Cary Audio Design

Cary Audio Design is a company founded in May 1989 which originally designed and manufactured vacuum tube audio amplifiers. Since the mid-1990s they have expanded into the home theater market, producing DVD players and surround sound processors in addition to their original vacuum tube designs.

The company is notable as one of the few U.S. manufacturers of vacuum tube amplifiers. Many of their high-end "Classic Series" designs have received favorable reviews in audiophile publications, including The Absolute Sound, Stereophile and Soundstage!. Their CAD280 SE V12 stereo amplifier received a CES 2001 "Best of Show" designation from reviewer Jim Saxon.

Originally based in (and named after) Cary, North Carolina, Cary Audio Design's facilities are now located in the nearby town of Apex.

Famous quotes containing the words cary and/or design:

    The will is never free—it is always attached to an object, a purpose. It is simply the engine in the car—it can’t steer.
    —Joyce Cary (1888–1957)

    We find that Good and Evil happen alike to all Men on this Side of the Grave; and as the principle Design of Tragedy is to raise Commiseration and Terror in the Minds of the Audience, we shall defeat this great End, if we always make Virtue and Innocence happy and successful.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)
