Excellent condition BAT VK-250 with BAT-PAK depth charge oil capacitors. solid state stereo power amp. I purchased this amp new in 2005 and have cared lovingly for it since then. It was used to power my beloved Martin Logan Ascent speakers and always had plenty of grunt for them. It provides 150W per channel at 8 ohms and will double that into 4 ohms. My ML speakers actually had a much lower impedence at higher frequencies and this amp never flagged. It has been kept safe in a dedicated listening room. The amp has never had any problems whatsoever. I can assist with local or regional delivery if my asking price is met. I have the original box and manuals.
Balanced Audio Technology is pleased to introduce the stellar new VK-250 solid state power amplifier. With its compact and graceful industrial design, the VK-250 power amplifier becomes a perfect complement to Balanced Audio Technology's universally praised lineup of preamplifiers, from the VK-3i through the VK-51SE.
For the ultimate in flexibility, the VK-250 can be ordered as either a stereo amplifier or as a monoblock in the VK-250M version. Balanced Audio Technology also provides a transparent upgrade path that allows the owner of a stereo VK-250 to easily convert to a monoblock at any point in time. Just add a second VK-250M to enjoy the benefits of true monoblock operation. To continue BAT's reputation for providing the highest levels of refined energy storage, an innovative BAT-PAKTM option is available. The VK-250 BAT-PAKTM incorporates the knowledge gained during the design of the highly acclaimed VK-31SE and VK-51SE line-stage preamplifiers as well as VK-P10SE SUPER-PAKTM. With both greater energy storage and the use of large Depth Charge style oil capacitors for power supply bypass, the VK-250 BAT-PAKTM combination provides a top-to-bottom coherence that is the very essence of musicality.
The elegant signal path follows the Balanced Audio Technology purist approach of using zero negative feedback to achieve the design goals of wide bandwidth and circuit linearity. Just as in BAT's newly introduced flagship VK-600, only two gain blocks are employed. Each gain stage incorporates exemplary Caddock loading resistors for a more transparent insight into the musical event. Contact your local BAT dealer or distributor for more information. All you need to do is listen.
