In order to minimize cross-feeds and achieve a lower distortion factor, Vincent decided upon a consistent symmetric design for their new integrated amplifier. This stereo amplifier is in truth, made up of two isolated mono amplifiers. This enables a truer, more precise reproduction of your music or other media.
In the pre-amp stage, 3 tubes per channel work to the SRPP (Shunt Regulated Push-Pull) concept. This method processes the sound signals in a way that creates a more precise bass response and better performance in the mid and high ranges.
The characteristics of valve amplifiers have been known for a long time. Their sound has supporters in the world of hi-fi devices and performance amplifiers. Despite their popularity and the unique sound that comes with them, transistors are much more robust and durable as amplifier components. Even in audio source devices, there are amplifier circuits and with these too, the sound can be greatly improved by sophisticated amplifier circuitry. Today this approach is taken by only a few select manufacturers. Vincent is proudly one of these manufacturers.
In addition to the total of 6 tubes in the pre-amp stage, the large 6Z4 tube visible from the viewing port rounds off the rich "warm" sound that is lusted over in hi-fi audio.
Warm and smooth vacuum tube sound combined with transistor dynamics and power. The SV-700 delivers explosive performance as well as delicate sound experiences. At the heart of this all-round talent is two core driving forces that guided its development: Sound and enthusiasm.
A power amplifier that meets modern AV needs must be powerful yet delicate. Capable of reproducing everything from airy voice and acoustic instruments, to the strength and punch of a huge musical piece. The SV-700, with its trademark Vincent hybrid design, can create warm inviting tones across all dynamic levels.
The SV-700 boasts a nominal power delivery of 100 watts per channel at 8 ohms. This means that even with the most demanding of Hi-Fi speakers, this power amp can not only handle it, but will bring out your speakers' best potential. Whether you're playing dynamic orchestral arrangements, explosive film soundtracks or listening to music on CD or Vinyl, the SP-331 is the powerhouse your system deserves.
The 500 Watt power supply uses a toroidal transformer. The Panasonic capacitors can be supplied with power at any time by this one. Final amplification can be set to either Class A or AB operation by powerful Toshiba transistors. They work without any negative feedback or introduced noise in order to preserve the characteristic features of tube sound.
Designed with performance and aesthetic in mind, an elegant full aluminum chassis with enormous cooling fins on the sides are telling signs that the SV-700 can easily manage any sound amplification demand you throw at it.
The SV-700, faithful to the rest of Vincent's tubeLine range, features a round window on the front panel where you can see the vacuum tube in action. Switch the lamp on to make the tube glow with a warm light, giving your system an elegant appearance that is sure to impress before you even play anything through it.
The SV-700 is supplied with several inputs for a diverse range of sound sources. There are 4 analog inputs ( 3 RCA and 1 XLR) as well as 2 digital inputs (optical and coaxial).
For connection of recording devices and external amplifiers, a Rec-output a Pre-output are present.
The exclusive design is also further perfected by a matching aluminium remote control, which makes switching between the inputs and outputs easy.
The SV-700 is the perfect addition to your Hi-Fi setup.
Pair up this quality amplifier with a media player of your choice to experience a high-quality tube and solid state sound.
