Why can't the world just set the voltage the same....sheesh.

PS: anyway, you are selling it and are keeping your opera....
Yeap, keeping the opera. I like the extra inputs/headphone out on the corda amp and the crossfeed. It's the analog version though and it doesn't have the built-in dac like the GCHA but that's what the dac1 is for
For a single amp/dac solution, the gcha is really good especially for its price (when used, not retail).
Edit: I re-read the post above...nope i'm not selling my corda opera (..yet ;-) ). However, I'm in the market for a gs-x and when I find one, i'll probably let the opera go since I can't afford to keep 2 great (..and expensive) amps. But as far as the 'wow' factor, it has that + more. This is a step up from the DAC1 built-in amp, it has crossfeed which I use all the time, and the amp itself is stunning to look at. I encourage you to audition it if there's a fellow head-fier close to your area and hear for yourself.
