So I have this really unique amp that seemingly is not simply a SHA-1 without the pre. Although there are similarities, its internals are unique and will soon be modded by the Master. This amp was never given a proper name and so I have been calling it the Melos Melos. I most often refer to it as the Prototype Melos, or the Headphone only Melos; however, I would very much like to have a name for this beast. We have the Maestrobator which carlo has created, and as he will be fixing mine up, I figure we should all come up with something catchy as well.


So let those suggestions come!

You should keep it simple -- call it Yohan's Melos since mrbeanyohan of Headwize owned it a while ago. The poor guy now has tinnitus -- that's why he sold off all of his headphone gear.

DanG: This is not the one Yohan owned...as far as the seller is concerned. He said he is the first and only owner other than Mr. Melos and myself.

Maybe Yohan can let me know otherwise?

I like the Melos Zanth-1

Hm, I remember Yohan claimed that his was the only one made. Maybe he was wrong? Or maybe he's the founder of Melos in disguise?


Alright, how about the Melos SHA-0? Or even better, the Melos SHA-0.1?

Hmmm, well maybe this is not the same thing Yohan had? Or...he did own it and he was the owner of the High-Fi shop my seller bought it from? I believe my seller to be an honest man, so I don't want to say he is dishonest, thus I believe he is the only owner other than Mr. Melos.

SHA-0....not bad at all

Since it's a smaller version of the Melos, you could simply name it "Mel"
