There aren't that many out in the world yet - give us a few more months, though, and I'm sure there will be plenty to read.

We may or may not be in a room at the Newport show (long story), and if we do, though we'll be playing our ZOTL40, we'll probably bring a 10 to demo after hours or in any situation that calls for it. Even if we don't, we'll probably have one at the booth we'll definitely have for the MicroZOTL2, just to show it off, and maybe we can work something out for an after hours demo. Lots of maybes!

I did hear your micro in Costa Mesa

very fine sounding amp

don't have a system right now and was thinking about the 10 hooked to a horn speaker like a altec 19

which speakers do you like with the 10 ?

I have yet to hear a ZOTL10 with a speaker like the Altec, though with that sensitivity I think the 10 would do fairly well by it. Customers have really liked the 10 with Spatial speakers and Revel M106s. It has a slightly different signature, and is only 1 watt, but Steve Guttenberg liked the Klipsch RP-150M and others liked the Zu Soul Supreme and Devore Orangutan with the MicroZOTL2, so I imagine the ZOTL10 would be even more enjoyable.

To follow up: We will be in room 208 at THE Show Newport, with the ZOTL40 and MicroZOTL2.0 and Vapor Audio Derecho speakers (93db). We'll also have a ZOTL10 on hand for anyone who'd like to listen to that one.

We did have speakers, in room 208! The speakers ended up being Silverline instead of Vapor, and we didn't play the ZOTL10, as no one asked and we were happy with the ZOTL40. Hopefully we'll get some impressions posted somewhere by someone who made it to the room.

Room 208 sounded very good at the show. I have the micro and will be ordering the ZOTL 40 from Mark in the next couple of weeks. I already know the ZOTL proprietary tech is nothing short of world class. What I don't is how the ZOTL 40 will sound in my room with my Janszen zA2.1 speakers.
