Balanced Audio Technology – VK-P10SE Tube Phono Preamplifier
SERIOUS ENHANCEMENTS RESULT IN SERIOUS SOUND A Special Edition version of BAT’s renowned VK-P10 phonostage, the VK-P10SE incorporates numerous engineering improvements to offer greater information retrieval and supreme musical presentation. The first gain stage is completely revised to provide a substantially lower noise floor. In addition, the reconfigured output stage incorporates four high-gain 6C45 tubes. They provide high-current and low-output impedance, establishing a superb level of drive and transparency. These enhancements result in a phonostage with improved silence in the quietest musical passages, unfettered dynamic ease, and grand sense of scale. Fully balanced, the VK-P10SE achieves the best-possible performance when the phono cartridge is used in a matching balanced configuration. UPGRADED POWER SUPPLY, EXTENSIVE FLEXIBILITY, DUAL SIX-PAKs The VK-P10SE boasts an all-tube zero-feedback design that combines the benefits of balanced operation with complementary vacuum-tube current sources. Dual-mono construction and enormous energy reserves are matched by extensive flexibility in cartridge loading. The first gain stage achieves a very low noise floor via premium Vishay Bulk FoilTM resistors that replace metal film resistors in critical areas. An upgraded power supply and dual SIX-PAKs of paper-in-oil output capacitors contribute more responsive, visceral bass. Vacuum-tube current sources further improve the linearity and yield a more open, textured sound. Here, dual 6SN7 vacuum tubes act as current sources for the second gain stage. FLYING RIAA NETWORK MEANS YOU HEAR LPs AS THE RECORDING ENGINEER INTENDED The VK-P10SE employs a differential RIAA network, permitting ease of adjustment and improved common mode noise rejection. Completely passive, this circuit has fewer components than a more traditional implementation. Such benefits translate into improved matching of the RIAA curve to specification. With the Flying RIAA network, you can be assured that all of your records sound the way that the recording engineer intended. And the VK-P10SE’s second-generation step-up transformers provide as much as a 20db improvement in signal-to-noise ratio in comparison to direct mode operation. With up to 80dB of gain available, there is no signal too small. Analog bliss awaits.
VPI – 19 MKIII black w/ Eminent Technology II arm & Benz Ruby H cartridge
This is a VPI 19 MK III with cover in black. The arm is an Eminent Technology II Linear tracking arm. It comes with the arm board, record clamp and silicon glide bath tray. It has the large air tank, commercial pump and tubing w/filter. The Cartridge is a Benz Micro Ruby H with low hours and sounds great.
