 Product Notes The VTL IT-85 Integrated Amplifier is designed for those who seek the simplicity of a single chassis system, but with the performance of separates. Designed with a fully active preamplifier stage, the IT-85 delivers a hearty 60 watts per channel with the sonic characteristic that is similar to our well regarded ST-85 Stereo amplifier and the TL2.5 preamplifier combination - fast, musical 3-D sound, and solid bass support that VTL is known for.

The IT-85 is designed to accommodate future upgrade -- when you are ready to add a subwoofer, separate pre- or power amplifier, surround processor or headphones to your system, the IT-85's many different output stage configurations can be easily and painlessly re-configured, often with just the flip of a switch.

Hand built in California with the proven VTL quality, the IT-85 will give you lasting value and listening pleasure for years to come

The Absolute Sound said this when they awarded the Editors Choice Award to the IT 85 in 2011:

The VTL IT-85 bathes music in a warm, golden glow that’s hard to resist. While it is not the most powerful integrated amplifier, the IT-85 provides a large soundstage and effortless mids and highs. No other integrated in its price range comes close to offering as musical and pure a sound.
