The new TP-2.5i phono stage represents a tremendous value for those looking to assemble a high resolution analog system at a reasonable cost. Completely re-designed from the earlier version, the TP-2.5i is trickled down from our flagship phono stage, the renowned TP-6.5. Delivering a large measure of the musicality and resolution of its much more expensive stablemate, the new TP-2.5i offers dramatic improvements in speed, delicacy, nuance and drive.
Crafted with a similar high quality build and finish as VTL’s more expensive models, the TP-2.5i has an elegant silhouette, and the features to match. With an eye toward flexibility and user friendliness, the TP-2.5i offers user-adjustable cartridge impedance, and two levels of gain, with inputs for both MC and MM cartridges. JFET/tube hybrid circuitry is used for the MC stage, and all-tube circuitry for the MM stage. Additional functions include a front-panel switchable function that is internally selectable between rumble filter or mono. The signal path is purposely kept simple and direct, with audiophile-grade components throughout, for ultimate sonic purity.
With the new TP-2.5i phono stage, VTL have created an entry to true high-end analog sound. The VTL ‘family’ genes of highly resolved detail, linearity and controlled bass are all there, along with tonal depth, richly textured midrange and spaciousness you won’t find in most phono stages. For the true music lover seeking to capture the special magic that only a fine analog system can provide, the new TP-2.5i phono stage is an essential component.
