National Audio Show 2011

JE Audio from Hong Kong builds some very well-finished tube components, and its latest is the VL19 line-stage preamp ($4500). This has six inputs, both balanced and single ended, dual balanced outputs for biamping, and it avoids the use of global feedback. It’s powered by four 6H30Pi tubes and is fully remote controllable. What’s more, it has an LED display to indicate gain. It can be partnered with the VM60 balanced mono power amps ($6000/pair), which use four KT88s in their output stage to produce 60 watts each.
