Snappy looking logo for First Watt, too, IMO.

Hmm... I'm struggling my way through the brain filled up with garbage and busy work. My time space for DIY audio is now eaten up. So, good price for Zen X ? The original provided by the trustworthiness? Yeah, I would order one completely faricated Zen X. Nevertheless, since I'm here in DIY corner, I wonder whether the kits would be also available.

Expecting much ...

No, and in that case they will definitely be the cheapest
amplifiers I ever sold.

However, I expect that the DIY crowd that flinches at $400
for a chassis will not be flooding me with orders.

Nelson,

That is for sure. I still may be tempted to purchase one just to compare it to my Zen IV and to be one of the first one on the block to own one. Nelson, are you going to use the same dealer network as you do for your Pass Labs gear? Best of luck with your new endevour. This will be a great move toward bringing high end gear into affordability for all to enjoy.

Might I suggest adding a remote controlled preamp with good headphone outputs to the series? That would get my world rocking.

If Nelson positions it as a basis or platform for DIY experimentation or testing, it could be very successful. Considering volume wholesale verse individual retail for parts, I bet the cost of these new amps is not a lot more then a high quality DIY build.

I'm warming up my solder sucker and building extra outboards!
