SOLD: FS: ModWright KWA 100SE Power Amplifier

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Item: ModWright KWA 100SE Power Amplifier 
Location: Harrington Park, Sydney
Price: $2200 + postage/courier cost
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Moving house and change of direction 
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: Purchased from SNA member Clydemount in April 2019 and have been using it mainly in a HT setup, which is hardly using this amplifier the way it should be used. Recently started using in my main system and it is such an elegant and detailed amplifier. This is not a "hit you in the face" type of amp, but sort of reminds me of a silky valve amp, even though it is not.  Very detailed, well controlled from the bottom to the top, with a level of sophistication. Retails for over $8K, but selling it for what I paid for it, that was a bargain for something of this quality. Balanced and unbalanced inputs and runs gently warm, with delicate blue lighting.

 

I don't have any original boxes, but have found an excellent double-box that is a perfect fit.

"The ModWright KWA 100SE is a wonderfully musical and entertaining-sounding piece of gear. It offers reference-level performance on many parameters. However, in the specific area of tonality/timbres, along with a seamlessness/grainless overall sonic perspective, it is right up there with some of the best solid state amps, regardless of cost. In my honest opinion, if I did not already own my fantastic-sounding and more expensive Pass Labs XA60.5 mono-blocks, I could easily live with the KWA 100SE and not miss my reference amps at all in my system. I highly recommend anyone looking for a two-channel solid state amp to strongly consider putting the KWA 100SE on your audition list."

      Item: Astell & Kern AK300 DAP
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: Paid $1299, asking $600 firm
      Item Condition: Brand new
      Reason for selling: Not used
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      Up for sale is this new/unused AK300 which I bought from Addicted to Audio in Aug, 2016. I had the intention of using this player with a pair or Campfire Audio Andromeda IEM's, but found it more convenient to use my Iphone with my busy lifestyle. Hence this unit and & the Andromeda iem's have just been sitting in their boxes unused since. I auditioned a demo AK300 and Andromeda IEM's extensively at ATA and they proved to be a good combo. The AK300 has good resolution and is on the warm side, whilst the Andromeda iem's are neutral, natural and airy.
       
      This DAP has 64GB internal memory (expandable to 256GB via microSD card). The player supports all popular audio formats, incl: WAV, FLAC, WMA, MP3, OGG, APE(Normal, High, Fast), AAC, ALAC, AIFF, DFF, DSF, DSD 64/128 & MQS. There are also a range of genuine Astell & Kern accessories available to get the most from this player, incl: a headphone amp, recorder, charging cradle & CD-ripper. Whilst firmware updates are available to keep the player up to date.

      A note about shipping:  
       
      I will ship this item double boxed via Australia Post Express Post with Signature on delivery, or local pickup is welcome.
