VR120 Power Amplifier
The VR120 power amplifier will bring out all the dynamic impact, detail and musical realism your speakers are capable of delivering. It boasts 225 Watts per channel in stereo mode and over 400 WPC when bridged into mono – regardless of AC Mains voltage fluctuations. The VR120 features the same groundbreaking and patent pending PURE DC-4-EVR ultracapacitor power supply technology as our award-winning LIO, to free you from the sonic compromises of “dirty” AC power — without the need for an external power conditioner.
“It is a rare breed of power amplifier design that merges high current speaker-driving dynamic muscle, with music presented “in the most effortless, grainless, natural, detailed, visceral, musically exciting way.”

Ultracapacitor Power Supply
VR120’s patent-pending, ultracapacitor power supply (“PURE DC-4-EVR”) completely isolates all audio circuitry from the noise and voltage fluctuations of AC mains power – without the need for an external power conditioner. Music flows from the VR120 in the most natural way, free of grain and background noise. Its vanishingly low output impedance ensures the highest possible current to deliver stunning transient attack with bass that is extended and impactful, yet tight and well defined.
Inputs and Outputs
- Cardas single-ended (RCA) and Neutrik balanced (XLR) line input jacks.
- A Stereo/Mono switch on the rear panel for switching between stereo or bridge-mono mode configurations.
- Cardas Rhodium speaker binding posts are used for LEFT, RIGHT, and MONO channels.
Power Output Stage
VR120’s Class AB MOSFET output stage combines high resolution with low output impedance to command even very difficult speaker loads effortlessly – regardless of the quality of the incoming AC voltage.
