 Product Notes With the new TL6.5 Signature Preamplifier, true top-tier sound has just become a lot more affordable. All of the advanced technology inside the TL6.5 descends from the double-chassis TL7.5, VTL’s renowned Reference Preamplifier that many critics view as unsurpassed in sonic realism. By scaling the technology down to a single-chassis unit, VTL engineers have found a way to achieve the astonishing sound quality and functionality of the TL7.5 in a compact package costing significantly less.

Despite the more accessible size and price, VTL’s engineers sacrificed little of the essential technologies that have made the TL7.5 such a phenomenon. Hybrid tube/MOSFET technology, fully balanced circuit design, fully regulated and shielded power supplies and the highest quality parts combine for a sonic result that is nothing less than glorious. Exceedingly neutral and transparent sound is the hallmark of this design. Additionally, remote operation of all functions and true RS-232 bi-directionality allows the TL6.5 to integrate seamlessly into any modern music and home theater system.

For music lovers who insist upon the sophisticated technology of a flagship product, but want it in a smaller, more affordable package, the TL6.5 is the perfect choice. Its neutral, smooth, natural sound, extraordinary dynamic expression, and luxurious finish make this the ideal centerpiece for your system for many years to come. In applying the latest technology to the design of the TL7.5 Reference Preamplifier, we are proud to present this product to our most discerning customers who will appreciate the following differentiating features:

Larry Greenhill writing in Stereophile magazine said:
"The VTL TL-6.5 Signature performed brilliantly in my system, revealing dynamic contrasts both subtle and bold, holographic soundstaging, and solid, deep, tuneful bass. Its remote quickly controlled the TL-6.5 from any convenient listening position in my living room, and the preamp's front-panel display is readable from 10' away. The TL-6.5's ergonomics are the best I've encountered for a preamplifier.

For all these reasons, I strongly recommend the TL-6.5 Signature.
It offers battleship reliability, faultless microprocessor control of tube operation, and extraordinary switching control as well as first-rate sound, a deep, wide soundstage, and driving dynamic contrasts.
Add the five-year warranty, and it's an irresistible high-end preamplifier."
