Cayin MT-12 N in the Test

Small tube amplifier exude a special charm. It is just mostly lacking complex performance. But often enough, one is amazed what conjure up a few tube Watts of a matching box sound culture.

The MT-12 N works in class A/B and uses in the base circuit variant a 12AX7, two 6N1 and four 6P1-end tubes in the push-pull operation. The 6P1 came early as a smaller offshoot of Russian 6P1P? in tube radios and TVs to use.

Cayin continues his seven dwarfs of the tubes in a noble material dress made of real wood, chrome and brass. After all, three analog inputs and a few Cayin MT-12 N 4 / 8 ohm speaker terminals in the small enclosure adapted.

Cayin MT-12 N: hearing test

With over nine tube Watts, it is now in the efficiency champion JBL 4365. Yellos “Oh Yeah” just shows a substantial difference to the Ayon Monos Vulcan II. In the low bass is finally spotted, unlike? r in the upper bass more nuanced and colored plucked. The whole keynote rangeis beautifully easy to grip, while the remaining frequency spectrum remains inconspicuous.

The essential figure makes: squirming synth basses are spreading in the listening room. On the JBL is the MT-12 Nu? surprisingly long time constant. When on track 2 “the expert” the votes-monologue begins and you to u? revs up about 40 percent of the volume, but a guttural note prevails. Also the phase effects on “The Race” are then washed away and the Klangbu? hne helping? bt a further.

A perfect pairing, however, is the combination with the Cabasse Bora. Now reactivated the Cayin also the lower frequencies and makes a mountain out of the former wasteland. No alpine landscapes, more of a gentle hills with wide views of the central plain. While the coax precisely sets the incoming flood of tubes in the soundscape. The brass knob moves until about noon, the image is enlarged constantly and as a listener you delves deeply into this framework. Drum beats not brachial deep set, but with toasty round kick. The small Cayin is a superb introduction to the magical world of tube tone.
