Fully Balanced, All-Tube Design Offers Analog Bliss
With VK-P90, you get an all-tube zero-feedback design that combines the benefits of balanced operation with complementary vacuum-tube current sources. Its dual-mono construction and enormous energy reserves are matched by extensive cartridge-loading flexibility. The first gain stage achieves a very low noise floor via premium Vishay bulk foil resistors that replace metal film resistors in critical areas. An upgraded power supply joins the transformer-coupled output stage in contributing to immersive transparency and responsive, visceral bass. Vacuum- tube current sources further improve the linearity and produce a wide-open, textured sound. In addition, a differential RIAA network ensures all your records will sound the way the recording engineer intended, all the while permitting ease of adjustment and improved common-mode noise rejection. Plus, the VK-P90’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, no signal is too small. Analog bliss awaits.
