Thank you Steve Deckert

I'm just a line cook. I don't make much money. But, when I get home after a long day and get to listen to my SE84UFO, I'm in heaven. You could charge so much more for your outstanding products, but you choose not to. You allow this music lover a chance to hear music at a level of fidelity usually reserved only for the very wealthy.

Thanks
Brandon

Most audioholics don't believe you can get a high quality music system unless you pay x10 of what you pay for a Decware product.

When people see my amp array with the black Decware IC`s and power cords everywhere, for the first time, they all say the same thing.
" Did you make them ?"
I say " No, they`re hand made in America, point to point, hard wired, he sells them at factory prices, really good....Decware "
For all I know they think I`m bonkers. When they hear the music they never mention, or look at the amps again. Maybe they do have a glance but I see them looking at the soundstage, looking at the speakers, checking out the deck. Very English reaction.
The music just speaks for itself.

Hard not to reply to this thread. Though my system is not entirely Decware, The pieces that are Decware, are not for sale. That coming from one of those who has, on purpose, owned a mountain of different gear and ended up here.

Here, Here, or maybe that should be Hear, Hear. I too am so glad that by chance whilst looking for an audiophile grade headphone amp, I came across Decware a few years ago. My signature line with the corresponding equipment indicates that I went well beyond the headphone amp Tongue, at a fraction of the cost that I just couldn't justify paying for. Thanks Steve

Brandon,
I have to chime in as well. Luckily I stumbled upon Decware by searching for a diy tube amplifier kit. That was almost 5 years ago. The most incredible part of my journey with Decware is that the less gear I have the better the music gets, and I am only taking cues from this forum. Total immersion in music becomes a reality with gear of this caliber. So sweet it is.
Thanks for starting this thread, it is obvious we here need another reason to give accolades to Steve and company's great talent and generosity.

litefootdan and Brandon, I too started my Decware journey around 4 years ago. I wont say it changed my life but it certainly gave/gives me a perspective of LPs that is truly worth pursuing if you like sitting down and getting into music.
I needed a phono. I wanted tubes. My system needed topping off by replacing a Project tube box. I researched for months. Nothing stood apart from the mainstream units on offer. My budget could go to 1K, and I wanted bang for the buck when splashing out. Then I came across Decware and Steves` unusual optimistic approach to marketing. Could I believe it ?
Read the folks on the forums unwavering loyalty. Positivity all the way.
So, long story short. The ZP3 arrived. My whole system has now changed.
Why ? Because, as I`ve said before here, there is a feeling, a sense, a knowing, that the amps can handle top class front end and speakers.
And, most importantly, they wont be found lacking as did my system when the ZP3 started to do it`s stuff. I love it. I found jazz here as well.
Theres a thread somewhere here asking what effect the forums have had on members. I just feel humble.  :)

Lovin' the stories of some the the Decware journeys posted here. I began my audiophile journey nearly 4 years ago. I wanted a great tube driven system and a turntable capable of blowing my mind. The plan was to have all in place by the time I retired in Aug 2016'.  Searched for months and months and finally settled on Decware. Many of the posts telling tales of  'unbelievable bang for the buck benefits'  as well as the loyalty and info sharing made my decision an easy one. It's safe to say I've saved myself a lot of time, aggravation, and money on good equipment choices thanks to the guidance of many "seasoned" Decware forum members. Super Zen SE84CKC arrived Feb 2014'. VPI TT March 2014', Tekton Lores July 2014', ZP3 Dec 2014'. Room Treatments. 2M black. Zstage. Better IC's and Speaker wires since then have made a positive impact. Most nites it seems I have to pinch myself and smile due to the great listening sessions. Looking forward to many years of musical bliss.
