Balanced Audio Technology VK-P10SE phono stage

The middle model in BAT’s P10 phono stage line features dual mono power transformers, making this component heavier and more substantial than most integrated amplifiers. Despite a full complement of tubes, this phono preamp sounds “dynamic and tonally accurate” with just a touch of romance. “The difference is in the subtlety,” we found, noting that the BAT epitomized finesse.
