I bought the STR to replace my long in the tooth original Nakamichi PA-7. I'm using a Krell KSP 7B pre-amp and Cocktail Audio source player. I tried a Nakamichi CA-5 pre amp but found the STR/Krell relationship sounds much better with big time low end control & impact with the STR. Speakers are Klipsch RF-7III's in walnut & my music is mainly classic/hard rock & grunge.
Pros: Sound Quality, Looks, Weight, Size, Made in Canada, works great with Krell.
