Technology is pleased to introduce the VK-42SE as a new reference in
The VK-42SE incorporates the same groundbreaking technology that first made its debut in Balanced Audio Technology's widely acclaimed VK-51SE tube preamplifier. The revised circuit topology of the VK-42SE incorporates proprietary oil capacitors in an all-new power supply SUPER-PAK to improve the transparency and top-to-bottom coherence of this class-leading preamplifier.
This new SUPER-PAK augments a fully balanced all-MOSFET circuit design that uses a C-multiplier based power supply combined with Vishay resistors in critical signal path locations. In addition to numerous circuit revisions, the BAT VK-42SE incorporates SIX-PAK capacitor modules in the output stage to substantially improve the low-end authority over that of the already impressive VK-40 preamplifier. The fully programmable user interface remains very easy to use and is still considered one of the finest in the industry. Finally, Balanced Audio Technology's latest industrial design, available in either silver/black or all black as shown, completes this exemplary preamplifier.
