CAV45 - What Speaker Are You Using

Post by jahatl513 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 10:33 am

Hello All,
I have had large tube power from Premier 140 c1 and large SS power from Premier 350 and more. There are times I am fascinated with the idea of a CAV45 which always seems to bring high praise to low watts.

My question at the moment about the CAV45 is, what speaker set up are CAV45 owners using? Please enlighten me. Thanks!

Hola jahatl513,
The output tubes EL34/6CA7 makes the sound quality to be very mellow. This tube produces a very sweet sound and of course, the quality sound of all CJ products. But having only 45 watts/channel we think that this power is too low, and I assure you that it will drive easy most all speakers on the market place today. I have long time ago, the MV-50 along with the first Martin Logan CLSs and had no issues regarding power. Yes, it did play a pleasant level. The good thing about this wonder CAV-45, is the simple design of the circuit.

You can use any brand of speakers having less than 88 dB/2.83V/ meter of sensitivity ...there are many high end speakers with more sensitivity and you will get enough SPL with this wonderful integrated.

If you do a google search, you will read about this fantastic integrated amp, the same enthusiasm about the quality sound and construction design. You can´t go wrong with it!. Highly recommended.
Happy listening!
