Vinius audio - Depth Of Image - Timbre - Dynamics
Two professionals, two ultimate music enthusiasts. One of us creates and plays music and therefore knows how the instruments, voices and tracks should sound live as well as via an audio system. The other one, who constructs renowned cables, knows the technical and manufacturing complexities inside out.
You are the audiophiles interested in the possibility of adjusting volume in a way that provides ultimate transparency and is not an obstacle on the signal path – by which we mean music.
These are the advantages of TVC (Transformer Volume Control) – a magnetic-inductive adjustment utilizing a transformer. Instead of diving deep into the detailed technical considerations, we prefer the audio experience to convince our customers. However, we would like to briefly compare AVC and TVC as two competitive approaches.
In AVC, an autotransformer-based adjustment, potentiometers and resistor ladders act as resistance elements and reduce sound energy and lucidity. On the contrary, TVC eliminates sound flaws caused by shared chassis ground and the possibility of its’ loop. Although technically the impact on audio experience is evident, we would still like you to appreciate it yourselves.
We assure that at Vinius the selection of the best techniques is accompanied by impeccable execution. For example, transformers are coiled on 105mm cords and - unlike tiny parts available on the market and the ones used in AVC constructions – this scale provides realistic tonality. Above all, we pay particular attention to the phenomenon of directivity.
As commonly recognized by audophiles, the impact of each element – either conductor or dielectric – on the
Considering the complexity and laboriousness of work as well as the quality of carefully selected and oriented elements, the price of TVC-05 appears well-founded. Our paramount objective and greatest motivation is to let audiophiles feel awe and shivers listening as their favorite tracks sound like never before. system sound depends on its’ orientation. An optimal orientation is a prerequisite for the correctness of phase and timing, which ensures intonational fidelity, special realism of the soundstage and – thanks to the elimination of misalignments in the bandwidth scale – tonal coherence.
During the construction proces, all TVC-05 elements are thoroughly listened to from the aspect of directivity and precisely oriented – this includes magnet wires, sockets, knobs, screws and sheet metal enclosure. We determine the ultimate sound direction of the latter in the early phase, prior to its’ bending and eventual processing.
Considering the complexity and laboriousness of work as well as the quality of carefully selected and oriented elements, the price of TVC-05 appears well-founded. Our paramount objective and greatest motivation is to let audiophiles feel awe and shivers listening as their favorite tracks sound like never before.
