VTL 6.5 Pre-Amplifier

Audio circuit features

  • Fully balanced differential circuit with balanced in and out, and mirror-image layout
  • Simple 2-stage circuit topology with differential gain stage and output buffers for musical purity and integrity
  • Ultra low impedance output stage to drive any length of cable and any power amplifier/paralleled amplifier/subwoofer load
  • 20 microfarad output capacitors for powerful bass control
  • Tube complement: 2 x 12AU7/ECC82 tubes
  • Gain switching between normal gain and low gain with 6dB gain reduction
  • Single fully balanced differential 95-step 70dB discrete resistor relay attenuator for all attenuation functions

Control and power supply features

  • Precision regulation
  • Ramped B+ filament soft-start power up for extended tube life
  • Huge energy storage power supply for elimination of AC fluctuation and noise rejection
  • Low noise processor control design for all functions

User interface features

  • Processor loop – any of 8 inputs can be assigned as fixed unity gain pass through
  • Tape monitor function for both tape loops
  • 2 separately programmable trigger outputs
  • Bi-directional RS-232 interface
  • Programmable input offsets
  • Rigid Combination steel and non-magnetic chassis and machined aluminum remote wand

Additional features

  • New FET device output stage for more tube-like sound and simpler bias circuit
  • Improved current source for improved musicality and better single-ended operation
  • Zero Global NFB for vastly improved faster dynamic and tonal resolution, and unconditionally stable circuit, without any phase shift.
  • All audiophile grade capacitors in signal path with bypass system for improved HF resolution
  • Vastly improved lower impact and greater precision-regulated current-sourced shunt power supply
  • Teflon power supply bypass caps for improved top end
  • Microphonically damped tube gain stage for greater vibration noise elimination
