BestPentode Tube

The SA-T7 stereo preamplifier has many selling points that make it a fine addition to your Hi-Fi system. The most notable of these is it's linear amplification method, which results in an extremely low level of noise introduced into the signal. Far lower than any other preamplifier in its range. This is achieved with VIncent's new valve technology.

The BestPentode device has a higher level of amplifying small noise than other triodes. This high-level grid pentode type CV6189 tube displays its whole potential. This tube is a new old stock (NOS) from storage that was used for amplifying high-frequency signals around the clock in telecommunication and has a guaranteed service life of 10,000 hours.

The impedance converter consists of a grid triode type 6S3P-EV. A long life Russian military-grade vacuum tube that was used in a MIG's airborne radar. The noiseless power supply connectors of the BestPentode device provides for an extremely pure audio transmission. Vincent developed their own module called Vimala (meaning in Sanskrit "pure, transparent and clear") for this purpose.

Adjustable

The SA-T7's front panel features gain and tone-control options that allow you to make fine adjustments to the sound of your source material before it even hits the main amplifier. Make tone adjustments with the treble and bass dials on the front of the unit. Deactivating the Tone switch on the front of the unit bypasses these controls, giving you an easy method of listening direct, so you can choose to hear your source material with or without adjustments.

Connection Options

The SA-T7 includes connections for a wide range of audio sources, accepting both analog sources via the 6 stereo RCA inputs, and digital sources via the Optical and Digital Coax inputs. The digital inputs let you enjoy two-channel audio from Blu-ray players, streaming devices, set-top boxes, CD players, etc. Inside the SA-T7 is a PCM 5100-based DAC providing 24-bit/192 kHz performance, so your digital content is reproduced correctly in top-notch analogue format.

In addition to this on the output side, the SA-T7 offers two stereo RCA-type preamp outputs along with one stereo RCA-type 'Record' out.
