VINCENT SV-228 INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER
SWEET SOUNDING HYBRID DESIGN
All new for 2022, the Vincent SV-228 is the natural evolutionary step in the succession of PowerLine components from Vincent, starting with the SV-226 and going through to the SV-227MK.
The SV-228 presents itself in a completely new form, with VU meters embedded in the front panel. It has been further updated with Bluetooth connectivity, and a home theater bypass, making it even more flexible. In terms of sound, dynamics and fine resolution have been improved without losing Vincent’s signature warmth.
Built-in 24/192 DAC
The SV-228 integrated amplifier is a technically-advanced hybrid tube and solid state stereo design with built-in D/A converter.
The SV-228 sets new standards with its circuitry. The preamplifier and power amplifier sections have been matched perfectly to one other, working effortlessly together to achieve maximum transparency and full-frequency wideband audio output. The SV-228 has an impressive dynamic range and plenty of power to make your music come alive as never before.
Both the preamplifier and amplifier sections of the SV-228 are the latest developments from Vincent's audio engineers. The tube-based preamplifier section offers outstanding sonic clarity defeatable tone controls and a loudness button.
Input connectivity consists of two stereo RCA inputs, one digital optical input, one coaxial digital input, bluetooth, one stereo RCA Home Theater Bypass and a Stereo Main input. Outputs include; one Stereo Pre-Out, one Stereo Record Out, and two pairs of speaker binding posts. There is also a front-panel headphone jack. Additionally, there are two 3.5 mm 12V trigger jacks, and a jack for the included Bluetooth antenna.
Separate Preamp and Power Amp Connectivity
Although the preamplifier and amplifier are carefully designed to complement one another, they can be disconnected and used independently. If for example, you might wish to insert an external DSP between them for room correction. Due to the output impedance of the tube preamplifier, which is significantly reduced compared to the SV-228, it can provide a neutral sound when driving common connection cables, such as when using a DSP. You may also wish to split the two sections if you decide to use an external power amp or preamp.
Defeatable Tone Controls / High Quality Headphone Section
Separate tone controls for bass and treble let you tailor the sound to your taste and room requirement. You can also defeat the tone controls by pushing a button on the front panel, which causes the audio signal to bypass the tone control circuitry.
For private listening, the SV-228 includes a high quality headphone output. Use the front panel volume control to adjust listening levels.
A wireless remote comes standard with the SV-228, as does an IEC-type AC power cord.
Bluetooth Streaming Capabilities
For Bluetooth streaming, select the Bluetooth input on the SV-228 and activate the Bluetooth connection on your smartphone, tablet or computer and search for new Bluetooth devices. You will find the SV-228 under the name "Vincent." Choose "Vincent" and start the connection, using your device to select the music you wish to hear through the SV-228.
