Zu Soul Superfly

I just ordered a pair of the new Zu speakers on a whim. I was going to wait for information, but the fact that they threw in the free superfly upgrades to the first 30 people got me.

From a similar thread it sounds like some of you guys have heard the speaker despite information only being released today. I'm wondering what you can share about it?

Also, I am really hoping it works with a Firstwatt F1 amplifier. Can anyone comment as to that? I know the Druid's and Essences worked OK.
I have a pair of Soul Superflys on order and I really appreciate all of the posts and recommendations, set-up advice, etc., particularly Gopher and Phil whom I have exchanged a couple of emails with.

It will be interesting to see if my custom 4 1/2 wpc 421a SET amp will work for me in my smallish room, but if not, I have a lot of options based on all of the valuable information on this thread.


I'm sitting where Irish is sitting, except the speakers are the Omens and the amp is a DIY 2A3 SET. Speakers are not due to ship until end January, so it's fun to read these posts in the meantime, even if they're about a different Zu speaker.
My current speakers are Tekton Katz Meow and sound fantastic. The Zu's will either push the Tektons to a 2nd system, find a place in that 2nd system, or be sent back. We'll see.
Just a clarification / expansion on the Aleph amps that Gopher / Fred has referred to. They are my amps out on loan to him. They are Aleph clones built by Tim Rawson: 70 to 80 wpc SS mono-amps that run in full Class A. Excellent amps that run very hot. The fact that he says they hold their own against these other fine amps tell you just how good they are. Some of the best SS I've ever heard.
If anyone on or near Long Island, NY is contemplating buying a pair of Cosmic Carbon Superflys, please let me know.

Seeing the Superflys offered in Walnut and realizing they might actually fit in with a furniture scheme my wife would approve of has me desirous of working out some kinda swap finishes.
Isnt that a kicker when they go and add a nice new finish like that? I just got an Ampino hooked up to my Superflys and am liking what I am hearing.
