It's the smallest of things.

The subtle detail, the nuance, the clarity, the unsuspected beauty. The touch of bow on string, the stroke of a guitar pick.

The lightest tap of a tympani from the back of the hall.
It's the large things, too. The fire in a soloist's technique. The power in a soprano, rising above the orchestra. The Herron Audio VTSP-2 respects the music. So much more than just the notes.

The Herron Audio VTSP-2 vacuum tube pream- plifier is designed to take the listener as close as possible to the original live musical performance.

State-of-the-art components and innovative design are combined using a purist approach that provides utmost clarity and reproduces the emotion, dynamics, and passion of the musical performance without adding or subtracting any colorations or distortions of its own.

The clarity of its performance is true to the source.

The VTSP-2 employs a volume control system
very similar to the highly-rated Herron Audio VTSP-1A/166, with the addition of a remote
control and level display. The VTSP-2 volume control provides 100 steps of discrete and precise channel- to-channel matched level control. The electronic stepped attenuators provide distortionless volume control that will not degrade with time or use.

The front-panel displays on the VTSP-2 are powered from individual latches and are not sequentially flashed (multiplexed) as in most display designs. This more-costly approach means that each relevant display element is continuously illuminated, and no audio signal path interference is generated from

the display.

The VTSP-2 front-panel input controls (and remote control) operate individual sealed gold-contact relays, located at the input connectors to insure pure connections, short signal paths, and long life.

Questions for the seller
Version 2 ?
It is a VTSP-2 (r02) This is the model that came before the VTSP-3 and subsequently the 3A version. However don’t let this fool you. It may be a slightly older VTSP but still an amazing line stage that will put to shame many of its contemporaries that retailed at twice its original price in my humble opinion. Original MSRP for this unit was 5k by the way.
