Hey, Randy!

New member here....

I joined AA after reading your BAT journey. Nice read and great setup.

I'm nearing the end of my BAT journey....

I auditioned a full BAT setup a decade ago and absolutely loved it. I purchased the VK-5i preamp but got side-tracked by the Krell FPB 300 amp, Mark Levinson #39 cd player and Energy Veritas 2.8 speakers.

I like the speakers and cd player but the Krell has to be tamed by my BAT VK-5i.

Well, it's time to upgrade....

I purchased a used BAT VK-600SE and should have it next week. I'm hunting for a used VK-52SE.

Once I recover from the hit to my wallet, my Energy Veritas 2.8's will be replaced by the Andra II, Vandersteen 5A or Sophia 2.

I'm anxious to get the equipment set up. I waited too long to retire the Krell.

Anyway, I plan on using a Logitech 900 remote to power the equipment on/off. As you know, the VK-600SE uses a 12v Trigger. I don't have any gear that can turn the 600SE on (why didn't BAT place a trigger on their preamp?). Are you aware of a reasonably priced 12v trigger I can attach to the 600SE and remotely trigger with the Logitech 900 remote?

Also, what's your opinion on the new 655SE amp?

Thanks in advance for your reply.
