Two amplifier sections — pre-amplifier and power amplifier — are matched for maximum transparency. However, the listener can bypass the pre-amp/amp connection by removing external jumpers, allowing for an external digital signal processor (DSP) for room correction.
According to the company, among the many reasons the SV-737 hybrid integrated amplifier stands out in a crowded market is its advanced Wi-Fi port. Connection to a home network is efficient, giving consumers easy access to their favorite high-resolution music streaming services and files stored on a NAS drive. Playable digital formats include WAV, FLAC, APE, LPCM, MP3, ACC, AC3, and WMA.
Options for wired connections include six pairs of analog RCA inputs, two optical inputs, two coaxial inputs, and one stereo main input, making it future-resistant as users’ systems evolve over time.
Vincent Audio’s SV-737 integrated amplifier’s hybrid design offers the rich, natural-sounding audio associated with vacuum tubes while providing the power and control of solid-state electronics. The SV-737 is up to date with a DAC that handles the latest high-resolution streaming formats, including WAV, FLAC, AIFF, APE, and more.
On a par with the onboard analog and digital circuitry is a power supply that features Elco capacitors for buffering to keep the electrical current clean and noise-free.
