VTL

VTL S200 Power Amp

Description

The S-200 Signature Stereo Amplifier is the result of audio technology that VTL have spent years developing. An essential feature of VTL’s prestigious Signature series, the S-200 embodies many of the flawless capabilities of its larger counterpart, the MB-450. Featuring excellent mid-bass authority and control, effortless mid-range and top end intricate timbres and very low noise floor, the S-200 uses revolutionary space-saving technology to fit this all in a small single chassis design.

The agility of this amplifier is particularly impressive, able to drive a wide range of speakers whilst maintaining the tonal stability and audio integrity that makes this speaker so impressive. Innovative engineering, comprehensive research and development, quality parts and balanced design make the S-200 an exceptional and unprecedented amplifier for its price range.

Specification

  • Fully balanced differential circuit – even single-ended signal produces balanced signal at output
  • Fully balanced differential input and driver stages for increased signal swing, bandwidth and stability
  • Zero global Negative Feedback
  • Shorter, faster feedback loop for greater tonal control without phase shift
  • Superior handling of loudspeaker loads for greater signal stability
  • The amplifier is unconditionally stable, without the need for capacitor compensation
  • Tube-like JFET type current source maintains sonic integrity in single-ended mode
  • Lower impedance output stage for improved loudspeaker control
  • Proprietary designed interleaving and coupling in the balanced VTL Signature output transformer, for wider bandwidth and zero ringing
  • Variable user-adjustable DF feedback control to vary output impedance and damping factor for optimal matching to speaker load
  • Software microprocessor controlled
    • Tetrode/Triode Switchable
    • Auto Bias, Fault Sensing
    • Current in-rush limiting
    • Standby Mute function; with reduced tube current for increased tube life
  • 200 watts per channel in tetrode; 100 watts per channel in triode
  • Uses eight 6550 or KT-88 tubes
  • Adjustable regulated screen supply for stable operating point; discrete regulated input and driver supply for greater signal resolution and tonality
  • Adjustable precision-regulated bias supply for greater signal resolution and noise rejection and improved isolation from mains supply variations; output operating point does not change with AC power fluctuations
  • Autobias and fault sensing system to operate in fully balanced differential mode; amplifier is fully protected against output tube failure; no need for precision matching of output tubes
  • Film bypass of power supply caps for greater HF resolution
  • Extruded aluminum front panel with luxurious, modern look – black and silver options available
  • Rack mountable
  • Rigid construction and improved ventilation for lower operating temperature
