Herron VTPH-1

Beschrijving / Description

The Herron VTPH-1 is a pretty straightforward and extremely well-executed design: all tube, star grounded, and zero feedback. The RCA and ground connectors are gold plated, the AC cord is detachable, and there is a power-line-polarity switch on the back panel -- a nice touch. Cartridge loading is accomplished via resistors soldered to the input connectors, so there are no switch contacts to corrode over time. The tube complement is four 12AX7WA/Bs and one 12AT7WC. Herron Audio quotes the frequency response at 1Hz to beyond 100kHz (as reported by the bats!). Gain is 44dB for moving-magnet use, 66dB if set up for moving-coil cartridges. The output impedance is 500 ohms nominal (50k ohms or higher recommended load), and the input impedance is 47,000 ohms and 100pF (plus optional loading resistors). The VTPH-1's dimensions are 19"W x 3.5"H x 10"D, and its weight is 20 pounds.
