MSRP: $24,000.00 USD
Perfectionist simplified and optimized circuitry allows the sound of the tubes themselves to emerge with unparalleled transparency―the meaning of the proverbial “straight wire with gain.” Quite simply, the closest thing to no preamp at all, but with drive and authority which no passive can approach
"Personally, I feel as if my listening room has been graced by one of the best preamplifiers these ears have heard. It’s a true reference product and I tip my hat to Tsuda san and the team at Concert Fidelity. I have chosen The CF-080LSX2 preamplifeir as my 2011 “Most Wanted Component” of the year! Highly recommended!"
"There is no doubt in my mind that Masataka Tsuda’s designs push the state-of-the-art forward. His success lies in the potent combination of a minimalist, Zen-like design philosophy and perfectionist execution focused on parts-quality and circuit layout. The end result is a fantastic amalgam of textural purity, emotional expressiveness, and tonal color accuracy. Voltaire’s declaration that the best is the enemy of the good is very much apropos in this context. Once experienced, it is hard to return to and enjoy an ordinary preamp. Concert Fidelity will re-calibrate your sonic expectations.
"I cannot imagine life without the Concert Fidelity CF-080 line preamplifier. It is the best of the best; king of the hill, and it gives me great pleasure to declare the CF-080 as my new reference." - Dick Olsher, Enjoy The Music
