November 21’s Hi-Fi Choice magazine is positively glowing about BAT’s VK-3500 hybrid integrated amp, which balances tube finesse with solid state girth. It says: “Paul Oakenfold’s ‘Save The Last Trance For Me’ taken from his second LP, 2006’s ‘A Lively Mind’ comes straight out the gate at full-throttle…yet this slab of euphoria is peppered with surprisingly delicate touches, such as an isolated high-pitch woodblock that echoes serenely right-of-centre. And with a track where the lower frequencies are less prominent, the integrated is able to shift gear just as effortlessly…the recording sounding utterly spine-tingling throughout!”
