Default Upgrade Paths

Dear Mr. Khomenko:

Is there any way to upgrade a Bat-51se to a vk-53se? The website does not offer this upgrade but is it possible?

Also, are there plans to upgrade the Bat vk-42se?

Many thanks,

Robert

Hi Robert,

There is no such "official" upgrade on our price list, but if you contact us directly we might be able to work something out.

Regarding the 42SE - we always have things on our drawing board, but we only discuss them once and if they solidify and become reality.

Sincerely,

Victor

Hi Robert,

Best way to reach me is through email, I will need to ask you some specific questions about your unit first.

Regards,

Victor

Do the VK-53SE and the VK-33SE use the same output transformers? I'm trying to decide between upgrading my VK-32SE and saving up for a VK-53SE. That factor is one I'd want to consider.

Think I'm gonna upgrade my 32SE to the 33SE. The cost will be around $3500. That's a lot less than a brand new 33SE. I'll probably do the upgrade in the fall.

This is not really an upgrade, but I replaced all 12 of the aging 6 pack output caps in my VK-51se preamp with the newer version of the Jensen capacitors and the preamp sounds like a different preamp. I figure I was getting about 90% of what I am getting now in bass and dynamics. I bought them direct from Jensen.
