BAT VK3i vs Classe 47.5

Has anyone used both and can compare?

How about the phono stages?


Briefly had & used the Classe 47.5 & it was ok, just not my cup of tea. Might not have been a fair comparison, as I used the BAT w/a BAT amp. I also had the CP50 but only kept it a few weeks-just long enough to know I really didn't like it. Had the BAT a lot longer, although this had the 6 pack & no phono stage.

Overall I prefer BAT gear over Classe, but of course, that's just my preference.
