    great pics, a question for attendees

    what did folks think of the Zu Druids? i was very underwhelmed by them at CES but understand thats just my opinion and recognize they are not a speaker for everyone. also, they may have been set up poorly at CES... i heard them without the sub and found the sweet spot too small.

    I can only speak for myself, but I liked them. I found with the sub it was a bit bassy, so I had them turn it off. My old buddy Tony Ho brought some music to demo with and we listened to a couple tracks off of Carmen McRae " Live at Birdland" that had really good imaging and detail on the Druids. We then listened to Josh Turner and his baratone voice was brilliant on these speakers. I also found that even off axis these still sounded nice.

    Great pictures, thanks for sharing.

    I love the looks of the Zu sub by the way.

    Hi Tyler,

    In my opinion, the Zu Druids are yet another "love 'em or hate 'em" product. At the show this year, opinions regarding the Druids tended to be strongly positive or strongly negative, with few folks expressing indifference towards them. For example, Wardsweb and reyneman loved their sound, whereas jcmjrt truly objected to the presentation.

    Of course, the same can be said of the Shahinian speakers that I carry. And the Reynaud speakers that I carry. And so on. As I mentioned in another thread here, I tend to prefer products that have definite "personalities", which means that most of my favorite products evoke strong reactions from many listeners.

    As for myself, I really like the Zu Druids a lot, even though they sound VERY different from any of the other speakers I carry. Then again, I would never sell products that I was NOT enthusiastic about - that would drain all of the fun out of my little business...

    Cheers,
    Brian
