Power Amplifiers are required for turning the voltage signal into current to drive the loudspeaker. The function and interface of the power amplifier to the loudspeaker is potentially much more complex than that of the preamplifier, as it involves more interaction considerations that change under dynamic conditions. Loudspeakers often change their characteristics with changes in volume and/or frequency, and the matching of the power amplifier to the loudspeaker load is therefore critical.
Monoblocks offer ultimate channel separation, and can be placed closer to the loudspeakers for minimal current loss through the loudspeaker cables, and minimal interference between power amplifier and source components. VTL Monoblocks can also be purchased in single units, for use in multi-channel systems.
The latest revisions to the VTL monoblock series bring substantial improvements to the technical and musical performance, cementing VTL’s position as the world leader in hi-end amplification. Experience the VTL sound to hear for yourself why these amplifiers have won so many ‘Best sound of Show’ awards, and why you need VTL in your music system.
Pre-Amplifiers The preamplifier functions to select the desired source component, and to provide the user with a volume control with which to be able to vary the sound level of the whole system. Preamplifiers are required for amplifying the small source signal sufficiently and providing the instant current to be able to properly drive a power amplifier. The consideration of this component is critical, as it is usually the component to have the greatest effect on the source signal.
The VTL Preamplifiers are designed to deliver outstanding performance driving long interconnect cables and low impedance power amplifiers. The VTL preamplifiers offer superior sonic performance, intuitive user interface and many other features. Our preamplifiers are also ideally suited for first-time tube users, as they require little to no maintenance.
For devotees of analog/vinyl reproduction, VTL offers two models of phono stages, both offering users flexibility, ease of use, and outstanding sound.
Phono Pre-Amplifiers The TP-2.5 Series II phono stage represents tremendous value for those looking to assemble a high resolution system at a reasonable cost. The technology used is trickled down from VTL’s top phono stage, the Signature TP-6.5. Delivering a large measure of the musicality and resolution of its much more expensive stablemate, the (new for 2013) TP-2.5 II offers dramatic improvements in speed, delicacy, nuance and drive. For analog connoisseurs who demand the absolute best in analog reproduction and who value the flexibility of changing load and gain on the fly, the TP6.5 Signature Phono is the must-have analog component.
