Headphone & Loud Speaker Amplifier Kit Assembly Service

Announcement    Welcome to my shop! Click "Read More" for more info on how to buy an amp and get one built!

The listing price is my service price, so the amp must be purchased separately. I have a few kits in stock (see below) which you can purchase from me via PayPal. If I don't have a kit in stock I can purchase it for you from the manufacturer or I can buy it for you + PayPal fee.

Shipping: You can calculate the cost of shipping by going to the listing, and then under Shipping and Return Policies type in your zip code

I ship worldwide and pack my items neatly with plenty of cushion and foam

Frequently asked questions

What cables will I need to get the amp running?

If you plan on hooking the amp directly to a desktop computer or laptop, you’ll need a 3.5mm to 2-Male RCA cable that is not included with the amp.

Do I need a Digital Audio Converter (DAC)?

It is highly recommended, but not absolutely necessary. A DAC will greatly improve sound quality and it will clear up noise coming from your computer. It also scales well, so the better the DAC the better the sound.

Source (PC, Laptop) --> DAC --> Amp

Can you build any other amps besides the ones listed?

Absolutely. I can build any headphone amp that comes in a kit.

I live outside the US, can you change the voltage of the amp?

Yes. All the amps that I'm selling have a universal transformer so I can wire it to the appropriate voltage. Just send me a note if you need me to modify it

Do you ship worldwide and will my package arrive safely?

Yes, I ship globally. I've had customers as far as the UK, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Germany. All the amps that I sold abroad arrived safely and in perfect working order. I make sure all my amps have plenty of cushion and are neatly packed.

What kind of audio files should I be using?

At least 320kbps. FLAC or better is best.

What kind of solder do you use for your kits?

Cardas Eutectic Solder. Contains Sn, Pb, Cu, Ag. Silver for higher conductivity and stronger solder joints. This solder is top of the line

What cable do I need to hook up the DAC to the Amp?

You will need a 2 male to 2 male RCA cable
