the CA-5200, even unplugged or without a preamp, and you’d be hard pressed to suggest Classé hasn’t accomplished at least half of its mission. The CA-5200’s sleek lines and nontraditional metal work beautifully matches the stealthy pose of the lauded Classé CDP-300 DVD player and the SSP-600 AV preamp. The size and stature of the CA-5200 is certainly a head turner, with heat sinks on either side of what appears to be a solid block of aluminum, refined to a blended front face with large rounded corners asymmetrically bisected by a vertical black anodized aluminum panel that is consistent with the rest of the Delta product ...
