I am featuring the Zen in our Budget Audiophile column this issue, but afterextended listening, it does indeed sound much better than it’s modest size and price tag would suggest. Keeping in line with your “weakest link” philosophy, while I did use it withsome like priced components, I did spend a lot of time with the Zen as thecornerstone of a 100k system, connected to my GamuT S-7’s and DCS Paganinistack. Bottom line, the amp was fantastic and as much time as I spend with some ofthe world’s best (and sometimes most expensive) gear, I came away highlyimpressed with it! This is a great little amplifier that we are awarding one of our Exceptional Valueawards for 2010. I will make it a point to suggest this one to anyone that I know is looking for a small but mighty amplifier.
