The Wyred 4 Sound STi-500, 250 watts per channel, remote controlled, balanced integrated amplifier has received some superb reviews. Reviewers are buying the review sample amps personally.
In the Stereotimes review Frank Alles sums up with:
"As for me, I know a great deal when I hear one. I'm buying this STI-500 and it will be staying put in my reference system for the foreseeable future. It has been my pleasure to see and evaluate this well-built USA-made product that not only competes with but actually outperforms both imported and domestic products in and above its price range. Happy Listening!"

The STi-500 uses the highly reviewed $1500.00 ST-500 balanced stereo power amplifier with a slightly scaled down version of the $1800.00 STP balanced preamplifier on a single chassis.
The Positive Feedback review summed up with:
The STI-500 is very green, extremely good sounding, built to last, and very convenient. I have failed to acknowledge how much I like the preamplifier section for its flexibility and convenience since it just does its job without drawing attention to itself. In truth this amplifier doesn't draw any attention to itself with anything other than its exceptional sound. If Class D amps like the STI-500 are the future, then the future is going to be wonderful.

The first review is on the STi-1000 was also a rave. The STI-500 basically sounds the same as the STi-1000 with 1/2 the power, 250 watts.
The 1000 review sums up with:
"They are offering near state-of-the-art technology and performance at mid-level prices. By any realistic definition, the STi 1000 is a bargain. The preamp will appeal to those looking for the straight wire with gain approach. It will not create warmth but convey it. The line stage alone would probably warrant the price of admission. The amplifier has virtually unlimited power and a high pedigree."

The STi500 amp puts out 250 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 500 watts into 4 ohm loads. It is fully stable into 2 ohm loads.
In the Positive Feedback review they summed up with:
"Because if it's good music that is the goal here and you're looking for a high-powered solid-state amplifier, the Wyred 4 Sound ST 500 comes too damned close to the best out there at a price way too reasonable to be ignored."

Couple the ST-500 amp with a superb preamplifier in one box and you have the STi-500 integrated amp. All at only $1995.00, a savings of $1500.00 over the separate amp and preamp that are $3500.00.

The remote controlled STi-500 integrated has remote phase switch as well as balance control. It also has a home theater multi-channel pass thru and loop thru capacity for an external processor. There are 4 sets of RCA inputs and one set of balanced inputs. There is also a set of RCA outputs to run a subwoofer. It also offers RCA to balanced conversion when RCA inputs are used.
All this with California build quality with a 5-year factory warranty.

Sonics rival those of separate components. The integrated amps offer 90% of the sonics of the Wyred separates at only 66% of the cost.
Bass is extended and tight. Transparency is superb and dynamics are clearly the leader in this price range. There is no brightness in the midrange which is exceptionally neutral. High frequencies are extremely smooth due to the unique all discrete input buffer stage used in the amplifier as well as the . This integrated is designed to compete with separates selling for 3-4 times its cost. The amp alone has been reviewed as doing that by itself.
