The CAD 120S MKII is rated at 60 watts per channel in triode mode, and 120 watts per channel in ultralinear mode into an 8 ohm speaker load. Frequency response is from 17 Hz to 23 kHz with less than 1% total harmonic distortion. The output stage may be switched 'on the fly' from triode mode to ultralinear mode by using a front panel selector button. Backlit front panel meters indicate the circuit bias setting for each channel and visually indicate proper operation of the CAD 120S MKII amplifier.

The vacuum tubes in each channel consist of one (1) 6SN7 for the input stage, one (1) 6SN7 for the driver stage and four (4) KT 88 output power tubes. The circuit is a pure balanced design with separate RCA and XLR inputs. A soft start turn-on circuit is built in for tube life and turn on in large systems. The power supply features 1,120uF of capacitance for reserves in demanding usages.

The CAD 120S MKII comes with a silver anodized aluminum front panel; black is optional. The chassis and transformer cover are painted using automotive finishes in a Jaguar Anthracite black with clear coat.
