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!


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. 

Wolter has sale on the Voyager and ships next day after payment. Perhaps it may be worth of risk if he lets you it for 2k. It's upon you.

@niodari I like what I’ve been reading about the M225 monos, so I’m going to see this one through. I will report back. Might be a couple of weeks before they ship.
