Wyred 4 Sound ST-500 power amp, runs cool, draws little power, and sounds warm, rich, and powerful, with 250 watts per channel at 8 ohms.
Electronically in excellent condition. Cosmetically it looks near mint, as the photos show. There is a slight roughness, about a quarter-inch long, on the side edge of the left “ear” of the faceplate – this is easier to feel than to see, and hard to see except up very close.
Please see the online review at positive-feedback dot com for an excellent description of this amp’s performance. A few highlights from that review:
“The ST 500 has an excellent bass character. It's very highly damped and very controlled. Many a listener will hear less boom and less distortion from their speakers but more tune, tone, and articulation in the bass. …Of course, the ST 500 has a beautiful midrange. Detailed and smooth. …With these amplifiers the instruments are as physically in-the-room as I've ever heard from a solid-state amplifier, and more so than a lot inexpensive tube ones, too. …The soundstage is wide and deep, when the music calls for it, too. Through the treble, in anything other than a direct-comparison with something else, it sounds extended, musically detailed and solid. …For a lot of listeners with a lot of speakers, the ST 500 will sound musically relaxed and sophisticatedly smooth. It'll sound more natural; more like real music.”
