Extra Info:

 This is my very first amplifier into the world of tubes and valves. A lot of time and money was invested in tube rolling to get the right synergy out of the amplifier with the right tubes. Original valves have been replaced with Mullard reissue El34, Mullard 5AR4, Brimar 6SL7 and Ken Rad 6SN7. Over $600 worth of tubes there alone. Amplifier is in excellent condition for its age and presents itself beautifully in its deep piano black chassis. Will come with its original double boxes and manuals. Inspection and sound will not disappoint.

 

Extract from the internet


MELODY H34s ASTRO BLACK Favorite tube of many music lovers is the EL34 which excels at tone. The tonality of the EL34 makes it also popular with musicians using stringed instruments, especially guitars. The most popular amplifier in the Melody range and winner of many awards the Melody H34 Signature offers fantastic sound quality at a price that seems unbelievable. With a full size chassis in piano black finish and retro styling it is a statement product in quality and style. The 25mm thick front panel contains three large solid aluminum knobs which control power on/off, volume and four RCA inputs. The volume knob controls a stepped resistor array with 24 positions. This ensures precise channel matching and maximum sound fidelity. The power tubes are four EL34 which deliver 40 watts of effortless power. This allows it to drive a wide range of loudspeakers with ease. The input and driver tubes are 6SN7/6SL7 and the amplifier has full tube rectification provided by the 5AR4 tubes. All the internal wiring is done by hand point to point with no circuit boards at all. This is the traditional way to build a long lasting amplifier with maximum sound qualities. It permits easy servicing and parts replacement or upgrading which modern solid state circuits with surface mount devices to not allow. At the rear are three oversized and shielded transformers with a power transformer in the centre and an output transformer either side for the left and right channels. Melody’s know how has delivered an amplifier that is powerful, delicate and with a depth of tone that makes it very beguiling. This amplifier can be muscular at one minute yet delicate the next, extracting minute details from the music. The sound stage is wide and deep and the bass is extremely realistic. The bass however is not dry or truncated, like many transistor amplifiers. It delivers information in the bass registers with plenty of feeling. The H34 Signature is an amplifier that music lovers will enjoy, not only for its sound but for the unbeatable value it offers.

I have for the first time learned about Melody amplifiers. Looking at the pictures and from what I can learn from research, i assume it has no built in phono stage. Is this correct. 

 

Cheers Brett

      Extra Info:
       I purchased this unit for my wife to use in her art studio. The idea was to use the numerous streaming options (NAS, Spotify etc.) to listen to music. Despite all these option she prefers to use CDs and, since the cds are stored in the studio, it makes sense. Subsequently I have utilised some other equipment including a much more expensive pre power amp combo, Cd player  and Vienna Acoustic Speakers.
       
      The 402 has worked flawlessly from day one.  Easy to set up, found the NAS  immediately and spotify was connected and running within  seconds. It would have been used for less than 50 hours  .
      When taking the photos I updated the software to the current version. This is automatic should you chose.
      Shipping will be at cost using your preferred method. Local pick up is possible and drop off in Melbourne provided you can wait until my next visit (probably next weekend).
      * If any fees are incurred they will be added to the final priced
