Believe that's it. Dual 6H30 tubes of the SE version. The 6922 has four tubes and the solid-state (horrors ) none.

The balanced design makes it so beautifully symmetrical. It's gotten great reviews and I imagine you're going to be very pleased. Congratulations, Glenn.

Any chance we can get a BAT forum for us BAT'ers?

Glen- I had a BAT VK300XSE in my system for a year or so. It was an amazing component and I wish I still had it. I moved on to separates from another manufacture. I am sure you will enjoy it!

Now that the new BAT Website is up it appears you are correct. No more integrated amp. I'll bet they will build one out of parts-on-hand for a while, but would be nice to see an updated new one. Too bad.

My dealer has been telling me that Balanced Audio was probably going to stop making the VK-300x integrated. It's a little sad that it looks like this is finally coming to pass.

I've had a VK-300xSE in my system for a little over five years now, and I love it. For most of this time, I've used it as an integrated amp. For the last year or so, I've used the VK-300xSE as a pre-amp, driving a VK-250SE power amp. This is a fine combination.

When I purchased the VK-250SE, I also auditioned the VK-42SE pre-amp, but I actually favored using the VK-300xSE as the pre. A few months ago, I auditioned the VK-32SE pre. While I liked the VK-32SE better (even with five year old tubes in it), I couldn't bring myself to swap out the VK-300xSE. I'm still pondering the VK-32SE (or the VK-33SE), but for now I'm in no hurry. The VK-300xSE is wonderful.
