QED Vector

Description

The QED Vector remote control active/passive pre-amplifier has been designed to overcome all of the problems of the conventional passive pre-amplifier, and to finally bring the advantages of passive operation (improved sound quality) without any of its inherent limitations.

In the passive mode, the Vector operates just like any other passive pre-amplifier.

This means that the signal-path is direct via high quality reed relays and an ALPS conductive plastic film potentiometer.

There is no amplification or solid state (electronic) switching in the signal path.

The standard model comes in a compact plastic case with an outboard power supply, while the reference is housed in a full width chrome plated case with inbuilt positron type supply.

The standard Vector works well as a passive preamp and has the benefit of a Philips type remote control that may also work with your CD player. In active mode the sound has more bass weight but is otherwise unimpressive.
