BAT's VK-33 preamplifier incorporates changes to its power supply formerly reserved for Special Edition models. New SE power-supply transformers provide marked increases in dynamics and speed. In addition, the signal in the VK-33 is transmitted through only one gain stage. As such, it’s free from the negative artifacts attributable to both extremes of modern preamplifier designs: passive preamplifiers at one end of the spectrum and multistage, buffered active circuits at the other. The UnistageTM circuit provides the ultimate simplicity of amplifying the incoming signal only once, using no global feedback to double-back on the straight-through signal integrity.
Building upon the heritage of our stellar VK-32 model, the new VK-33 preamplifier incorporates changes to its power supply formerly reserved for our Special Edition models. New SE power supply transformers, for example, provide a marked increase in dynamics and speed. Just as in the VK-33SE, VK-53SE and REX II models, a beautiful new industrial design complements the aesthetic design of this outstanding new preamplifier model.
