ZBOX Anniversary Mods?
08/24/20 at 08:49:37
 
When the 25th Anniversary Modifications were done to so many of the Decware amplifiers, did the ZBOX get anniversary mods?

I did not think of adding it to the cart to look for the options.
Thanks Lon.

Has someone here heard the before and after? Either the VR tube or one of the bypass caps?

Has Steve commented on the altered sound somewhere on the web site or here in the forum?

I have read most of the threads in this ZBOX forum, but have not seen comment on the mods.

Doesn't seem anyone has . . . I might send mine in later this year.

The VR tube mod brings better liquidity, less grain because it cleans the power.

The Bypass cap mods don't change the sound either, they just add resolution.

Thank you, Steve.
It is always welcome to get sonic assessment from you on the gear.

Happy spring!
