Full review of the ZMA in Tone Audio.  Glowing might be an understatement!  Review starts on page 162.

That was some review.  I think I should avoid any contact with a Mystery Amp otherwise I might be tempted to divorce my Torii.  So I will continue to enjoy my current setup, not knowing what I'm missing. Besides, I'm not a detail freak but a Music freak...sometimes for me more detail does not translate to more musical.  Mark.

I'm right with you Mark, though the real reason I didn't sell a bunch of stuff and order the ZMA is that Steve told me he couldn't put a treble cut circuit in the amp, a deal breaker for me.

Mark...the ZMA could easily be called the Zen Musical Amplifier.  The liquidity of the amp is spectacular.   The detail isn't to the detriment of the music at all.  In fact quite the opposite.  It allows you to hear further into the music.   Thank you Steve for making such an awesome amp.

Nothing I didn't already know.

I still say the ZMA has harmonic content like I've never heard before.

Great review...did I just feel the queue for product get longer? That's ok, I am never in a hurry after I place an order with Steve. Patience is a lesson I need to revisit often. Happy listening, Chris.
