Hi from Virginia
02/02/17 at 02:28:34
 
Hey good people. I'm hoping to get my first tube amp to drive my Omega speakers and would love it to b a Zen Triode.

Hoping to find a used one but they don't seem to come up for sale very often.

Welcome! Great speaker match up with Decware gear!

On the positive side, Zen amps don't tend to sell for a lot when they are posted (sadly).

Just keep checking in on the forums, keep an eye out on Audiogon and eBay and something will pop up.

Thank you both for your replies.

I saw that amp for sale but it is out of my price range. Thanks though.

I've been looking on audiogon and eBay for a bit. Not a whole lot of Decware amps out there at the moment. I guess that means people are happy with them.  :)

I did try to sell my Zen amp a few years ago...I couldn't get what I thought it was worth, so I kept it. I'm glad I did too, because now I've got it in to Steve for the UFO upgrade and it's going into a dedicated small computer room system!

So yeah, people either upgrade and need to move the amp to afford the upgrade (which is what I was attempting) or they keep the amp for a long time.  :)

I called about ordering a new amp but the wait times are way to long right now.

Hello fellow Richmond dweller. I am in Quinton (New Kent County), about 20 miles from you. I have a pair of Omega's also and some Decware gear if you are interested in a listen sometime. Take care,, Chuck

Oh yes Chuck I would love that. Maybe we can do a speaker comparison? I have some Omega 1.5 similar to the new ones Declare is going to sell with the dual drivers. Mine has the smaller cabinet though.

There's a good deal on a Carina that just came up yesterday in the classifieds here if you're interested. It will probably be going fast.
