Hi, the BAT VK75 is a tube amp with 75wpc. You can buy a second one and have a pair of very good tube monoblocks delivering 150wpc. That should be enough to easily drive most speakers. OTOH, the Pass X250 is a solid state amplifier, and the sound between the two is reported to be quite different. You should run a search on this site, on AA in the amp/preamp forum, and on the respective manufacturer's websites, to find out more about these amps. The BAT VK500 is a much closer match to the Pass, as it is a 250wpc solid state amp with only two gain stages. I currently have one listed for sale.
