We are now shipping the Wyred 4 Sound STi-1000, 570 watts per channel, remote controlled, fully balanced, integrated amplifier. It does 1140 watts into 4 ohm loads.
The first review is out and it is a rave.
They sum 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."

This integrated amp is a real game changer.
The STi-1000 uses the highly reviewed $2000.00 ST-1000 balanced stereo power amplifier with an integrated version of the $2000.00 STP balanced preamplifier on a single chassis.
The Preamp just received a state of the art review in 6moons.com who gave it a Blue Moon award. They compared to to their $10,000.00 reference Esoteric preamp. The amp puts out 570 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 1140 watts into 4 ohm loads. It is fully stable into 2 ohms loads. Sonics are amazingly tube-like as they reported on in the review.
In the 10 Audio ST-1000 review they said:
"A paradigm shift is upon us now. In the Wyred 4 Sound ST-1000 stereo amplifier, we have a maturing technology that absolutely changes the performance-to-price expectation for solid-state amplifiers in the $2,000 to $10,000 price range."

Couple this amp with a superb passive/active preamplifier in one box and you have the STi-1000 integrated amp. All at only $2495.00, a savings of $1500.00 over the amp and preamp that are $4000.00.
The 6moons Blue Moon award was for:
"A full featured Reference preamp with a passive's Transparency, active dynamics and tube colors for a highly competitive price made in America"

This remote controlled integrated has remote phase switch as well as balanced control. It also has a home theater multi-channel pass thru. There are 4 sets of RCA inputs and one set of balanced inputs. There is 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, USA build quality and a 3-year factory warranty.

"Compare this integrated amp to any competitive product under $6000.00 and you will be amazed."
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 preamplifier. 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.
