Here's pictures of my new Nuprime STA-9, got it today. Brand new from a dealer here in Sweden. As you can see I already have the excellent DAC-9. Early listening impressions are very promising. You also see one of my speakers - the mighty Mark&Daniel Maximus Monitor.

Hello. Does anyone use a tube preamp or a tube buffer with this amp? The reason I ask is because the amp is designed to sound like tubes.

Thx

And keep in mind that in mono mode the tuby coloration is more then in stereo mode.

Keep in mind that the association of the 9 Series Components being somewhat "tube-like" is due to the care taken to provide pleasing "even-order harmonics" to the sound output.

That said, tubes are also associated with less than detailed high frequencies, and less than strong/dynamic bass.

Those characteristics are not mimicked in the 9 series.
