KGSSHV - 10mA Output Bias 500v IXYS parts
Will Ship To: Anywhere
As I am selling my Sr-009s, I will also be selling my KGSSHV.
This HV was built by head-fier georgep for his own personal use, but after he finished his DIY-T2 he did not need it anymore, so I offered to purchase it from him. The case has a few dings here and there as shown in the photos, the major one being on the front top right of the unit and another on the front top left.
After receiving the amp, I had some problems with tons of hum in the left channel and it was way higher in volume, turned out that the wire leading from the pot to the left channel board had come loose, easy enough to fix. Also, after owning the unit for several months, I chose to up the output stage biasing current from the stock 5mAs to a more heatsink advantage taking 10mAs by replacing a few resistors on the boards, I took pictures of those as well. Another thing that happened after a few months was that the transformer started physically buzzing about half the time, which was audible from quite a ways away. I contacted Richard at SumR to get a new higher spec transformer. Though, this is about the time I moved to Korea, so I never installed it, and after the amp arrived here it didn't buzz anymore, though periodically the transformer makes an almost crinkly/buzzing sound. The amp will come with the new transformer that was made for me if you feel the need to install it.
Other than that the amp has been bulletproof just making beautiful music for my Sr-009s.
Disclaimer: This is a DIY product, that I did not build myself. While I have never had a problem with the amp, other than those listed above, this is not a commercial product and the sale will not be seen as such.
2300 will include paypal fees and shipping to United States
Thanks for looking!
Would be willing to give a discount to anyone wanting to buy both the HV and the 009s
