Up for sale is a lightly used SAC KH-1000 amplifier, built for AKG Acoustics by SAC of Germany. I got this amplifier in a package with my pair of K-1000, and this is a unit branded as AKG.
It is the typical SAC KH-1000 unit, fully running in Class A during operation regardless of music playing or not. It has a single pair of balanced inputs on the back, and two 4-pin balanced outputs on the front. The amplifier has a non detachable external power supply, which is externally switchable between 110v/230v.
Powers the K-1000 awesomely good, as well as other standard dynamic headphones. All of my headphones are terminated in 4-pin XLR connectors, so I have been using it with HD-650 and K-701 with excellent results.
Regarding physical condition, there is a very small nick on one of the fins on top of the amp, visible on the photos. Also, the external power supply is lightly scuffed due to age - although maybe not very visible on the photos.
No smoking home, no pets - I take very good care of my equipment.
This unit has serial number #1474.
Reason for sale? I recently acquired a FirstWatt F1 clone for the K-1000, and I have the Trafomatic Audio Head One as preamp for the F1 and an alternative for the other dynamic headphones. This little beauty is seeing no use lately and should be put in a good home.
I have never sold anything through Head-Fi, but I have been a long time member. Have some feedback on AudioGon.
This amp is based in Macedonia. Will ship properly packed to any location required. Shipping is extra. Preferred method of payment is wire transfer [practically no charge for EU residents] or Western Union money transfer.
Macedonia is not featured on the PayPal country list, but I might be able to receive a PayPal payment through a friend - as to not consider that a deal breaker
