I made them.  I put all of my amps, TT and speakers on them.  Will, from the Forum tried one under his CSP3 and with some additional damping material found it improved his sound.  If you PM me your email I can walk you though building a pair to try.  It's an inexpensive and simple concept but you'll need a few tools.

We'll expect a full report!

ALSO

If anyone has put this in the shopping cart and thought the shipping was too high, you were probably right.  I checked   this order when it came in and it said shipping was like $40....  The options should have been: UPS Ground $18 or USPS Media Mail $5 for AL customers!  We're correcting the past orders, and the cart has been fixed.

Thanks,

Steve

It was the first thing I did when I took the ZTpre into this room. It sounds fantastic with the AVA. I had to use adapters to go from balanced to single ended so probably not getting the most out of the ZT.

The AVA really brought the bass out on my Janszens when I tried it with them. The AVA is a great amp but I still prefer the ZMA. (ZMA + ZTpre = killer combo)

ILance, if you could do me a big favor and put that ZTPRE in front of the AVA and let me know how it sounds?  It would be greatly appreciated.

I sold the Audio Nirvana to a church for use in their music system. Everybody won. The sound was greatly improved, and I got paid about what I had in the speakers to begin with. "Oh, so that experiment is over?" you ask. Well, kinda. Fact is that I bought some 8" Audio Nirvana drivers this week and will be experimenting with them using the ZOB cabinets...because I can, that's why. I want to hear what differences that they might have not just with my Rachel amp, but also with a Red Wine 'Signature 15' SS amp that didn't fare as well with the ZOB speakers. The previous 12" AN drivers did better with the Red Wine amp for some reason. At least, when hooked up to the Rachel I heard some limitations in the bass that was likely caused by my cabinet design. Anyway, photos to follow when I get the drivers up and running.

No comparison. That's just unfortunate. I tried a Red Wine 15 'Signature' SS amp with my ZOB speakers. WHY? you ask. Well, then you just don't know me like I do....I figured it might be my 'summer amp.' Ha, yah, says I, it doesn't produce as much heat in the listening room as Rachel (bless her heart). So I tries it, I do. For awhile too. Then I switch back, and like I says, no comparison. Dam, that's too bad. You just can't get away with anything. I would right ahead say the opposite if it were true, but this amp with the mods is really hard to walk away from....not that I am looking for an excuse, but I thought the ZOB speakers would compensate for any shortcomings that might be present in the Red Wine amp.

Well.......I know, I know....knowing you have a problem is the first step in recovery. Last Friday I bought an Otari MTR-12. Slight difference between it and the MTR-10 purchased earlier, but primarily the same inners. Parts are interchangeable between the two units. One difference in the two decks is that the MTR-12 will take 12-1/2" reels where the MTR-10 will not go that large.
