The Vincent Audio SV237 integrated amplifier is coming in July

I have received word from the US importer that the new Vincent Audio SV237 is due in the USA around the end of June/beginning of July. The retail price will be $2399.95. As the SV237 will also be available on the Internet I will make a price adjustment to assure that my St. Louis customers have price parity with the internet.


Here are the main features:

  • A tube preamplifier section and solid stare power amplifier section give the best of tube and solid state.
  • Tube life of 20,000 hours means that few owners will ever have to replace tubes.
  • 150 watts per channel into 8 ohms; 250 watts into 4 ohms.with the same solid bass and huge power reserves that I have found in all Vincent Audio amplifiers.
  • The first 10 watts are Class A
  • 5 RCA inputs and a USB input that is described as “CD quality”. When I asked for a better description all I was told is that it is a 16 bit DAC, so I assume it is the sort of DAC found in a mainstream CD player, not a high-end DAC.
  • Record out and pre-out RCA jacks.
  • 2 sets of speaker binding posts, to allow bi-amping
  • Weight of 45 pounds shows the beefy transformer and general construction.

The SV237 has been in Europe a while. Another German language review has been published by There are several good photographs, an interview with the designer, who has designed reference electronics for both Thorens and Vincent Audio, and a final rating of Uberragend (Outstanding). To read the review use Google and let it translate to English.
