Audio Research VSi60 Tube Integrated Amplifier




The VSi60 clearly proves that you do not have to spend a fortune to enjoy truly great sound at home


The VSi60 Integrated Amplifier with a rated output of 50 watts per channel offers an here-to-fore unavailable level of performance, build quality and value at the price.

The control section of the VSi60 is passive, utilizing microprocessor-controlled relays. The high performance input relay paths are especially short. The microprocessor control remembers the last input selected and the stereo/mono setting when it is powered down. Upon turn-on there is an automatic 30-second warmup mute, with the volume control reset to zero. 

Musically, the VSi60 is a joy to listen to, with great tonality, resolution and dynamics. You will have to keep reminding yourself that the VSi60 is reasonably priced because other products sound colored and lifeless in comparison. There is no bandwidth limiting, and the robust power supply allows music to flow with remarkable dynamic life. The VSi60 is pure, harmonically right, and lets music bloom. Pair the VSi60 with a great CD player and loudspeakers and you can have a compact system which defies expectations and gets to the heart of the music.X
