Waiting For My Anniversary  . . .  Z Stage
07/25/20 at 13:40:48
 
On 4/17, in the middle of the lockdown, I ordered an Anniversary modified ZStage. I thought that the wait time would be shorter, but it wasn't. Apparently DECWARE was swamped with new orders at the time.  

So today, 7/25 UPS advised that the package is out for delivery.

I have had a ZStage before so I am looking forward to comparing the Anniversary modified version with what I remember of the previous one. I have the extra pair of interconnects and power cord ready for its arrival.

Impressions to follow.

Congrats! I ordered a ZROCK2 about two weeks after yours so I anticipate another two weeks or so I'll be waiting for delivery as well.

The wait is hard. . . but worth it. Let us know how the new one compares to the old.

I am looking forward to †your impressions and comparisons as well. †My ZSTAGE has the upgraded beeswax caps, and I was considering sending it in for the bypass upgrade. †Maybe itís not worth doing the bypass upgrade, and just selling it off and to place an order for a new ZSTAGE with the Anniversary Mods. †

From what I understand the tube regulated mod can only be configured with a new order, and not added to an older version. †

I had originally bought the ZSTAGE to use with a regular 2 volt source, but more importantly to use in the future with the consideration of buying a Rachel which requires a 2.5 volt source. †With now shifting gears and looking to buy the SE84UFO25 that requires a 1.5 volt source, I think running the ZSTAGE with the ZEN AMP will cause it to clip a lot sooner but Iím sure the added dynamics and weight will sound great.
