[Updated] FS: new Bottlehead S.E.X. v2.1 w/ C4S & Impedance Switch Upgrades - Free Shipping [ConUS-only]
Will Ship To: ConUS + Local Pickup
Recently-completed Bottlehead S.E.X. v2.1 w/ C4S & ImpSwitch upgrades - price reflects replacement cost of amp kits & finishing materials; effectively free assembly & finishing service. Color scheme is a unique 'hammered natural/raw copper' custom topside paint finish that I designed/tested/implemented 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. 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 (including the HE-560) and possibly the LCD-2, along with your choice of high-efficiency stereo speakers. Has seen highly-limited testing with dynamics, so I can't recommend it outright for those headphones if you don't also own a planar - that said, with the built-in Impedance Switch kit, Bottlehead does advertise it as being compatible with everything from IEMs to planars to high-impedance dynamics.
Listed price includes Free USPS Priority shipping to the ConUS only. Depending on which PayPal payment method you use, maybe add $15 to help out with the 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.
