Description

The VT-series microphone preamplifiers will change the way you think of audio quality.  The transparency is astounding.  Vocals sound smoother, warmer, more intimate, with a compelling presence. Any microphone and any sound will benefit from the improved clarity, definition, and lack of solid-state artifacts.

The best.

I believe this is the best preamp on the market, as I have tried a lot of them. It's a class A preamp.
