BAT's website has more information about this trade-in deal, which seems to apply to all BAT dealers. They are giving the customer credit for up to 75% of the original retail value of the old gear.

Wonder why they are running this trade-in now, and how this affects their margins. And what happens to the old gear that's traded in?

Trade-In & Upgrade | Balanced Audio

Trade-In & Upgrade Program

Upgrade your system with the latest-generation components from BAT without having to pay full price by trading in your old BAT gear for up to 75% of its original retail value!

For example, trade-in your 20-year-old VK-5 preamplifier for up to $3,000 (original retail price : $4,000) towards a brand-new VK-33SE! There has never been an easier or more inexpensive way to upgrade.

Contact your closest BAT dealer for more information.
