For Sale:
FS: SicPhones "Zen-like" headphone amp

Will Ship To: Anywhere

This is a SicPhones headphone amplifier, which is somewhat like one of Nelson Pass's one-stage Zen designs for headphones. Limited-order build from 2012, no longer available. Sometimes simpler is better. Looks great, sounds great, and drives most anything. In excellent like-new condition. Price includes Paypal and shipping in US48.

Is this one of the very rare early demo versions that uses a SiC JFET? Or is it a later version that uses another transistor? The SiC JFET manufacturer (SemiSouth) went bankrupt before fulfilling their Sicphones order and I understand that only a handful of 'demo' amps were made with this component.

Thanks.

I think this is one with a more standard MosFet. There were only about 110 amps of all types made. It's too bad that SemiSouth folded.

 

By the way, the build quality is damn good on these things.

Thanks for your reply. I heard a MosFet version at a Head-Fi meet and it sounded excellent, nice and transparent but not harsh with a lovely musicality to the sound. If I needed another headphone amp I'd have snapped this up quick, as it's a great price for such a rarity.

Good luck with the sale.
