Used sparingly in smoke-free home. Condition is 9/10 -- like new condition, no dings, dents, or discoloration.
The tube complement is 4 x KT120 and 2 x 6H30 (different from Stereophile review but is the Audio Research OEM complement). Dimensions: 14" W x 8" H x 17 D. A passive line stage is combined with a JFET input stage driving two 6H30 driver tubes, one per channel. The output stage for each channel uses a matched pair of Svetlana 6550C push-pull output tubes with a combination of pentode operation and ARC's partially cathode-coupled topology. The controls on the faceplate (available in silver or black) are very similar to those on ARC's SP17 preamp.
There are six soft-touch buttons (duplicated on the slim, elegant remote control), for Power, Mute, Stereo/Mono, Input selection, and Volume Up/Down. The rich, glorious, uncolored, holographic midrange of the VSi60 made it a natural match for well-recorded voices.With every recording I played, the VSi60 reproduced all transients with flawless speed and articulation and no trace of smear or hardness. In the VSi60, Audio Research has produced an integrated amplifier of staggering quality, versatility, and value. Please feel free to ask questions, will answer accurately and in a timely manner.
