Default BAT VK-P12SE phonostage

Has anyone had the opportunity to hear this? It uses output transformers. It sure looks tasty.

Very interested in this phono stage and folks' comments. Just unfortunate that you have to open the case to change the settings.

I use both the VK-P10 and VK-P10se w/superpak. Love them both, and would love to own the P-12se w/superpak. I leave the tops off both all the time so inside changes are a non issue for me. I can reach right in to the rack without having to un-hook everything. Are you planning on switching cartridges a lot?
I've used cartridges below .2 output and this is still a dead quiet phonostage even using over 80db of gain.
