VTL has just introduced the new S-400 Reference Stereo 400 Watt Amplifier. “The enthusiasm for our first product using these new technologies, the Siegfried Reference Monoblocks, has been very strong,” said Luke Manley, President of VTL. “Now, with the more affordable S-400, we’re bringing similar sound and functionality to a wider market.”
The newest member of the Reference Series uses the same self-optimizing autobias circuitry, comprehensive diagnostics, and fault sensing found in the Siegfried Monoblocks. Remote operation and true RS-232 bi-directionality enable the S-400 to integrate into modern home theater systems.
VTL’s approach to preamplifiers is also expected to trickle down to other more affordable products shortly. “We’re currently developing a one-chassis version of the TL-7.5 Reference Line Preamplifier, which will be available later in 2004, and will be called the TL-6.5” said Manley.
