LSA  VT-70 Integrated tube amplifier

 

Just in on trade!   Very good condition.  Includes remote and power cord, tube cage. Ships in original factory packaging.

The LSA VT-70 Tube Integrated Stereo Amplifier/Headphone Amplifier is the least expensive pure tube amp I have listened to and it is fantastic. I hear you saying "Is it worth buying a whole integrated amplifier just to use for headphones?" The simple answer is absolutely, though I do recommend hooking up a pair of speakers even if you don't plan on using them to protect the output tubes and transformers, especially if you use multiple headphones. As to power output, I can't imagine a pair of headphones that the VT-70 couldn't drive, worse comes to worst you could just connect the speaker outputs to a breakout box with a headphone jack and drive them that way. I believe the VT-70 would be ideal for a headphone like the RAAL|requisite SR1a that requires a converter box or an electrostatic energizer for use with electrostatic headphones.

 

Furthermore, with its epic soundstage, laser-sharp imaging, deep bass, and linear timbre, along with its incredible musicality regardless of musical choice, the VT-70 is one of the better headphone amplifiers that I have listened to, competing with offerings from other manufacturers at two to three times the price. And that doesn't even take into consideration its ability to drive Loudspeakers, which will be covered in the other half of this review over at HiFiAudio.Guru. If I needed to go out today and purchase a new reference amplifier for headphones, the VT-70 would very likely be my first choice.
