For Sale:
FS: AMB/Cavalli CKKIII - 220V

Will Ship To: Anywhere

For sale, my personal CKKIII amplifier. The amp is a diy effort between AMB and Alex Cavalli. The amplifier is extremely linear and transparent. It works wonderfully with all Grado headphones (I have tried it with the RS1 and the SR60), with many orthos (I used it with Thunderpants, Audeze LCD2, Hifiman HE300), although it wouldn't be powerful enough for the Hifiman HE (which would require a quite powerful speaker amp), with Ety ER4S, AudioTechnica AD2000. Lately I am using it with Sennheiser HD650 and HD580.

It's about on par with the Gilmore GS-1 amplifier, and easily beats expensive commercial offerings (such as the Burson HA160).

Selling because I am having a diy amp made, which integrates a custom preamp with highend volume control, and a low power speaker amplifier that's also designed for orthos.

This CKKIII build is top notch, it's very compact and has beautiful looking custom panels.
It has both a full size headphone out, and a mini connector for IEMs.

The request is 160 Euro + shipping (about 15 Euro). Shipping ideally to Europe / Russia, given the voltage.

I can accept bank transfer or Paypal. If Paypal, buyer would have to add PP fees (about 5 euros), or choose to use Paypal gift.

Thanks for looking

Did you build this amp, and if so would you be willing to do a voltage conversion for the US?

How do you think this amp would pair with the Fostex TH600?

Is this the same amp you put up for sale in 2010? If so, why didn't it sell?

Hello, Mangler

No, I didn't built it. It was built by a diyer called MrMajestic2, in Sweden, for me. I did sell the amp to a friend, because I was mainly using electrostats.
Lately, I repurchased it a few months ago, because I sold my electrostatic gear to buy high end speakers. I have had a local technician replace a transistor and give the CKKIII a thorough checkup, so basically it is better now than it was built. The technician is extremely skilled, it is the same person who performed me the SRM-727A mods (feedback and transistor modifications).

I think it would sound great with those Fostex. Thing is, I would prefer to sell it like it is without having it rewired, both because of cost and time reasons. smily_headphones1.gif

This amp is exceptional value for the money. I am only letting it go because I am having an epic diy "tower" amplifier built, which has a high end preamp, a Hiraga LeMonstre for orthos-dynamics, and a Megatron on top of all for stats.
