BHK Signature 250 Stereo Amplifier

A forty year quest for musical perfection

“The first amplifier I gave up a lifetime obsession with tubes for” Arnie Nudell, founder, Infinity Systems.

Have you ever wanted to own the finest stereo amplifiers 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.  The BHK Signature features a zero-loss vacuum tube input stage coupled to a high bias differentially balanced MOSFET output. This amplifier has few rivals at any price and, in terms of sheer musicality, openness, tonal richness and accuracy, none.
