The Audiant VP3 is a highly flexible customisable vinyl preamplifier capable of connecting both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges to your audio system, providing low distortion, high dynamic range and a sound which is open, detailed and transparent.

The VP3 includes separate low noise input stages for Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges with dip switches for both resistive and capacitive loading on each input allowing for a clean, direct customisable signal path from the cartridge output.

The separate direct connections and switches ensure minimal noise and maximum channel separation, with the added ability of connecting two cartridges simultaneously and conveniently selecting between the two from the front panel.

Four different gain settings, the ability to switch between the normal RIAA and IEC RIAA equalisation curves and the selectable Mono input ensure the highly flexible VP3 is compatible with any cartridge and audio system through the high rated balanced (XLR) and unbalanced output connections.

The highest quality internal power supply features a custom designed, fully shielded toroidal transformer with shunt voltage regulation and filtering ensuring a low noise supply providing high levels of transparency, detail and dynamics.

The internal layout ensures that the power supply is separated from the preamplifier stage to reduce noise while the mirrored layout of the preamplifier design about the output ensures maximum channel separation.

Whether as part of a complete Audiant system or as the vinyl preamplifier in your existing system, the VP3 will reconnect you with your MUSIC.
