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!


Frank attributes the virtual elimination of all the residual harmonic distortion to a differential balanced design.  Can someone with the technical expertise explain why that kind of design would bring about that result?


I went back a reread the absolute sound review...and Frank gives a lot of credit to both the differential balanced design and the Exicon power mosfet output hopefully Ralph can shed some light on why this might be some kind of secret sauce??

I bought the used LSA Voyager that was advertised in US Audiomart. It has not been modded. Should be here Saturday. This will be interesting. Stay tuned.


LSA doesn't talk much in their literature about lowering distortion instead mainly focusing on the advantages of GaN.  San Francisco Audio Society liked the amp, Audio Science Review did not.  It will be interesting to read your impressions.
