Nicely done Steve.   I can't wait to hear to hear this amp at the fest.

I'm ordering the Torii JR.

I can't make up my mind, whether to get the Jupiter Beeswax I, or II Caps?

Tung-Sol EL34B's are fine with me. I look forward to Tube Rolling my Telefunken's, Ediswan's and National's in this Amp! Plus, a couple others most likely.

Then, of course after burn in, pit her against the Zen Mystery Amplifier, both, with and without my CSP3 in the chain.

I was going to get the SuperZen CKCS/UFO. However, I'm addicted to the power in Ultra Linear of my ZMA. However, the JR. with 20 per channel will be plenty enough watts to drive my now killer Adagio's. I get the UFO Trannies and Steve's sound SET objective with this Amp. Plus tube rolling of input tubes. I'm sticking with the more forgiving Beeswax I's. I'm spoiled with the biasing and balancing of the ZMA. But, at the price point for the Jr's Fidelity; totally cool to use a Volt Meter.

The curiosity of potentially preferring one over the other has me all in. I will also have to rebias a Quad of Tung-Sol KT66's in as well, eventually. However, it could drive me crazy....and I won't be able to part with either the Torii Jr. or Zen Mystery Amplifier. I will have to deal with it.
::) ::) ;D 8-)

.....One is on the way (November arrival?)! Is their still a build sheet we can look at? I will go take a look..... .

I did not see the Build Sheet Schedule/Lead Time, under Contacts>Helpful Links. Maybe, that is sent via email now/Customers in Que only?

@ stone - I have a couple of items that I still need to sell, but I'm shooting for the Torii Jr. as my next amp as well ... as I don't think that the 6c33c mono blocks will be within my budget (if they even will come into fruition).  I'm anxiously awaiting your comments on the new Junior once you get some hours on it.

I'm selling a couple more things too (two Antiques it is time to part with). The 6C33C Mono's are not in my budget either. The most bang for the buck and comparison fun lies with the ZMA and Jr. (for me).

I will certainly chime in about the Jr. and then compared to the ZMA eventually. LONG Winter up here.....cup of hot coffee in the morning with Music and a Winter Ale in the evening with Music.

Seventh day in on my Kimber KS6063 Speaker Cables. I have no reservations about selling my 3033's. With some hours on the 6063's now.......they are keepers! Unlike, the 3035's/to bright (I had for 1.5 years/I sold back in May), the 6063's are an upgrade of biblical proportions.

Now that I have my System locked in with all Decware and Kimber Select.......bring on my Torii Jr.  

Shunyata Ztron Alpha Digital power cord....coming for ZDSD!

I emailed about the lead time on my JR. ......... .

BUT:
WITH KS6063 SPEAKER CABLES-I NOW USE THE ZMA BETWEEN 50% TO 90% OF Volume.

Great adjustments at hand is my point, as listed, for the ZDSD to CSP3 to ZMA to my Acoustic Zen Adagio's!

I will be quiet now until I get my Jr.  8-) :P
