Our ultimate expression on the art of audio amplification
Designed by the late Bascom H. King, the BHK600 represents the culmination of a lifetime of dedication and design in a single breathtaking expression of pure audio amplification. Built like no other power amplifier in history, the BHK600 will stand the test of time as one of the finest power amplifiers ever crafted. From the pure brute force of its massive 1.6kva power supply smoothed by 336,000 microfarads of capacitance to the delicate beauty of its vacuum tube rectification stage, the BHK600 will bring magic to your system from the first moment music is played. For those unwilling to compromise, the BHK 600 represents the final step in building a state-of-the-art high-performance music system.
When we first proposed to Bascom the idea of an ultimate amplifier, one where he could do anything he wanted to without regard to cost or complexity, he laughed. "Be careful what you wish for." Three years later, and weeks before his untimely passing, BHK completed the 600 in time to hear the results of his lifetime of design encapsulated in a single product. The BHK600 is based on BHK's classic hybrid vacuum tube/MOSFET design, but that's where the similarities with the other amps in the series end. From an entirely new vacuum tube power supply input stage to the internal wiring relying upon heavy gauge low impedance braided cabling more fitting a Tesla than a power amplifier, the BHK600 is pure performance at every level. From the first note of music, you'll appreciate how a lifetime of designing some of the best amps in the world gave rise to this amazing performer.
The BHK Signature 600 Mono Amplifier is unique in all the world. It is the only fully linear power amplifier of this size that is fully balanced from input to output. Its hybrid approach of vacuum tube inputs for both musical signals and power to feed and heat its input vacuum tubes is not just rare. It is essential to the openness and delicacy of the music: capturing every nuance and detail of transient and harmonic content. This is the amplifier Bascom had dreamed of designing and we're honored to have given him the chance to show the world what he can do—and what he produced in the 600 is nothing short of extraordinary. The BHK 600s are perfect for any size system in the world, producing a minimum of 600 watts into 8Ω, more than 1000 watts into 4Ω, and stable, short-term transient power into 2Ω. Nothing will stand in the way of this 108-pound beast as it elegantly controls every aspect of the music into any pair of loudspeakers.
