SOLD: FS: Balanced Audio Technology VK-60 Amplifier

Recommended Posts

Item: BAT VK-60 Power Amp
Location: 2148 Sydney
Price: $3000
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: need a SS amp for my speakers
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:

The amp has just been completely re-tubed at a cost of $600 so good to go. I was surprised and very pleased at how good this amp is when I first listened to it. It sounds like a SET amp but with the drive of push pull and 60 watts to drive most speakers. The midrange and top end is the most balanced Ive heard, just beautiful.

Ive never owned any BAT products before but the build quality is top notch. The current model of this amp is the VK-75 which sells for approx $20,000 in Australia.

 I don't have the original packaging but could ship although a local sale is preferable as this amp is big and heavy.

@psychometrics1 sure thing

 

It has 3 different taps to connect speakers which are labelled:

 

low 3 - 4 ohm

med 4 - 6 ohm

high 6 - 8 ohm

 

inputs are balanced only but I have some converters if required. I new someone would want a pic of the rear but I was dodging moving the beast lol

Hey Ben, what year is this baby?

cheers, Ivan

Hi Ivan, I don’t know but safe to say it’s over 10 years old.

Can tell you it still looks like new inside though. I don’t think it’s had much use.

Love to...did u say you'd cover the airfare?

How's your hearing in general? 😉

 

I should add that the 6C33C power tubes were tested and current matched when replaced and have approx 12 hrs on them.

According to the Stereophile review, the VK-60 was produced up to 2000.
