I’ve been struggling since yesterday to know what TVC stands for. I thought maybe Thermionic Valve Controller at first, but is it Transformer Volume Control?  

That's the blighter. Although Max Townsends version is actually an autoformer not a transformer. Another damn term...

One of my favourite active preamps is the Icon Audio LA5 TX. As an aside this uses output transformers which is unusual for a preamp but helps it to drive long cables runs. It also uses the 6SN7 valves which are possibly my favourite signal valve for sweetness and bass. And for the ATC speakers it had XLR balanced outputs.
