Default Re: Listing of amps that ZED made

Just purchased my first Zeds (2-usa2075's) I'm in love

I have to restate this, didn't realize my HT recever was Zed, explains why I was never happy with the newer one

Default Re: Listing of amps that ZED made

I have one of those ugly Boss audio amps, they're the "CLR" series. White heatsink & body, clear plexi cover over I'd say 75+% of the front, all the lettering is done in gold. I knew it was a Zed, but didn't know it was nearly the same as the US Acoustics of that era. Cool to know.

IIRC, I read somewhere that the specs Boss gave were OVERrated by around 10%....seems they already were stepping in the wrong direction, even with a good design.

What difference is there in the pre-amp?

Boss had at least 3 different series of amps made by Zed, the CLR, the Havoc and another I can't remember. Actual Power is about half of what they're rated at by Boss. Have to be careful though because there were non zed versions of the CLR and Havoc amps as well but you can tell the Zed ones by the blue circuit board while the non zed ones have a green circuit board.

CLR, Havoc and Chaos.
I'm not sure if the Rev was part of one of those series or it's own.

They have several different series that use Rev-xxx for the model number including the Havoc but the Havoc were the only ones Zed made as far as I know. Don't think the Chaos series were the ones I was thinking about though, the ones I remember were all black with red circuit boards and writing across one side of the top of the heatsink. I think they were called the US or USA series but it's been so long since I've seen one I can't remember for sure.

LOOKING FOR A REAL HIGH CURRENT AMPLIFIER, THEN LOOK AT THESE AMPS WE MADE FOR CRUNCH AUDIO. THESE AMPS DELIVER 200 watts/ch INTO A 0.5 OHM LOAD (BRIDGABLE INTO A 1 OHM LOAD) AT 12v BATTERY. THESE AMPS DO NOT HAVE ANY CROSSOVERS BUT ARE BUILT LIKE BRICKS. THEY HAVE MASSIVE BLACK ANODIZED HEATSINKS.

THE 'USX'Ě SERIES HAS A MUCH LARGER BLUE PAINTED HEATSINBK AND THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF AMPS. THE USX2050,2080,2100,2150,4065,4085 ARE ALL MOSFET AMPLIFIERS.

The Zed made amps are pretty obvious as his boards all have a particular look and say made in the USA on them.

Pre amp I think is just different crossover options and such. The Power supply etc. is apparently the same as the USX's. Boss amps are over rated by double but still perform nice and IMO look pretty nice.

I guess my remembory isn't as good as before. I too like my CLR-50, good looks, adequate power. The best thing is the plexi cover, too show off that nice blue board.

Default Re: Listing of amps that ZED made

Wow am kind of kicking my self for giving my shorted-out USX-2100 to my little sis to use for a school project...probably thrown out now. almost ten years later i find out that I had actually bought a rather nice piece of equipment (better then the crap I have now). I can could have actually fixed it too now that ive had some electronics courses. Damn it..

all this talk I had to score a used usx-2100 to ditch my alpine mrp-f250 to the wife's new car.
Mostly for nostalgia reasons. love the looks of them..

Funny thing is my older sister had one of the bigger boss audio stereo amps.. i remember she spent like $500 on it and I thought is was a pos. because of the brand name. how ignorant I was... now ill have to ask her what she did with it.

Alpine 9857/JBL MS-8/US Acoustics USX-2100, 2080/ Dayton RS-180, Vifa XT25/ Kenwood KAC-8104D/ JBL GTO1014D '05 Ranger FX4

Hawks are definitely Zed and actually quite nice pieces !! I have the Eagle and the Falcon .
That rounds out the Warrior series as there were only those three.

Their later zed pieces and were pretty serious amps for their small size.

Ok,thanks. I have opportunity to buy one of that hifonics. Whether would be a good purchase? Is that the sound from it something like a warm,or more clinical and detailed etc? I have phase linear audiophile 6,whose tweeter is a bit harsh.

As I understand it Nelson Pass worked on the prototype for the Soundstream Class A 50 and 40, but he also didn't get paid for his work.

Of course he said a lot was on the chopping block since he needed to compromise between a lot of factors before deciding on what could realistically be done in production.

What he did say was very flexible (multi-channel options to true mono....like the esx's or hifonics gen X) Also flexible pre-amp options (burr brown, or possibly choice of tubes from cheap, to high end Russian). And he wanted them to do full Power from 8 ohm to 1 ohm. His exact words were "...and if you wanted to be an asshole and run them at 1 ohm, they could do that too." If you ever talk to Stephen, don't mention 1 ohm


Near as I know, the Lanzars that he did were all the Opti with model numbers XXX.X like 100.2, 200.2, 500.2, 1000.1D (I think there's a 4 channel that's his too) They all have the sort of rounded heatsink as opposed to the squared off Korean made one, and they say "designed and manufactured in USA" as opposed to "designed in USA" on the Korean ones. Pre-amp options on these Optis are very nice.

Early Hifonics boards look very primative and sloppy (from what you can see on ampguts). Anything beyond VII have a certain look to them and I'd consider them all rock solid....barring the Lanzar Opti1000.1D which apparently have some issues with inadequate output transistors.

I saw an M&M amp on eBay a while back that the guy said was Zed made. I'd like to verify that, but he didn't post internals, so who knows? Most of his boards in addition to having a certain look have "zed audio" on them, and many of the early ones had other little easter eggs like "this is a big mutha" and such.

M&M Electronics amps were indeed designed by Mantz/Zed. I can post pics of the guts if anyone likes.

Default Re: Listing of amps that ZED made



I remember the old days of the mid-late 80's and people would rag the hifonics amps saying they sounded bad compared to RF. I always preffered them over the rf stuff and most of the other top brands of the times.
to me zed-ppi>than rf-orion-linear etc.
but all were pretty nice, just cost a ton
