The Ypsilon VPS-1000 has set a new standard for phono pre-amplifier performance by implementing a circuit topology, design and materials quality that had been unprecedented. This includes passive RIAA equalization, a transformer driven LCR network, a split RIAA design using two gain stages based on the SIEMENS C3g tube and a power supply using the 6CA4 rectifier tube and a choke filter.

So how is it possible to improve it? Ypsilon released a SE (Silver Edition) version of the VPS-100 in which the signal path consists of the highest quality pure silver, including special in-house manufactured silver transformers, wiring, connectors, etc.

Creating a VPS-1000SE requires a special effort. The components required have to be hand made from rare and expensive materials. The manufacturing time is significant and the engineering know-how needed to create these transformers requires a degree of expertise and an uncompromising commitment to audio quality that is only found at the very pinnacle of audio engineering.

Is all this extraordinary effort worth it? If you have ensured that the rest of your analogue system is of commensurate quality and are searching for a phono pre-amplifier that can give you an ultimate emotional connection with the musical experience….if you enjoy those ‘goose bump’ moments where you experience that total immersion in the music and have forgotten that you are even listening to a system, then we think that it is certainly worth it.
