Vitus RD100 Pre / DAC

Description: The RD100 Pre / DAC comes, complete with manual and original box, Apple remote control, power cord.  A1 Condition Cost new is £10800 so grab a bargain This unit has a reference quality integrated volume control (in analog domain, using sophisticated resistor networks). Therefore, you could use this without a separate preamp for the most clarity. In addition, the unit has 2 analog inputs, which do not get digitized into the digital domain. When selected, the analog inputs get passed through the unit (digital section turned off), directly to the volume control. Therefore, this unit can work perfectly for the minimalist system for both analog and digital inputs (thus saving the cost of a reference grade preamp). This is what makes this unit unique, and an overall good deal. There is also a handy chassis ground connection to help eliminate ground loops. Please feel free to ask any questions.

Vitus SM-010 Monoblocks

Description: A fantastic opportunity for someone to get into a 30 grand set of SM-010 monoblocks from Vitus Audio who as you probably know make some of the finest amplification known to man. These signature class monos are in wonderful condition and comes in their boxes with printed manual. Enough grunt to easily drive all but the most extreme loads. The SM-010 is very well built and, at 17"W x 5"H x 16.75"D, surprisingly heavy -- each one weighs 92 pounds, no doubt mostly because of the custom-made transformer that occupies about a third of its interior. Hans Ole Vitus told me that his transformers are a very important factor in the sound of his products. Another amp maker told me that transformer design is an art, and that the transformer makes or breaks an amplifier. Vitus must feel similarly -- he builds his own UI-core units. Also under the SM-010’s top plate, in addition to that heavy, expensive iron, are Sanken output transistors and what looks to be VA’s own internal wiring. Vitus has also clearly thought about clumsy audiophiles and children: The top and bottom plates wrap around the side-panel heatsinks, which helps tremendously when positioning the amps, or when children are navigating a maze of audio gear. The binding posts and XLR and RCA input connectors are of extremely high quality. The SM-010 has two output modes: It produces 40W in pure class-A, or 100W in class-A/B, both into 8 ohms. "The words natural and real recur throughout my notes and this review. My listening sessions never lacked for anything, and I never wanted more. I always heard and enjoyed the music, not the electronics. I played everything I could get my hands on through the Vitus SM-010s, and they reproduced all of it beautifully. Could you ask for more? It’s one of the most complete, most natural-sounding amplifiers I have heard. I would like to own a pair!"
