Product Description

The ST series amplifiers offer a huge range of flexibility. With balanced
outputs ranging from 125 watts to 500 watts, you can be assured that these
amplifiers will be hard to beat! Each channel has independent inputs for a
balanced or unbalanced connection which are easily selected by the
selector switch which allows zero input from the unwanted input. Our
proprietary input stage was designed for optimal performance. The dual,
balanced FET input stage offers excellent transparency, and seamless
integration with any source. Connection of these amps to a tube type
source is a match made in heaven!

The standard ICEpower engine you will find in our amplifiers, and other
competitors offer state-of-the-art technology and are very hard to beat.
The ICEpower technology alone, as other companies use for their entire
amplifier, is 80% of what we have accomplished. Our input stage in
conjunction with the internal modifications add the additional 20% needed
to make ours one breathtaking audiophile amplifier! Stating that the ST
series amplifiers have little to no heat, incredible imaging, unbelievably
low noise, dynamic bass, super wide sound stage and exceptionally low
distortion doesn't even come close to giving them justice.

I’m finally taking the time to put my two pennies on the board. I want to share my discovery with fellow audiophiles in cyberspace.

Not long ago, I purchased Wyred4Sound stereo amplifier (200S – 125 watts output). I have been hearing so many good things about D class amplifiers. I decided to give it a try. After a long research, Wyred4sound caught my attention not only because the company works with PS Audio, but also it is one of premier custom modifications centers in the country, if not the world.

My budget was limited at the time, so I purchased the stereo amp. When the amp finally arrived home double boxed, I could not believe how lite and small the amplifier was. The small size was very much welcome after a long time dealing with my 100 pound Krell amp. The primary reason for such small size is the amp’s state of the art ICE technology. The overall feel and quality of parts was well above the amp’s price point.

I was excited to hear what this little amp could do. I popped in a “Cowboy Junky” cd. All I can say is “! WOW!! WOW!! WOW!” I could not believe my ears on how good it sounded right out of the box.

After about 300 hours or so the amp really warmed up. I can safely say that ”the amp gives a tube like sound”, but with a lot more authority. The bass was strong and detailed. Many tube amps lack that authoritative bass. The amp has the speed and resolution of a solid state amplifier that would cost three to four times as much. I really don’t see anyone going wrong with Wyred4Sound amps.

This amp has that special something that most of audiophiles are looking for - its “musicality”.

Do yourself a favor and audition one of Wyred4Sound amps. I assure you, you will not be disappointed. From what I have been told, the more powerful mono amplifiers sound even better.
