The Dirty Weekend Six is a full platform revamp in excess of the discontinued Omen Soiled Weekend, only the dimensions and popular good seems and tone stay. The Zu Audio DW6 is a balanced slice of the fidelity and precision of Union 6 drenched in the heat damp and full tones of Omen.
Did somebody flip up the heat in here?
Have you ever paid $1,599 USD for some filthy weekend six? We suspect that a lot of individuals will soar at the option to get some on September 1st and even think about two of the upgrade packages that are obtainable.
The speaker has been redesigned from the ground up to fulfill, with noticeably improved resolution, bass by means of treble, with deeper bass extension and smoother in all places, trying to keep that effortless going and often likable allure.
The Zu Audio Soiled Weekend 6 is successful, wide-bandwidth, with a smooth off-axis transition, serves up big stereo, is rugged… a loudspeaker that responds to your music with agility, precise timing and wealthy tone.
That appears to be like a good deal of guarantees and waking up by yourself in the early early morning but we digress.
The Zu Audio Soiled Weekend Six taps the operate carried out for their Collection 6 loudspeakers, wholly leveraging the Union Six’s extra useful and impressive cupboard and inside acoustic design and style which actually enhances the general performance more than the useless Omen Filthy Weekend.
For additional about what is going on with the cupboard refer to the Zu Union 6, but know that in this design the marginally fiddly flooring gap tuning is absent mainly because they had been ready to put the exit interface out the back—and nonetheless you can location DW6 as shut as two inches from the wall at the rear of it.
Implementation of this new cabinet intricate dovetails relatively very well with their warm and prosperous sounding Zu260-ND 10” [26.2 cm] complete-vary driver in strategies that impress even us.
The DW6 provides further bass, with extra bass element thanks to the new cabinet structure. It has improved midrange clarity, thanks in large section to the new cabinet which lowers external and interior sound, and improves treble and overall transparency and transient resolution—to various levels based on the upgrade deal.
One issue that did not transform was previously mentioned talked about 260 total-array driver, with its much less rigorous, undercut magnet procedure offering it that attribute easy yet expressive sound.
Another unchanged merchandise is the tremendous tweeter which extends the significant frequency response to 22kHz—acoustic crossover position involving FRD and tweeter also remains at 12kHz. Possessing the large majority of the seem field (90%) emanating from the full-selection driver would make for a pretty cohesive and unified wavefront.
Zu is also providing the Filthy 6 with a better excellent complete level in excess of the previous Omen DW. Walnut and hickory are finished to a finer/flatter surface area finish, with interstage wonderful sanding between best coats, developing a deeper, additional crafted looking wooden end.
Painted finishes are also lower to a flatter floor and also characteristic interstage sanding in between coats—results resemble monolithic good honed stone. Rear-exit port is trimmed in felt, and the bottom is prepped, sanded and lastly concluded in black epoxy composite.
