Teaching the Canaries To Sing

thumb_img_1054_1024

These two Canary CA303 mono blocks came in for re-biasing and an open-ended ‘could I do anything in terms of upgrades?’. Like a lot of high end American gear, the componentry is top notch, so there’s no easy wins in terms of upgrading capacitors, resistors, or rectifiers for example. But what I did do was to install a switch for the negative feedback. With feedback switched off, with my speakers, these amps really hit their stride, open up and become seriously dynamic performers.

Those with keen eyesight will notice an Audio Innovations 700, and an LFD integrated solid state amp, both of early 90s vintage I believe.
