A Special Edition version of BAT’s VK-P12 phonostage, VK-P12SE includes numerous engineering improvements to offer greater information retrieval and supreme musical presentation. The first gain stage is completely revised to provide a substantially lower noise floor. In addition to the transformer-coupled output transformers, a reconfigured output stage incorporates four high-gain 6C45 tubes. They provide high-current and low-output impedance, establishing superb drive and crystalline transparency. These enhancements result in a phonostage with improved silence in the quietest musical passages, unfettered dynamic ease, and a grand sense of scale. For listeners that may want even more performance, VK-P12SE is fully upgradeable to the VK-P12SE SuperPak.
