How does Taboo compare to Eddie Current Super 7? Both are in the same price range. Has anyone ever had a chance to listen to both?

I don't believe you are going to find one "Better" They are both excellent with their own sound signature and tube rolling will allow you to customize further. Two great amps.

Decware amps come with a lifetime warranty and eddie current only has a 5 year warranty, so that is something to consider as well.

Thanks everyone, both seem like super amps for HD 800 :gs1000smile:. Decware Taboo MK3's construction looks a lot like Bottlehead Crack Amp, very sexy as hell. Maybe, I can rob the bank and order both to do the comparison:etysmile:

I've got a pair of HD800 on the way. I'll be sure to post my impressions for you. Although there's lots of mentions on this thread and others that it's a great pairing.

i was pretty much set on the taboo mk3.... as i thought i had already purchased the zstage

 

but decware has some abysmal customer service... sent 4 emails received and no reply

 

thankfully my credit card has not being charged for the zstage -  so i have cancelled that order (if anyone bothers to read the emails) and have committed to a zana deux

 

just on specs it looks pretty good and i can not wait for my first tube amp to arrive

 

 

i guess it all turned out for the best in the end

Decware always responds best to phone calls rather than e-mail. This is a small family run company not some big corporation with a bank of service reps. The whole firm is only 6 people. Also per their order policy, they do not charge until they ship so nothing amazing about you having not been charged yet for the Zstage.

If they registered your order, which as it seems is a manual operation for whenever someone gets to it, you will be charged the deposit. That you will unlikely get back.

Their process, for any reason including the company size etc, is not always very easy for the client. I always had to try hard contacting them for clarity or any changes.

 

I agree it's not an isolated problem to Decware. Other small companies are difficult to communicate with. Not all though.

Hey guys, when you use your Taboo with a CSP do you just leave Taboo volume full on and adjust volume with the CSP?

That seems more logical than the other way around but I've never used a pre-amp with an integrated amp.

Thanks....

That is what I did. Worked great for me.
