Finding a reliable builder for the KGSShv can be a challenge. Especially considering
the likes of Fishski won’t touch HV or Tran who is just too busy. So I had to search out for alternatives.
I stumbled across Headincloud’s listing for his on-board, inquired about the possibility
of shipping overseas, but was informed it was no longer available. Just my luck, right.
Well, Geoff had other ideas and thus began our journey.
Initially Geoff had drawn up a proven design, which was simple and reliable,
but I had other ideas. More than willing to give it a shot we came up with a design
with a smart look, completely inspired by Headamp’s current offerings.
An all aluminum off-board w/servo. Polished front and top panel with the A-D 41-step attenuator.
Being a DIY project there was much risk doing the metal work, luckily, it turned out really great. Thanks to Justin for sharing his knowledge and experience in dealing with the metal. Learned a good deal and can fully appreciate how difficult it is to get Headamp quality.
Thanks to Geoff for putting up with my schiit, being flexible and getting things done right. I was rather lucky to find such a good builder and an utter gentleman.
Hope you guys enjoy the pics, this was definitely a fun process.
And yea, it sounds damn great.
