Any idea of the manufacturer ?

Does anyone recognize this preamp and know what the manufacturers name is, there is no company branding on front or back, I am thinking home made, but it does show quality switches and connections in the rear panel.

Thnks

I did search that first and all that came up was a power amp they make with the CA-12 model which is all Pro equipment, this looks like home audio equipment, I also tried Cary Audio, but nothing!

I'm guessing it's home made, or at least built from a kit. Quality parts like switches and knobs are easy to get - you may not have been able to get it at radio shack back in the day, but people bought tons from mouser and Digi-Key among many other part suppliers. It was part of the fun and many designs included the exact part numbers you needed to order.
