BAT 300X Special Edition (SE) integrated amplifier [Reduced]

Recommended Posts

Item: BAT 300X Special Edition (SE) integrated amplifier
Location: Sydney
Price: $3,000 (reduced from $3,750; price to sell)
Item Condition: Brand New 
Reason for selling: Bought as a backup but no longer required
Payment Method: Bank transfer
Extra Info: New price $10K

I have up for sale my BAT 300X Special Edition (SE) integrated amplifier.  This is a fully loaded unit with 6H30 “Supertubes†+ the optional phono stage + optional VK-R3 solid aluminum remote control. It is mint condition (no dings or scratches), RRP just shy of $10K in this configuration (although US retail is $7K). Originally purchased from the Australian reseller so not grey marketed and always given rock solid performance.

 

For those unfamiliar with BAT or Balanced Audio Technology for short, they are a US based mid to high end company specializing in both valve and solid state audio equipment. They have a reputation for introducing the 6H30 Supertubes into high end audio. Their kit has the battleship build quality and the engineering prowess of a Russian nuclear sub. The designers are ex-Russian

I believe. I think of them as an alternative or road not taken to brands like Audio Research and Conrad Johnson.

 

The BAT 300X SE represents their one box solution which combines high end separates into one box without the compromise. Admittedly this is pretty standard story for many high end companies. What BAT brings to the table is a hybrid valve and solid state power (150w into 8 ohm) to combine the best of both. The BAT 300X is often compared against Pass Labs and Conrad Johnson integrated amps just shy of the absolute high end brands such as Vitus, Dartzeel, Boulder, etc.

 

To quote from BAT :- “Balanced Audio Technology is pleased to introduce our superlative new VK-300x integrated amplifier. The VK-300x is so versatile, beautiful, and powerful that it will define a new reference for integrated amplification. When we began this project, our goal was to design an integrated amplifier that could satisfy the needs of the world's most discriminating music lovers. The Balanced Audio Technology VK-300x exceeds our highest expectations in this regard, and can form the nucleus of the finest high-end music system. The VK-300x provides a robust 150 watts per channel into 8 Ohm loads and easily doubles this output into 4 Ohm loads.

 

Not only can the VK-300x form the nucleus for outstanding music reproduction, it can be configured to meet almost any system need. Add remote control for the ultimate in convenience. Specify the built-in phono module and you'll obtain superb reproduction of your analog record collection from either moving magnet or low output moving coil cartridges. Add the musical texture that only tubes can provide by specifying the optional 6922 tube-based front-end. Or choose the ultimate in sonic performance by adding the optional 6H30 SuperTube front-end gain stage. The extraordinary versatility of Balanced Audio Technology's VK-300x allows it to perform without peer and thus truly stand apart from the crowd.

 

Many integrated amplifiers offer the benefit of convenience and little more. The VK-300x is different by design. Its circuitry has the same caliber as those found in Balanced Audio Technology high-end components. The VK-300x output stage is a symmetrical bipolar design as used in our award winning VK-6200 multi-channel power amplifier. The VK-300x input stage is configured to the same high standards as our award winning preamplifier line. We are also proud to offer an optional 6H30 SuperTube Special Edition gain stage (based on the one found in the top-of-the-line VK-51SE preamplifier) complete with paper-in-oil signal capacitors. The VK-300x user interface (the same as on our preamplifiers) offers the superb flexibility and ease of use that has set the standard in the industry. Even the VK-R3 remote is machined from a solid block of aluminum. This is an integrated amplifier of preeminent design and pedigree.

 

The best part, if one can get over the sheer beauty of the VK-300x, is the way it sounds. The VK-300x is pure BAT. "Open", "delicate", "smooth" and "powerful" are words that come easily to mind when trying to describe its sonic characteristics. We can say without hesitation that the VK-300x is competitive with reference-level separates at up to three times the price. Finally, musical finesse and superb performance have been combined without compromise into one convenient package."

 

Also throwing in a spare pair of new Sovtek 6H30 Supertubes so unit can not only look new but sound new.

Hello,

 

Do you still have the BAT 300x?

 

Can you ship to USA or Mexico?

 

Regards

Sorry I completely missed your query Mikito but not keen to ship overseas. It's also a 240V unit by the way.

 

I've had a few queries about the availability and yes it's still available!
