  1. Melody Goes All Out...

    Melody Valve Hifi
    Some of you may be looking at the dimensions I listed and thinking "that must be one big honkin' tube!" It is, and here's a picture next to a 300B for scale..... I think the screening on the glass is a nice premium touch as well....

    Melody Valve Hifi
    The price isn't final yet, so I don't want to post a guesstimate, but they'll end up somewhere in the the mid 5-digit range.
  3. Melody Goes All Out...

    Melody Valve Hifi
    Here's a quick rundown of the relevant specs: Each monoblock uses a single Western Electric replica 212 (manufactured by Pavane specifically for Melody) for 50 class A watts. The other two signal tubes are old stock Western Electric tubes, (WE429A and WE373A) just as Melody has done with...
  4. Melody Goes All Out...

    Melody Valve Hifi

    Just box tuning and crossover. The drivers are the same. I don't have any pictures of the driver outside the cabinet at the moment, but if I get a chance to take one I will.
  9. Melody Product Reviews

    Melody Valve Hifi
    [SPOILER ALERT] This is not the first time a reviewer has compared a Melody product to his own Pass Labs gear and found it to be an improvement. (the first one bought the AN300B review sample and got back far more than he spent selling the gear it replaced) That's not an indictment of Pass...

    Just a basic coat of stain black for the prototypes, but these are going to be GOOD!

    ACA News and Announcements
    Hey everybody, I know I sorta dropped off the map shortly after we introduced the new subforum, and the reason is that I started a new day job. It's been a hectic few weeks with the new gig and the adjustments that go along with that, but I'm finally coming up for air. Hopefully we can get...
