IMO, it’s going to face some stiff headwinds in that $1000 dollar price range. Looking forward to reviews by some of the usual suspects.

Yeah, it’s pricier than the Liquid Plat stack. Still curious about it tho.

There are just about NO reviews around for it.

I’ll be honest I get a bit confused between Cavalli Audio and Mono products that use Cavalli’s name. The original LAU was supposed to be a legendary $6k SS amp ( I never heard it)… Then Mono gets ahold of some products and slaps his name on it. I heard the Liquid Platinum and it was a slightly better Lyr but nothing that special.

I have no idea what to think about the Liquid Gold is it a rebadged LAU that you get get for pennies on the original MSRP dollar. Or is this just a find amp that they slapped a great badge on to move some units?

The monoprice products are designed by Cavali and last I saw him post he has complete control over what components can be used in the liquid Gold.
Obviously the monoprice products are built to a price, which means they get SIMD components and use a switching mode brick, but they are Cavali products.
Cavali posts occasionally on head-if and SBAF, the liquid gold X is a less powerful version of the Liquid gold topology, without a discrete PSU and with what most would consider lower quality components.
