    Presently using a cx-800 recapped by avionic and was wondering if it would be better if I have my c-85 recapped and use as my main pre. Has anyone done a comparison on the c and cx series preamps. Thanks

    A remote control is sweet. But I would take a C-80/85 over it.

    I like to use the inverted and normal output simultaneously. The CX only has one pre-out. I need two pre-outs.

    Other than that. They are both sonically excellent control amplifiers.
