Zen Torii makes the BEST of the BEST List – Tone Audio Magazine 2011

Posted in Reviews, What's New with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2011 by Decware

There were 13 amplifiers on this years BEST of the BEST list and Decware’s Zen TORII is on it!  Prices ranged from $29,000 to $2975

DECWARE  Zen Torii MK III

$2,975-$4,875 (depends on options)

Decware founder Steve Deckert proudly proclaims the Zen Torii is “the last amp you’ll ever want.” And if you agree with Nelson Pass’ theory that there is a best amplifier for each type of speaker, the Zen Torii could be just “the best” if you have the right speakers. TONEAudio publisher Jeff Dorgay was smitten enough to purchase the Torii for his reference fleet of amplifiers. For an EL- 34-based amplifier, the bass grip is nothing short of breathtaking, and the Torii renders musical detail like Kodachrome 25.

Indeed, there’s never been a better example of specs not telling the whole story. The Torii plays louder and interfaces with a much wider range of speakers than suggested by its modest 26-watt- per-channel rating. Showcasing old-school style, the Torii is hand-wired in Illinois by the DecWare staff and guaranteed for life. American craftsmanship at its finest.

“After hundreds of hours of initial listening, the Decware Zen Torii continues to improve, as designer Steve Deckert said it would.  While the full review will be in issue 40, suffice to say that this is one of the most musically engaging amplifiers I’ve had the pleasure to experience.  If you’ve ever spent time with a great SET and thought “If this only had 2-3 times the power, I could live with it,” your ship has arrived.  After owning a number of the world’s finest SET amplifiers, I can easily support Deckert’s claim that the Zen Torii is certainly the equal of any SET I’ve owned.“
