I own a BAT VK75ES. Loads of pure non colored power. Multiple sets of speaker taps make this amp very easy to use with many different speakers.I am using it with a pair of Verity Audio Parsifals Encores. Auto bias is a major plus.The new super tubes that BAT is using are teriffic. Last issue of Absolute Sound had TWO articles about the VK75SE, they could not say enough good things about it. Yes,it is expensive,but you will not be looking for a new amp for a very long time. I just saw one come up for sale on this site the other day, it's the first one I can remember seeing in over six months. If I were you, I would grab that unit if it is not gone. Bat made a limited number of these,you don't see many used for good reason. Good luck!
