“From the very first listen, the IDA-8 elicits a big ‘wow’. Simply that the Nuprime IDA-8 is easily the best sounding amplifier we’ve ever heard under $2000 by a wide margin.

“I finally set up my bedroom system with the IDA-8 and the KEF LS50s with the new subwoofer. With the Bluetooth dongle the sound is pretty impressive. … It is pretty amazing what that amp can do for that money-that amp is easily the equal of some 2k amps I have heard. … The LS50s really continue to amaze and really benefit from the sub in the system.”
– Jeff K, VT (a happy IDA-8 owner)
