GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@kuribo We get it. There is no need to keep repeating yourself.   
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
I bought the Benchmark AHB2 amplifier. Don't know yet when I will receive it. My thinking is there is a return period; it is well regarded so if I decide to sell after the return period I should have no trouble; I had their LA-4 pre for a while an... 
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@atmasphere  I see and understand your point. As a designer/manufacturer you have to be involved with measurement. And the quality of your work speaks for itself. Tweak1's point is also a good one. As a consumer with little to no background in e...

@tweak1 Well said.

@kuribo I would be more inclined to pay attention to what you have to say if you were not so negative and condescending. You might actually have a useful contribution, but I'm having a lot of trouble getting past your attitude.     
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@music_is_life I do. That is why I started this thread. I can't afford to buy all the amps I'm interested in to make a comparison. @kuribo Debate? Who the hell wants a debate? I can look at the specs of the various amps and compare that for mysel...

@pwayland Please explain. What was your experience with these devices that merits such comments?  
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@twoleftears Ha! I have Rowlands. Well, sold one 535, still have the other. Had a Model 2 for years. And a Synergy pre. Jeff has pulled all his D's off the market. I don't know if he is rethinking his involvement with class D or getting ready to d... 
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@ron1264 Yes, I gave them a fair chance. And that was with a pair of Spatial X5, 97db with a self-powered woofer. Like I said the next step up in the AGD line supposedly solves that problem, but the price, if I recall, was double the cost of the A...

@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 so...

@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.

@twoleftears You recommended the Orchard Audio Ultra Stereo. It looks interesting to me, but I am curious why you specifically recommended that one over the other GaN offerings discussed (Voyager, Peachtree, Atma-Sphere)?

@mrdecibel ???  I know who he is, but do you have the right thread?

@whitefishpoint1175 The pre section in the Pharaoh is probably the same or similar to the RP-7 pre. Here is a link I found to be useful in exploring replacement tubes. The stock JJ’s are not the best for me in my system. https://forums.stevehof... 
Thinking Hybrid Integrated.
I can't say enough good things about Rogue, their products, and their customer service. I had a problem with the first RP-7 that might or might not have been caused by a faulty subwoofer feeding DC back into the preamp. They replaced the pre - no ...
