YG versus MBL versus Borrensen versus Vandersteen
My Moon 700i is an integrated and does not have the ability to place the vandy hi-pass filter in between the pre and amp. Also, my WAF with these speakers is lower because of the bass they already produce. I am certain the Sub 3 would clean up the...

My amp is a Moon 700i with AntiCables. I did not say I was replacing the Treo CTs. Just educating myself on the brands, my first audio show. Each of the speakers was very clean and transparent. I guess what I am asking is what has been your expe...

GaN amps: Peachtree or LSA Voyager?
As an owner of a GAN amp I will say that everyone has different experiences and the sound we look for can be different. Here is another review on a GAN amp.   The new Ro... 
peachtree gan 400 is very good
I own the Peachtree preDAC and GaN400 and am very happy with the sound. Previously, I owned the Nova 300 and got the preDAC and the amp500 to replace it when teh preDAC came out. Traded in the amp500 for the GaN400. Every amp was better than the...
