I have used both extensively, the CA-9 is a bit better sounding, but the 7001 has some real issues..we had 7001 power supplies fail to the point that 110 volts went to pin one of the input jack....NONE of the 7001's we had were ever quiet...with the gain pots all the way down and not connected to anything else, the amp still put out a very low level buzz. Not the power, not the location. Stick with the CA-9. Tim
