After years of lusting after a single ended triode tube amp, I found Steve Deckert's site on the web. After reading reviews and pondering, I ordered the original Zen Amp. When the "special edition" was offered, I traded up.
Using a Marantz 4001 disc changer and a pair of Klipsch RB5 speakers, my system is modest but, very musical.
For the first time in 30 years of serious listening, I find myself listening to the music and forgeting about the equipment. I simply cannot believe that anyone makes a better amp for anywhere near even twice the money. I am constantly amazed at the complexity of sonic textures this amp reveals.
If you truly love music and aren't married to inefficient speakers, you owe it to yourself to purchase this amp.
Steve and his staff are truly wonderful and will demonstrate what service actually means, in case you've forgotten.
