Cosmetically, the front panel received an upgrade so that it resembles other models in the current lineup of Vincent Audio integrated amplifiers.

On the inside, the SV-237MK II features the company’s acclaimed hybrid design that was featured in the original SV-237, offering the rich, natural-sounding audio associated with vacuum tubes while providing the power and control of solid-state electronics.

Tip: The SV-237MK II uses One 12AX7 (aka ECC83) and two 6N1P vacuum tubes.

SV-237MK II also adds Bluetooth 5.0, allowing listeners to wirelessly stream high-resolution audio files to the integrated amplifier from compatible devices, such as smartphones. 

The  SV-237 MKII can output a lot of power (refer to specifications section below), but when used in ‘Class A‘ mode, it outputs 10 watts per channel. This gives instruments and vocals a warm, natural texture associated with solid-state electronics sold at a significantly higher price.

The DAC  is designed to bring out the best in compact discs as well as several digital file formats, such as WAV, FLAC, APE, LPCM, MP3, AAC, AC3, and WMA

Tip: The SV-237 MKII also provides separate sets of RCA Record Out and Preamp Outputs. You don’t see Record Out connections too much anymore.
