Feb 5, 2016
I'm selling my Cary Audio SLI-80 which is in near mint condition available with all accessories down to the original box and remote. Very sparingly used in an air-conditioned listening room and in a child pets & smoke free environment.

Price : Rs 2.25 Lacs

For many, 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. Before we gloat about the sound of the SLI-80, just look at it. It’s audio jewelry. The open chassis showcasing the warm soft glow of the tubes only enhances its sonic beauty. It is a display piece for any setting, pure and simple.
The sound must be heard to be fully appreciated. As the world’s premier vacuum tube audio company, Cary Audio designed the SLI-80 to have no peer. The design reproduces every musical nuance and detail in a lush, open and airy presentation while providing bass texture and impact that belies its rated power output. 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 ultralinear 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 ultralinear mode and enjoy the extra power and dynamics. Your choice!
