[Price Drop] FS: Bottlehead S.E.X. v2.1 w/ C4S & Impedance Switch Upgrades - Free Shipping [ConUS-only]
Will Ship To: ConUS or cheaper Local Pickup
Recently-completed build of the Bottlehead S.E.X. v2.1 w/ C4S & Impedance Switch upgrades - price reflects replacement cost plus a modest finishing fee, buyer can consider assembly to be free. Color scheme is a unique 'hammered natural/raw copper' custom topside paint finish that I designed myself along with a red mahogany base stain w/ semi-gloss poly seal. Everything is stock build, plus small black spiked feet upgrade with cushioned pads for delicate surfaces - could also pretty easily add a 4-pin XLR chassis jack at the buyer's request. Works very well and has seen very little use - only selling it due to my general collection sell-off towards more portable gear. For sale only - no trades for now.
Has the potential to pair well with a wide variety of headphones due to the versatility provided by the Impedance Switch, but I would most highly recommend it for the mid-to-high efficiency planar magnetic headphone segment, particularly most any of the 35- or 38-ohm HiFiMAN planars (basically any but the HE-6) and possibly the LCD-2, along with your choice of high-efficiency stereo speakers. Has seen highly-limited testing with low-impedance dynamics, so can't recommend it outright for those headphones if you don't also own a planar.
Listed price includes Free USPS Priority shipping to the ConUS only, and I will knock off roughly double the cost of shipping from the listed price to the right local pickup buyer (maybe someone with a planar headphone?...). Depending on which PayPal payment method you use, maybe add $15 to help partially cover fees. High selling preference for established members w/ ~100+ posts & 2+ positive feedback, though am willing to consider anyone and might make a particular exception for someone with a great buyer history (head-fi or eBay) and fewer posts. Upon request, I can also link to my own flawless eBay profile & feedback history.
If you have any questions or want additional photos, please let me know - otherwise, please PM if interested.
