VTL TL2.5i Preamplifier

  • Please Get in Touch for Pricing
  • Brilliant Tube Pre Amp with AV Bypass
  • Wonderful Tone & Texture
  • Optional Phonostage Module


The TL2.5i is an all tube preamplifier that has been very well thought out in terms of design. It offers 6 line level inputs, an optional internal phono stage, 2 pairs of outputs (one to your power amp, the other to a headphone amp perhaps?), an AV processor loop (to integrate into a surround system with ease).

The i in the name refers to an update which improved a number of components which has led to a dramatic jump forward in performance, the phono stage also received a respectable update with this i revision as well. Also a pair of gain switches have been added to the circuit giving increased flexibility.

The TL2.5i offers great value for money and delivers a real slice of proper high end performance and a glimpse of what is to come as you move up the range.
