VAC Audio began with the desire to bring life and realism into reproduced music, making it sound as close to the actual thing as possible. VAC Audio products are treasured because they allow each masterpiece to be heard as the musicians intended.
The distinction between just a good amplifier and a truly great amplifier lies in the details, both large and small. The primary reason VAC audio equipment is remarkable is because the company uses vacuum tube technology almost exclusively throughout their product line. After nearly 100 years since the triode vacuum tube was invented, it remains the true king of amplification and producing superior sonic quality and performance.
When properly designed, a tube amplifier preserves far more vigor of an original musical performance. Simply put, tubes bring music back to life. This is why the world’s leading guitarists use tube amplifiers, and why vacuum tube microphones and processors are highly coveted by the world’s leading recording studios. Tubes have a sound that is different from solid state amplifiers and produce a unique sound for the human ear.
An additional benefit is hand wiring of VAC audio products. By doing this, designers gain more freedom in ‘voicing’ through their ability to choose materials such as conductor material(s), size and geometry of wires and insulation used to construct equipment.
A third reason VAC products do not disappoint: The relentless search for true musical sound. Once electrical design is finished, the team spends hours in our ‘voicing’ process. During this time, the design team tests different parts configurations and how those changes affect overall sonic quality. VAC owners continue to appreciate the result. A pure, immersive listening experience.
VAC Sigma 170i Integrated Amplifier
The new VAC Sigma 170i is the world’s first integrated amplifier with the patented iQ Continuous Intelligent Automatic Bias System. The iQ System holds the true idle point of the output tubes perfectly steady under all conditions, increasing detail & dynamics, lowering distortion & noise, prolonging tube life, and protecting the amplifier. Integrated amplifiers are a great lifestyle choice, and VAC lets you have all of the benefits of tubes without the worry.SKU: n/a
VAC Statement 450i iQ Integrated Amplifier
The Statement 450i iQ Integrated Amplifier is an ultimate performance, cost-no-object instrument that establishes a new benchmark for sound quality in integrated amplifiers. Part of the secret of its performance is in the unusual vertical form factor, which allows the optimal placement of circuit elements and purest, most direct routing of signals, for a total result that exceeds the sum of its parts.SKU: n/a
