This is the manufacturers demo of the Vinyl One Copper Reference. This is fitted with variable gain which is controlled via a nob on the back. The Vinly One does not have a built in rumble filter. Works best with a preamp that has a subsonic filter or we can recommend one if you have lower efficiency speakers.
First round of demo units are all available as we don't want these demos to get to old before they find a forever home.
This unit was new in 2019. Most Vinyl One's you will see are 10+ years old.
The sound on this unit is to die for and you will need to step up to something quite a bit more expensive to exceed it. I have paired with with a Lyra Kleos and Ortofon Cadenza Blue and in both cases the results were spectacular.
The Vinyl One Copper Reference is the best of our world class valve phono stages. It works with both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges.
Like the base Vinyl One, it is a class-A, phase-correct design that uses a single 12AX7 per channel, one 12AX7 as cathode follower, and a 6FQ7 in its power supply. Its moving-magnet section provides 50dB of gain, with the moving-coil providing an additional 20dB. The input impedance is 100 ohms, and sensitivity is 2.25mV. Its rated frequency response is 20Hz - 20kHz +/- 1dB (moving magnet), 10Hz - 20kHz (moving coil). The Vinyl One is 18"W x 4"H x 10"D.
Just like the Copper Reference amplifiers, this is also wired using only continuous cast copper and is fitted with Art Audio's Silver Foil Coupling Capacitors. The power supply in the Vinyl One Copper Reference is further enhanced with non electrolytic capacitors across the filter caps.
