Since I am listening to my speaker rig most of the time, I have decided to sell my balanced headphone rig (I still have a decent portable phone rig to listen to).

HeadRoom Balanced Home Amp @ HeadRoom - Right Between Your Ears

The amp includes the Max Module but not the Max dac.

The amp can drive up to 4 unbalanced phones or 2 balanced phones!

It has the Alps Blue Velvet Pot (not the stepped attunator).
There was no manual included, the parcel arrived with only the amp (no cables, accessoires,...), and a document.

This amp is in excellent condition.
Includes the original box.

You can email/PM me for more photos (in detail). If I would clean up the amp it would look even better As you can see there is some dust left on the amp. I took the photos very quick and at night.

To summarize advantage of balanced amps by saying 2 things: " "higher slew rate and lower noise floor", and maybe double-the gain, which is not always relevant because many SE amps can swing 10+ volts already (too much for headies). We summarize advantage of better cables by saying "better frequency response and lower distortion across the spectrum"...to understand what exactly that means is a totally different subject."
Some people argue that balanced headphones do not add improvements to the sound! Let me tell you (like many other Head-Fi'ers) will tell you that they are wrong! With a good balanced rig, you will soon find out that it adds major
audio improvements.

I am looking for 1250 euro at least (NP with import duties: 2500 euro)!
European Bank transfers are allowed (to skip the Paypal fees).
Payments in euro only.
Please add 4% Paypal fees.

Insured shipping charge (the parcel weight +/- 11000 kg):
Shipping inside Belgium, Netherlands: 32 euro
Shipping to UK, Denmark, France, Germany, ...: 87 euro
Shipping to Singapore, Japan: 265 euro (without insurance it's 53 euro)

Please also check my other IC's, especially the balanced Grado GS-1000!

What a beautiful amp it's so tempting.

I have just put in an order for a Corda Symphony, not yet sent the money and this amp is around the same price as the Symphony.

Plus im in england no Vat or customs.

The Symphony is a great amp no doubt, but it's not a balanced amp.

Combined shipping with the GS1000 is possible (save at least 30 euro) (the GS1000 package can't be included). I would offer a reduction if you are interested in both the GS1000 and the amp!
