NEW Decware Amplifier
06/05/06 at 21:55:54
 






Say hello to the new Select Zen Triode model SE84ZS!  It will be on the site within a week of this post. This amplifier has many improvements over the SE84CS it replaces. Cost is $875.00 with premium 6P15P-EV tubes included. Can still run EL84's as before. World voltage power supply is now standard.  Hardwood base is solid walnut, also available in other hardwoods, including exotics.

We will be selling the first 10 of these amplifiers for $799.00  !!!

Details will be available on the site soon.  A lot of work has gone into this amplifier and I hope everyone is as pleased with it as we are!

Happy listening


Steve Deckert

Looks good. Maybe it's me but it looks like a lower or sleeker profile. Maybe longer? Anyway looks good!!  ;D

Looks very nice, Steve.  Excellent sound has always been Decware's strong suit, but now fit and finish have caught up too.

Peace,
MikeS

Thank you. The amp has been stretched yes. The plate dimension is 6.5 inches x 14 inches plus add another 3/4 inch for the wood chassis. This is significantly larger then the 6 x 10 footprint it once had. The rather sacred tube layout/spacing is unchanged.

This is the production model.  The binding posts are heavier then WBT as well as more attractive.

Looks real nice, I'll take the wood look over a metal box anyday. The more I looked at it though I kept thinking somethings missing here then I figured it out there's no logo to be seen?  Dave Smiley

How is the circuit different?  What are the topology and component changes if any from the previous version?
ie, still using Auricap caps, etc.?

I'm more interested in how it sounds than how it looks Smiley
(though cosmetics can be the icing on the cake too!)
Steve: Any comments on the sonic differences between the above and a Select-Ex?
