PS Audio BHK Signature Preamp


Read more here ». Have you ever wanted to own the finest amplifier in the world but were scared off by a six-figure price tag? All that is about to change. Power amplifiers are the make-or-break component in the music reproduction chain.

Everything in your system funnels into this critical component; anything lost can never be recovered. This amplifier is unmatched, in terms of sheer musicality, openness, tonal richness and accuracy, jaw dropping performance. Bascom H. This is the first amplifier Bascom felt was good enough to lend his name to. It is his finest achievement in a lifetime of work. Available in both stereo and mono models, the BHK Signature series is unparalleled in its ability to render details formerly lost in the music.

The BHK Signature is a hybrid design enjoying performance benefits from multiple design techniques including, a balanced differential vacuum tube input, balanced differential MOSFET power outputs, and separate, isolated, analog power supplies feeding each. When it comes to musically controlling and powering loudspeakers, the BHK Signature has no peer.

The Mono Signature doubles the output current with half the impedance of the stereo model. Each Mono Signature produces watts into an eight-Ohm loudspeaker, watts into four-Ohms, and watts into 2-Ohms. But more than just doubling the current, the BHK Signature also doubles every internal component of the into one: double tubes, double power supplies, transistors, capacitors and resistors. The results are hard to put into words. The BHK Signature is easily twice as clear, twice as open, significantly more musical than its stereo counterpart.

And what is truly remarkable is the Signature is one of the best performing, musical sounding amplifiers ever made.

Imagine your delight listening to either. The power amplifier is technology always present in stereo systems. Overtones from plucked instruments, subtle cues defining placement, depth, soundstage width, and transient decays are often lost in the power amplifier. The BHK Signature power amplifiers are unique in their ability to faithfully pass even the tiniest of details.

The first listen to the BHK is like pulling a blanket off the loudspeakers. Suddenly revealed are the tiniest of details that now ring clear through the BHK, perfectly preserved through its extraordinary bandwidth, low feedback, vacuum tube and MOSFET design. The connection between preamplifier and power amplifier is critical, for it is at this junction where most essential musical details are easily lost.

In the BHK Signature a vacuum tube serves as the perfect interface between the preamplifier and the massive power output stage inside the BHK Signature.

Used as the interface between the preamplifier and the input stage of a power amplifier, tubes have no peer. Invented by Fleming in , and refined by deForest in , the vacuum tube is unique amongst amplification devices: it boils an abundance of free electrons in empty space while modern devices pull fixed numbers through solids.

Tubes are the perfect interface between sources and power stages. The BHK Signature input features a classic triode vacuum tube in a modern configuration. Hand matched pairs of Russian Gold Lion s are self-biased with constant current and high voltage, free of timing and phase distortion without the use of negative feedback. They provide the perfect interface between the delicate musical transitions output by the DAC or preamplifier, and are electrically isolated from the BHK power output stage which is connected to the loudspeaker.

The hybrid approach used in the BHK Signature takes advantage of the best traits technology has to offer, unavailable in traditional solid state or tube designs. Conversely, solid state designs are correct for output stages, but suffer when used as inputs. Only a hybrid approach takes advantage of the best in both disciplines. A power amplifier connects its reservoir of energy to the loudspeaker through a type of valve solid state or vacuum tube controlled by the input stage.

MOSFETs handle power without the additional circuitry needed by tube power amplifiers, and they sound better than tubes or their solid state alternatives, bipolar transistors.

Field effect transistors were first invented by Julius Edgar Lilienfeld in and because they require very little current and operate with an invisible field, their sound is more closely related to vacuum tubes than transistors, without suffering any of the issues driving loudspeakers typical of vacuum tube power amplifiers.

Not all MOSFETs are the same, their differences characterized by their relationship with the input signal and the power supply driving them: N-types for the positive going signals, P-types for negative.

It turns out that N-types have lower distortion and perform better than P-types. Despite this anomaly most power amplifier designs use both types of transistor in a configuration known as complementary symmetry. The BHK takes a different approach, one that avoids the problem of uneven performance between N and P devices altogether. Be the first to Write a Review for this item!

Preamps can make or break a system; holding back rich details buried in the music. They are the critical link between sources and power amplifiers. Precious few of them—only a handful really—uncover, preserve and amplify the rich bloom of music. There are only a handful of hand-signed Limited Edition units left.

LOG IN. Hi :- Has anyone heard this one? Thanks Edit Delete. I have been very satisfied with the system synergy. The speaker-Amp combo was excellent and then I added the PS Audio Preamp last with reasonable expectations as it was so good already but it surprised me when it took my system to another level. Very Happy Now! Exciting, thanks :- Do you use the standard Psvane tubes or have you replaced them with even better ones?

Thank you for your request.

Looks like the new BHK preamplifier is coming soon. Last edited by 4N6; at PM. Has anyone purchased this preamp yet? I'm curious about what fellow AA'ers think about Bascom King's latest preamplifier. Love the volume control - it's reminiscent of Ayre's implementation - using gain rather than varying impedance. But it uses tube gain rather than transistors. Very good dynamics even at low levels. Downsides - not as polished in terms of switching to HT bypass and back.

Conclusion: The PS Audio BHK Signature preamp is a bargain and highly recommended! It sounds musical and natural, and presents all kind of music.

The BHK Signature Pre Amplifier features two 12AU7 dual triode vacuum tubes in the input stage that act as a zero feedback balanced input amplification pair. A unique self biasing constant current source and user selectable switch combination allows those who like to roll their own tube selections to place any acceptable 6, 7 or 12 series vacuum tubes inside the preamp. Each of the inputs, whether single ended RCA or balanced XLR are immediately converted to a pure balanced signal by the dual triode vacuum tube for lowest distortion, highest linearity performance. The signals, once selected, are passed directly the revolutionary new multi-stage attenuator controlling both volume and balance. If the PS Audio BHK Signature Pre Amplifier is going to be part of a home theater system controlling the main left and right channels, each input can be user-assigned as a home theater bypass. Perhaps the most difficult challenge facing preamp designers is the volume control.

Place the BHK Signature Preamplifier between your musical sources, such as a phono preamp, DAC, tuner or auxiliary source—and your power amplifier—and magic happens.
