Price reduced $200 from $3,000 to $2,800
Home renovation requires downsizing system.
I am the original owner and believe it is fair to say this amplifier is in very good condition having seen light use during my ownership. At most, it has been played for 2-3 hours once a month. This has been used with a BAT VK-31SE preamplifier and BAT VK 5DSE CCD Player through Sound Lab M-1 electrosatic speakers. From my perspective, the sound reproduction is completely lifelike and, when listening to my classical and jazz music, I hear all the squeaks, breaths and music one could imagine.
The asking price is $2,800 plus shipping and 3.5% if you use PayPal. Will also accept personal check, cash or pickup in Vermont. I am happy to try to answer any questions and can take more pictures. The serial # 025030057 and my memory is that I put the unit in use in early 2005.
Below are some related quotes from Balanced Audio Technology:
“With its compact and graceful industrial design, the VK-250 power amplifier becomes a perfect complement to Balanced Audio Technology's universally praised lineup of preamplifiers, from the VK-3i through the VK-51SE.
For the ultimate in flexibility, the VK-250 can be ordered as either a stereo amplifier or as a monoblock in the VK-250M version. Balanced Audio Technology also provides a transparent upgrade path that allows the owner of a stereo VK-250 to easily convert to a monoblock at any point in time. Just add a second VK-250M to enjoy the benefits of true monoblock operation.“
"The elegant signal path follows the Balanced Audio Technology purist approach of using zero negative feedback to achieve the design goals of wide bandwidth and circuit linearity. Just as in BAT's newly introduced flagship VK-600, only two gain blocks are employed. Each gain stage incorporates exemplary Caddock loading resistors for a more transparent insight into the musical event.”
