The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
@johnah5 thank again for your comments. I am strongly considering and spoke to a dealer.  If it's somewhat close to SET sounding, I want to try the S5.5 from my XA30.8s.

@brownsfan @charles1dad Great to see happy owners of the Coincident Line Stage (not to derail this thread). I was actually considering it strongly last year. I totally get the minimalist design but I needed a remote with my preamp. That was the...
