UPDATE ON ZCD
06/28/09 at 01:25:40
 
i MAY HAVE CLOSE TO 200 HOURS ON THE PLAYER AND THINGS HAVE REALLY IMPROVED IN ONE MAJOR WAY.
The sound stage has opened up considerably. You talk about wall to wall sound. I had noticed I was needing to dial in to get the center image to spot on to much. So I had looked carefully at the way my Parker Sig. 95's were positioned and realized I needed to bring out my right speaker another atleast 1 foot closer to my other long wall and WOW WOW, Now I can hear a solid front image and the sound has expanded in all directions and this player is floating my boat with unbeleivable sound stage imaginig.
I feel that this has been the most improved componenet I have ever had.
Thanks Steve for a job WELL DONE INDEED.

Glad to hear your enjoying it!
With my BLH's, the speakers do a complete disappearing act.
Soundstaging/imaging is certainly one of the ZCD's strengths!

Howdy 76doublebass,

It's great to hear that your ZCD is working so well .....  8-)

I feel the same way about mine.  It's interesting for me to hear your experiences with the ZCD since the speakers I'm running now are the "little brothers" of your Parker Audio 95 Signatures :







I am getting a mind blowing soundstage and the focus and palpability of images is a little scary at times.

I'm sure that some of this is due to the ZCD and some is due to the speakers.

If you ever decide that you could use a bit more in the "bottom end", my plate amp powered Hawthorne Augies are working out very well.

Happy listening,

Randy

Hi Randy as a matter of fact I was thinking of SAVING UP for a large
REL subwoofer. This is going to be expensive maybe 2K or more,But I have heard this sub. at RMAF a few years back with small dynamic speakers interfaced with and the bass slam and headroom was unreal.
This is the only major upgrade I need for my system to get that last bit of fre Cheesyq. response from 16 hz to maybe 80hz or so.
