Vincent Audio SV-500 Arriving Today

So I have a Vincent Audio SV-500 arriving today.

Pretty excited and not sure what I am going to experience (something good I hope of course!)
They will be connected to Martin Logan Motion 40’s, Questyle CMA400i DAC and Denon dp-300f TT with a Ortofon 2M Blue, Hi Res music from my HTPC (DSD and other Flac Files).

Since the Vincent does not have a phono stage for now, I will need to use the built in phono in the Denon.

And I will be comparing to my current source, a Denon AVR-5700.Perhaps not as much power as the Denon but am hoping that I am going to like.
I think the following will happen:
- I absolutely love it and stay with it
- I don’t see a big difference from the Denon and return it
- I don’t like the sound of a Hybrid Amp and return it and get a SS Amp (maybe a Yamy AS1100 or 2100)
- I like it very much and get curious about the SV-237MK and so exchange for that


Got roughly 30 days to figure it out.


We’ll see....

Well, wanted to provide an update incase anyone might be interested.


I ended up keeping the Vincent.


I think it sound really good and I bought a Moon by SimAudio 110lp V2 Phono Pre-Amp also.


Overall, sounds fantastic. Sorry, I am not versed in all the audiophile lingo just yet.


I was tempted to get the big brother SV-237MK but I read it pretty much sounds the same but has more power/bass and it's another $1500, maybe in the future.


Happy for now.


I wish there were more reviews out there as the 237MK seems to get all the attention.

While the Moon 110 (their intro level) is a great phonostage I'm kinda surprised that you didn't go with the Vincent PHO-701 phonostage..

Yea, I hear you on that.


I was at a local hifi shop and they had in stock and I had already read good reviews on it and so I went for it.


Sometimes when you find something in front of you ready to go, just can't resist, at least for me that is the case, lol.
