IC: Headamp KGSS DX (Canada) -- fully checked up, caps replaced
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Thinking of selling my Headamp KGSS DX since I'm going to be likely moving out of the country soon and will need the funds elsewhere. I would prefer selling it to a fellow Canadian since it's quite heavy to ship, but would be willing to ship it worldwide at buyer's expense.
The KGSS DX was recently given a clean bill of health by Innovative Audio here in Vancouver (which is imperative considering the age of these amplifiers) and I've included pictures of the receipt totaling $286.27 CAD for parts and labour. They replaced all of the ~8 year old capacitors with new and durable caps. Innovative Audio worked on my other KGSS as well, and they're probably the best audio repair shop in BC -- I've included pictures of the internals to show the amazing job they did.
The KGSS itself sounds absolutely spectacular with both the SR-007 and the SR-009. This is the deluxe (hence the DX) compact chassis version of the normal Headamp KGSS but "maxed out" with the following upgrades:
- 2x Stax (pro-bias), HE90 headphone jacks
- Dual GoldPt ladder-type stepped attenuators
- Always-On bias supply
- Vampire pure silver wiring
- Balanced and unbalanced inputs
- Gold letter engraving
- Custom sized chassis
I would prefer payment via EMT from fellow Canadians or payment via Paypal/bank wire for others.
IMO, unless you go for the KGBH SE, this is the best commercially built electrostatic amplifier money can buy. PM me if interested.
