I was wondering if anyone has had the 25th mods done to their MT?

This past weekend I bought a 2012 Mini Torii that is being shipped to Decware for installation of UFO transformers and the anniversary update. Decware doesn’t know it yet. Since the unit has poly caps I am looking at performing the poly cap bypass mod. Unless I change my mind and ask them to upgrade the caps 🧢  to beeswax 🐝.

Exciting! I bet that will be a really nice sounding amp. If funds allow might as well go all the way and get the type II copper foils Smiley

If I go beeswax 🐝 it will be type I. I presently have two Zens , one with type I and another with type II. To me the type I sounds better

Interesting. Just goes to show everyone has different systems, rooms, preferences, etc. I'm glad we have these kind of options.

The Mini Torii amp is on the bench, ready for its transformer transformation (regular to UFO) and anniversary modification.

I was told that the anniversary modification has been done on other Minis before, though nobody has posted anything about it on the forum.

Steve said that the mod is very revealing and would add headroom.

Yes, I'm sure there are a number of Decware owners who don't post here; I've run into a few.

You are going to really like both the UFO transformer upgrade and the mods. The mods that I had done to my Taboo Mk IV and CSP2+ REALLY improved each component.

Stands to reason that these modifications are a gigantic step forward in fidelity.

Fact that the factory stated that there are 50 Anniversary Zen amps out the door and not one return speaks volumes.

My Mini has been up there for two weeks now to receive its new transformers and anniversary modifications. Hoping that it is done soon.

I've obtained the adapters to use 807 tubes, bought a pair of 6Y6G Sylvania militaristic tubes, reviewed the 12AU7 types in my collection.

Getting ready to receive the new amp.

Devon called today to take payment for the modifications. I should have the unit back any day. Woo Hoo!
