Call Wally and see if he has shipped any amps. The website says late Feb. as shipping date. Of course, he may not make this date. The original shipping date was Nov....then Dec.....then Jan....now late Feb.

Yesterday, on the "Truth about Modern Class D" thread you stated:
"Apparently, the GaN Voyager is still going through its development issues."
So, I assume they did not ship you an amp this last week and that it might be yet delayed again? Are you going to get one in a couple of weeks, months? What is Wally saying now?
Incase you didn’t see it, here is the pre release done by Mono & Stereo High End mag.
And this one, it takes a while to load, be patient
Emailed Walter and he said the first 6 (baby batch) were being shipped this week and the next serious batch will be shipped at the end of April. He said the board has gone through 3 revisions with each one sounding better. He did not want to release it until he felt it was great. I know what he means......took me many months and many mods to get my modded IceEdges right. So we might hear something from one of these first 6 owners.....or we will have to wait until May for some real feedback.
The Class D Audio amp (also GaN based.....:Premium-audio.com) should be out in a month or so (he is waiting for boards and chassis).
So, within a couple of months we should have some feedback on these two moderately priced ($1600-$2500) GaN amps..
Somehow I did not get notification of recent posts

How many months did I wait for you to deliver my 1200, when ’all’ you did was modify existing modules? Bugging you did no good, and only further frustrated me! Rant aside, I still love my EVS 1200.
Whereas, LAS did a ground up build (boards from CAD drawings, etc, etc), and while the GaN chips are very inexpensive, getting them to meet expectations takes a fair amount trial and error with high quality parts), even in the hands of an accomplished builder
When it shows up, I will update various threads and start a new one
How many months? You figure it out. You paid me July 2 and it was shipped August 21 (same year). You get frustrated very easily, it seems. Relax, try being more patient...every moment is perfect....breath, enjoy and love it.
Whereas you mentioned you were getting a GaN amp in last Sept. (later revealed as the Voyager) and still there are no amps (6 months later). I have no problem with things taking time. However, the Voyager (in print on their page) was scheduled for release in Nov., then Dec., then Jan, then early Feb, then late Feb.....now it looks like they will actually happen in late April. No biggie really, its just that some of us got all excited to see how this latest inexpensive buzzword amp sounded versus a known amp (my modded IceEdge, etc.). We shall know soon enough. I do hope it is great and beats my modded IceEdge. I always want us to expand and grow with each breath. We are infinite....there are no boundaries, except the ones we make up.
