    BALANCED AUDIO TECHNOLOGY VK-3000SE Integrated Amplifier

     

     

    Sublime power, rich musicality

    Balanced Audio Technology’s VK-3000SE integrated amplifier embodies simplicity without compromise. At last, audiophiles can get no-limits musical finesse and exceptional performance in one convenient package. Competitive with reference-level separates, the VK-3000SE provides a robust 150 watts per channel into 8-ohm loads and doubles this output into 4-ohm loads. Combine such ability with BAT’s vacuum-tube preamplifier section—based on the same reference 6H30 SuperTube used in the flagship REX 3 preamplifier—and you get sublime power matched with richly textured musicality. Sonically open, delicate, and smooth, the VK-3000SE allows any space to breathe with exquisite music.

     

    Thoroughbred design, signature look

    Many integrated amplifiers offer the benefit of convenience, but little else. The VK-3000SE is different. Its circuitry and build maintain the uncompromisingly high caliber found in BAT’s flagship components. The output stage employs a symmetrical bipolar design. The preamplifier section uses the same 6H30 SuperTube Unistage design topology employed throughout BAT’s Special Edition tube preamplifiers—right down to the paper-in-oil signal capacitors. To literally cap it off, the VK-3000SE features a gorgeous aluminum top cover and side panels that add to its signature look.

     

    Ultimate versatility, optional phono card

    Incredibly versatile, the VK-3000SE can be configured to meet almost any system need. A programmable user interface allows you to easily mate the VK-3000SE with a home-theater system. Change sources, switch polarity, or fade music with just one touch—all from the included machined-aluminum remote control. Add in the optional phono module, and you’ll obtain superb reproduction of your analog record collection from either moving-magnet or low-output moving-coil cartridges. Use the vacuum-tube preamplifier outputs to control an amplifier in a second room.
