Ordered a Rachael

Should be interesting. Will get to compare side by side to a McIntosh MA5200 through Cornwall lll's.....Winner keeps the Cornwalls, loser inherits the Heresys.....

This should be the perfect amp for horns...Can't wait....

Sounds like a good comparo.  As a Rachael user, I am interested in your findings.  Are your speaker stock?

Congrats on your new amp!

Has  anyone had the chance to compare a UFO'd Rachel to the UFO Super Zen Triode? I'd be interested to know and hear their comments because I like the extra wattage that the Rachel could supply, but the little 2 watt'r seems like it's pretty hard to beat.

RaOne, you are not crazy. I've owned some very nice gear over the years - McIntosh, Tandberg, etc. - but I only recently discovered Decware. I rolled the dice and bought some Decware speakers - without even having heard them - based purely on others description of them. I then bought a Decware Torii Jr. and 3 other pieces of Decware gear, pretty much replacing my entire 2 channel system. Not the most expensive, but hands down the best system I've ever owned.

I may have to take you up on that offer after this summer!  Maybe the roots to a San Diego Decware Appreciation Club! Smiley
