  1. Nice to hear. Can you compare the Decware to any other tube amps you've owned, soundwise that is. Steve Deckert talks about the floaty, holographic nature of them which I associate with 300B amps. I do have an El84 triode amp but it uses different small signal tubes EC 88s. It is a bit more holographic than my 6as7 amp. How do you find the sound. Cheers, Anthony.
  2. Eric is great and makes beautiful sounding AMPS. I own two myself.GLWS.
  3. If be interested in that myself. Would be good to know which speakers, besides the obvious ones, work well with them too.
  4. Lovely. I read your can adjust the negative feedback and some sort of treble control. Steve Deckert is very on to the fact that most recordings aren't audiophile and offers things like the treble control on your amp and his zrock box which ( which I could do with, I've got heaps of rock and punk records that I don't play much these days that would be much more listenable with such devices).
  5. Very interesting.
  6. Woah. That's one Nice amp.. Hashimoto Trannies as well. I would love to hear it but I wouldn't be allowed to buy one. I've just purchased a McChanson El34 Set very similar to a Decware. It's been modded a bit and will go nicely with some drivers In getting delivered. They're a pair of Lii Audio and I'm putting them into Decware/ Caintuck style Open Baffles. Steve Deckert thought this driver in the barrel baffles the best speaker he's made. The drivers are relatively cheap and getting them into some local hardwood baffles wouldn't cost too much. Steve Deckerts OBs are really pricey but he's using very pricey wood. https://www.lii-audio.com/product/recommended-15-full-range-speaker-driver-for-music-loudspeaker-with-tube-amplifier-f-15-in-pair/ https://www.decware.com/newsite/ZMS2.html https://www.decware.com/newsite/ZMS.html
  7. Yeah I guess so. Smaller market. Less flea watt fans. I will take the plunge one-day. Might wait till the Aussie $ is in better shape if that ever happens again.
  8. Hi Kranky. Yes I have looked a lot at his website. I like his ideas. Still wondering why apparently so little Decware action in Australia.
  9. Has anyone here owned or heard a Decware amplifier, especially the Zen. They never come up for sale on StereoNet and a search I did for them on here came up with virtually nothing.
  10. Can the amp take the Russian 6p15p-ev video sweeper tubes like a Decware Zen. I've wanted to hear a Zen for a long time now but they never come up and the shipping costs from the States are prohibitive.
  11. The answer is at the bottom of this thread. He is fine but went in for surgery and got a bit behind it looks like. He's a 100% honest and lovely guy.
  12. That doesn't sound like Earle. He can be hard to contact and has a long leed time but once he starts building your amp he maintains close contact, with photograph updates. He takes an initial deposit, so that would be the only cash you would part with before a completed amp is ready for you.
  13. Eric is now using SILK Transformers in some of his amps. Is this the SAC Transformers from Thailand or is it a process. They do use this process and it looks like it's their process but I'm unsure about this. Anyhow, I have one of his 6as7/5998 amps and love it. It replaced a Weston Acoustics Topaz and although different types of amps (SET v PP) this is high praise. I can't bring myself to sell the Topaz even though it's just sitting there gathering dust. I don't thinks it's better it's just different and I prefer that difference. In bass and authority the Topaz wins but in subtlety and musicality the McChanson wins. It's all pretty subjective though isn't it. Perhaps I'm just a Set kid of guy. I know the first time I heard one I was captivated. One-day I'd love to hear a 300B or 2a3 from Weston Acoustics to compare. The new SILK output Transformers would be an interesting upgrade on EricS older models. I might email him and see what he thinks. He's an honest and very decent man and will be upfront whether it's a worthwhile thing to consider. Only costs $50-70 each way to post the amp back from Melbourne via AustPost.
