BAT VK P-12
Dual-mono construction, balanced inputs, vacuum-tube current sources, enormous energy reserves, and a massive power supply push the VK-P12 to the forefront of the world’s finest phonostages. VK-P12 uses the same amorphous core output transformers employed throughout Balanced Audio Technology’s premier line of phonostages Complementing the unit’s all-tube zero-feedback design, a unique Flying RIAA circuit maximizes accuracy, brings the benefits of fully differential operation to the critical equalization stage, and delivers standard-bearing fidelity to the original recorded signal. The end result is a circuit that unlocks hidden performance in virtually any cartridge.
Low-output moving-coil cartridges are a forte of VK-P12. Most are easily handled easily by the phonostage’s direct mode. High-quality, built-in step-up transformers can be either used for cartridges with even lower output or to obtain an even lower noise flow. Internal switches allow you to adjust cartridge loading for capacitance and resistance, and provide low and high settings for preamplifier gain. Signal polarity is effortlessly changed via a front-panel balanced phase reversal switch. And you’ll never worry about energy. The VK-P12’s energy reserves exponentially exceed those found in competing products. By most any measure, this phonostage could be a sizeable power amplifier. Want more? Per BAT tradition, VK-P12 is fully upgradeable to the SE and SuperPak versions.
