GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@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...

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 ...

@whitefishpoint1175 Did you resolve this? Where did you end up?  
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@whitefishpoint1175 Yes, currently using Mazdas in the front positions with RCA 5814A following.

@yyzsantabarbara Thanks for that update. What speakers? What efficiency? Please let me know how that combo works for you with speakers.  My thinking is to approach it from the other direction: Pre with NOS tubes and a GaN based amp (though I coul...

GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
Thanks to everyone. @jjss49 Like your picture and the music it represents. Other than environmental issues I'm not sure why I'm wedded to class D. I guess America loves the underdog. Currently using Bel Canto Ref600 monos which are class D but no... 
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@jackd Last year I bought a pair of AGD Audions, but returned them. Squeaky clean and detailed but thin and grossly over priced for 85 watt monos. And that fake tube thing... well, the idea of being able to upgrade is interesting.  @rajugsw Thank... 
GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
@mitch2  I had a pair on loan to listen to, courtesy of a dealer in NJ. They were very nice: detailed and smooth. Interesting in that they each have a large transformer, unusual for any class D that I have encountered. I could end up buying them, ... 
Looking for a new (preowned OK) line stage under $5K: suggestions?
Zavfino Prima MKII OCC Speaker Cable would probably be a good match for the Pulsars. They seem to be rich in the lower and mid frequencies. In my system it is a little too much (Fyne F 1-8 speakers).  I second the Rogue RP-7 preamp with NOS tubes...

Interesting... removed posts, and no reply to this one? Weird.   
Streaming network issues - need a geek
@jgoldrick and @mike_in_nc If I do set the modem (Arris NVG443B - supplied by service provider) to passthrough will I still be able to connect my desktop and printer in the studio via ethernet to the modem (the router is in a different location in... 
Streaming network issues - need a geek
Thanks for additional replies! @jgoldrick It does handle 4k, but just barely, and only when connected ethernet direct to the modem. I am using the modem router, and currently also using its WiFi. The modem is in my studio. I have my desktop and m...
