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!


I just received my Voyager yesterday.  So far it sounds better than my Emotiva BasX but you would expect so since they are very different price points.  I have not used the Peachtree so unfortunately I cannot give you a comparison.  

@ddonicht please keep us posted on your further impressions on the Voyager and tell us more about your system.

Enjoy the new amp

Benchmark is not expecting to ship my amp until May 30. They say they are backup with orders. 

@markmuse The LA4 + AHB2 is an awesome combo but I think an acquired taste. A warmer preamp (like my CODA 07x) and the AHB2 is likely a great choice for most.

If you decide to sell a BLACK AHB2 in the future let me know, I need to eventually go back to mono blocks.


Well, I followed up a lead from another post and, well... I canceled the Benchmark order and ordered a pair of Van Alstine DVA M225 monos. I sure hope this is my last pair of amps (and not because of a shortened lifespan)! 

By the way I still have a Jeff Rowland 535 and a pair of Bel Canto 600M monos to sell. Ahem, yes, and a pair of KEF Reference 1's, almost brand new.
