Hey smodtactical,Yes, I have purchased the # 16 for my reference system.  If you think the Pass Labs is well built, and it is, take a look at the parts/ boards/ caps in the Coda #8 you might be surprised. 
Aric Audio's Motherlode II line-stage keep me up all last night
Hey Laaudionote,Your Motherlode is still a great preamplifier! You should give Aric a call so he can share with you what he has discovered to improve the overall performance of the ML to the ML II. Possibly, he could upgrade yours to the present g... 
Aric Audio's Motherlode II line-stage keep me up all last night
Spent another 15 to 20 hours listening to the ML II preamplifier this weekend. My cursory take on it has just being totally reaffirmed. As quiet as any Solid State line-stage I have ever had in-house. It rivals the speed and slam of my David Berni...

Hey smodtactical,Well, everyone’s entitled to their opinion. I had the Kinki piece in for review, actually quite good for the $, and it was not as good as the Coda CSIb for my ears in my system. Also, remember OCD was at that time selling the Kink...

"How big is the gap in performance between the #16 and the #8"Enough that everyone, including me, heard it very easily. Respectfully, many of your questions were answered in my Stereo Times review, along with the posters on this thread and the #16...

Hey smodtactical,Very, very close in performance with the XA-60.8s. The #16 surpasses both its less expensive sibling and the Pass Labs amplifiers.

Sorry guys,For my typo in the title, it should be kept not keep! For some reason I could not correct it after the thread went up. But, I did share that I got very little sleep last night, so that's my excuse! 
The Audio Alto R101 : A special speaker for SET amplifiers and small acoustic spaces
Hey atmasphere and timlub,Normally, I would agree with both of you regarding having to have a higher sensitivity for a speaker to really have a SET amplifier "shine" in it’s performance. However, when I ran the experiment in a medium sized acousti... 
GREAT NEWS! The Coda Technology new #16 amplifier will arrive this week
Hey kairosman,Congrats! I'm really glad you are enjoying your #8 amplifier. It's really a wonderful piece and a very reasonable price. 
GREAT NEWS! The Coda Technology new #16 amplifier will arrive this week
Hey tonnesen,In the past I had tried the Sander's Magtech on my MG-20's. It drove them easily, but I found the overall sound somewhat dry and the imaging was not as 3D as my Pass Labs amplifiers.I believe that Coda as the OEM supplier to Sander en... 
GREAT NEWS! The Coda Technology new #16 amplifier will arrive this week
Hey smodtactical,Just read this thread and the one on the #8 and it concludes that both are superlative, but the #16 is better or read my original review at Stereo Times for the same conclusion. 
GREAT NEWS! The Coda Technology new #16 amplifier will arrive this week
Hey smodtactical,I know you are. Excellent amplifier but not in the league of Coda's new generation of amplifiers. 
GREAT NEWS! The Coda Technology new #16 amplifier will arrive this week
Hey mapman,I have 20 amp dedicated circuits and have no problems tripping the circuit breaker turning on any amplifier. I never turn off the #16 and it draws around 230 watts and runs cool for a Class A design. So, I would not call the #16 a "gree... 
GREAT NEWS! The Coda Technology new #16 amplifier will arrive this week
Hey twoleftears,No, the Magnus amplifier is the solid state division of Canary Audio. I have reviewed a couple of their pieces (DAC/amplifier) which were very good along with their superlative tube gear. However, this has nothing to do regarding t...

Hey laaudionut,Congrats! I’m sure you are enjoying your new "baby". In another thread on the #16 I tried to explain the difference between the Pass Labs XA-60.8’s and the #16. I still think the XA-60.8’s are wonderful amps, but I like the Coda #16...
