We have always enjoyed BAT power amps and the VK-250 that you see here continues our appreciation for this wonderful range of amplifiers. The VK-250 is a fully balanced, more powerful descendant of the VK-200 (which we had sold earlier). In 8 ohms, it puts out 150W and 300W in 4 ohms (versus 100W and 200W in the VK-200). The bigger power output made the difference when we had to drive more current hungry speakers or had to play a soundtrack at a louder volume to fill the room. Sonically, it shared many of the same attributes we heard in the VK-200 – smooth, transparent and politely dynamic. Paired with our VK-50 and VK-50SE preamps, they formed a magical partnership of tubes and solid state that will rival similar combinations that cost two or even three times as much.
Cosmetically, it is in very nice shape. Minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We do not have the original box but will securely pack it for safe shipping.
