    For Sale
    Ship to:
    •   United States
    Best offer:


    For sale is a KGSSHV just waiting to come to life! Complete in terms of parts, never turned on, not wired. I simply never got around to finishing it, and I'm out of the headphone game (Quad speakers have ruined me).

    BEAUTIFUL build, see pics
    • RK50 Potentiometer on custom pcb!
    • Offboard heatsink version
      • On 90º angle brackets to in-body heatsinks
      • Case drilled for ventilation
    • Furutech rhodium XLR and RCA inputs
    • Electronic input relay selector (1 set XLR, 3 sets RCA)
    • Volume knob w/ countersunk acrylic diffuser for backlighting
    • Input selector drilled for LED output indicators (ELMA 3P switch!)
    • Dual headphone jacks
    • 2-box build (1 amp, 1 power supply)
    • SumR toroid (with spec sheet)
    • AMB ε24/σ24 power switch driver + transformer, driving a monster relay
    • ~1 foot umbilical
    • Satin Black front panels
    Also includes:
    • Half spool 600v wire
    • Silver audio wire
    • A few transistors, and assorted resistors, LEDs, molex, spacers, screws, fuses, etc.
    • Replacement shorter PSU heatsinks (see below)

    A few notes:
    • I last touched this YEARS ago
    • It goes without saying, you'll want to double check everything
    • It has never been powered on
    • The PSU heatsinks are a tiny bit too tall - the top of the PSU box won't close
      • I am including shorter heatinks that I had planned on installing
      • I had already soldered on the taller heatinks
      • As a result, I tried - and failed - to desolder them
      • As such, there's likely a bunch of flux and cleaning goop at the bottom of the PSU PCB - you'll need to work on this!!

    This thing is somewhat heavy - will ship abroad if I must, but USA preferred for both our sakes :)

    Consider this point of view:
    • $700 for a 4-gang RK50 pot on a PCB with with molex disconnects
    • $900 remaining cost for a literally complete kit KGSSHV with high-end parts and casework, which just needs some finishing touches
    Heck, if anyone buys the amp for $1000 (and why WOULDN'T you at this price?) without the RK50, I'll remove it and sell it separately :)

    This should sell. Bump.

    Common question: I'd guesstimate weight at 30 pounds fully packaged, and I'm in Chicago if that helps you calculate potential shipping
