FS/FT: SWA Krell Klone (w/ TKD pot) - $OLD

Will Ship To: CONUS Only

Selling this incredible DIY amp made by Corey @ SWA. This amp is top notch, and much preferred over most SS amps I've heard. Plays well with the variety of cans/IEMs that I've tried, and plenty of power for orthos. Stock build and parts other than the upgraded TKD pot. This Klone is very close to the original Krell KSA-5 amp, at a fraction of the cost. 

 

Condition is mint. Gain is set to 5. Shipping only CONUS. Price does not include shipping or PayPal fees so please add 3.5% of gift. Please pm me with any questions you may have, thanks.

 

Will consider all trades.

anybody that owns one of my amps is my customer.  i have a liberal warranty policy.  i want to make sure the new owner contacts me so that i can extend customer service and make sure that the Owner's Manual has been provided.

 

the amp's TX primaries are single and wired for N. American voltage 120VAC only, for a reason.  i am not willing to support any product that is operated outside of N. American voltages.

 

the Klone boards are basically 99.9% identical to the original.  a couple of extra film bypass caps on the rails were added.

 

same sand as the original.  caps and resistors are different.  DC coupled design.  any original Krell KSA-5 that hasn't had the electrolytic caps replaced is underperforming.  the Panasonic caps i used will be good for a dozen years before a recap would be needed.  the amp is only 6mo. old.

 

voltage swing and current biasing same - 10Vrms and 200mA Class A.  gain is 5x. 

 

Krell designed two different power supplies for the KSA-5.  this one has the original PS.  custom wound TX from SumR.

 

original sported an Alps R27.  the Klone has a TKD 2CP-2511 pot.  i preferred both the TKD and GoldPoint SA in the Klone.
