Stax Cax-Pro Preamp

Recommended Posts

Howdy folks

Glad to finally join. And yes I'm from Perth and...I can be a bit shy.

Had a question to ask. I have the following system:

Speakers: Wilson WP8

Amp: Bryston 4B Cubed

Pre Amp: Stax CAX-Pro

CD: Bryston BDP-1

T/T: Rega RP 10

FM Tuner Eumig T-1000

Cables and interconnects from Gary Cawsey (Awesome gear) 


My question is, have preamps improved much over the last decade or two? Whilst I love my Stax preamp I'm not sure if I don't know what I don't know. Am I deluded in thinking this amp is the bees knees or are there other Stax Preamp owners that would say there are far better preamps than the Stax Cax- Pro

Hi Arthur . I  have one of those amps . I have modded mine  and the improvement is substantial .

    Unmodded  still very good . 

 I used many rare and exotic (very expensive ) capacitors  etc

   Now sound  as good as anything I can think of. 

  The power supplies are a tour de force.  An amazing  base for a rebuild or mod .
