Vincent SV-236 MK

How much tube sound in hybrid amplifiers, as there is the brand new version of the Vincent SV-236? And most importantly: what kind of tube sound? HiFi fans write to the archaic components namely very different, even opposing some of the qualities.

  2. Data sheet

HiFi fans write to the archaic components namely very different, even opposing some of the qualities. Some expect an acoustic security blanket to protect against the hardening of liebloser digital productions and insist on the traditional image of the soft, warm tube sound. Others Revere a more modern sound ideal and use tubes, to achieve that rare blend of speed and complete freedom of the grain, have coined for the Anglo-Saxon high-Ender the beautiful word “liquidity”.
Metrological point of view the amps of both schools often hardly distinguish what invalidated also the accusation, tube amplifiers handle generally simple effect devices. Their designers use only the opportunity to shape the last rest of character every Hi-Fi has inevitably, clean and consistent after their respective performances. With ERG Bebnissen, that allow to understand in each plant.
On the feature front, the Vincent SV-236 swashbuckling mature to the MK version after all counters with tone controls and loudness button. Otherwise it comes the mighty amp solely to increase the signal of one of his six line inputs with the best possible mix of vehemence and accuracy. The tubes porthole in the front panel, solemnly by additional LEDs and shows multi-level dimmable illuminated one of three double triode, one concerned with the gain. Not two, but four bipolar transistors in a classical, parallel complementary arrangement assume the Executive then per channel. Their quiescent current is set to that performance is up to about 10 Watts – in practice arise only rarely longer needed – in pure A-operation and thus especially distortion. The class-A heavy interpretation of the 236 explains also his unusually large aluminum cooling Palisades, that is polite warming already in idle state: here is working hard.
Although located 236 MK outwardly almost indistinguishable from MK-less predecessor is different, its German and Chinese engineers have worked in the Interior but sound: the encapsulated toroidal transformer got a more efficient core material, the circuit boards of a still geradlinigeres layout and in critical locations, higher-quality components, about German WIMA film capacitors instead of their Chinese double. By the way grew the power output on drastic 260 watts RMS 4 Ohms. This value means that the Vincent owner needs to take care when choosing boxes now really just about the sound.
Despite its careful structure with numerous screen walls, a such HiFi reactor is no ideal home for sensitive phono preamplifier, and so you take it the company not so bad, that it not only offers a corresponding input and instead refers to several external preamp models at reasonable prices.
If other tube amp like to come with effects and acoustic heat, almost a kind of spaghetti westerns under the amps, then the role of Scandinavian author film falls to the Vincent: the SV-236 showed significantly streamlined In the bass, thus of course also sober, instantly more details, the architecture of the shots more accurately traced and followed every tiny nuance of character in singers. Its wealth of detail could have still be increased with a more open high-frequency range, but here are the developers for a very decently rounded character decided. Which is why of the SV-236 as distinguished which feature his flawless midrange in memory remains, which is embedded in a while not unison weighty, but perfect for this controlled and contoured bass.
