EMack-Welcome to the Decware forum. There is a lot of great knowledge, opinion and experiences here. I think I researched Decware for about 6 years before I bought my first Zen 2 watt amp which I used for a few years to prove to myself the low watt concept. The sold off all my gear except turntable and cd/dvd player and purchased our ZMC-1/ZP3/Rachael/Omega's have been happy as heck with the decision. Read Steve's articles, ask questions and flip thru the forum. Happy listening, Chris.
P.S. If you get our to rain soaked Santa Cruz California you are welcome to a listen.

Mark, Chris

Sold my Cary Rocket 88R a lot faster than I thought it would take to sell.  The buyer is thrilled.  I do not have another amp (sold off a lot of gear) and even if I did I wouldn't hook it up.

Not because you're suggestions aren't good and reasonable, it's just me... you see I hope that this will be my final system after many, many years of being in this "hobby"... the pinnacle of those years so to speak and so, nothing but a Decware Amp will touch my Omegas!  (Is this too dramatic??)

Chris, the Omegas are the S3HOXRS.  They are replacing a pair of ERR's, which I also have a soft spot for.

I've got a SE84UFO2 on order and slated for these and that will be the first and hopefully only amp that will be connected to them.

The system will be all Decware - ZDSD,CSP3,SE84UFO2 and the S3HOXRS.  The only components not Decware is my Oppo BDP 103D, HD800's and Power Conditioner.

As far as the break in period and the wait for the Zen, if it all works out as I expect, it will be well worth it.

Anyway, you may think that my bubble is little off level, and you may be right, but there it is.

Raymond- I do remember when my Monster Alpha Genesis mc had the suspension fail and the bottom of the cartridge was riding on the record now that I think about it. I hope your table is playing beautiful music this weekend. Happy listening, Chris.

Joman - I agree with Mark, find something to start logging some hours on your speakers. I know our 7XRS MkII's sounded good out of the box but really took off after about three weeks (around 75+ hrs) and then one night we just had a ''holy crap'' moment when it all just sounded amazing. What Omega's are arriving? Keep us posted and happy listening, Chris.

Joman, don't you have a SS amp or receiver so you can start the break in of the speakers.  If not borrow one.  Mark.

Hey All,

Just found out that my new Omegas Supers are shipping next week - YAAAYYYY!!!!

Can't wait to unbox them, admire them, set them up (usual routine) and... hook up my air amp.  Yes air amp, as in air guitar, not AYRE amp.  You see I'll be waiting for my ZEN SELECT to arrive some time later.

Now don't get me wrong, this is not negative sarcasm directed at Steve and crew, they've been great.  After all it took me over three years to get to this point so a little bit longer is no big deal.  Gives me a chance to laugh at myself, a little comic relief after a day at work.

Well Syd, I was wrong...not unusual.  Those LPs...Steamin', Workin', Cookin' and Relaxin' were recorded in two sessions in 1956.  And Miles had already started recording with Columbia, "Round Midnight" before the second session.
