How not to build amps...


Recommended Posts

This one came to an end this week as I finally got round to turning the amp on and testing it.  Busy summer and all that but here is what this should have been in the first place:

Old school KGSSHV build only using the input sockets on the back, that swanky gold IEC and the volume control.  The rest was all garbage...

First time poster. Happy to report that this beauty is now on its way to its new home in Melbourne.

Happy to find head-case via this purchase. I am relatively new to estats, but not to headphones. I've been mostly avoiding HF over the last few years and mostly posting about audio in a small closed facebook group - happy to find this place which shares my low tolerance of shilling culture.

The amp will replace/sideline my current stock SRM-313. I might hang on to it, in case I ever get something with normal bias.

In terms of headphones, the KGSSHV will feed my L700 and the Koss/Drop estat.

Cheers everyone. I've been having fun reading through older threads, especially the critiques of poor quality hyped up products.
