I am a BAT fan owning a BAT preamp. Remember that the BAT uses 2 power cords and gets hot. I haven't heard thode particular amps ( I am familiar with some if their other gear though) but I am not sure of the viability of Classe as they shut down operations for a while until they got bailed out earlier in the year. I might consider the age of both amps. Ask for the serial numbers and call the companies.
Which pre amp? Would love your thoughts on it.
I have the BAT VK-51se. All the BAT 6 Pack Caps have been replaced. It sounds great. It is not overly tubey sounding. It is very dynamic with deep powerful controlled bass. It is very musical, especially the midrange. The top end is not rolled off as it is with some tube gear. The only draw back for some is that it only takes XLR's but you can use XLR-RCA adapters. It replaced my Pass X1 preamp which sounded mifi in comparison. This stereophile review is spot on-https://www.stereophile.com/tubepreamps/1103bat/index.html
Thanks, I have a Pass XP 12, that I do really like. But I've been really intrigued to try the BAT pre-amp at some point.
