I planned to buy Ref 20, but some circumstances were against me this year.

For the moment I have great space for manoeuvring:
1) I may add 2 pcs of STA-9;
2) I may start to jump to Ref 20 (2 or even 4 pcs).

But for the moment I gonna wait.

Either set-up would be excellent, I'm sure. Look forward to seeing how you go.

Cheers,

I might jump in here and mention, that I am currently using a Pair of STA-9 bridged to Mono, in evaluating the new EVOKE Ruby speakers and the combination is WOW!  :o :o

I might add that my "favorite" NuPRIME amp that I have had in my system is the "bridged" K-38, but if it sounds better in this current set up, I will be thrilled.

I also have to try the ST-10, and I have a pair of "still in the box" STA-6, which I plan to also review bridged to 190wpc.

But, my point in commenting, is the absolute incredible SONICS coming from these STA-9 pair with this particular speaker.

In the pecking order of NuPRIME amps, they "should" in most systems be above the STA-6, but slightly below the ST-10, and K-38.

Now this "pecking order" is based basically on price, because as most know, these amps all have slightly different components and stages that offer some sonic qualities that might be preferred.

It is hard to believe the quality of sound now available for these pricing levels.

I thought about STA-6, but there is no XLR inputs.
