Description

Vincent SV-228 Hybrid Integrated Amplifier

The Vincent SV-228 Hybrid Integrated Amplifier replaces the outgoing SV-227MK. New features include an updated DAC with Bluetooth and (hallelujah!) VU meters. The interior layout has been totally redone as well. The topology of the SV-228, like many Vincent integrated amplifiers, consists of a tube preamplifier section feeding a Class A/B power section. The preamplifier relies on one 6N4 and two ECC82 tubes, both affordable and widely available. These are interchangeable with 12AX7 and 12AU7 tubes respectively. There are numerous tube hybrid amps out on the market but most in the real-world price realm utilize Class D power modules with a tube preamp or output buffer. It’s cool to see the traditional circuit styles married here.

In terms of features, the SV–228 is a slight variation on the standard integrated amplifier formula. Here the phono stage is swapped for a DAC with Bluetooth connectivity. There are plenty of RCA line inputs and for digital, one coaxial and one optical input. Thankfully this integrated includes both pre-outs for the subwoofer crowd and record outputs for outboard headphone amps. A few years ago the absence of a USB input would be an issue but with the current streaming landscape that’s no longer a disadvantage.

The SV-228 features a 6.3 mm headphone output but it’s unclear from simply popping the hood whether the headphone output just steps down the main circuit or if there is a dedicated op amp-based headphone stage.

Lastly, a basic but classy metal-clad remote is included.
