"Product of the Year" 2012 - The Absolute Sound Magazine
"The SPT-800 closely fulfills the promise of a hybrid design: tube magic with plenty of bass crunch and power drive..." - Dick Olsher, The Absolute Sound, December 2008
Symmetrical Design Monoblock with XLR Input
The new Vincent SP-T800 dual mono power amplifier keeps its inner quality well hidden behind an unassuming yet inarguable stylish exterior. The sculpted chassis, available in black or silver finish, conceals a true powerhouse of a performer. Its operation is characterized by a lively presentation plus an effortless quality with the most difficult source material.
"A Totally Black and Silent Background"
The Absolute Sound Magazine honored the Vincent SP-T800 with a "Product of the Year Award" in its January 2012 issue. "This amp delivers tube magic at an eminently reasonable price." The hybrid design results in "a rock-solid bottom end that tube amplifiers simply can't approach."
The monoblock design dedicates one monaural amplifier per channel. So, for a stereo system, you'll need a pair of SP-T800s. This configuration, with a completely separate chassis and power supply for each amp and channel results in superior channel separation and enviable overall performance.
In his December 2008 review for The Absolute Sound magazine, Dick Olsher reports, "The SPT-800 closely fulfills the promise of a hybrid design: tube magic with plenty of bass crunch and power drive in one nicely 'gift-wrapped' chassis."
The Best of Tubes and Solid State
The well-conceived design of the SP-T800 offers an ideal sonic combination, bringing you the warmth and detail that only vacuum tubes can provide along with the power and control of Vincent's solid state circuitry.
The SPT-800 delivers a clean and potent 200 watts of musical power at 8 ohms, thanks to the combined might of eight high-power transistors. The preamplification stage relies on Russian 6922 and a pair of 6N6 vacuum tubes for its excellence.
The massive 500-watt transformer supplies a total of 80,000 µF, which provides the foundation of this amp's exceptional bass. The new FET mains connector contributes to the high signal to noise ratio in the final stage, along with very little distortion plus a clear and open sound.
The XLR input lets you take maximum sonic advantage of the Vincent. The 12-volt trigger is great for system integration. Two pairs of speaker terminals give you A+B speaker selection.
