    Original IC part.
    Hi again,

    Our very own @IceUul has contacted me to offer to loan the Laconic Zana Deux Micro he is buying from @t3hwx9 to our European Friends.

    For starters, here is the main thread, http://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/laconic-zana-deux-micro.3170/
    along with some first impressions from @Marvey http://www.superbestaudiofriends.or...ransformer-coupled-amp.1091/page-6#post-91257.

    Please list your username AND location to see how we set that up. Friends only for now, except if your an acquaintance and a Friend can vouch for you. EU Friends only for now at least since it is exclusively 230V.

    It's a go!

    The package (@IceUul's personal unit and one dedicated to a loaner tour) is on its way. Last time it took 3 weeks to be delivered.
    Loaner unit:
    [​IMG]

    It features a DIY cooler mod and 12AX7 input tube (the stock one is so-so. It's recommended to find some roll-able options)

    Also forum-talks-warning: be careful with a pre-output if you're gonna try it. Better not to hot-plug the interconnects.

    Today loaner unit arrived, inserted tubes and plugged it in... first impressions are very positive.

    I am going to hand it over to @Priidik this week, so he will hand it over to @dark_energy, i am expecting this will ship out to next EU member in middle of the February.

    As requested by IceUul I threw out the fan.
    It won't get too hot, but when it does the cover is not too difficult to remove. I will not advise to do this, never the less. The sticking out resistors have 130V on them.

    Actually, I'm happy to skip this one, on reflection, and make the wait shorter for the person after me on the list. Take me out of the order, please @MrButchi!

    After this loaner program ends, this unit is going for sale here.

    Loaner participants are first, friends second, contributors 3rd.

    Price will be 375€ shipped and paypal F/F or SEPA payment to me.

    I hope the last loaner participant can ship it to new owner.

    Just received it. I already gave it some time to warm up a bit while I ate something, but so far it doesn't seem to impress me much. I hope the real ZD and ZDS sound quite a bit better than this.
