Details

Versatile, compact amplifier for both digital and analog needs

The full metal body realizes both vibration control and elegant style in an half size body that enables placement on a desktop to be a PC HiFi system or to be a small stereo system. The E40 combines the digital and analog world, so traditional vinyl-lovers as well as people liking modern computer audio both can have their fun with it.

Despite the powerful discrete output stages and high quality linear power supply, this small powerhouse doesn't even occupy the space of an A4 paper sheet. It has 40 Watts per channel into an 8 Ohms loudspeaker, which can be tapped from the massive loudspeaker connectors, that will accept either banana plugs or bare wires. Four inputs are available, two line level analog ones, one MM input for your turntable and one USB input for digital computer-, tablet- or smartphone audio. Under most circumstances the internal power stages will completely satisfy, but in case more power or bass is needed, you can connect an external power stage or subwoofer to the stereo line level preamp outputs. As an added bonus, the E40 has an outstanding headphones output.


Reviews:
KECES E40 Integrated Amp / Preamp / DAC / Headphone Amp Review by Sandu Vitalie @ Soundnews.net
“It never passed my mind that this small Taiwanese black box, at only 4 kilos and slightly bigger than a book could move so easily and gracefully a petulant pair of speakers as Buchardt S400 and so close to their maximum potential.”
“I wish I knew about this one when it was announced, because it would have saved me money and precious time by not going the long and exhausting route of trying a myriad of entry to mid-level integrated amplifiers.”


Review Keces E40 geïntegreerde versterker door Geoffrey van Houwaert @ Alpha-audio.nl
“What stands out immediately, is the exceptional bass which the little amplifier pumps through our loudspeakers.”
“Voices acquire somewhat more body and musical instruments never sound shrill. For lower quality recordings, this amplifier is a godsend.”


Keces E40 Integrated Amplifier by Michael Zisserson @ PositiveFeedback.com
“KECES has created quite the value proposition in its E40 integrated amplifier for $599.99. It has an affordable price-point combined with adequate capability and a sophisticated sound that is usually only available at many orders of magnitude higher of a price-point.”

Keces E40 Stereo Integrated Amplifier by Oscar Stewart @ soundperfectionreviews.com
“Upon first listen I was incredibly surprised at how big the sound was from this tiny little integrated amp; it really packs some punch and has no issue driving the Bowers & Wilkins 606’s or similar spec speakers.”
“As has been my experience with previous Keces equipment, the E40 is quite linear and exceptionally well controlled when it comes to timing and responsiveness, however it is not clinical.”


Vollverstärker Keces E40 Einzeltest von  @ hifitest.de
“Tonally and dynamically, the Keces E40 amplifier with DAC diffentiates the sound very well indeed. The amp sounds powerful and agile, but also cultivated-atmospheric.”

Keces E40 Vollverstärker mit DAC @ av-magazin.de
“The E40 is impeccably finished and attractively designed. In terms of features, the compact amplifier throws two line inputs, a headphone output, a high-quality phono MM module and an USB DAC on the scales. But above all, the E40 distinguishes itself with its sound quality. Tonally and dynamically, the Keces E40 amplifier with DAC diffentiates the sound excellently. The amp sounds powerful and agile, but also stands out with a cultivated-atmospheric playing style as well. This performance earns the Keces E40 an unreserved recommendation.”
