Is the Audiant VP3 Phono Pre .... A Giant Killer?

Praise filled reviews continue to pour in from around the world  ..... so does the Audiant VP3 sit amongst the elite ... and could we have created a Giant Killer?

Designed to be a preamplifier that you invest in once, and to accomodate your changing tastes in cartridges and turntables, its incredible customisation options, enable you to adapt the VP3 to your altered preferences. The VP3 is also comfortable in a multiple turntable setting, allowing you to simultaneously connect the unit to two turntables with 2 different optimised cartridges and simply select between them.

Just think, two turntables, both connected and individually optimised. One high output MC cartridge and the other a low output or MC and MM....it couldn't be more flexible.

So how good is the VP3?

The latest review out of Lithuania says:

  • ‘When listening to various genres of music – Sarah Vaughan, even during the most complex pieces, the VP3 delivered an excellent impression with exceptional depth of soundstage coupled incredible realism of instruments and performers.
  • 'Tempo, rhythm and precise correctness were well matched and it portrayed an attractive musicality over the entire system'
  • 'There can be no doubt that the Perreaux Audiant VP3 represents the best ratio of the price and quality in the given market segment. Perreaux had succeeded to produce a product, where minimalism is effectively combined with the musicality. Listeners are touched and emotionally became the part of the music, they get shocked by the detailed and wide sound stage, getting the impression that musicians are playing in the same room.'
  • 'We came away with unforgettable impressions from listening to great music from excellent high-fidelity gear.'

Conclusions:

  • 'Perreaux has created excellent phono stage Audiant VP3. Whilst the component is expensive, it represents a very reasonable investment for those who own a high class vinyl player, collection of records, good speakers and amplifier. The VP3 from New Zealand manufacturer combines great functionality with unbelievably attractive sounding musical recordings”.'
