Decware Zen TORII Jr.

Posted in What's New with tags , , , on September 20, 2015 by Decware



After updating many of the amplifiers in our line with UFO transformers, we applied the technology to a brand new amplifier, shown above, called the TORII JR.  It’s a minimalist version of our popular TORII MK4 and you can get into one at the attractive and limited introductory price of around $2500.  Available mid September 2015.

Decware Direct Stream Digital DAC / Recorder

Posted in What's New with tags , , on January 24, 2015 by Decware



We’re pleased to bring you a practical solution to hi-resolution digital by taking a professional grade DSD recorder from Tascam and designing a unique transformer coupled output stage for it! We’re excited to say that the combination of these two things greatly exceed the sum of their parts. The model number is ZDSD (Zen Direct Stream Digital).

While you can use this as you would any DAC, it’s design makes it possible to eliminate all the variables that cloud digital’s performance. For example, the plastic disc and transport can be eliminated. Or the computer and all of it’s required software can be eliminated, so you won’t have to worry about what audiophile grade USB cable to buy.

This is possible because the ZDSD uses memory cards or USB sticks that simply plug into the front. This makes digital playback possible without a transport or a computer and offers a 100% hardware solution that always works. It always works because it’s not a programmable gate array and has no firmware to update. It plays standard and hi-res formatted files including DSD64 and DSD128.

The Decware output stage in this device is a real ass kicker with adjustable output levels and no tubes, just high bandwidth transformers that allow the full voltage of balanced outputs to become available on the custom installed floating silver RCA output jacks.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention it records in all formats too!  That means you can make DSD128 recordings of your albums without having to purchase a single piece of software and without worries about running inferior hardware. The Burr Brown A to D in this machine uses a temperature controlled 1 PPM clock which is as good as it gets and your recordings will sound analog.

ZMA Product of the Year Award

Posted in Reviews, What's New with tags , , , , , on December 20, 2014 by Decware

The Zen Mystery Amp wins Tone Audio Magazines Product of the Year Award for 2014!

Here’s a page from Tone Audio Magazine:


We sent a ZMA to Tone Audio Magazine in hopes they would like it enough to review it.  Well, they ARE going to review it, in fact they’ve been working on it since August!

Recently we were notified that the ZMA will be awarded Product of the Year by Tone Audio.

This is big news for two reasons.

1) It means the ZMA sounds better than amps over 16 times it’s price due to a private e-mail from the reviewer.
2) Tone Audio doesn’t hand out awards to everyone who shows up at the soccer match! … like other magazines.

Needless to say, we’re pretty damn happy!   Cheesy

If you’re new to the Zen Mystery Amp, it all started with this post here:

Decware Monitor Ads

Posted in What's New with tags , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2014 by Decware

As many of you may have noticed, we have updated our page for the DM945 (Decware Monitors) and are running the following ad out in hyperspace:


The ad links to a custom version of our speakers page that includes a self starting 1 minute video at the top.

Since the ad brings in many new customers who’ve never heard of Decware… most would land on the normal speakers page, scroll through the brief pictures of speakers, think “OK, another speaker company…” and then bounce right off the page to something else.

Adding a video at the top gives potential bouncers information about Decware they otherwise would have never known.

Since this page will likely become indexed by Google and other search engines it is possible that you may land on it yourself at some point, and we just want to make sure you understood what was going on.

Here is the page:
