The Zu Experience
Sensing that Zu's usual fare was not my first choicethere wasn't anything remotely related to classical or classic jazz to be foundIan picked Illinoise, a folksy, existential, spacey, and highly amusing album by Sufjan Stevens. Then came Fleet Poxes "Helplessness Blues." Zu Audio's Definition 4 loudspeaker ($12,500/pair) and Event cabling ($1500) were producing impressively direct thanks to a Technics SL-1200 turntable with Audio Mods arm (approx. $2000) with a Zu DL-103 cartridge ($439), Melody Pure Black preamp ($5000), and Audion Black Shadow monoblock amplifiers ($12,000).
