rustydog,
 I've been looking at the IDA-16, but you've mentioned the IDA-32 in passing and I wonder if this is a new model?'
Any specs yet?

IDA-32 is a completely different "beast", expected retail price about $4000, planned for Q1 2018.

It has been updated. Note that STA-6's position on the warmth and texture.
It shares the same design as STA-9, but tuned toward neutral with slightly more details.
It is very simple to choose between these two: if you listen to classical and jazz music, pick STA-6. If you have a mix of all types of music and want to maximise the effect of explosion in a movie, go with STA-9.
Hi Jason,

Aparently, the sta-6 position on the chart did not survive the migration to the new site.  The chart showing on the new comparison chart is, once more, lacking the STA-6.  Also, it would be nice to see the IDA-6 as well there?

Thanks,
Rafa.

Jason,

As long as you're adding amps to the chart, how about slipping the upcoming IDA-32 in?  :thumb: :D

We still don't know how IDA-32 is going to sound like.

Any comment on the sound of the STA-6 in bridged mono at 160W? It's the one amp combination/configuration that I haven't seen any commentary on. The STA-9 in mono mode is supposed to be excellent, and I'm wondering if the STA-6 benefits similarly.

Jason,

I'll be in Taiwan beginning 11/13/17 until 01/25/18 and again from approx. 02/25/18 till 04/25/18. I'll happily volunteer to be a guinea pig for any listening trials. Shucks, I could even take one home to Taoyuan to play in my system.  :thumb:  8) :D

I'm interested too about it.
There is a dynamic increase?

I think Jason mentioned the the STA-6 is of a similar sound, to the STA-9.

That said, I have heard and used the STA-6 and found it exceptional for such an inexpensive amp.

Down side, is that it does not have XLR inputs if you require them.

Keep in mind bridged use of the NuPRIME Amps IMPROVE the sound and specs, opposite of conventional amps.
