GETTING STARTED TUBES Your amp comes with premium tubes. The output tubes are made in the St. Petersburg, Russia factory previously known as Svetlana. These special tubes were originally designed for video applications in the Russian military. Because of this, they have much wider band- width than common audio tubes.
The output tubes have a glass temperature of 200 degrees centigrade by design, and you can be assured that they will be that hot if you touch them or your cat decides to lick one. The last heat related comment is this - turn your amp off when your not using it. Tube life is directly tied to hours of operation so there is no point wasting it when your not listening.
CIRCUIT DESIGN The Zen Taboo amp is a combination of simple yet unique circuit design, high quality parts selected for their signature, intense quality control, and layout. The small size makes pos- sible the art of hand soldering the entire circuit with only parts leads and no hook-up wire.
Once you have your first out of body experience during a late night listening session we have a forum on our web site where you can share your experi- ences with other Zen Taboo owners and get tips on set-ups that really work well. LUCID MODE Lucid mode is an alternate signature that your Taboo can have at the flip of a switch while you listen.
The Taboo has on average 0.6 milivolts of AC hum which is staggeringly low for tube gear. You shouldn’t be able to hear any hum, ever. Should your amp require service for any reason please return it to Decware so we can dis- cover the cause of the failure and make the proper repairs.
