The Vincent SA-31 stereo preamplifier delivers the luxurious sound of finely-made vacuum tube equipment plus the power, punch, and reliability associated with solid state designs. The vacuum tube output stage of the SA-31 uses a unique proprietary design configuration with a short signal path to create a delicate and detailed soundstage.

“The SA-31 is a very good preamplifier that gives the listeners a significant taste of the sound of higher-priced equipment,” reports Chris Martens in the August 2007 issue of The Absolute Sound.
