S-200 Stereo Power Amplifier 
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.
