Balanced Audio Technology Rex 3 Preamplifier

REX 3 Preamp marks 25 years of stellar BAT design

Featuring a stunning new industrial look that complements its internal circuit improvements, the 18-tube REX 3 provides the greatest levels of transparency and musicality of any preamplifier in BAT’s renowned history.

Comprised of a vacuum-tube power module and separate control module, the groundbreaking two-box component features second-generation amorphous-core output transformers wound with Cardas Audio’s finest OFC wire. The 10-tube REX power module incorporates additional oil-filled capacitors in an enhanced SuperPak assembly. Sonically, these critical additions offer finer dynamics, clarity, and top-to-bottom extension when compared to the already stellar previous REX generation. The easy-to-use REX 3 also boasts an incredible user interface and plenty of customizable options. And with the REX 3’s proprietary electronic shunt volume attenuator, you can always get the volume just right.
