The SVP-2 (Six Valve Preamp) preamp is the end result of a 30 year development path by its builder to build a sonically ultimate unbalanced tube preamp. Read reviews of Vacuum State products, they're all top notch.
Review of the SVP2, by Roy Gregory (Hi-FI+): "Of course, there are plenty of (far more impressive looking) valve preamps out there, boasting lusciously warm tonal colours and thunderous dynamics. But the SVP-2 is in a class apart from the majority of them. Essentially neutral, it achieves a remarkable level of balance and musical coherence. It's sense of flow and expressive range rests on its timbral and textural continuity, its overall control of the musical bandwidth as a whole. That's what allows it to go slow as well as fast, to give performers a physical presence without resorting to cranking up the second order harmonics - and slugging the dynamics and immediacy as a result. This coherence and innate sense of stability also allow the Vacuum State to make the most of differences between formats; SACD's superiority over red-book discs is manifest, but vinyl still rules the roost ... Looking for shortcomings you'll need to compare the SVP-2 to the very best (and most expensive units) out there ..." - Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi+ Magazine, Issue 60
