MINOTAUR is the first of our new generation of Mono block/single channel amplifiers. These are capable of full range operation for those who demand high power for midrange and lower midrange drivers in multiway systems. Its primary goal is for sub woofer operation and the controls have been optimized for this duty.

Fine build quality and looks with a laundry list of pre-amp features. Extremely efficient and of course, great sound.
I've never regretted buying a Zed product nor dealing with Stephen. If you want something that's cutting edge technology, features, and build quality that'll last for decades he delivers every time.
Just about everything else on the market is using 10+ year old technology and 90% of that is basically the same thing with a different name brand cut into the heat sink.
My only complaint is the brightness of the ZED LED's. A bit annoying in hatchback or SUV if you don't mount them somewhere that'll block out some of the light when you're driving at night.

This Minotaur is one feast for the eyes in itself. Having a plexi cover makes those internals kinda jump out at you which, in this day and age, just adds to the significance of the history behind Zed as not only a brand, but as a design altogether. The connections are all well-thought out and robust, the equalizer on the preamp section allows for dang near infinite control of the sound signature, and overall build quality is top notch as evidenced by the heft of its heatsink and solder quality on the board.
Tonally, this amp is very dynamic and clear. I get no sense of the Minotaur coloring the sound. Whether it's providing power at 8, 4 or 2 ohms, this amp has outperformed by Class A/B Boston Acoustics GT hand over fist.
If your goal is a small, efficient, great-sounding and easy-to-work-with Class D, your search should end here with the Minotaur. Buy without hesitation.

I have 2 of these at 4 ohms and destroy all of those overrated china garbage " 1 ohm stable" amps. These put out real power.
