Ok. I have a BAT VK-P5 phono pre that has served me well for about ten years. It was great as a moving magnet or moving iron cartridge type pre, but doesn't have enough gain for a low output moving coil cartridge. I use a K&K Premium step up transformer and get excellent results with the BAT. It is built like a tank and seemingly, the tubes last forever. I changed all the tubes a couple of years ago, but kept the originals, as they measured great and I could not detect any differences with the replacements.

Has any used REL subwoofers with there BAT amps? They will be used off the speaker taps. I'm using the VK-150se tube amps

Coming back to BAT. I was forced to sell my system six years ago due to divorce. At the time was running a full BAT system including VK-D5SE Superpak, VK-P10SE Superpak, VK-52SE, VK-600SE with SME10/Lyra Skala and Wilson Sophia 2s . Just now getting back into the hobby. I purchased a brand new pair of Wilson Sophia 3s from an authorized dealer at 50% off and a second-hand VK-300xSE with phono. Will be using Ayre Codex initially as digital source. Hopefully will eventually add back an analog front end. Happy to be back!

Indeed. The system that sticks most in my mind is a pair of WATT/Puppy 8s driven by an all-tube BAT system at the NY show about 10yr ago. Still recall how impressive that was. Sold my VK-300xSE w/phono about six months ago. Victor at BAT told me the last time I was in there (they are under an hour away) that the NOS Soveit era 6H30s they sell are the "real deal" and will transform any piece of BAT gear that uses them. While I did not spring for a pair, I have recently gone with some Soviet era EL84 tubes for my Luxman integrated and they were a big step up in sonics, so the 6H30s that BAT sells could well do the same.

Received my second hand VK-300x SE. Sounds great but the front panel volume knob is non-functional. The remote control volume works. Will try to get refund from seller.

Received an email from Music Direct that BAT is offering a trade-in program.
