ZEN CDP compatibilty?
06/13/06 at 19:02:54
 
Hi guys,

This is my first post here, so I wondered if I might ask a wee question.

I'm in the UK, in a marketplace dominated by little speakers and 'PRaTy' solid state amps..

Reading through some internet review - I came across the zen, Decware and the world of the SET.  Now I fancy importing an se84C.

I've recently bought a pair of LOTH_X amaze speakers and i hope their claimed 96db/w sensitivity will be enough for 2 watts of ZEN-power!  However, I'm a little confused over CDP compatibilities..  Will it be OK to hook the zen straight up to my CDP that outputs 2V ?   This is pretty ,much an industry standard, but I couldnt help but notice the unusually high output of the decware modded spinners (3.5v!)

Does the 'z-box' address this 'problem'?

Many thanks
D G Mars

Welcome DG..... I will echo on what Lon has said. If the Loth-X's are capable of 96db 1w 1m then you will get it pretty loud.  2 volts will indeed bring a zenC to full power. Watch the Audiogon, they come up frequently but don't last long.
The little zens are pretty revealing. They are NOT the 50's and 60's tubey sound. They are fast and accurate.
