The CP-60 is a highly respected preamp for its spatial sound, well placed imaging and deep soundstage. Unlike the CP-50, the CP-60 has an outboard power supply which kept electrical interference away from the sensitive input/output boards. This made the background slightly darker and quieter than the CP-50. Compared to the Pass Labs X-1 (also priced under $2,000 now in our other listing) the CP-60 is slightly warmer but the X-1 is a bit better at detailing. Regardless, this is still one of the top choice preamp if you are shopping for a sub $2000 preamp. And if you want a matching Classe amp, see our other listing for the Classe Twenty Five poweramp for a sub-$4,000 killer amplification system.
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We don’t have the original remote but will include a programmed Logitech Harmony 650 that will work with it. Unit will be securely pack for safe shipping.
