Cary Audio has always supported playback of vinyl records, and the American brand have now launched their new VT-500 Phono preamplifier.

The VT-500 is a vacuum tube stereo phono preamplifier that uses four 6SL7 dual triode tubes. The RIAA equalization curve is derived from a passive RC circuit located between the two gain stages.

External Power Supply

The VT-500 uses a fully regulated power supply housed in a large separate heavy-duty external power supply chassis ensuring an extremely quiet operation. The MC section uses two high quality step-up transformers providing enough gain for use with any MC cartridge with a very low noise floor. The VT-500 offers inputs and selectable loading to match almost any moving-magnet or moving-coil phono cartridge.

Price And Availability 

The Cary Audio VT-500 has a list price of $5,495 and is now shipping.
