|The advertising from Cary, when the SLI-30 came out (ca. 1993).|
|The SLI-30 is not an optical design master piece, but it's a wonderful sounding amp.|
|It seems there was a black edition too.|
|Or is this a custom version? The pictures from the black version are from a french audio forum.|
|Inside view of a SLI-30 equipped with La Radiotechnique E84L output tubes (7320, Siemens Halske made) and a pair of Sylvania 12AD7 input tubes on the left.
It is also possible to plug 7189 output tubes into this amplifier, which gives about 4W more power per channel. A comparison of the different output tubes can be found on oldtube.com
|The 7320 are slightly longer than standard EL84, so the cover needs to be lifted a few milimeters. Ok, this can't be seen on the picture, but it's worth mentioning.|
|There was also a preamplifier SLP-30 in a similar housing.|
