Match these up with one of our low output tube amplifiers and you'll be amazed at the results. I'm talking 7-10 watts is all you need to make these sing!

Finished in a super gorgeous walnut finish (please don't quote me on it as I can't find this exact color on the Zu website), and exhibiting almost no signs of use.

These were so popular Zu has decided to re-issue the model. Cut to the front of the waiting list by purhasing the lightly used pair at a fraction of the $5k MSRP.

These will pack and ship for a flat $500 within the contiguous 48 US states. We can ship practically anywhere - just contact us for a quote.

Zu Audio - Soul Supreme Speaker Info & Specs

From a review in Stereophile written by Herb Reichert:

"An audio component must always do its jobs: play music in an enjoyable, enticing, elucidating fashion; be reliable (nothing beats a stereo rig that has two working channels every day); and let its owners feel good about themselves. I don't mean simple pride of ownership. I mean audiophile identity, as in: "These speakers represent how I believe music should be experienced in my home," and "These speakers represent what I value in audio engineering and interior design," and, most important, "These speakers get me and I get these speakers!" These were precisely the thoughts I had while reviewing the Zu Audio Soul Supremes."

More from Zu Audio:

"Soul Supreme, like all Zu products, is built around the critical human voice (A1, 55Hz, through A6 and all the possible harmonics, to approximately 10kHz). Serving this critical region of tone is Zu’s 5th generation high-output 10” paper-cored nanotech sanctified full-range driver perfectly matched with the Radian 850 based tweeter with it’s nearly 20 pounds of mass also serving as a stressed-member of the cabinet to further remove cabinet talk and electromechanical feedback. This is the same driver we developed for and use on our flagship loudspeaker Dominance and are also using in our other top performing speaker.

Features of this new driver include a maximal motor for expanded dynamic contrast and reduced harmonic distortion, lightweight neutrally-hung voice coil assembly with a paper/Kapton former, linear inline layup of the inner cone for best resolution of detail, diamagnetic shorting assembly for dynamic damping of the moving mass when playing at concert levels, nanotech-impregnated paper cones designed to support wide bandwidth and a machined phase cone with concentric maximal-length sequence diffusion for smooth high frequencies. All this is anchored to a heavy aluminum alloy frame with overbuilt bonded and riveted yoke/magnet/top-plate assembly.

The nano materials and application process reduce weight while increasing strength and propagation velocity without incurring any sacrifices in damping. We lay-up the paper pulp as a core material and essentially infuse a liquid solid matrix on it’s skin. We use nano-processed and nano-engineered materials and key components in the matrix include nanosphere ceramic balloons, nanofiber cristobalite and amorphous fumed silica. Adhesives and binders include melamine, epoxy and nitrocellulose (aircraft dope). First process on the paper core is a matrix of epoxy, nanofiber cristobalite and fumed silica. On this you have a stratum of nitrocellulose and nanospheres. Moving past the lighter, stronger, higher velocity cone you have the Eminence made voice-coil assembly with is combination of paper, Kapton, copper windings and proprietary Eminence adhesives. The center “phase” plug is a carry-over from the research and testing we did with Essence, and gives this driver a more linear management of high frequencies and broader dispersion from the directly-coupled-to-voicecoil inner cone. And as dynamic contrast and to-the-max shove and pop are of primary importance we combine the Soul Supreme with the best tweeter possible, the mentioned Radian 850 based tweeter driver.


Third generation ZuGriewe electroacoustic loading

When matched with the proper amp, ZuGriewe driver/cabinet/room loading technology as used in Soul Supreme allows this high-efficiency loudspeaker to deliver quick, deep, articulate bass performance—an attribute rarely achieved in a passive, high-efficiency loudspeaker system of this size. ZuGriewe is an acoustic technology originally developed for high performance competition internal combustion engine exhaust systems, for improving power output through pulse and pressure management, with increased bandwidth, while reducing noise and sound pressure levels over convention.

For music lovers of every era—techno, ‘70s soul, you choose...

Soul Supreme looks stunning and sounds better than she looks, but we know we all have unique views on art and sound so find out if Soul Supreme is right for you, in your own home—with our full no-questions-asked 60-day return privilege and we take care of return shipping, it’s easy. Get a set in your home, pull the stuff you really listen to from the depths of your record collection, including Sly & The Family Stone / There’s A Riot Goin’ On, and let Soul Supreme work its magic.

Amps, Engineering and Design

We love tech’ and engineering, and we love music and sound and sensation. Soul Supreme, like all Zu speakers, is designed by ear first and foremost, using engineering and measures to help isolate and realize solutions for audible improvements. Once we get any loudspeaker sounding sweet we standardize it, including the test and measures procedures and systems used to ensure the highest possible matching and quality. Zu does not engineer around someone's ideals, implementation of models or engineering conventions."
