The VK-51SE Preamplifier is BAT's new jaw-dropping reference preamplifier. Redesigned from its predecessor - the legendary VK-50SE, the VK-51SE features a updated power distribution system, resulting in a silky smooth frequency response from top-to-bottom. This preamp must be heard to be believed!
Balanced Audio Technology is pleased to introduce the VK-42SE as a new reference in solid-state preamplifiers. The VK-42SE incorporates the same groundbreaking technology that first made its debut in Balanced Audio Technology's widely acclaimed VK-51SE tube preamplifier. The revised circuit topology of the VK-42SE incorporates proprietary oil capacitors in an all-new power supply SUPER-PAK to improve the transparency and top-to-bottom coherence of this class-leading preamplifier. This new SUPER-PAK augments a fully balanced all-MOSFET circuit design that uses a C-multiplier based power supply combined with Vishay resistors in critical signal path locations.

BAT VK-3ix Preamp
The VK-3iX's design is centered around the ability to preserve subtle musical nuance as well as it conveys musical pace and excitement. The VK-3iX relies upon BAT's tried and true Unistage® design to eliminate complex buffer or follower circuits. Vacuum tube current sources remain in the power supply to contribute to the VK-3iX's ability to portray the natural color and emotion of the musical performance. Just as in BAT's reference VK-51SE preamplifier, Vishay resistors are now incorporated into the series-pass element of the shunt volume control to provide a wonderful sense of transparency and top-end extension. The power supply of the VK-3iX delivers a sizeable increase in energy storage to offer a complementary increase in low-end heft and authority. The result is a top-to-bottom improvement in musical clarity and expression.

The Balanced Audio Technology VK-75SE/VK-150SE amplifiers establish a new standard fo transparency for tube amplification. This unique Special Edition design incorporates the 6H30 supertube. Operating in BAT's all-triode, fully balanced, zero-feedback topology, this driver tube feeds the power tubes a waveform of unprecedented fidelity. With this pristine signal, the virtues of the single-ended bridge design are multiplied, resulting in a presentation of the musical event that is astonishing in it's realism.

The VK-75SE is startlingly quiet. Instrumental timbres are rendered with effortless accuracy. Retrieval of the subtlest ambient information, coupled with the completely natural decay of musical tones, creates a spatial illusion constrained only by decisions in the recording booth. The VK-75SE's sound is virtually grainless, sharing the liquid ease of previous tube designs without their thickening of instrumental images. The VK-75SE sounds like no other amplifier, tube or solid-state. More than ever before, it sounds like no amplifier at all. Just music.

BAT VK-600 Amplifier
Balanced Audio Technology is pleased to introduce its new flagship for two-channel solid-state amplification in the stunning VK-600 power amplifier. With its powerful yet graceful industrial design, the VK-600 power amplifier becomes a perfect complement to Balanced Audio Technologys universally praised lineup of preamplifiers, including BATs flagship VK-51SE.

For the ultimate in flexibility, the VK-600 can be ordered as either a stereo amplifier or monoblock VK-600M version.

The VK-220 balanced power amplifier design is based upon the award winning topology used in BAT's reference VK-6200 multi-channel power amplifier. With 125 watts per channel available into eight ohm loads, and 250 watts per channel into four ohm loads, the VK-220 power amplifier is a compact power-house! The dynamic authority of the VK-220 is evident on even difficult speaker loads, and provides an unstrained ease on even the most demanding recordings. For even greater dynamic authority, add the optional VK-220 BAT-PAK to increase the power supply energy storage by a factor of five!
