"I don't know why it wouldn't be. "

You never know. These things probably sell like hot cakes. They could all be gone to all those waiting for them.

Thanks Steve, I always wanted to compare the LCD2/3's to my headphones. I will bring all my stuff so I can compare the amps and the headphones.

Steve had the DM945 Stand/Sub in the listening room when I was there. There was only one of them, but what a great idea. If you have for stands, there should be room for these. I am very interested.

Also at this years fest will be an opportunity to hear the new TORII MK IV which turned out to be a really amazing upgrade over the MK III!

A link to the MK IV thread: http://www.decware.com/cgi-bin/yabb22/YaBB.pl?num=1377109129

We should have a TORII SHOOTOUT (only without guns) pitting the MK III against the MK IV.

Also this year will be a chance to hear the new Super Zen Select!  Model SE84CKCS.  

Since the early days Decware's always had the Zen Amp, and the Select Zen Amp.  The later being a slightly tweaked version of the former.  Last year we introduced the SuperZen Model SE84CKC and it was better than our old Select version!  We've fixed that, and here is the first and only Zen Triode amplifier in the world with optional transformer balanced XLR inputs AND meters!

Looking forward to meeting people and giving a good listen!

After hearing my old Zen amp on the new MG944 speakers, my fiance is very interested in coming down and hanging out as well!

Steve, if you need any ears for R&D  ;D between now and then, I'll make time for you any Monday night I'm in Peoria!

As always, I have some questions and theories I'd love to bounce offa you!

you and me both Rivieraranch, as I have a pair of 945's reserved with my name on them for pickup while at the fest - see you there.

Also I have "thought" about throwing my Torii MK.III in the car for compare and contrast to the IV... haven't decided if I'll do that or not.  I'm sure there will be a III on-hand - do you think?

I don't think you'd have to bring your Mk III, should be ones on hand.

It has been 5 years....and time I made the Pilgrimage once again. From the Mystery Amp, Torii MKIV, the new CKC, Taboo III, the Mono Blocks, the HR 1 and the Subwoofer design for the DM945....damn right I am coming down (girlfriend in tow-she loves vinyl...in my big rig/living room).

I plan on purchasing the Mystery Amp that will drive just about anything I want to hook it up too. I already have found the sweetness for my SE84CS & SuperZen CKC, in two other Systems respectively.

Steve, as much as I plan on enjoying a listen to the Mystery Amp with HR 1 and the Corner Horns too (I want to hear that low end from them as you described with the Mystery Amplifier=needs a Name).....will you have a pair of Speakers like the JansZen's or equivalent to hear the Mystery Amp with?  
I would bring a pair of mine but we're driving my girlfriends Elantra that gets 38 miles per gallon vs. my F150 that gets 16 per gallon highway mileage. I would much rather drive my decked out Truck with American Racing PVD Rims to the Fest..... .

Cheers, and I look forward to seeing DeVon, Sara, Steve, Zygi and everyone else.  -Stone of Tone

These files will be played back on our dedicated MAC server via USB using our software so that we can ensure bit perfect output with no manipulations like the ones detected in virtually all of the popular playback software we've tried.


did anybody else catch this(above) in the email sent out awhile back from Steve entitled:

"DECFEST2013 New Products for this years fest."

in particular, the part about "using our software".

Is Decware in the software engineering/programming business now - for Mac OS based machines?

as a music server is my next great audio quest/objective, this particularly caught my eye...

what do those "in the know" - know about this?

No can do the Pilgrimage this year. But, I look forward to viewing it online during the week of 7th to 11th. I also look forward to seeing the Mystery Amp posted up on the Website to read Steve's notes on it.

All going-have a blast,  Stone

Man, the stars have come into alignment... My schedule has changed and I will be able to make at least Friday night and Saturday!! I cannot wait! I have wanted to attend for years.

Now for the important question.. will the Imperials (in any form) be setup? How about the corner horns? I can only hope..

Thanks for hosting this and the great opportunity.  :)
