The new VP-1 is the latest addition to the Valve Classics range, and combines all the best elements of the PA-1 pentode preamp, C-1 compressor and EQ-2 parametric equaliser to create a truly flexible and good sounding valve front end for any audio system.

The VP-1 features seven valve stages, run from a stabilised 250v DC supply.
The first stage is a Siemens EF86 pentode in the front end of the preamp, followed by six Sovtek ECC83/12AX7A stages - one in the secondary stage of the preamp, one in the compressor and four in the EQ section.

* The VP-1 is the complete analogue processing solution and is packed with extra features including :
* Valve and class A preamp stages
* Valve and optical compression circuits
* Expander/gate
