BAT(Balanced Audio Technology) VK-51SE Tube preamp:
SALE IS PENDING !!!!!!!
Just tested, works PERFECT in every way. Dead quiet (means tubes & caps are working optimally)
With top of the line BAT-PAK, and top of the line oil capacitors !!
Built like an absolute TANK…..at 45 pounds. Remote could be used as an ASSAULT weapon....machined from solid block of aluminum.
Stereophile Class “A” RATED, and deservedly so. They absolutely RAVE about this preamp, and call it one the select few of the absolute best preamps made. MANY Audiophiles, in the know, would agree 100% with that statement. GOOGLE “Stereophile BAT VK-51se review”……and read it for yourself.
Used VERY little. I have only put on about 15-20 hrs of use on this unit. I have A LOT of gear, and like to rotate units IN/OUT of my system, for change of pace. It does EVERYTHING top class.
Rated an "8".... I rate VERY conservatively (see pics !)....MOST would rate this a "9". Absolutely AMAZING condition.
(Only balanced inputs & outputs, BUT single ended adapters are readily available online, and cheap too, thus allowing this to be used with single ended RCA sources, and amps.)
Buy from a seller of more than 14 years, with a PERFECT rating, with over 170 transactions !

PAYPAL & Credit Cards!!!! (paypal/credit card fees (less than paypal) fees, if any, are buyer's responsibility ), BUT will accept personal check from TOP rated Audiogoners, with great feedback (at my discretion)
Will ship International, but buyer is responsible for setting that up, and then email me the label(s)
Audiogon’s shipping estimator is usually low. At my discretion, I only charge actual costs, and may ask for the extra.
