Features – S200

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
    • Rack mountable
    • Rigid construction and improved ventilation for lower operating temperature
