High quality tube components from this
German manufacturer include the new
SV-237MKClass A 150 watt Hybrid
Integrated amp with on-board DAC. The
SV-237MK replaces the very highly reviewed
SV-236 MK Hybrid Integrated Amp, our most
popular integrated amp in a long time. An upgraded design
for even better performance, plus a USB DAC.
Vincent does things a little different: defeatable tone
controls on their SV-237MK and their other
Integrated Amps and PreAmps, and HDCD and variable outputs
on many of their CD Players, including the new CD-S1.2.
The SV-237MK also has a metal remote, preamp
output, and two sets of speaker binding posts. At 42 pounds
the SV-237MK is a big amp with a big sound
and plenty of finesse. From the i-fidelity.net
review: "The Vincent SV-237 is
the only amplifier in its price range with nothing to complain
about soundwise or with any loudspeakers. It unfolds an
astonishing spaciousness, follows every howsoever small
or big dynamic jump with no delay and shows off voices and
natural instruments in an unaffected manner."

Robert Harley of The Absolute Sound said the SV-236MKwas
the greatest value at CES 2006, and Barry Willis of TAS
said in his glowing review, "A beauty...a winner..."
and was impressed by "its sheer effortless power and
Michael Fremer's rave
review in the April 2009 Stereophile. "The
Vincent SV-236 MK brings real high performance
sound to the real-world audio enthusiast at a real-world
price." A Stereophile Recommended Component.
PHO-701 is a Hybrid tube/solid state MM/MC
dual chassis phono preamp with a 12AU7 on display.
The SP-331 was The
Absolute Sound's Editor's Choice Award winner for 2008,
and their Amplifier of the Year 2007! The companion SA-31
Hybrid Preamp was also an Absolute Sound's Editor's
Choice winner for 2008, and is only $699. Why change success!
The upgraded SP-331MK and SA-31MK
are also TAS favorites. Check the review.
The SP331MK is biased into Class A and
the SA-31MK has a remote. A nice pair!
The PHO-8 dual chassis
MM/MC phono preamp is the sleeper in the Vincent line. For
under $400 you get adjustable gain and impedance and a matching
outboard power supply. No wall wart here. Maybe that's why
it sounds so good. Hear why The Absolute Sound
calls it "A $400 Miracle."
