Beautiful black and silver BAT VK250SE power amp in near-mint condition. The amp was purchased from an authorized BAT dealer in Connecticut. Very lightly used in a smoke and pet-free home. Along with the BAT VK-52SE preamp (ALSO FOR SALE),
it played beautiful transparent music.
The revised power supply of the VK-250SE incorporates the same second-generation oil capacitors used in Balanced Audio Technology’s Reference REX preamplifier. These second-generation oil capacitors increase the oil filtering capacity by an order of magnitude over the first-generation oil capacitor bank. The result is a dramatic lowering of the power amplifier’s noise floor combined with a grainless yet textured and more refined portrayal of instrumental textures.

I had VK-200 and VK-250SE. The latter is much more refined in the upper frequencies, with a better low-level resolution, a deeper soundstage, and more powerful bass.
250SE top end was more refined; fleshier mids; equal bass control w/ better definition; more space, air, presence with a bigger, more open presentation. The VK-200 is grainier – especially up top with a flatter soundstage, less vivid midrange, more constricted overall –IMO.
