With the beautiful new look, the flexible connection options, and the great new features, thrilling audio performance remains ARC’s primary goal. Designed as part of the Foundation series, the core of the VT80 is adapted from the Reference 75, including the same power and output transformers, similar circuit topology, and many of the same parts. The 75 watt-per-channel VT80 offers striking dynamics, powerful bass, and natural clarity combined with a very holographic presentation. The result is sonically breathtaking and provides a new reference in its price range.
New-in-box Audio Research VT80 Power Amplifier in Silver finish. Audio Research has discontinued the VT80.
Amp is brand-new and comes in factory-sealed box.
Unit comes with full factory warranty.
POWER OUTPUT: 75 watts per channel continuous from 20Hz to 20kHz. 1kHz total harmonic distortion typically 1% at 75 watts, below 0.05% at 1 watt. (Note that actual power output is dependent upon both line voltage and ‘condition’ ie.: if power line has high distortion, maximum power will be affected adversely, although from a listening standpoint this is not very critical.). Channel separation: 112dB. Signal to noise: 112dB. Controls: Power on/off, auto shut-off on/defeat, Input BAL/SE, RS232, 12V trigger. Ambient air temperature: 30° C (86° F) maximum ambient air temperature.
POWER BANDWIDTH: (-3dB points) 7Hz to 60kHz
FREQUENCY RESPONSE: (-3dB points at 1 watt) 0.7Hz to 80kHz
INPUT SENSITIVITY: 1.4V RMS BAL for rated output. (25dB Bal gain into 8 ohms.)
