VTL – IT 85

Product Description

VTL – IT 85 integrated amplifier

The VTL IT-85 Integrated Amplifier is designed for those who seek the simplicity of a single chassis system,

but with the performance of separates. Designed with a fully active preamplifier stage, the IT-85 delivers a hearty 60 watts per channel

with the sonic characteristic that is similar to our well regarded ST-85 Stereo amplifier and the TL2.5 preamplifier combination – fast,

musical 3-D sound, and solid bass support that VTL is known for. The IT-85 is a full linestage preamp and power amplifier in one chassis,

and the linestage section has sufficient gain and a buffered output to be able to drive a subwoofer through the preamp out.

The headphone section of the IT-85 is driven off the tube output stage and output transformer of the power amplifier section thus making

it an ideal high performance pure tube headphone amplifier for headphone aficionados. The IT-85 is designed to accommodate future

upgrade – when you are ready to add a subwoofer, separate pre- or power amplifier, surround processor or headphones to your system,

the IT-85’s many different output stage configurations can be easily and painlessly re-configured, often with just the flip of a switch.

Hand built in our factory in California with the proven VTL quality, the IT-85 will give you lasting value and

listening pleasure for years to come.
