Ypsilon VPS-100 should be Class A+

There are times when errors sneak up on you. Such was the case in the October issue's "Recommended Components" listing, when I inadvertently and incorrectly downgraded the superb Yypsilon VPS-100 phono preamp - Mikey has bought the review sample - from A+ to A (p.67). The rating was correct in the original database but I cut-n-pasted the entry into the wrong category in the typesetting file.

My apologies to Ypsilon, US distributor AAimports and to readers alike. The VPS-100 will be back in Class A+ in our April 2011 listing.

So, when do we get class A++ or A Honors? (AP Components?)

Is there a class A- ?

B+ ?

Class A through D could yield 12 classes, making the ratings much more "precise."

In Britain, they might consider A+ to represent. "keen component!"

There is only one higher rating in the US: "Doesn't suck too bad!" Which translates in the UK to "Not bad at all."
