    Classic Classé

    Classic Classé

    I feel like such an old-timer.

    I still have and use the CP-50 preamp and the CA-200 power amp from the late 90's.

    I still love them and they still work flawlessly.

    Maybe someday I'll upgrade. Then again, maybe not.

    The CA series were never considered classics , the DR series under Reich are considered classic Classe amps.
