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 **
