SLP-98P Preamplifier


Cary Audio has offered this preamplifier and its predecessors for over 20 years, and it is still as musically satisfying today as it was then. Continuing to be hand-built and hand-wired in North Carolina, and utilizing matched tubes and zero feedback for the most accurate musical presentation. What’s more, the SLP-98 uses an external power supply and enclosure, like its big brother the SLP-05, to keep any high voltage electrical noise away from the circuits that handle the delicate musical reproduction.

With five inputs, the SLP-98 can manage an elaborate system, and gives you the convenience of remote volume control. With turntables and vinyl making a big comeback, we even offer an optional built-in phono stage for MM cartridges, truly making it a value for its level of performance (model SLP-98P with phono stage, SLP-98L as a line-stage only). Regardless of whether you listen to vinyl records, tape, CDs, or any of today’s digital sources, the SLP-98 will elevate your sources to levels you didn’t think were possible.
