This amplifier is a beauty. Together with HD650 it sounds warm and very dynamic and with a hard-hitting impact. The one I had was made in 2010.
Do you know what was changed in the 2014 revision?

The first release was unleashed back in 2009, and it contained two headphone jacks, one set of inputs and some solid internals. It received positive feedback from users and reviewers alike.

In 2014 however, it was updated to include a second pair of inputs (and a button to switch between them), an upgraded faceplate and some improved circuitry. While on paper it might look like an incremental upgrade, adding another set of inputs was a game changer for the KHV-1; instead of being used solely for headphones, it opened up the market for it to be used as a dedicated pre-amp for a simple Hi-Fi system as well.
