The revolution has begun!

Digital amps along with digital xovers are the future.....and you can have it NOW. I am not going to say that a $1400 Peachtree GaN1 amp will sound better than a $120K MSB Select, $145K Boulder Preamp and Bouder $250K mono blocks with $20K worth of cables in between (over half a million plus power cords and amp stands)......but it did beat the Holo May KTE with the Holo Serene Pre and Kinki B7 mono blocks with $1000 worth of interconnects ($13k). So what will it take to beat this $200 digital board from Elegant Audio Solutions powered from a $100 switching power supply? With a digital amp you do not need a DAC or a preamp or regular amp with feedback, tubes, or transistors. With digital amps you can bi or triamp your speaker drivers directly without the distortion of passive components. In fact, I would bet that if you bought two GaN 1 amps, bought the $600 digital xover from minisdp (with great linear supply and great coax cables) and biamped some drivers directly that it would sound better than most $50K systems. You could get 2 12 inch woofs and mount them on an open baffle and put a beryllium tweenter on top and set the xover to 1K or less (48db per octave). You hardwire your speaker cable to the woofers voice coil wires and use Music Purifiers and Ground Enhancers on each driver.....Bybee Clarifiers on the back of the woofer magnets.......speaker wires hardwired via plastic clamps into the amps (no binding posts or spades allowed here!). Of course, you can triamp.....and manufacturers will soon have powered digital speaker so all you will need is a source.

There will be other manufacturers designing and building digital amps that will (no doubt) be better than the EAS boards.....but they will come at a price. These, yet to be made digital amps will blow the industry wide no more big heavy expensive boxes will ever need to be purchased......but what EAS has not is fantastic. When I do some mods to the Peachtree amp next month it should get a step or two better. Have fun!

I have started a webpage about all this and more and will be updating it continuously.


My humble opinion is Technics was introduce amplifiers class H in this time now Technics introduce amps classG when i see inside the class H vintage i compare to Amp Class G i encountered the same topology of circuit H plus the classG i see the only diference is the parts vintage class H is more big and ordinary vs Class G modern little parts that’s it the sound of both really diferent class H more brilliant vs class G i thinking about the prices i am not to invest for this modern class G so nor class H i keep my Class A and AB,the more vintage age more better sound.

This is definitely not new!  Tact had something very very similar starting in 1998, YEARS ago.  A pure digital amp.  The volume control was one of my very favorites.  Smooth like butter.  It makes my feet itch when people make blanket statements that one technology is better than any other.  Implementation is key for any piece of equipment and every part including the case and power supply counts.  There are many great products using many different technology types.  

First, one "non professional" reviewer saying the Gan1 beat his Holo setup is of little value to me. I want to see a real, professional review of this before considering this amp, including its response into 2-ohm loads and whether it's load dependent. Why is this last part a secret??? Second, my Technics SU-G700 has USB and accepts higher rate inputs, including DSD. Until the Gan1 has this it is simply incomplete and hardly revolutionary. Not ready for prime time!

I’ll still with my class AB that I just bought. Maybe in ten or twenty years I’ll get the itch to look for new power and speakers.

No, a digital amp does not have a DAC in is the DAC. This is not a normal Class D amp and should not be compared to it. A normal class D amp needs a DAC in front of it and has analog stages in it with feedback. This has no feedback, no opamps, no transistors, no tubes, no normal DAC...

Of course, Tact did this first.....please read my website. Does not mean that today we cannot do it better....even much better.

So it only has coax input. There are tons of streamers and ways to add all the inputs you need. The $2400 Lumin U2 Mini has LEEDH lossless digital volume control and will play all kinds of sources and even takes DSD512.

What really matters is how is sounds.....more comparisons coming soon.......and the biggest thang is that you can use pure digital everyone will be getting new speakers with no xovers in them or making their own and having sound that is better than they have ever heard. It is commonly known that active speakers are better than passive......and that is with the crappy electronics that is in the current active speakers (crossovers using normal DACs and normal amps). When you hear the zero sound of a digital xover plus digital amp and then direct to your drivers so will be sobbing in happiness.

I don’t trust professional reviews.....they are mostly ads. The person that has the Holo set up is much more trustworthy. He is not getting paid.

As I stated in my webpage we have just begun. Someone could make a version with this EAS board (or the 400 watt stereo board that has multiple inputs including usb) right now. This is just the very first product usng this board and Peachtree wanted to get it out fast. But, as I said, if you bought two of these GaN1 amps and biamped using the minidsp pure digital crossover and ran the speaker wires directly to the voice coil wires on your speakers.....oh my GOD. You can do this right NOW.
