Gorgeous!  Loving the '596' !

The 596 is a wonderful tube.  I will be spending time to find the right power and pre-amp tubes to go with it.

Congrats to Frank I for being mentioned as one of the inspiration's for the new Taboo Mk III on Deware's site:

 

Quoting Steve Deckert "The Zen Taboo has become a popular topic of conversation among head-fi users all over the world... and this was from an amp designed for loudspeakers with the headphone jack as an afterthought!  


In fact if not for Head-Fi's Frank J Iacone's request for a headphone jack on his Taboo, Head-Fi members may have never discovered the Taboo's potential with Planar Headphones!"

 

Nicely done Frank!

+1. As well Frank, it was your review of Taboo that alerted me to both it and Decware.

What Taboo and now CSP2 has done is realize the potential of my LCD 2 rev 1 to an exceptional degree and help me rediscover my music. Obviously, the same goes for many other head-fiers.

Thanks Aidee. I really enjoyed my time with theTaboo and the new one looks awesome. I will need to hear one.

Interested in this vs WA6-SE

OK...The wait begins.....

 

Taboo MK III on order.....biggrin.gif

 

Maple base, Gold volume know, currently going with 2-4 Pin XLR's in front...That could change before parts are pulled. Any opinions on this are appreciated!

 

 

 

 

I am interested in how it matches up with my CSP2+ and how it should sound with the HD800's and HD650's....I know it will be a killer with Planers.

 

Let the new wait begin!

The taboo is a really amazing amp,  it really hits those lower registers hard while retaining clarity throughout.  I don't think anyone will be disappointed with it (I own an MK2) in its stock form.

 

Oddly enough I used it alot with my 770 pro/80 as its hard to use open air headphones in such a noisy apartment and the difference between a warmish neutral/sterile output and the taboo is huge.  The thump, the kick just really comes to life compared to any other amp I paired those specific headphones to (they have been with me since the beginning, even if I sold them once before I repurchased them again!)

 

Obv it paired well with my LCD-2, there are millions of accounts for that.

 

Unfortunately, due to situations in my own life I may have to part with mines but the time I spent with my taboo, and when I am rich in the future the Taboo MK-X will never be forgotten!

+1. Taboo does clarity amazingly well, across the spectrum. Which I think is because of a high level of resolution and dynamic contrast.

Sorry to hear you and taboo may part ninji. As you say, when you are rich...

Can any of you comment on using the Woo Audio WA2 as a pre amp for the Taboo?
