Zu Audio Druid Mk.4/08 Speakers ($3,400) Reviewed by Secrets

Thursday, October 2, 2008

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity has reviewed the Zu Audio Druid Mk.4/08 high-sensitivity floorstanding speakers ($3,400/pair). On first listening, reviewer Chris Groppi writes:

Very seldom do the first few seconds of listening to a new component leave me open mouthed. The aliveness and realism of the Druids are nothing short of amazing, and exceed any loudspeaker I have ever heard.

He goes on to compare the Druids to his Gallo Reference 3.1s, primarily using electronica music with deep bass:

The bottom octave was simply gone, as it should be with a limited low end. This is where the Gallos really were superior to the Druids.
