After much debate I am selling my BAT VK 51SE pre amp and VK 200 amplifier. Continuing the downsizing with the sale of the mancave gear. Great sounding combo when used with the SDA 2.3 or LSiM703 speakers. Was a big step up in clarity and bass compared to other gear. Comes with remote. Small ding on the front of the preamp. Amp face is clean. Remote has one ding on the corner. $4000 for the preamp, remote and amp. This price is reserved only for forum members with over 100 posts and in good standing. Others can buy them for $4500 for the pair. Price does not include shipping or PP fees.

    Just picked up your ad on Hi Fi shark. Where are you located? I am mostly interested in the pre-amp however I could manage to deal with both. I just registered on the Polk site but have good feedback on Audiogon and US and Canadian Audio Mart.

    Bikerboy, per chance are you located in the tri-State area?

    I'm in Seattle. I forgot to mention I have factory boxes for both.

    I live in Annapolis MD. Close to BAT home base. I have a 50SE I was going to give to my son. Also have pair of VK 60SE as my primary amps.

    Any consideration about selling them separately? I would be interested in the preamp as I posted last time.

    I sent you a message.

    Preamp and amp are still available. I've had several interested but still available. Let's try pricing them separately. Preamp is $3300 and the amp $700. I also didn't mention the preamp has the bat-pak upgrade.

    That’s the VK-200 I sold you. You should say that all the capacitors have been replaced, including Mundorf silver gold and oil caps in the output. The binding posts have been replaced with some CCRR Rhodium plated binding posts, and the Inlet power has been replaced with an Oyaide Inlet R rhodium plated inlet. And the XLR jacks have been replaced with Furutech FT-786F rhodium plated input jacks.

    This is a phenomenal sounding amplifier and for $700 is a great price.

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:
    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    Shipping quote to 28601 for the power amp please.

    Conradicles-I'll get that shipping cost for you tonight. It's a great sounding amp.
    Thanks Headrott for the additional info. I was in a hurry and meant to link the post where I bought it from you.
