Hello, I have had my Zen Torii 3 for 3 weeks. While it is not fully broken in it is magical. The amp will not cause any brightness, but there are trim controls for bass and treble to ensure the best match with your speaker's impedance.
The Torii likes a very good preamp. I run CD's directly from my Emotiva ERC-2 and Musical Fidelity M1DAC. I play LP's through my AVA Super PAS 3i, using the tubed phono stage through the tape outs and it is sublime.
With the Torii clarity, the stiffly choked power and the full tubed rectification, I think you too will agree
it is the best choice. If you don't, you may return it or
sell it to someone who does not want to wait for theirs...
If you are near Omaha you may hear mine.
