Im not sure what to do the unit sounds amazing just those little things annoy me as I paid $5500 for both amps. Am I being too anal about it.

Have emailed w4s to see if they can send me the potetimeter replacement and screws as the screws I managed to sort out as when I sent it to the dealer he didn't put it back the same way as there are some screws which are slight smaller that's why they were not flush

Does anyone know how long it takes for w4s to reply to emails as I emailed them 2 days ago and have not got a reply.

Hi guys. Anybody try to demo 2 SX1000 MK II's vs a Parasound Halo A21.

Here's my dilema. I have two SX1000 MK II mono-blocks, and one SX500 MK II mono-block powering Paradigm Studio 100v5's and a CC690v5. My side and rear surrounds are Paradigm ADP590v5, and Studio 20v5 bring in the rear. Powering my surrounds is an Emotiva UPA-500 (80w per channel). My 3 front run off XLR. The surround are RCA, from a Marantz AV7702 (Soon to be replaced with an AV8802). I was thinking of selling off the SX500, and UPA-500 and get an A51. This way my center gets powered by the A51. I feel my CC690 is not clear/low with voices sometimes and I have to increase the volume to hear the dialogue, & makes my setup simpler. I do listen to music as much as movies. My problem is, are my SX1000 mono-blocks competitive with the Halo A21. Any thoughts? I'm really looking for any input/ ideas on my situation.

HTPC/Gaming Rig:
-Silverstone CW02B, Core i7-5820K, ASUS X99-A, 16GB
-EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ Backplate> VIZIO P702UI-B3
-Auzen HDMI XFi> 7.2 via Marantz AV8802A>Wyred4Sound + Halo A51>Paradigm 100'sV5, ADP590'sV5, 690v5, 20v5's, + Dual HSU-ULS15 Subs
-40TB of Blu ray .iso's in my Synology DS1815+ controlled by a Dune Smart D1

Just purchased a Wyred 4 Sound ST-250 amp. Should arrive tomorrow. Wanting to hear how it will compare to my Carver M-1.0t MKII opt2 power amp. I realize the Carver has significantly more power but I will be comparing each amp for its sound reproduction, imaging and sound stage, then decide which amp will stay.

The ST-250 arrived today and I had to play with it all day today. I am very impressed with the sound stage and clarity. I thought the Carver was really good but this Wyred power amp still is even better. It projects a wider, and deeper sound stage with even more clarity than the Carver. The Wyred power amp has a blacker background and produces a more full and rich overall presentation. I do not feel that I am losing anything, even thought the Carver has significantly more power than the Wyred. Looks like I will be selling the Carver power amp shortly.
