I was looking for an integrated capable of driving a wide range of speakers in a budget of 1000 Euros. My choice fell on the Vincent SV 226 MK2, for his character, and quality of manufacture quite impressive for the price. This receiver offers a fairly bodied restitution, with rather silky stamps. Listening is not lacking in weight and material. Rather soft and warm he does not forget the musical dynamics. Beautiful look a bit vintage, we must predict some space to accommodate it. Depth 48cm and 20kg on the scales. This hybrid device, preamp tubes, transistors amplification, was only 6 months in a careful individual who sold the 500 Euros. A deal! So yes, it is a German design made in China with all that that implies. But if such a product was manufactured in Europe, saw its components, its internal structure, it vaudrais 3000/3500 Euros in my humble opinion. An interesting choice that should not be forgotten ...
