    BALANCED AUDIO TECHNOLOGY VK-56 Tube Power Amplifier

     

    Compact chassis, outstanding performance, stunning affordability

    The Balanced Audio Technology VK-56 represents the meticulous application of modern design principles to the development of a compact, affordable, and supremely easy-to-use vacuum-tube power amplifier that sets a new standard for musicality in its class. The result is a unique combination of fully balanced, all-triode design topology, automatic biasing of individual output tubes, and a marvelously simple upgrade path to monoblock operation—all in a chassis more compact than any previous BAT tube amplifier design. In addition, VK-56 is available with a silver color option that incorporates a silver front faceplate and matching rear arch.

     

    Features the same high-current tube as BAT’s flagship power amplifier

    Many BAT customers asked for a smaller and more affordable tube amplifier that meets our rigorous design standards while providing the breath-of-life-to-music characteristic of the BAT sound. VK-56 is the answer to their dreams. By using the same high-current dual-triode 6C33C-B tube employed in BAT’s flagship REX II power amplifier, VK-56 (55Wpc stereo, 110Wpc monoblock configuration) delivers the high-current kick required to drive even difficult low-impedance speaker loads. You can simply choose the stereo or monoblock version based upon your choice of speaker and room size. VK-56 can be upgraded to VK-56SE status at any time.

     

    Intelligent auto-bias design makes operation a cinch

    This power amplifier’s advanced engineering eliminates the traditional headache associated with most vacuum-tube power amplifiers—specifically, the constant need to set and readjust the proper bias of the output tubes—as VK-56 features an intelligent automatic bias design that adjusts for changing line voltage and aging tubes, with each output tube having its own dedicated bias circuit. The auto-bias circuit also ensures your VK-56 sounds wonderful within the first few minutes of listening. You’ll immediately experience the midrange clarity, power, and dynamics that have made BAT one of the most respected brands in high-end audio. All you need to do is listen!
