Cary Audio - SLP-98 preamplifier with phono stage (SLP-98L & SLP-98P)



Cary Audio has offered this preamplifier and its predecessors for over 20 years, and it is still as musically satisfying today as it was then. Continuing to be hand-built and hand-wired in North Carolina, and utilizing matched tubes and zero feedback for the most accurate musical presentation. What’s more, the SLP-98 uses an external power supply and enclosure, like its big brother the SLP-05, to keep any high voltage electrical noise away from the circuits that handle the delicate musical reproduction.

With five inputs, the SLP-98 can manage an elaborate system, and gives you the convenience of remote volume control. With turntables and vinyl making a big comeback, we even offer an optional built-in phono stage for MM cartridges, truly making it a value for its level of performance (model SLP-98P with phono stage, SLP-98L as a line-stage only). Regardless of whether you listen to vinyl records, tape, CDs, or any of today’s digital sources, the SLP-98 will elevate your sources to levels you didn’t think were possible.
