Description

Unit is in great shape, works perfectly with only a few small marks. I don’t have the original box or instructions but it's all easy to find the manual online.

The Nakamichi CA-5A II is an improved version, albeit more costly version, of the earlier CA-5 Control Amplifier (preamplifier). The changes include both additional control features and circuit modifications. Additional control features include defeatable tone controls, two-way tape dubbing facilities, and three selectable gain settings of 24db, 30db & 36db boosts for the Moving Coil phono cartridge input selection. Moving Magnet cartridges can be loaded with 100pf, 200pf, or 300pf.

The unit was designed by Nelson Pass & the phono stage designed by Nelson Pass and John Curl, whose designs are legendary and are much sought after. This unit's phono stage remains one of the best around, bettering many more expensive stand-alone phono preamps. Made in Japan.

The CA 5 offers separate moving magnet and moving coil amplification with the flip of a switch, with another switch to choose 3 different capacitive and inductive loads. This is serious phono preamp; if you're searching for a stand alone outboard phono preamp, unit upwards of $1000, the CA 5A II's phono section will more than likely have them all beat. It was said in Audiophile Review not long ago, that if this unit were manufactured today to the same specification and qc standards as when it was new, it would be a $3,000.00 + preamplifier!
