Vitus Audio SL-102 Phonostage
The Vitus Audio SL-101 replacement has arrived. After spending a very long time developing the new two chassis Vitus Audio MP-L201 extreme linestage, it was clear that a serious look at a replacement for the Vitus Audio SL-101 was needed.
In the development of the Vitus Audio MP-L201, we did not expect that the improvement in performance would be so dramatic, but all the hours of refining, even the smallest of parts, really paid off in an unimaginable way. As a result, the SL-102 is not an upgraded Vitus Audio SL-101, it is a brand new design based on the technologies gained through the development of the Vitus Audio MP-L201.
From market requests, we introduced an optional phonostage for building directly into the Vitus Audio SL-102. This phonostage is based on the well reviewed RP-100, (please refer to the Reference Series on our web site under reviews), however without the battery supply. This phonostage has recently undergone a major redesign and delivers a performance very close to the original Vitus Audio RP-100. In the Vitus Audio SL-102, we spent many hours implementing the load setting system developed for the Vitus Audio MP-P201, as well as adding MM/MC selection to the SL-102 menu system, so the RP-010 is a fully integrated part of the Vitus Audio SL-102. As with our other linestages, a full bypass feature has been implemented. This allows external surround processors to take full control of the volume, when used in multichannel systems.
