"The Decware Zen Triode 25th Anniversary Edition"
If there’s a match made in sonic heaven, this is it. The original Zen Triode is known all over the world for its exceptional sound. Possessed by the Sonic Gods and the compulsive tinkerer that he is, Steve Deckert decided one day to make the ultimate version of the Zen Triode for his personal use. Legend has it that Steve was so blown away by the sonic improvement, that he felt compelled and behooved to mass produce the product for his devoted customers and the rest of the music-loving world. The 25 Anniversary Edition was born. Thank you Steve!
The sonic symbiosis between the Decware and Nenuphars is unprecedented in my experience. They truly compliment and bring out the best of each other. Haven’t had much sleep since I took delivery of the amp three days ago. I could not stop listening! The sound is so bewitching and addicting. Vocals so rich and pure. Listening to the spoken-word recording of “Der Mord im Tale von Bascombe” from Bookstream, I could have sworn there was a real person between the speakers! Detail and resolution are unparalleled in my experience. That certain magic and refinement that only SETs can conjure are present in spades. I am running out of superlatives! Just listen and experience the magic!

ORIG POST 08/04/2021: In my never-ending quest for “the absolute sound”, never have I heard speakers that tricked me into thinking I was hearing live acoustic instruments playing in real space better, longer and “more convincingly” than the Cube Audio Nenuphars.
The Nenuphar is the “flux capacitor” of my stereo time machine. This is what makes sonic time travel possible!
Last night was a magical experience. The moment the stylus hit the record, I was whizzed through the sonic wormhole emerging in 1963 at Carnegie Hall, smack in the beginning of The Weavers’ rendition of “Ramblin’ Boy”! Never heard this cut reproduced with such spooky realism. The audiences’ cheers and applause enveloped me in a 3D manner, each set of clapping hands clearly discernible. Magic! I was laughing uncontrollably while tears rolled down my cheeks - no bull! The sheer naturalness of the Weavers’ voices singing was eerily real and so hauntingly beautiful. “Guantanamera” almost made me swoon! Listening experiences like this justifies all the sufferings and sacrifices we audiophiles had to endure and make just to hear a few moments of sonic bliss!
The Nenuphars are crossover-less, high efficiency, full range widebanders. Revolutionary innovation and novel design by Grzegorz Rulka and his Polish team of audio engineers eliminated the shortcomings that usually plague speakers of this type - namely the tendency to shout and truncated frequency extremes. The drivers are wired directly to the WBT binding posts ensuring the most direct and shortest signal path from your amplifier(s). There are no unnecessary electronics or connections to corrupt or degrade the signal. Simple is best and this is audio at its simplest. Once you’ve heard this level of sonic purity, there is no going back. The experience is transcendental! Here are some of what the audio industry’s most respected reviewers say about these game-changing transducers:
“Perhaps the most perfect speaker available today! Total Magic!” - Peter Breuninger of AVShowrooms
“Nenuphar delivers the music with undisputed realism and immediacy.” - Matej Isak of Mono & Stereo
“Reviewing the Nenuphar was a personal highlight in going on two decades of reviewing here and elsewhere.” - Srajan Ebaen of 6Moons
“Nenuphar emerged as one of the very best speakers I’ve ever heard.” - Dawid Grzyb of HiFi Knights
