    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.

    Copper button in center front is power up from standby.

    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.
