For many years the SLI-80 integrated amplifier has represented Cary Audio's least expensive entry into the magic of tube music systems. Thousands of satisfied music lovers have used the SLI-80 with all types of other equipment, and just continue to use it after the rest of their systems change. It features three pairs of RCA single-ended inputs, a pair of preamplifier outputs to use it for biamping or adding a powered subwoofer, a switchable headphone amplifier, and a remote control to adjust volume or mute the sound. The amplifier section of the SLI-80 has a feature allowing you to decide how to configure the tubes on the fly, depending on your musical tastes of the moment, your speakers, and how loudly you want to listen. A pair of toggle switches will 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, select triode mode for the most lifelike imaging and tonal accuracy. If you want to really let loose, switch to ultra linear mode and enjoy the extra power and dynamics. Your choice!
