The culmination of nearly two decades of design, the fully balanced REX II preamplifier represents the pinnacle of Balanced Audio Technology¹s purist approach to building a statement control center without peer. Featuring a vacuum-tube power module and separate control module, this groundbreaking two-box component features a transformer-coupled output stage (aka T-REX). The latter replaces BAT¹s Six-Pak of output capacitors with custom-designed amorphous core output transformers. Sonically, they offer greater dynamics, transparency, top-to-bottom extension, and a more organic portrayal of music. Easy to use, the REX II boasts an incredible user interface and myriad customizable options. And with the REX II¹s proprietary electronic shunt volume attenuator, you can always get the volume just right.
