We've got a few new exciting happenings at ZMF:

We are now a Cayin amplifier dealer as I've found great synergy from 300b tubes over the years, more specifically with my Glenn 300b amp. The Cayin delivers the same addictive 300b sound at a fantastic price. It's quiet, and brings amazing resolve, density and extension on all ends while driving any planar or dynamic headphone with ease. I'll be going through impressions more as I burn in my personal unit and tube roll. The IHA-6 is also in stock, this may be THE $500-1000 solid state amp to match with ZMFs. The output impedance options and sound is the best I've heard from a solid state in this price range. We will have bundle prices on the website soon that you can access when buying together with a ZMF. Email us if you are interested and have a headphone on order.

ZMF Verite LTD Burmese Padauk This is a wood that I've had a small batch of and have wanted to use for years. We have about 40 sets or so worth. The big difference between African Padauk and Burma is that Burma has a greater density, closer to that of Bocote, Cocobolo and Ebony. It also has a glow to it that adds depth and chatoyance.

Sennheiser HD6xx replacement pads are back in stock. So far users have really enjoyed our replacement pads for this classic headphone series. We also have Beyer Sub Pads and later today (5.13) I will be adding replacement pads for the ATH M20/30/40/50x series. I started with the M50x's at the same time as the other pads, but it took me a while to dial in the sound. These also may fit many other headphone models. Open to suggestions on what headphones to try them on.

Salire headphone stands are back in stock We brought the process in house and have Sapele in stock. We will be adding more woods asap.

We have the Sonnet Pasithea IN STOCK, but only one unit. We also have stock of the Morpheus ready to ship. The Pasithea and Morpheus are rare birds these days as the chip shortage has made it hard to produce these amazing DACs. We hope Sonnet can provide more soon as it's the perfect DAC to compliment any system, especially with tubes as the pre-amp function really gives you complete control.

:beerchug: Love the shout-out about your Glenn amp on your website! The man deserves it after producing killer amps for us in the Head-Fi underground for 10 years. A labor of love for sure. Nice love for the 300B too!

Thank you!!!

We aren't working with ampsandsound anymore.

We are working with Decware and JDS labs on amp projects, lots of exciting stuff! The Decware specifically will be a TOTL OTL amp. The amp was designed alongside the Atrium development. It's killer.

Absolutely! I will never sell my Glenn amps, the man is a legend. The Cayin is the only comparable 300b amp that can be made available in a more wide spread fashion IMHO. Many of the characteristics are similar down to the three impedance choices on each.

Oh dang. My Mogwai is looking nervous over here, and my Crack just burst into tears.

@zach915m I was wondering if there were any differences on the cayin SS amp that you're selling compared to the original models. I've been wanting a high ohm amp for my Aeolus and Senns that's affordable forever. Can you tell is a little bit about it ?

I don't know that there's been an update to the IHA-6, I believe it's the same amp but I'm not 100% positive.

It says on your site you preferred the 10ohm tap not the higher one with 300 ohm headphones?
Yeah so far I like the slight extra edge of the 10 ohm tap in a general sense. With acoustic music or slower stuff the 120 ohm tap is great. Honestly it's amazing to have both choices on the same amp.

Wow, can You share some details? What tubes does it use? When is it going to be available and what would be the price?
