Balanced Audio Technology VK-3iX Line Preamp [Expired]


no longer for sale

*PRICE REDUCED*  Up for sale is my Balanced Audio Technology VK-3iX line-stage preamplifier in excellent condition. This preamp has a very sweet sound, with an exceptionally black background, beautiful mid-range, full low end, and very sweet high end. The inputs are two XLR and three stereo RCA connections, while the outputs include Stereo XLR and RCA connections. The tube complement is four 6922 (gain stage) and two 6V6. This model does not have a remote.  Cosmetically, the piece as close to flawless as can be. $1400, plus the actual cost of shipping and 4% for PayPal fees.

From the Stereophile review: "BAT's stated audio design approach is to have true balanced circuits from input to output, high-energy power supplies, simple signal paths, and little or no global negative feedback. (For the VK-3iX, the global negative feedback is zero; for the VK-55, it's 6dB.) According to Victor Khomenko, the VK-3iX continues the tube-based differential circuits first implemented in the VK-5, with massive power supplies and symmetrical high-voltage rails. Like BAT's reference VK-51SE preamp, the VK-3iX has a single gain stage with no buffer or cathode follower circuits, and a shunt volume control using high-quality Vishay resistors."
