Vincent SV-737 Stereo Hybrid Integrated Amplifier
A 180 W, Class A amp with a 6N2P and 6N1P tube input stage, and 85A2 tube regulation. Also has an onboard streaming DAC with wireless capability
German manufacturer, Vincent adds a few modern touches to its highly regarded tubeLine with the SV-737. This hybrid amp now has a streaming DAC on board and offers both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The box houses two distinct pre and power amp circuits that have been matched perfectly to one another. Vincent has worked on creating a match that offers maximum transparency and spectral stability.
The SV-737 gets its tube stage from the SA-T7 preamplifier, employing its basic principle of two gain blocks with embedded, switchable tone control. There are now two double triodes per channel, and voltage amplification is provided by 6N2P-EV tubes. These have a characteristic curve that is similar to the well-known ECC83
or 12AX7 yet more linear. In addition, the 6N2P-EV is particularly low in microphony and noise.
With its high-current cathodes, the 6N1P tubes takes over the function of the driver and buffer stage. Voltage regulation, also from the SA-T7 uses an 85A2 tube, originally developed for high-sensitivity measurement technology. It provides a low-noise and almost hum-free supply voltage in combination with a semiconductor regulator.
