GREAT NEWS! The Coda Technology new #16 amplifier will arrive this week
@yyzsantabarbara I think my ears are similar to yours. I like the sound of Class A across the frequency spectrum. Frankly, the modded LSA Voyager is more extended and crystal clear on the top end than my modded Pass Labs X150.5 and X250.5. However...

@lancelock are u really going to sell your Coda 16?  Damn.  Hit me up if u are looking for a buyer. @gladmo I actually have the SPL Elector preamp in one of my four two channel systems.  Never heard the amp but man the preamp is one helluva clean...

@yyzsantabarbara I did not realize that u could run two preamps.  Thanks for thr info.

@yyzsantabarbara I am going to go with the 16 and skip the 8.  Will sell the modded Voyager GAN and call it a day.

@lancelock maybe my fixation on the Coda #16's size and weight was perhaps looking for a reason to move on to the #8.  However, my wife grudgingly gave me the green light to spring for the Coda #16.  So, 110# be damned, I will be getting the 16.

@johngp I did not realize until I looked up the weight on my PassLabs X250.5 that it is virtually the same weight as the Coda 16. So, I can grudgingly manage the weight and size. I have been torn between the 8 and 16. My audiophile disease is so b...

@lancelock how do u park the Coda 16 ? Move it around? It seems like it is a monster size/weight wise. Well, the question is moot cause the X250.5 weighs 110#.  I should be able to handle it.  Now, the price tag....

I am debating the 8 vs the 16.  I am curious how my fellow audiophiles park an amp as big and heavy as the 16.  Just get a couple of young strong kids to lift it and set in a spot not to be disturbed?  Set it on a stand with wheels that lock?  I h...

@twoleftears I actually heard that combo and later talked to Clayton who was there.  Actually, I did not like the sound of that combination.

@tvad thanks for the amp recommendations. I will check those amps out.  Do u have Spatial X5 speakers?

@yyzsantabarbara I really like the Voyager GAN but after switching in the Ampzilla monoblocks, i realized its leaner tonality.  It is obviously not a wpc issue cause the Ampzilla is only 200 wpc.  I plan on keeping it, at least for now.

I am in the market for a new amp for my reference system. I had LSA Voyager GAN 350 wpc class D amp in there for a good while. Lovely amp with crystalline extended highs and a beautiful midrange. However, to my ears, the midbass presence and meat ... 
Canary Audio Preamps Any Good?
Canary makes fine sounding tube preamps. I own their 4 box monoblock preamp.  
Which would you choose for good sounding tube preamp for an audiophile new to tubes.
I love tube preamps.  I have in play now both tube and solid state.   Audio GD, Don Sachs and Supratek all make fine sounding tube preamps.  The Black Ice hybrid preamp is really good - especially if u replace the stock TungSol tube with a Linlai ...
