    Product Information

    Cary Audio has always supported playback of vinyl records, and today there is a revival of the LP as a serious format, both for audiophiles and for the general music public. With the new VT-500, even the most demanding vinyl enthusiast will realise this exotic unit is dedicated to nothing short of incomparable vinyl playback.

    The VT-500 is a vacuum tube stereo phono preamplifier utilising four (4) 6SL7 dual triode tubes. The RIAA equalisation curve is derived from a passive RC circuit located between the two gain stages. The VT-500 uses a fully regulated power supply housed in a large separate heavy-duty external power supply chassis ensuring an extremely quiet operation.

    The MC section uses two high quality step-up transformers providing enough gain for use with any MC cartridge with a very low noise floor.

    The VT-500 offers inputs and selectable loading to match almost any moving-magnet or moving-coil phono cartridge.

    This will optimise the response to best match your cartridge.

    For the analogue lover, the VT-500 is a magical blend of art and technology that will add to your music listening enjoyment hour after hour. You’ll hear subtle shadings and exciting dynamic contrasts on all types of music. If you are serious about your vinyl music collection and your turntable, the VT-500 should be part of your system.
