This year we stepped back and took a look at the amp that started it all. The Z-Series amplifier. We knew we could bring the price down, because over the last few years. This allowed us to build the Z-series AP and SP amps cost only a little more than the original Z-Series so the prices weren't that far apart. Now we have brought the Z-Series into the same plant as the newer models. That lowers the price, but what could we do the make it better? We saw that a lot of the non-critical parts from the AP and SP amps could used in the new Z-Series as well. Even with some of the SQ parts we save by buying more so we can use those in the Z-series also.
