    Interesting new amp

    This looks like an interesting new alternative for somewhat difficult to drive speakers from some of Nelson's former group at Threshold.

    Re: Interesting new amp

    Yea, I thought this looks like a pretty cool amp. The only thing that I noticed is it appears that there is only a power switch on the back, unless that yellow button in the middle top is power ... otherwise similar to the First Watt in having to reach behind....

    Nice looking amp. I prefer the white face meters to the blue. But that’s just personal preference. From the pictures the build quality looks first rate.

    Nice unit. It's a shame the Integrated does not have the same cool look and meters.

    Re: Interesting new amp

    The reviewer sure liked the amp and bought it. He's right about one thing, resale is tough. Reviews like this is bound to help with that I would think.

    When I got my CSX it was a bit more on the warm side and not as fast as the one in the review sounds. I tried to sell without success or giving it away, so I decided to keep it. I rotate it and the Levinson occasionally.

    I preferred this look more than meter amp. Maybe just me

    Re: Interesting new amp

    The reviewer should have made a comparison with the Sanders Magtech - the CODA amp appears to be a "rebirthed" version of the Magtech - check photos of the innards of both.
