    Congratulations Darrin.

    I’m so happy for you. I’m sure Zanden is an awesome match for the TAD speakers. Once you figure out what works, they are magical like you mentioned.

    Enjoy!

    Interesting combo. I ran my CR1s with mc 2301s, but much prefer the accuphase sound with them. I suspect that Zanden would be a lovely combination. They make lovely looking electronics, but I haven’t had the pleasure to hear them.

    Nice combo-if room allows another 1-2 feet separation on CR-1s you will truly gain a more immersive soundstage.(9-10 ft. way better than 6-7 ft center to center) It took my 9 amps before my TADs really sang with no brightness only sweetness. Glad I found my Viola symphony but I did try Zanden and they were also to my memory a lovely match.
