Bad choice of words.  I mean its a good feature to see what your volume is. Don't have to explain this really. ...

I agree it rocks, and, as I've commented on in a different thread, it rocks even more sweetly with the TDSS mod.

And given how good the IDA-16 is, I'm really looking forward to more details about the upcoming IDA-32.

Refinement through upgrades shifts into lots (and lots) of money, Scott, once you reach the kind of threshold that, on my view, the IDA-16 presents. The TDSS upgrade was worth it, but I had already sunk $$$ into resonance control (buying up Infinite Elemente after they went out of business along with older Stillpoints stuff, current Stillpoints are, no doubt, better but here we have the "lots and lots" of $$$$). If you haven't yet "done" systematic resonance control ("whole system" honestly makes a difference), it's worth it. But, then, yes, NuPrime has proven that it knows how to deliver what I take to be the best value available.

So, yes, I, like you, Scott, am very interested to see the approach NuPrime will take with the twice-as-expensive IDA-32. At my age I could be looking at my last integrated upgrade (he said....).

I do not like:

Peak like old class D technology



H3 predominance




It is good, I like it at 8 Ohms (red).




Low SNR

Two IDA-16 questions, are there periodic upgrades to the design or components to tweak and evolve its performance? Also, same DAC as the IDA-8?
Thanks!

Hi Gordon,  I just received the news that we have "discontinued IDA-16."

Regarding upgrading performance and features I am also told we can look forward to "The high end IDA-32 ($2500) and IDA-32SE ($4000) are scheduled for early 2021".

And no the dac chipset for the IDA-16 is the from ESS, and if I remember correctly the IDA-8 is AKM?

I'm very keen to know how the above models are voiced. Is the WA-300 (or whatever it will be designated as) to be voiced more like the IDA-8, IDA-16, or other?

It is sort of in-between. Kind of like IDA-8 for live music.
The official name is NuPrime Omnia A300. Feature wise, it is like IDA-8 with 24/192kHz WiFi streaming and BT5.0/aptX HD.
More power at 150Wx2@8Ohm, even more power at 4 ohm. Support all the popular streaming services. Also in the process of certifying for Apple Airplay 2, Alexa, MQA.
