The VK-255SE power amplifier represents Balanced Audio Technology‚Äôs hallmark out-of-the box approach to audio circuit design. Unlike most solid-state amplifiers that feature four or more gain stages in a high-feedback push-pull configuration, the VK-255SE features only two gain blocks in a high-power, zero feedback, and purely symmetrical design. Available as either a stereo or monoblock unit, the VK-255SE has the warmth and texture typically associated with the finest vacuum-tube designs combined with the dynamic capability of the best solid-state offerings.

The impressive execution of a brilliant design is often worth owning. In the case of the BAT VK-255SE, following such guidelines may very well may translate into the last amplifier you ever purchase‚Äîending a lifelong quest for the perfect combination of brute-force macrodynamics and intricate microdynamics. Offering 150Wpc into 8 ohms (300Wpc into 4), the VK-255SE delivers the warmth and texture of the finest vacuum-tube designs and dynamic capability of frequency extension of the best solid-state models. You‚Äôll experience the sublime reproduction of music no matter the source employed.
