Cary Audio is company probably better known for their SET (single-ended triode) power amplifiers and vacuum tube pre amplifiers (and lately, some remarkably fine sounding CD players). But it seems Cary wants to be considered in the highly competitive home theater market as well, releasing a line of DVD players, processors/preamplifiers and multi-channel power amplifiers.
The Cary Cinema 6 is the latest surround processor/preamplifier from Cary, and is currently the only AV pre/pro that Cary sells as it's older and bigger brother the Cinema 8 has recently been discontinued (although there are rumors of Cinema 11 and Cinema 9 coming out soon). The Cinema 6 has been a long time coming - originally announced during CES 2003, and announced again at CES 2004 with a promised shipment date of January 2004, the model was further delayed and initial units were not shipped until March 2004. But the delay has been worthwhile, for the Cinema 6 was one of the first pre/pros on the market that supports the Dolby Pro Logic IIx matrix decoding format, as well as DTS NEO:6 and DTS 96/24.
Pls add shipping/Paypal. Send to Cary Audio on May/Aug do some Mainboard repair and upgrade software, will include receipt. Thanks for looking.
