The older model vk40se was noticeably more blured and resulting sound was less dynamic but it was still listenable. In my system, balanced cables worked much better than single ended. if you are after very analytical and 'metalic' sound signature, this is not it. Hope this helps a little.
BAT SS pre-amps are outstanding! 20 series is surprisingly good for the $$ and the 43SE is tough to beat. Victor does SS as well or better than he does tubes! IMHO
