No more RMAF?
I feel the same way. That is why I never wear a seatbelt and always drink a 24 of beer before I drive. I am not letting the terrorists win.

Experience with good d/s DACs “comparable@ to R2R?

I posted earlier on the thread as I had more hours. I believe it was at 150+ where I started to here the best of the unit. 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I have heard the NS5000 a few times because they are available locally though you can get them from 2 online dealers for home demo. They actually look beautiful. I live in Southern California so I can hear any speaker or gear for the most part. Am... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
When I have some extra cash next year I will try this so I do not speak from experience. However, I think a giant killer is what I have for music streaming. I use Fibre Optic cable and a real crappy backend to serve the music. In theory what I hav... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
If my AHB2 are desired for demo, contact me on A’gon DM and I can get the amps shipped. I must say that I am not that interested in how those will fair. I think they are great amps (my personal favorite) but they will not be that well received in ...

@viber I cannot sell the KRELL because it is unmatched in sonic quality with the RAAL. Just the very best of a lot of gear I have tried on the RAAL, including using DSP with some of them. I am not using DSP with the KRELL. As I type this, I am lis... 
Marantz PM Ki Ruby and RME ADI 2 (Am I crazy?)
@jasonbourne Have you heard streaming that has a Fibre Optic cable? Preferably like the Lumin X1 or the new mega expensive Linn DAC which have Fibre Optic inputs on the DAC itself. Or what I use, the Sonore OpticaRendu with the stream coming strai...

Listening to Led Zeppelin - In Through the Out Door on both preamps. The LA4 is electric with this album the CODA 07x seems a little duller in comparison (an apples-to-apples comparison).Along with the 07x, I will be also using the LA4 in evaluati... 
LSA Voyager GAN Amplifier
While I wait for the modded LSA Voyager to get back to me I am doing some comparisons with the Benchmark LA4 preamp and CODA 07x preamp connected to the CODA #8 amp and sourced by the Gustard X26 Pro DAC via XLR.I love the LA4. The fact that it's ... 
LSA Voyager GAN Amplifier
@viber correct about remembering how each sounded a few weeks ago. However, we do have a relative gauge of which amp was preferred with the CODA 07x preamp.For me (on floorstanders) :1) CODA #8 (more powerful and engaging)2) VoyagerFor my friend (... 
Coda Class A Amplifiers
The meters actually were useful for me recently. I normally use the CODA #8 with my floorstanders. At the moderate volume levels I listen to the meters hardly move. There is a new sensitivity setting to make the meters more responsive, but it stil... 
Micromega M100 vs Coda CSib, vs Pass ? vs
@mojo I was considering the Micromega along with the KRELL and CODA. I did not want DSP on my unit (I prefer a computer) so that was a deciding factor for me to not try the Micromega. I was at first down on the amp fan (I think Micromega has one) ... 
LSA Voyager GAN Amplifier
@twoleftears I spoke with a few owners by DM, I emailed Doug Dale at CODA, and read some other posts. The bleed through issue is a known issue, maybe considered a feature and not a bug :). However, now that I have the LA4 I may send the 07x unit i...
