Well about a month ago I received a BAT VK500/BATPAK,and after unpacking and hooking up,it sounded great! However it kept popping the left channel fuses,so I had to send it into Vlad at BAT. He fixed the problem,and I've been in heaven ever since I got it back! Great guys at BAT! Big prop to FED-EX for pickin up the bill,as the guy I bought it from had shipping insurance,and swore it worked perfect when he shipped it.
Anywho,i've been doin alot of listening lately,and have been wondering what a different pre would sound like? I really like the idea of tryin to pair up the BAT sound with one of their pre's. Anybody have any experience with the BAT pre's? Open to other tube pre options also. Pre needs to be black,have a remote,and balanced inputs. Thanx for any/all suggestions good fellas!
