The VSi75 integrated amplifier
breaks new ground in an ‘all in one’ product design, and sets a new benchmark
in the lifelike reproduction of music. The VSi75 continues the design series of
‘open chassis’ products from Audio Research such as the VSi60 and VS115, yet
incorporates new developments from the Reference series product to combine in a
visually striking and sonically astonishing product.
The VSi75 springboards from the award-winning
VSi60 and takes the listener to new plateaus of musical enjoyment. While
similar in form to the ’60, the chassis has been reworked and refined to
reflect the industrial design for which Audio Research is known: the front
panel reflects those on full-size components, the perforated cover hearkens
back to earlier Audio Research products, and the chassis is a sealed,
monochromatic silver to match with the rest of the components. The front panel
sports a new LCD display which clearly displays input, volume and other
Performance-wise, the VSi75 is in an entirely different league for a number of
reasons. It has a new power transformer that was designed around the KT150
output tube. The VSi75’s wide bandwidth output transformers are the same as
those in the remarkable Reference 75, and we also incorporate some key REF75
parts including proprietary coupling caps. And, we doubled the bulk power
The resulting sound from these cumulative improvements is striking, with tremendous
resolution of detail, silky and extended highs, surprising weight and
authority, and the ability to develop an immense sound stage. The VSi75 sounds
very much like the amp from which it borrows, the REF75, with an immediacy,
delicacy and focus that are captivating. Couple it with a deserving source like
the REFCD9 for a euphoric experience.
