The VTL IT-85 Integrated Amplifier is designed for those who seek the simplicity of a single chassis system, but with the performance of separates. Designed with a fully active preamplifier stage, the IT-85 delivers a hearty 60 watts per channel with the sonic characteristic that is similar to our well regarded ST-85 Stereo amplifier and the TL2.5 preamplifier combination - fast, musical 3-D sound, and solid bass support that VTL is known for.

The IT-85 is designed to accommodate future upgrade -- when you are ready to add a subwoofer, separate pre- or power amplifier, surround processor or headphones to your system, the IT-85's many different output stage configurations can be easily and painlessly re-configured, often with just the flip of a switch.


High power, capable of driving a wide range of loudspeakers.

Remote controlled volume and mute with custom remote wand, automatic mute on power up and down.

All-tube full preamp line stage, with buffered pre-out and regulated B+.

Amplifier-driven headphone output, front panel selector switch (pre out mutes on headphone insertion).

No-load automatic shutdown in headphone circuit.

Front panel selectable direct amp in / processor loop input.

Built-in upgrade path for precisely gain-matched horizontal biamping with VTL ST-85.

Extruded machined aluminum front panel in silver (standard) or black, and protective cage.

High quality VTL ST-85 power supply components and output and power transformers.

Easily accessible individual output tube bias measurement and adjustment points on top deck.

Angled-back chassis for easy access of inputs and outputs, sturdy quality structural fit and finish.

Detachable IEC power cord, high quality gold-plated VTL custom binding posts and RCA jacks.
