There is a very informative thread on Audiogon giving all the ins and out of Zu speakers. It's now at 4 pages long. See here. What I'm getting out of it is that the Druids are super sensitive to the amp pairing and it takes careful matching for the speakers to sound their best. They recommend low watt tube amps, like the Audion Black Shadow or Melody 845.
I have just recently got the Druid V's over here in England, they are still running in, but are showing slivers of their wonders during their running in. So far they do everything that my Druid IV's did but with so much more tone density, texture, detail and the bottom end is much more controlled and tuneful.
Looking at your pictures it looks like the gap from the plinth to the floor is too high, the gap needs to be between 3 and 10mm to load the cabinet for the bass.
Zu Audio have certainly done their R&D on this speaker.
Can't wait until they are completely run in :)
