GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?

Peachtree 400 and LSA Voyager GaN amps: Does anyone have direct experience with both of these amps? Can you comment on any differences that might exist in sound? I know the internals are supposed to be the same but even if that is true implementation can make a difference. Both are highly regarded by those who own them.

Might also be helpful if you listed the rest of your system (Pre and speakers).

My current system is: Bricasti M3 DAC; Rogue RP-7 (NOS) pre; Bel Canto Ref600M amps; Fyne F1-8 speakers.

Thanks in advance!


@ricevs Thanks Rick. I was wondering when you would chime in. I was wondering about Purifi too. Tell me more. What are you doing with it? What has NAD done with it? (Oh, aghast! NAD in a high end system?) Tell me more, I am genuinely interested.


@evelyn1 Stop it. Get back in your cage.

@twoleftears Playing devil's advocate here: Is a home grown GaN module necessarily better than off the shelf stuff? I had a pair of AGD Audions a year or so ago and returned them. I think my comment was something like 'detailed and squeaky clean but anemic, thin, and over priced for 85 watts.' I understand that moving up to the next AGD level adds more grunt, but the cost is outrageous.  

@markmuse I think you are the first person I ever heard describe an AGD amp as "Thin". Did you give them time to settle in? Did you use a good power cord? I can't speak for the Audion, but my GV's are far from thin. Also, the tube is not fake, it is the actual output stage, pull it out and guess what, no sound. Over priced is relative, people spend 20K on 5w set amp, so price is highly subjective IMO.


Most info is on website.  More info can be gotten by calling me directly.  check out website for phone #

The AGD tube is not a real is a solid state circuit in a tube bottle. A tube is a type of amplifier.....AGD did this just for make it look cool (it does allow different circuits to be changed down the line....but of course, that could also be done internally). That is why the same circuit is in their new baby stereo amp.....and no fake tubes.
