BALANCED AUDIO TECHNOLOGY VK-225SE POWER AMPLIFIER
SECOND-GENERATION SUPERPAK ADDS UNCOMMON SOULFULNESS, ENGROSSING DEPTH
Boosted by the addition of Balanced Audio Technology’s second-generation SuperPak, the VK-225SE power amplifier reproduces music’s inner beauty with uncommon soulfulness and engaging depth. Pairing uninhibited sonics and authoritative power in a compact design—and based the award-winning topology in BAT’s reference VK-6200 multichannel power amp—it delivers 150 watts per channel into eight ohms and 300 watts per channel into four ohms. VK-225SE confidently drives any speaker and touts an extremely low noise floor. Lending unstrained ease to the most demanding recordings, VK-225SE’s superb dynamic control shines even on difficult loads.
ADVANCED POWER SUPPLY, CLASS AB OUTPUT STAGE, EASY OPERATION
VK-225SE’s revised power supply incorporates the same second-generation oil-filled capacitors used in every BAT flagship product. They increase the high-quality filtering capacity by an order of magnitude over the first-generation oil parts. Listeners benefit by hearing a dramatic lowering of the noise floor and a grain-free, textured, and sublimely refined portrayal of harmonics. VK-225SE also features carefully selected bipolar transistors in its discrete Class AB output stage. Each channel uses six high-power bipolar output devices, boasting a combined rating of 1380 watts. A sophisticated protection circuit ensures trouble-free operation.
HEAR GORGEOUS MUSICAL DETAIL AND THE DEEP SILENCE BETWEEN NOTES
A fully balanced input stage, zero global feedback, and discrete components give VK-225SE sought-after sonic advantages. Its circuit topology achieves ultra-wide bandwidth, lowers noise, and minimizes stress on the power supply. The second-generation SuperPak adds to the textural finesse and tonal purity. As such, VK-225SE excels at reproducing the rich colors and powerful emotions of your favorite performances. It conveys both the finest musical detail and deep silence between the notes. These attributes combine with VK-225SE’s superb dynamic ability, yielding outstanding virtues seldom found in such a compact and affordable design. All you need to do is listen!
