I have a Superzen and Zstage. I have commented at length on this forum about the happy combination. The Zstage makes the sound versatile as to what you can achieve.

I think it would be great to see these aftermarket parts offered by Decware. Or, maybe they can install if I send them the parts. I am not comfortable doing the work myself.

@ LR ~ I have a 96/24 FLAC needle drop of A Day At The Races.  I can upload it to a dropbox account if you want to try it out and see if it's any better than what you have.


It's been 25+ years since I've heard that off Vinyl - yeah, I'd love to sample that and see if it's better than all the CD versions out there.

I'll PM you my Dropbox.

Cool, in the Decfest 2014 Thread, Steve mentions he is working on a new Preamp an Single Ended Triode. Awesome! Not available at the Fest, but coming in 2015. ....count me in.

Also; In more rock/pop and a lot cool things going on in the background; All is Dream by Mercury Rev. I find the recording to pretty nice.

I found a better 12au7.

Thanks to Brent Jessee.

It is a 12au7 Mazda greyplate, 1960s, made in France

From Brent Jessee:

New old stock, original and white Box. Grey plates, very similar to the very rare Mazda silver plate tubes. These are also hard to find in the USA. Excellent, 1960s vintage long lived 12AU7 types with the distinct European vintage flavor that a modern tube just cannot capture! These have the sweetness and dynamic punch typical of Mazda


Try tube rolling the 12au7, it makes a big difference in the sound.

My result:

Higher resolution and detail

Bass punch (a big difference)

Livelier

It is smoother than the RFT 12au7 pictured above.
