Classe CP-35 Solid State Preamp, Complete with Box and Remote

$1,499

Excellent preamp both in quality and in today's value from Classe.

High-end & high-quality balanced XLR inputs and outputs, RCA unbalanced inputs and outputs, and IR In/Out capability to control your other Classe gear.

We appreciate the front panel physical mute button directly next to the solid-feeling volume control knob, rounded out by the cleanly laid out and functional source selection controls.

The remote is ridiculous, machined from solid aluminum and could kill someone if used in anger. 

The faceplate is in nice condition, the top and top rear have a few scuffs and light scratches.  Overall very presentable.  Bench tested in our lab and passed with flying colors.  

This listing is a complete package including the power cord, original box, manual, and remote.  Its previous owner obviously took care of it and it shows by keeping all of these original bits and pieces together with the preamp.  

More details on this preamp from Classe:

"All Classé preamplifiers share a common, unique design. We begin with an exceptionally quiet, shielded toroidal transformer that is designed to minimize magnetic fields. Its ultra stable output is then fed into several stages of regulation, which, like our power amplifiers, use numerous high quality small capacitors for the supplies' filtering stages. The result is an extremely clean, fast and stable power supply that easily follows the rapidly changing energy demands of music. The end result is a lightening quick response on transients, while providing fabulous dynamics coupled with a more detailed, natural sound.

Microphonics has been a problem that has plagued designers since the beginning of recorded sound. Our circuit boards and component layouts are meticulously designed to eliminate all microphonic effects, and employ state-of-the-art discrete circuitry. Additionally, the CP-35 is fully remote controlled; you may select input source with the wand, as well as mute or change the volume.

Bl-POLAR, MOSFET, OR J- FET? After years of painstaking research, we have developed a method of using all three types in a unique sequence that makes the most of their electrical and sonic characteristics.

All Classé preamplifiers come with a remote control and very user-friendly features. The CP-35 with four high-level inputs and tape loop, a balanced input and output also come as standard features.

Build quality is exemplary, from the ultra-thick circuit boards to the solid, machined aluminum remote control. Finally, the elegant appearance and functional layout are hallmarks of the Classé look, feel and individuality."
