Yes, the BHK preamp and amps are that good. But before you pull the trigger you need to know this. When Bascom King was designing the BHK amps and preamp, he turned to Upscale Audio to try different tube types and get the voicing just where he wanted it. Of course using vintage new old stock (NOS) tubes could not be used for production, but we have an intimate knowledge and understanding of how to take an already incredible product even better. And not by a small margin.  

Upscale Audio is not just a large dealer, but the importer and distributor for PrimaLuna and Kiseki. Our buying power means that we will give you the best price, period. There is no such thing as some deal so special that you don't call us first. Do not make a move until you call Uncle Kevvy.  If you have a trade in, we need it and will give you top dollar!!

  
We found a very special tube made by Tungsram that Bascom King likes a lot. He should. They add a level of texture and sense of space that is incredible. BUT recently I found a small stash of them that are unique. They had been locked up in a warehouse in Serbia for over 50 years. We graded out them by only considering the ones that have the highest transconductance for longest life.  Then we look at the measurements and accepted only the ones with a triode balance of 5% or better.  We then tested them again, this time for gain, so the two halves of the tube amplify equally and required the same 5% balance.  If they pass that test, we put them in a moving coil phono stage with 60dB of gain and listen to them with headphones, carefully listening for both noise and microphony, to achieve the absolute blackest background.   

   
This tube we are calling the Tungsram BHK Select, and is not available to the public. We can offer you the regular Tungsram, but not these.

 

Every BHK power amp and preamp purchased from Upscale Audio will come with not only the guaranteed best price and also TWO SETS of Tungsram BHK Select *Free* in addition to the stock tubes.  You will get a product with a HUGE increase in performance for many many years.
