CP-65 Power Supply Front


The NEW CP-65 is a no-holds-barred approach to preamplifier design. Its exceptionally quiet, oversized toroidal transformer and main supply are housed in a separate enclosure. The outboard power supply's ultra-stable output is then fed into several stages of regulation, which, like our poweramplifiers, use numerous high quality small capacitors for the supplies' filtering stages. The result is an extremely clean, fast and stable power supply that easily follows the rapidly changing energy demands of music. The CP-65 has a lightening-quick response on transients, while providing fabulous dynamics coupled with a more detailed, natural sound. 

Microphonics has been a problem that has plagued designers since the beginning of recorded sound. Our circuit boards and component layouts are meticulously designed to eliminate all microphonic effects, and employ state-of-the-art discrete circuitry. 

Bl-POLAR, MOSFET, or J-FET? After years of painstaking research, we have developed a method of using all three types in a unique sequence that makes the most of their electrical and sonic characteristics. 

All Classé preamplifiers come with a remote control and very user-friendly features. The CP-65 comes standard with high-level inputs only. Build quality reflects the Classé look, feel and indivuality, from the elegant appearance to the solid, machined aluminum remote control.
