That result is not surprising to me because of the following: when I moved the amp from the floor to the dedicated amp stand I heard a substantial improvement in the sound. Thus, there was not much left to fix.

What platforms did you use? Were they DIY? And what did you use between the platforms and the floor, Randy?
Merry Christmas! :)

They were DIY by a member here, but I am embarrassed to say I have forgotten his handle. I use spikes between the amp stand and a Berber carpet/pad over concrete.

Hi, Randy.

Sorry for the late reply - been out of town working over the past two years and I'm just catching a breather....

No, we're still renovating the entire house and the sound room is being used as storage. We hope to complete the renovations by September, then on with taming the acoustics in the new sound room.

I'm looking for a used 600se right now. I see a normal 600 but I don't want to mix the amps.

How are things going with you and your system?

Hey, Ray, it's time for your 2016 report!

Hello BAT Fan
 
Hello BAT fan, I am also a BAT fan. I really like their products and customer service. Victor, Vladimir and Geoff are very kind to talk to. I live nearby and visit them whenever I need their help.

Glad to find a BAT dedicated sub-forum. I recently bought a pair of VK-55 Mono Blocks to go with my VK-3iX Pre. I have the Bats pushing 110Watts of pure power into my Thiel CS3.6's. They have never sounded better.

Also, Geoff has been more than helpful with any question I have thrown his way....I can't wait to buy the next piece of BAT gear for my system.

I am delighted to meet another BAT lover!

New BAT lover here. My search for a balanced pre-amp, preferably with dual XLR outputs led me to the VK-42SE. Very few pre-amps fit this description at a reasonable price range.

I'm putting its dual outputs to good use, one to a moon neo 330a power amp and the other to a Linnenberg Maestro headphone amp. Really love the flexibility to use my headphones with my front-end whenever the situation prevents me from listening to the speakers.

Am further considering an upgrade to the VK-53SE (with even more XLR outputs, hurray!), and/or a BAT solid state power amp. Would anyone have experience using the BAT amps with Verity speakers? Mine are the Parsival Anniversaries.

Would love the hear from other BAT fans. Thanks!
