Product Description

PS Audio BHK 250 stereo power amplifier represents one man's lifetime of work striving to achieve perfection in music reproduction. Bascom H.King's 250 power amp features a hybrid design that enjoys the benefits from the balanced both vacuum tube input and MOSFET outputs.

Drives Any Speakers

PS Audio BHK 250 stereo power amplifier handles any even some of the most demanding loudspeakers. It delivers 250 watts in 8Ohms, 500 into 4 Ohms and more than 1,000 watts into 2 Ohms. The Signature series of amplifiers offer unparalleled performance abilities to revive musical details that were once hidden. 

Zero-Loss Input

BHK Signature power amplifiers are unique in many ways, and their rare ability to faithfully pass even the most delicate of details puts it up there with some of the best. Preserving these tiny details in the music is done through its wide bandwidth, low feedback hybrid design. The BHK's vacuum tubes have massive quantities of free flowing electrons, rare to the amount usually found in transistors, This ensures the input stage passes the most delicate and complex musical details without loss.

MOSFET Output

Incorporating both vacuum tubes and MOSFET's means the BHK 250 benefits from the best traits from each. The combination means that both disciplines fill in for where the other lacks in performance. The MOSFET section can handle power without the need for additional circuitry like tube power amps require. Additionally, as the input stage does a good job preserving the fine details in music, the textures, timing and phase information and transfers this with no loss to the power stage, the MOSFET does the best job at handling the loudspeakers.

Designed By Bascom

The BHK power amplifiers are the embodiment of industry legend Bascom H.King's lifetime's mission to achieve perfection in musical reproduction. The success of the first hybrid power amplifiers in 1978 eventually led to the creation of the Signature series with the goal to build the top 5 power amps in the world.

High-Quality Components

The MOSFET output is highly regulated for low noise and preservation of musical details. Hand selected passive components and hand soldered parts showcase the high quality of the BHK 250's build.  Even the connectors are crafted using copper gold plated for a quality connection.
