If you like MUSIC, you will like the VK200. I run mine with a CAL Icon MkII Power Boss CD, Bryston BP-25 preamp, and B&W 802's with North Creek outboard crossovers. The BAT replaced an Aragon 8008BB, rated 200W/ch, and it is every bit as powerful with its 100W rating. Highs are sweet yet extended, with incredible definition and three dimensionality in the midrange. Bass is mellow and musical, with good control of low frequencies. Runs hot, but it's supposed to. I think the BAT is very well made.
