Some seem to have missed the point of the thread. The OP is the Nuprime CEO. He is asking what future products we would like to see from Nuprime. He doesn't want or need us to post links to competitors. This thread is in the Nuprime circle.

Think about it.  :duh:

A 250 wpc amp at 8 ohms that doubles at 4 ohms, is 2 ohm capable and leans just a bit on the warmer side, with detail, air and transparency and does not weigh 100lbs like my current amp.  High current. True balanced with XLR and single ended inputs. It must not accentuate sibilants and it must play well with tube preamps.  Oh yeah, it must be affordable.  Is that asking for too much :)

In this line an IDA-8 with the power source of the KCH-38?  That way we could see the doubling  of wattage at 4 and 2 ohms, in a small portable box.

The current MCH-K38 amp modules can do that already. STA-9 with adjustment will also meet this requirement, or you might like it the way it is.
We are aiming to advance the state of the art much further beyond this.

I would like to see an integrated amp that has a feature where you can by pass the preamp section and use another preamp in addition to a preamp out.  It should also be modular and have a built in DAC that can be upgraded as DAC technology improves.

I think there are processors that use cards you swap in and out as tech evolves, the problem is the cards are almost as expensive as just buying a new pre-amp.

Wow, a lot of wishes. This is great.  As someone has nicely pointed out, this is a Nuprime circle and topic is asking for future product wish list.
Please avoid promoting other brand's products here. Thanks.

While I appreciate the spirit of this thread and your post I think you are ruining your objective. You should welcome input about your competition, it reveals a lot that you may not be aware of. Plus it saves you a lot of time and expense doing market research. Here is a link FYI-

The new card should be affordable.  And there is no reason for it not to be.

Schitt and Aqua both have had the ability to swap DAC boards for a while and doesn't cost more than a new unit or close.

Realise that Mr Lim is interested in a wish list for amp specs, but just wanted to put in a couple of suggestions on amps for HT use. I'd love to see a version of the STA-9 with trigger inputs just like the STA-6, for use in a home theatre system. Also, if there's a way to retrofit the sta-9 , sta-6 chassis (and upcoming RPi chassis) with rackmount ears / fittings to fit in a home theatre rack cabinet or pro audio rack case, it'll be great too!

Looking forward to news on the Omnia and the RPi chassis - it's great to see a company such as Nuprime leading the way with truly exciting audio developments!
