Zu Audio knows how to put on a good show. These guys are so cool and have such a passion for music, their room was just a chill place to hang out and listen to good tunes. Zu showed their $2800 Druid and $9000 Definition speakers with a whole variety of equipment. And this isn't outrageously priced equipment, but gear normal audio fans may actually own. A $1200 Audio Sector chip amp drove the Druids while the $2200 Modwright SWL 9.0SE preamp along with a classic Luxman turntable, Manley Steelhead phono and AudioPax amps drove the big Zu Definitions.

Below, Zu's Sean Casey gives a demo of the Druids to a large audience. Keep reading for more pics and coverage of the killer Zu room. And check out our Zu gallery and coverage of the Zu Rave.

The big Definition rig in a strange curved room. Shaped like a orange slice, the speakers were placed along the back curvature.

Below, Zu's Adam watching over their extensive music collection, by far the biggest in the show. Despite the huge stockpile of killer music, the Zu guys were always asking if anyone had their own tracks they wanted to play. It's a good sign when the manufacturer is open to all music choices. A handful of rooms refused to play personal CDs...
