    Default For Sale - Herron Audio VTSP-2 Vacuum Tube Stereo Pre Amp.

    DSCF7050.jpgThis beautiful American made valve pre amp. is for sale as I have decided to stick with my Sophia Electric integrated .

    I bought the pre from Elite Audio earlier this year and I believe I am its second owner, it comes fully boxed with manual and remote control and is in truly excellent condition . There is one small barely noticeable hairline scratch at the rear of the top plate, other than that it is in mint condition. This is the version 2 model.

    I have been really very impressed with the sound and build quality of this amplifier , so much so that I regard it as the best pre amp. I have ever owned and I've owned quite a few.
    Everything works as it should , it is very versatile and quite simply is an absolute joy to use and listen too.

    I think the new price was something like $4995 and looking at the Herron web site it seems that this model has recently been discontinued - I have no idea why. If you do a search on the internet there are many very favourable reviews to be found.

    It uses six 6922 dual triodes which are both easy to source and cheap to replace .

    Some more specs. as follows:

    multifunctional Remote Control

    volume level display 1-100

    Unity gain pass through function.

    Switchable absolute polarity.

    100 step electronic volume control.

    Balance control.

    Stereo/mono switch.

    Mute control.

    Display brightness control.

    Tape out/in loop.

    Low noise design.

    Automatic muting at start up and shutdown.

    Reversing power line polarity switch.

    Gain - 14db.

    Dimensions. 18" wide x 3.5" high x 10.5" deep.



    Looking for 1100 + postage at cost or preferably it can be collected from post code area LE15. DSCF7048.jpgAttachment 21743DSCF7046.jpgDSCF7047.jpg

    What a beauty can you see the valves through the window at the front?

    Nice idea but Mike is spot on , its just a display window for showing volume level etc.

    Looks a great piece of kit, good reviews too. I had my eye on it when it was up for sale at Elite Audio.

    Pity too far away for a demo.
