Modding the Melos SHA-1 Headphone Amplifier

 It was Corey Greenberg’s Stereophile review of the Melos and hearing an all Melos system at my local dealer that first piqued my interest. Indeed, a desire in the early 90’s to own one of these is part of what got me into headphones in the first place. At the time, unable to come up with the cash, I bought some Grado SR-80’s and a Headroom Little instead. I finally bought my Melos in 2003. But, it has been sitting unused in a closet for a number of years.

D3a Experimenter's Printed Circuit Board

This project is a circuit board which, through various jumpers, can be configured for various circuits. Specifically, it is designed around the D3a vacuum tube, a high Gm, high mu pentode. Additionally, there are several other tubes such as the E180F and E810F that share the pin arrangement with the D3a allowing their utilization as well.
