Further information: Purchased from DeepHz Audio end of 2014 this amp has been faultless and IMO has been a great partner with LS50s, and in particular the Dynaudio X12s, and PMC Twenty5 22’s it has powered. What I have appreciated most is the honest musical reproduction it’s provided across the various genres I listen to, dead quiet noise floor, and build (incl. XLR input). If it had a built in phono stage I’d keep it. Here are the specs – there is a V2 now with more current ICE modules so have had to refer to a review. http://v2.stereotimes.com/post/wyred-4-sound-sti500-integrated-amplifier Comes with original remote, manual, power cable and packaging. NOTE: The amp is in perfect working order – cosmetically excellent with the exception of some minor tarnishing of a few screws and potentially a trivial mark on the front right which I’ve never noticed until looking at the pictures to post FS – see pictures. The remote has been kept in a zip lock and never used but is a sticky that seems to happen sometimes. Check out the Kimber Kable 8VS (3 m pair) I've listed for sale if interested.
So I'm hopefully taking possession in a short little while, courtesy of one of the friendly folk on here, a second hand W4S ST-500 power amp that I intend to use to drive an also recently acquired pair of vintage Celestion SL6 speakers - which are quite tight and need a v.solid power source to drive. I've currently hooked these up via my Denon X3000 Zone 2 amp which also allows the Denon to run as my DAC and pre-amp / amp for any of the inputs. I also have an Audiolabs MDAC that is used specifically for a set of Beolab 3s and is fantastic. With the arrival of the ST-500 power amp, my signal path will change and am wondering whether I still use the Denon as the pre-amp using the Zone 2 pre-outs or go the dedicated pre-amp path and run a second out from the MDAC to the new pre-amp to feed Sonos. I am toying with the idea that I can switch a few settings on the Denon and potentially run the speakers as a another set of surrounds for Movie watching etc whilst retaining the flexibility but just wondering if I'm going to be tarnishing the music aspect. Not after audio-phile outcomes and a turntable may soon be on the cards to listen to via the Celestions. Keen for thoughts if you have the time to share them.
Item: W4S STP-SE Pre-Amplifier with HT Bypass (Black) Location: Sydney Price: $1100 Item Condition: Used - Excellent Condition see Photos Reason for selling: Upgrade/ NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (as a friend or +fees), COD Only Extra Info: Purchased this Pre from @scumbag. Has been an excellent addition to my system and was a real keeper - however I have simplified my setup and moved away from separates. Lots of great reviews of this unit online and on the forums. Instead of trying to explain the magic myself, refer to the following from previous listing I purchased from: The unit will come with power lead, remote, manual and double boxed. I also bought a 2nd remote from Deep HZ (brand new & not used). The surface of the original remote had become slightly sticky but completely functional. Both remotes included. Able to ship interstate at buyers expense and risk; rest assured it will be well packed.
