Audio Research VT200 Stereo Audiophile Tube Amplifier w Manual, Low hours on the tubes (<1000) Excellent condition! This amp sounds great! Fantastic reviews are everywhere on the internet. This was once a state-of-the-art amplifier and still produces the same state-of-the-art sound! This amplifier sold briskly at $9,995 in its day. I have graduated to Audio Research's $44,000 state-of-the-art amplifiers. Crazy? Yes! Especially because the sound is not much different than this VT200. You will absolutely love this amp. I cannot find any scratches or dents at all. It looks brand new. It will not ship in the original box as I have not found the box yet, but if I do I will ship it to you. This bad boy weighs 118 lb so I have made local pickup a possibility for you in addition to offering the lowest price shipping I could find. Sorry the pictures aren't that good...it's in a very dark room and my flash is not producing very good pictures. Rest assured, the amp is in beautiful condition!
Bid with confidence as my feedback is as good as it gets. Please contact me regarding any damage during shipping or if you feel the item does not match my description. Thank you
If you are reading about this you probably know all the details but here are the specifications:
VT200 power amplifier: dual-mono tubed power amplifier with ultralinear output stage. Tube complement: eight 6550C in matched pairs, ten 6922 (six driver, four input). Output power: 200Wpc continuous into 8 ohms (23dBW), 20Hz-20kHz. THD @ 1kHz: typically 1% @ 200W, <0.01% @ 1W. Power bandwidth: 12Hz–120kHz, -3dB. Frequency response: 0.5Hz–200kHz, -3dB @ 1W. Input sensitivity: 2.5V RMS, balanced or single-ended (27dB gain into 16 ohms). Input impedance: 200k ohms balanced, 100k ohms single-ended. Output taps: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 ohms. Output regulation: approximately 0.8dB with 16 ohm load to open circuit (damping factor approximately 11). Overall negative feedback: 10dB. Slew rate: 25V/µs. Rise time: 1.5µs.
