VAC full-integrated amplifier, with 85-watt/channel power amplifier, true triode tube line control amplifier, and moving magnet phono stage. Flexibility is ensured by standard remote control, home theater input, preamplifier outputs, and optional balanced inputs. If sound quality and simplicity are the priorities, this exceptionally musical amplifier is the answer.
This is the special edition with MM phono stage and balanced input option. Built in November 2017, this is one of the best integrated amps ever made. This unit was built for a speaker review that never happened and Kevin at VAC said said every unit is a little different and this particular 160i is one where they could feel they just got it right. There is something special with what VAC achieves with their sound - it is always delicate and muscular at the same time!
Tube components: 4 - KT88, 4 - 12AU7, - 3 - 12AT7
It includes the original box, vacuum tubes and volume remote control. Retail is $12,990 + $1,000 for the balanced input.
The Sigma 160i SE (Special Edition) enhances performance by upgrading the input transformers and many passive parts to the types used in the premium Statement instruments. Greater size, detail, speed, and weight is the result.
Includes Gold Lion KT88SC tubes which are fantastic!
