Zu Audio Mark 4 Shipping included very nice upgraded caps and resistors per 08 upgrade [Expired]


no longer for sale

I just got these and love them really some of the most engaging non fatiguing speakers I can remember. I found a set of my dream speakers at a price I can afford so they have to go price includes shipping to lower 48 states. They are the Zu Druids MK4 with upgraded Mundorf caps and Dueland resistors. Had them connected to a Yamamoto A08s amplifier and they sounded marvelous. I would rate them an 8-9 cannot see a scratch but a 7 for age and since I am second owner since others do. They sounded wonderful with my Peachtree Audio Decco that was modified by factory also listed will do a special price on package. Pleas feel free to ask any questions. All offers appreciated but may not be taken. I have original boxes packing and spike kit. Here is the end of a review plus Google for many great reviews. The looming $20,000 question I just know how certain readers will ask this one. If one added the $2,500 Method sub, do the Druids now become fully competitive with the world-famous Avantgarde Duos? Frankly, the Zu Cable Method deserves its very own review. It too is cut from a different cloth by offering not only high efficiency but a 40Hz 1st-order low-pass which makes it perfect not just for the Druids but the Gallos (and other nearly full-range speakers that merely lack the full last octave). For today, I will merely say that yes, extending the Druids' bass to 20Hz with the external active subwoofer competes directly with the celebrated Duos in the areas of scale, extension, dynamic jump factor and emotional involvement. So yes, a $5,300 three-piece system can compete with a $20,000 one. That makes them equal but not interchangeable. The Duos offer stereo bass down to 20Hz and will thus load the room differently. They also have more apparent fine detail from the upper midrange on up. The Druid/Method combo is more seamless and coherent. By virtue of their extensive adjustments, the Duos can be voiced from excessively lean, zippy and aggressive to laid-back and fulsome and anywhere in-between. The Druid is pre-voiced at the factory and always fulsome and warm. But if musical conviction is the core qualifier (and high sensitivites are the key that explains why this would be so), it is a meeting of equals. Considering how the Druids' cost differential is assisted, in part, by domestic manufacture without the usual importation/distribution fees and punishing currency exchanges as well as reliance on old-fashioned cabinetry rather than high-pressure injection molding, this makes the Druid/Method combo a unique proposition: Pure method, zero acting and no madness whatsoever. More succinctly, the Druid on its own is a bona fide statement speaker of exceptional balance. If you have any ambitions of jumping off the ol' audiophile hamster mill, the Druid could be your ticket to sanity. I suspect that for many, it'll be the end of a long and often convoluted and expensive journey...
