I've been looking at alot of speakers that are high efficiency for the Torrii, since right now I have a system that's not set up for use with tube amps...

nice to see all the options on Decware's site, leaning towards the HDT design right now, I guess I'll just  sit back and relax until the Torrii is delivered, any suggestions on speakers? looking for the surreal type 3-d type experience, so I can just hear things that shouldn't be ale to be heard, realism Smiley  ..

Just pulled the trigger yesterday for two new Toriis. Steve said he had a waiting list of 54 folks. At two amps per week, that is a wait.

Thanks Lon. I have a pretty good spot on the list. I was very impressed by the length of the list. Bodes well for Decware business.

I've had mine for a few weeks now. Some of the best money I have ever spent. Well worth the wait.

I received e-mail notification that the Torrii is on it's way, it will be nice to have a new amp in My system... I don't get rid off things so it will stay in the system indefinetly; btw, it's My first tube amp, really like what's been said about it and the aethetics are very pleasing.....

Probably a good thing at some abstract level. Decware is much less expensive than other equipment we might see as competitive, but it shouldn't be an impulse buy. Decware strikes me as representing a truly zen, "less is more," Einsteinian "make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler" model. Not every buyer is suited to that model. I think one of the things about the wait time is that it encourages scouring the user manual and spending time here in the forums. All good.

I received the Torrii and the tubes today... packed nicely for it's journey.  After placing the amp in it place and hooking up the power cord and rca connects and speakers lines, I installed the tubes..  I probably went out of sequence per the instructions, but all is working very nicely.  

A very nice way to spend the afternoon, anyway, decided to listen to david wayne.   After about five hours of operation, the amp started to go from nice sounding with a very interseting presence, due to the quietness and harmonics to 3 dimensional.   I really enjoyed hearing the change, the instruments basically originating from the side and also what seemed to be from behind.

Excelent, as far as the volume, it plays loud enough for Me and even louder than that.

Ah!  So it begins! You are really going to enjoy your amp as it burns in and settles in and in a month you'll be spoiled with rich seductive sound. Smiley

You've just changed your listening life! Congrats.

Now my appetite is getting whetted. I don't even want to admit to myself what $ I have committed to, and I haven't even bought the speakers yet! Congrats vmax, and enjoy! And please report on your progress.

years after some of your other amps have given out, I know that's happened to Me, your Torrii will possibly just need a couple of new tubes, and still sound great..not a bad investmen of $.

speakers, yeah that's something I was thinking about too, I bought the planes for a couple of designs here from Decware, just have to tool up some time in the future to build the cabinets..
