    Overall I agree and see both sides but do believe PM’s are best. I’ve been guilty though up to the point.
    I’m just hoping to pick up a pair so I can contribute to the convo.

    Now that this thread, is rock n rollin - Has anyone tried the perforated Ori pads on the Ori?

    I would think they'd kill the bass, which is my favorite part of the Ori. But I'm curious.
  4. Wes S
    That is my biggest concern, about the bass, but I will probably give them a try, just to see. If they don't take to much from the bass, and are a bit cooler (temperature) wise, that could be cool. It is hot here in Texas!

    Well I just pulled the trigger on a like new Purpleheart Ori. Really looking forward to hearing these and adding to my ZMF collection.
    I’ll post thoughts after I receive them and get some solid headtime.

    @koover purpleheart is one of my personal favorites - what is the rest of your setup?
  7. koover
    Mine too. I run with a Mjolnir 2 and Gumby Gen 5. Balanced
    Should sound incredible. I just hope the Ori and Atticus aren’t to similar in their tuning. I know Zach has his own personal house sound with all his HP’s but I’d still like a bit of difference in their sound signatures. His tuning is in my wheelhouse so I know I’m gonna love them.

    @koover nice! We’re going to have similar setups. I have an NFB 28 now but recently picked up an MJ2/Gumby stack to try out as a probable upgrade.

    You’re gonna love it. Just watch out for going down that rabbit hole with tube rolling. At present, I have well over 60+ sets of tubes. It gets addicting.
    I really am stoked to hear the Ori’s while rolling tube after tube to get that exact sound I’ll be looking for.

    Awesome! If I were buying a new pair, purple heart is my number 1 choice.

    I’m picking up the new stack tomorrow so I’m planning to get things set up so the Gumby will have a full 24+ hrs before a potential Saturday night listening session when the kids go to bed

    @koover def keep us posted on tube combos u find u like. I’m happy to sit back and benefit from your experimentation :beerchug:

    Bought @Nick-s-f beautiful bocote Ori!! Very excited.
  13. Wes S
    Nice! I went back and looked at an old post with pictures of that set, and they are stunning.

    I am rockin with my Blackwood, and they are really really good, I can't wait to hear my Ori! Zach has got it figured out, for sure.

    I own and love ZMF Auteur dynamics, but every now and again the Ori hits the spot...superb planar bass, sweet upper mids and overall euphonic. The overall balance, detail retrieval and especially treble extension doesn't keep up to Auteur, but they are a great listen and sometimes border on magical.
