(Price Lowered) Highly regarded LVK Research Veros One phono stage, Pure Class A, Zero Feedback, dual mono design, featuring regulated outboard power supply with ground defeat options and will easily accommodate MM, MC, MI, low, med. and high output phono cartridges. XLR and RCA type input/output terminations standard. For those who may not be familiar, this Bill Hutchins design offers an incredibly neutral, balanced and ultra quiet
solid state phono stage and in my personal opinion you will be hard pressed to find a better stand alone phono stage for under $10k. This is a low hour, one meticulous owner consignment model, and includes factory user manual plus original packing materials. Conservative 9/10 rating but closer to a flawless 10/10 in reality.

LKV Research Veros One
One of the best sounding phonostages I've heard. Contains many
options to allow almost infinite combinations of music / cartridges
/ vinyl as well as a no-holds-barred external power supply keeping
all of the noisy components out of the way of the music. You can
tell a lot of thought and time went into this product and it deserves
to be recognized.
So, there you have it. The LKV Veros
One is now the holy grail of phonostages, in my opinion, and I implore
you to try one if you haven't already, there is definitely something you
are missing from your system if you haven't.
Thanks for listening. Pete Davey
The LKV Veros One
The Ultimate in Musically Engaging and Accurate LP Reproduction
The Veros One, LKV Research’s top-of-the-line phono preamp,
provides the ultimate in musically accurate LP reproduction. Designed
by Bill Hutchins, creator of LKV’s highly acclaimed Phono 2-SB, the
Veros One takes the excellent performance of the 2-SB to a higher level
with premium parts; innovative RIAA circuitry; accurate, extremely
quiet gain blocks; increased dynamic headroom; revised power supply
regulation and filtering; and an output buffer that delivers
astonishingly good performance even into low impedances.
Moreover, the Veros offers the user convenient, panel
mounted switches to select among 10 cartridge loading options and two
equalization curves: the precisely accurate “RIAA” network, and the
warmer sounding “Contour” network. Like the Phono 2-SB, the Veros One
accepts balanced and single ended inputs and delivers its output in
The result is a phono stage that removes the remaining veils
between the listener and the music. The soundstage is deep and the
images within it, precise and solid. The music arises out of a still,
black background revealing all the low level information that is
critical to the meaning and emotional impact of the music. Dynamics are
startling. The sound is detailed but natural and harmonically true.
Features of the LKV Veros One preamplifier:
Very low noise and distortion gain blocks that employ:
- Fully differential, class A, zero feedback amplifier circuits implemented entirely with discrete components.
- Low noise jfets that are hand matched to very tight tolerances
(less than +/- 0. I mA Idss) and are biased into their most linear
- Cascode gain circuitry and stiff current source biasing that
create a stable environment which allow the jfets to amplify
Two user selectable equalization networks:
- An RIAA network that achieves an accuracy of +/- 0.1 dB
by virtue of 0.1% metal film resistors and 1% tolerance polypropylene
- A contour network that allows the user to select a slightly warmer, more tube-like sound.
Balanced and single ended inputs and outputs:
- Balanced out – 4 choices from 40 dB to 68 dB.
- Single ended out – 4 choices from 34 dB to 62 dB.
Construction and components that are optimized for sound quality:
- Dual mono construction to reduce crosstalk and enhance imaging.
- Four layer circuit boards minimize the length of signal and ground traces to prevent noise.
- Only 0.1% tolerance metal film resistors are used in the
RIAA and contour networks and in the differential amplifiers. All
other resistors are Vishay/Dale metal film 1% tolerance.
- Only polypropylene capacitors are used in the signal
- High current jfet output buffer.
Separate power supply:
- Custom designed 45 VA toroidal power transformer.
- Built-in RFI line filter
- Low-noise HEXFRED rectifier diodes.
- Extensive on-board voltage regulation and R/C filtering assure clean, stable power supply rails for the gain circuitry.
- Soft start protection to prevent component failure
Positive Feedback Magazine Review and Award for the Veros One
Pete Davey summed up his recent review of the LKV Veros
One by saying, "So, there you have it. The LKV Veros One is now the holy
grail of phonostages, in my opinion, and I implore you to try one if
you haven't already, there is definitely something you are missing from
your system if you haven't."
Positive Feedback also honored the Veros One as one the best that they’ve reviewed during the course of the year."
