I have ordered my first Decware product the zp3 cant wait to hear how it pairs up with my modded Dynaco sca 35 and fostex 6.5 full range speakers in a six foot tall folded tube. Up to now I have been working on a small budget but things are looking up TT comes next probably backwords  but couldn,t wait

Just got my ZP3 12/26 so so excited!!! Without nice interconnects and an old tt with an AT440MLA cart and upgraded cables and the Dynaco needing a better set of 7199's It is blossuming  nicely.  The build quality is all that I could hope for and the funny thing is that we all notice that it smells nice.  Amazingly aromatherapeutic, Sight, Sound and smell, whats left?

More than two years have passed. . . and I love my ZP3 deeply. This and the Torii Mk III are two components I just never see leaving my main system. It's one of the most amazing products Steve has built. I'm so glad I have one!

Lon- You are spot on. I have about 100 hours on my ZP3 now (still stock tubes) and it's amazing. The Rachael amp has seen use every day since Holloween and my wife is amazed and so am I. Played some records last Saturday for company during cocktails and dinner and they we floored. I just need to upgrade my speakers now. If anyone is THINKING of a ZP3 jump with confidence because it is an amazing piece of gear. Happy listening, Chris.

I can't imagine ever upgrading my phono stage again after adding the ZP3... maybe other components, but the ZP3 is here for good.

The ZP3 was the ruin of me  :) I just had to get a  Decware pre/power amp section. I`ve just turned it all on and `Time Loves a Hero` L. Feat sounds brilliant. Room filling delicacy. When it all warms up....

One week in and I have about 40 hours on my ZP3 and it just keeps getting better! 'dark side of the moon' last night had me spellbound. I may just need to start saving for a decware preamp to add more weight as I've read in these forums. Hard to imagine it being better but, looking forward to it.

^^^ I am right on your heals, maybe 20 hours on mine.  Rolled a few tubes to my liking.  Amazingly good phono stage!  Sounds great combined with my CSP3  :)

Hey sblk,  Did the same -NOS tubes in all the slots. I converted some LP's for my uncle over the holidays and the CD's sound great. Nice n smooth great clarity. Gonna let the ZP3 break in at least 6mo before thinking bout a CSP3....have a great New Years!

ZP3 sounding so damn good!  5+ weeks with ZP3 now I will be holding off on any diffusion or absorbtion treatments until this bad puppy is at least 200+ hours broken in. Sounds so damn good now and just getting better...breathlessly good. My listening sessions have increasing in length. Will be adding Power Line Conditioner (blue cirlce PLC FX2 Xoe 6outlet) in the next week. I installed a Hubbell  HBL 8300 hosp grade power receptacle this weekend in preparation. And, thinking bout buying Iso-acoustics speaker isolation stands for the Lores at the NAMM Show this coming weekend. Things are moving along very, very nicely!  8-)
