Audio Research VSi60
In the 50Wpc VSi60, a passive line stage is combined with a JFET input stage driving one 6H30 driver tube per channel. Each channel’s output stage has a matched pair of Svetlana 6550C push-pull tubes with a combination of pentode operation and ARC’s “partially cathode-coupled topology.” Convenient to use, the VSi60 provides output taps at 4 and 8 ohms, as well as four pairs of voltmeter test points. Though it lacked the ultimate control of more powerful amplifiers, the VSi60 combined a glorious midrange with clean, detailed high frequencies and outstanding low-level dynamic articulation. “In the VSi60, Audio Research has produced an integrated amplifier of staggering quality, versatility, and value,” said BJR. Add $300 for tube cage.
