Zu Audio Druid loudspeaker
HiFi the way it was meant to be and once was: able to project musical expression into your home. Zu's speaker designs are an unprecedented value in sheer fidelity and emotional projection. Largely hand-made in Utah, USA, the Zu Druid, its little brother Tone and big brother Definition all blend vintage research and lost knowledge with modern engineering, physics, materials and manufacturing to deliver the long-absent combination of tonal accuracy and crackling dynamic life to reproduced music. Druid is the value point in the Zu line. $2800/pair direct from the factory, and a little more if you want a special finish. You can drive Druids with 3 watts of super-romantic vacuum tube Zen triode power, or 300+ watts of rockin' heavyweight American iron. No customer has ever blown a Zu driver, at least not yet. Able to make a $300 receiver sing, Druids can fully reveal what can be good about a $30,000 amp. Druids are within reach for a starter hifi, and can earn their continuing role in your system if you upgrade everything else. Each slender 50" tall column is only a foot wide and 6" deep. Druids take up no more floor space than a pair of small monitors on stands, yet look much more elegant while uncorking your sound. Spousal Acceptance Factor is high, and Druids can be used close to walls. You get a design statement and great value with no compromise to music expression and fidelity. Mine are gloss red and room-filling on 25 watts of tube triode power. Check the review on 6moons.com. Srajan nails it.
