|The BHK Signature amplifier has been in the hands of beta testers around the world for weeks now and their reviews are just starting to be made public on our forums. I have provided a link for you to read what they have written.Many have asked me for a brief run down on the amp, how it came to be what it is and what differentiates it from other amplifiers. I wrote something a few days ago that I felt was worth sharing with Newsletter readers.”The amplifier, like the AC power, is the foundation of the system; the meat and potatoes. Get those things right first, invest well and you’ll never regret it. Until I started playing with amps again I was like everyone else I know, ignoring the amp – it just sits there and works. But then I started playing with various designs and was at first startled with the differences. Some of the amps simply lost details, space, harmonics altogether! I don’t know where they went, but I do know once they are lost the best speakers in the world cannot bring them back. Like food, remove its flavor and a fancy plate cannot bring it back.Once I realized all the info I was missing I began a hunt for what brought it back – in a natural way, without added tizz and fizz which I got with class D – and all I could find was a few tube amps. But they lacked in the bass and power of music, as pure tube output amps tend to do, though they didn’t lose any of its precious details and harmonics. And that’s when I first heard the prototype of Bascom’s amplifier. It captured all that was on the music and did so in such a natural open manner that I was shocked. Truly shocked. That’s when I realized all my efforts to design something similar were being wasted. I had found my designer. The rest is history.
Get it right and you can lay that piece of the puzzle to rest forever. Once the proper amp, preamp is in place, speakers can come and go to suit your fancy and your room – but you have at least a rock solid foundation, one you can trust and enjoy for the rest of your musical life.
I haven’t had such confidence in a product’s perfectness for many, many years. Trust. It’s tough to find perfection in anything, but the BHK pours a half century of one man’s life into a single box and if you can manage to own one, you will never regret it.”
I know no other way than to tell you than from my heart what I feel about this amplifier. But that’s just me and surely I have a vested interest. If you want to read what others have heard and feel about this extraordinary product, click the link below and spend a few minutes on the forums.
