Fully working order. Includes XLO Pro power cord. 2 Sovtek 6922 tubes and owner's manual.
I pay shipping buyer pays fees. Check my 100% rating at ebay duxiaozhouyuheng and audiogon yuhengdu_tiger. Thanks for looking
UPDATE: I am also including a pair of tightly matched NOS Amperex 6DJ8 (orange globe version) with the sell. They are one of my favorite tube which produces tube magic mids while withholding top transparency. They pair of tubes along cost more than 80 bucks to buy. Consider it a steal at this combo price.
I would only be interested in trading for other great headphone amps or Shure 1540 closed back headphones.
Amperex review by Joe's Tube Lore:
Melos SHA-1 headphone amplifier | Stereophile.com
"The "best" speakers and amplifiers can present an amazing illusion of reality in a good-sounding room, but nothing I've heard comes as close to telling you exactly what the audio signal sounds like as the Melos/Grado setup. Not the Apogee Grands, not the IRS Vs, not the B&W 800s. Not even the excellent $2000 Stax SR-Lambda Signatures with their tubed driver circuit, which I find to sound less "see-through" than the $1500 Melos/Grado rig I'm listening to as I write."
"If you want to hear everything that the Grados are capable of and everything that's lurking down there near the noise floor, the Melos SHA-1 is the only way to go; the closest thing yet to sticking your interconnects straight into your ears."
