THE VENDETTA RESEARCH SCP-1 PRE-PREAMPLIFIER
Step-up device is in perfect working condition, case shows wear
The Vendetta Research Symmetrical Cascode Pre-preamplifier
represents John Curl's latest all-out effort to develop and effective
between the best moving coil cartridges and the highest quality
preamplifier. The SCP-1 uses one of the most linear topologies ever
in a pre-preamplifier. It is a significant departure form John Curl's
original designs with up to one hundred times less distortion than his
The Symmetrical Cascode Pre-preamplifier consists of a direct
coupled push-pull, complementary FET cascode pair that is effectively a
single stage of amplification. The highest quality components are used
throughout, each channel is buffered with its own all FET regulator,
servo-controlled to remove any capacitors in the audio signal path.
The input loading is continuously variable between 10 and 200 ohms.
Although the pre-preamp is designed with no negative feedback, it can
strapped for a small amount of feedback for use with very low impedance
loading of some moving coil cartridges. A
John Curl developed the first successful low noise pre-preamplifier
for Mark Levinson Audio Systems in 1973. Variations on that patented
design are used in many pre-preamps today.
TOTAL HARMONIC DISTORT ION .01% or less at 300_mV out 10Hz-30kHz
INTERMODULATION DISTORTION .001% at 100mV out
NOISE .4nV/ Hz or 10 ohms
FREQUENCY RESPONSE .1 Hz-1 MHz

Note: The circuitry inverts the polarity and this should be taken into
account when making comparisons.
