For Sale:
Keces HA-171 Headphone Amplifier Preamp

Will Ship To: Lower 48 USA


Original retail $375, selling for $200 Shipped** - SALE PENDING -


Keces HA-171 with silver IEC upgrade option. In "9/10" condition, with original box and power cord. Quite possibly, the best deal on Headfi right now, this is a ridiculously good amp for the money. The HA-171 is a very powerful amp too, able to drive all but the most inefficient headphones on the market today. Two pairs of inputs, preamp outs, bypass outs, high/low gain switch, and switchable voltage. The HA-171s stellar build quality and pristine circuit design surpasses anything I've ever seen in this price range. The dark acrylic top plate is both functional and beautiful. The preamp section has been compared to those costing over twice as much.


Info, specs, and performance graphs here:








The HA-171 was an especially good match for my Sennheiser HD580/600 headphones and Sennheiser Momentums, and I'm guessing it would be a superb with a pair of HD650s as well. I just sold my Sennheisers to Head-fi member "Greed" and all of my other headphones have been recabled with XLR for use with balanced output amps, so I no longer require a single-ended output amp. See my other listings, too. The awesome PS Audio X Stream Prelude power cord (to the right of the HA-171 in the photo) is available separately and at an exceptional price. The PS Audio X Stream Prelude provides the tightest possible connection and helps clean up your AC for a smoother presentation, this combo is a great match. ** Free shipping when you buy both of these items together **


My buyer/seller feedback is excellent here at Head-fi, at Audiogon ("mutant"), Audio Asylum ("genungo"), and at ebay ("seldomblu"). Shipping to lower 48 USA only. USPS money order, certified bank checks, or personal checks are acceptable forms of payment. Personal checks must pass bank clearance before shipping. No Paypal. COD shipment is available.

First of all, I do not know this seller. I am writing to say that this is an insanely great deal. I have had one of these amps (with the matching DAC) for a number of years. This amp is built like a tank and is beautiful inside and out. And it has a very smooth and detailed sound. Look at the features mentioned in the ad, look at the real panel mounted RCA jacks, and compare that to what you get in a new amp for this price. There's no comparison. I hope someone on Head-Fi will take a chance and purchase this amp. You will be getting a fantastic amp for an unbelievable price.

Thanks, dpump!


May I say that I agree with your assessment(s). I'm trying to offer the newbie a chance to get a taste of real quality at an entry level price and I hope someone here will avail themselves of this opportunity before I decide to sell it for a bit more over at Audiogon.


I do not accept Paypal, mostly because I'm fed up with Paypal policies. My excellent seller feedback speaks for itself and any buyer can rest assured that they will be getting more than their money's worth from me.


Happy listening.
