Zu Druid 6
Sean just contacted me to say Defintions subs amps issue solved, no charge other than carriage despite me being way out of warranty. More reasons I'm glad I pinned my flag on the Zu wagon.

Sure Phil, my post is not to knock you for not liking 211s, just that my experience is that the decision to move from Black Shadows has never been regretted by me. And that's even after turbocharging the Shadows w Elrog 845s. Bendix I did try, no ...

Phil, too bad you never connected to 211 tubes on Zu. That's what I've settled on w Nat amps. Maybe I've given up "on the swings" some transparency and air leaving my Audion Black Shadows w Elrog 845s. But have gained "on the roundabouts" more tex...

Its 4 to 6, bypassing 5Something to do w Druid 6 meaning 6 is the new current range, first the Druids and then the Defs and Souls (Supreme).Maybe Defs 5 will be a partial upgrade to the 4?

Phil, what makes you think I have any more money after 22 years of spending in this hobby LOL? 
Zu Druid 6
Phil, any more concrete news on Defs 6? Could I ask you once more to ask you to get Sean to contact me. I've tried twice thru Gerrit to no avail. It appears Sean has sorted one customer's subs hum issue. I'd like to be next.¬†

David, Sean emailed me to say he had a potential solution prompted by yr issues. If he's resolved yr problem, that's a good omen for me. I've spent a little too much in this hobby in the last 3 years, this is going to be my last outlay for at leas...

GloriousUnicorns, we all have different requirements/preferences when it comes to amps, and spkrs.I actually now look at the whole amps/spkrs/room package as a concept.I've always listened in large rooms, this one and my previous one being 800 ft*...

GloriousUnicorns, it would be nice to think one amp can do it all, but I suspect that may be in vain.In my 800 sq ft rooms, I've run 3 lots of amps, Hovland Radia SS, 35W Audion Black Shadow 845 SETs, and currently 80W Nat Audio¬† SE2SE 211 SETs.Th...

My pleasure David, I hope it helps. I've been masochistically flying the Zu flag for 6 long years on What's Best Forum, mainly receiving brickbats in return LOL - so, its great to try and help by conversing with a fan of the brand.Certainly I'm su...

Request ground posts for Sean when he looks at yr amp modules.I'm sure you'll like the Gaias footers, some mileage there.The other thing to say David is that eight 10" woofers versus two 12" was always going to present a difference, esp rear facin...

David, Phil is right. Do not expensively spend on subs ancilliaries until you've got basic setup right. At that point if you're happy, and want to go on, my personal experience is that choice of pwr cords and fuse makes a difference.I'm stuck with...
