DESIGN ACCOMMODATES UP TO SIX DISCRETE 200-WATT AMP MODULES

Balanced Audio Technology’s groundbreaking VK-6200 multichannel power amplifier satisfies the demands of the most sophisticated home-theater system while simultaneously playing music with the characteristic open, uncompromised sound that has become a BAT hallmark. Until now, the compromises required to fit several channels of amplification into a single chassis have restricted sound quality—even for high-end components. Competitors’ best designs often require an expensive commitment to buy a “fully loaded” configuration. The VK-6200 is different. Its modular design accommodates up to six discrete 200-watt amplifier modules. Fully balanced, the VK-6200 can also be purchased in any configuration—from two to six channels.

The Balanced Audio Technology VK-6200 multi-channel power amplifier redefines the category by satisfying the demands of the most sophisticated home theater system, while simultaneously playing music with the characteristic open and uncompromised sound that has become the BAT hallmark.   And like all Balanced Audio Technology components, the VK-6200 power amplifier is based upon innovations that explore untapped possibilities for a product of its type.  From its modular design to its balanced multi mono-block construction, the VK-6200 power amplifier is yet another stellar example of BAT’s engineering prowess.

Modular Design

Until now, the compromises required to fit several channels of amplification into a single chassis have limited sound quality, even for high-end components.  The best of competitors’ designs often require an expensive commitment to buy a “fully loaded” configuration from the start.  The VK-6200 is different.  Its modular design accommodates up to six discrete 200-watt amplifier modules.  The Balanced Audio Technology VK-6200 power amplifier can be purchased in any configuration – from two to six channels.  Additional channels can be added later as needed and installed in the home. 

Multi – Mono-block Musicality

In most home theater amplifiers, to conserve space and parts cost, all the amplifier channels share a single power supply transformer.  Not in the VK-6200.  Robust, stable power is indispensable to fine sound quality, so each of the VK-6200’s power amplifier modules bears its own dedicated power supply with a huge, 700VA toroidal transformer.  Driven by this rock-solid power source, BAT’s renowned zero-feedback, balanced topology delivers consistent and captivating performance no matter how the amplifier is configured.  The sound is open and delicate, with effortless dynamic capability - pure BAT.  Delivering 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 400 watts per channel into 4 ohm loads, the BAT VK-6200 is a true reference product.  The Balanced Audio Technology VK-6200 power amplifier combines musical finesse and theater-sized performance - without compromise.

Ultimate Flexibility

In its two-channel configuration, the BAT VK-6200 often outperforms reference-level audio amplifiers from the competition.  In multi-channel mode, the VK-6200 provides an ideal solution for power bi-amping, tri-amping, or multi-room audio systems where exacting sound quality is required.  Imagine matching a three-channel VK-6200 with our VK-655SE or REX II mono-blocks to create a five channel home theater - a truly world class reference system!  Apply the VK-6200 in a four-channel configuration for the ultimate in power bi-amping for two-channel stereo.  Fully load the VK-6200 with six channels to create a reference-quality 6.1 channel theater.  This extraordinary versatility and rational upgrade path sets the VK-6200 apart, and extends the tradition that has won Balanced Audio Technology unprecedented customer loyalty.

Summary

The Balanced Audio Technology VK-6200 combines power, finesse, and grace into a modular design that provides the ultimate in flexibility for configuring any home theater or two-channel system for reference level performance.  This world-class performance is matched by the VK-6200’s elegant industrial design with a faceplate sculpted from three massive blocks of aluminum to artfully mimic a BAT’s wings from above.  We invite you to visit your BAT audio specialist to hear the extraordinary performance of the VK-6200 for yourself.

POWER TO SPARE: DEDICATED POWER SUPPLY FOR EACH POWER AMP MODULE

In most home-theater amplifiers, all amplifier channels share a single power supply transformer to conserve space and parts cost. Not so the VK-6200.  Each of the unit’s power amplifier modules bears its own dedicated power supply with a huge, 700VA toroidal transformer. Driven by this rock-solid power source, BAT’s zero-feedback, balanced topology furnishes consistent and captivating performance no matter how the amplifier is configured. The sound is open and delicate, with effortless dynamic capability. Delivering 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 400 watts per channel into 4 ohms, the VK-6200 is a genuine state-of-the-art product.

THE ULTIMATE IN FLEXIBILITY

In its two-channel configuration, the VK-6200 often outperforms reference-level audio amplifiers. In multichannel mode, it serves as an ideal solution for power bi-amping, tri-amping, or multi-room audio systems where exacting sound quality is required. Imagine matching a three-channel VK-6200 with our VK-655SE or REX II monoblocks to create a five-channel home theater. Or, apply the VK-6200 in a four-channel configuration for the ultimate in power bi-amping for two-channel stereo. Want to fully load the VK-6200 with six channels to create a standard-setting 6.1-channel theater? No problem. Such extraordinary versatility and rational upgrade path mean you’ll love the VK-6200 in every imaginable application.
