My quest after I got my rig back up and running after our house renovations this summer was to finalize my e-stat headphone amp (solid state was a must) and upgrade my DAC. The latter is done now, and I think I've found what I was looking for in the KGSSHV.
The market will decide what the resale value is depending on the merits of the amp which has no doubt earned its due going by impressions and reviews and general sales.
The return on investment in my opinion is the hours you spend listening to the amp rather than spent worrying about how much you will get back when you sell it. Goes for any gear.
An analogy i will give you, My Fuji X-E1 camera cost me 1000$ and I bought it as soon as it was released back in december 2012. YOu can snag one up for less than 600$ brand new now. I have clicked over 15000 pictures since then and am I sad that the resale value has dropped in less than 9 months? hell no, cause the experiences i have lived through and the memories i have made because of it, the way it has changed my perception at looking at things, the friends i have made along the way cause of the love for photography that it has brought into my life is incalculable.
This is a hobby like any other hobby of passion that everyone is in for the joy of it, not at whether you will come out in the black or make a profit on.
Good going that you found your joy in the KGSSHV amp wise. Enjoy the tunes.
