DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

There are indications of high-end qualities—even before you listen or take off the cover. The KC Vibe uses a 48 volt external power supply to provide a huge margin for extensive filtering and isolation. There are also machined, gold plated and teflon insulated audio jacks. With the cover removed, you will see the signature Sutherland circuit board layout aesthetic.

A basic turntable produces a low level signal. It must be amplified and equalized before going to a line level input (sometimes labeled AUX) of a preamplifier or receiver.That is exactly what the KC VIBE will do for you. The small signal from your turntable goes to the IN jacks. The larger, amplifier signal leaves the OUT jacks and goes to your line level preamplifier.There is also, generally, a grounding wire coming from the turntable. It connects to the ground screw on the back of the KC VIBE.
