PURIST APPROACH, TRUE DUAL-MONO DESIGN
The fully balanced VK-655SE power amplifier is the ultimate expression of BAT amplifier engineering. Available in stereo or monoblock configuration, it features only two gain blocks in a high-power, zero feedback, and purely symmetrical design. A true dual-mono component featuring independent channel assemblies, power transformers, and separate power cords for the left and right channels, the purist approach-based VK-65SE yields maximum soundstage width and depth. Finite micro-and macro-dynamics are reproduced with ease. A revised power supply incorporates the same second-generation oil-filled capacitors used in BAT’s flagship REX II preamplifier, dramatically lowering the noise floor and portraying grain-free, extra-refined harmonics.
MASSIVE POWER: ENOUGH ENERGY TO LIFT MOST SPEAKERS OFF THE GROUND
The VK-655SE’s elegant signal path follows BAT’s purist approach of using zero negative feedback to achieve the goals of wide bandwidth and circuit linearity. Its circuit is based entirely on N-Channel MOSFET devices. With a high-current design that offers a robust 600 watts per channel into a four-ohm load, the VK-655SE easily drives most any speaker ever made. The monoblock version doubles these figures, and contains a whopping 1800 joules of energy storage—enough to lift most speakers over one meter off the ground! High power—combined with high-energy storage—produce the dynamic sound that is a BAT hallmark.
SUBLIME MUSIC REPRODUCTION: SPEED, SLAM, DYNAMICS
Dynamic responsiveness remains the recognizable difference between live and reproduced music. The VK-655SE couples quickness, slam, and dynamic range with an extended, deep soundstage and exquisite fidelity to the timbre and texture of instruments and voices. Indeed, the sound of the VK-655SE and REX II power amplifiers converge upon the same ultimate goal: sublime reproduction of music independent of the devices employed. By utilizing only the highest-grade parts throughout, BAT allows the VK-655SE to yield supremely transparent insight into any music you play. It’s time you experienced such beguiling sonics for yourself.
