Audio Research VT80SE Power Amplifier

$17,000.00

Free Delivery in NZ
for orders over $100 or $5 under $100.

Product Description

The VT80SE expands on the phenomenal performance of the original VT80 with the addition of KT150 tubes instead of KT120. The KT150 improves on sound quality and life span, unparalleled at 3000 hours.
The auto-biasing capability of the VT80SE allows for the use of other tube models also; KT120, KT88 and the 6550.

What sonic improvements will you hear with the VT80SE? As Audio Research's Warren Gehl said, “More music!” Tonal color, detail, dynamic swing and clarity are all improved, along with a bigger and more robust presentation. The music gets better, in every way.

Specifications


POWER OUTPUT
75 watts per channel continuous from 20Hz to 20kHz. 1kHz total harmonic distortion typically 1% at 75 watts, below 0.05% at 1 watt. (Note that actual power output is dependent upon both line voltage and ‘condition’ i. e.: if power line has high distortion, maximum power will be affected adversely, although from a listening standpoint this is not very critical.)

(-3dB points) 7Hz to 60kHz.

FREQUENCY RESPONSE
(-3dB points at 1 watt) 0.7Hz to 80kHz.

INPUT SENSITIVITY
1.4V RMS BAL for rated output. (25dB Bal gain into 8 ohms.)
