The VK-53SE is the finest single-chassis preamplifier ever offered by Balanced Audio Technology. It features a transformer-coupled, high-current, single gain-stage topology. The transformer-coupled outputs catapult the performance of this fully balanced, zero-feedback design to a higher level. These transformers replace BAT’s venerable Six-Pak of output capacitors with custom-designed amorphous core output transformers. Each is encapsulated within a mu-metal shield for the ultimate in signal purity and noise isolation.
