AUDIO RESEARCH ANNOUNCES: REF160S STEREO POWER AMPLIFIER
May 9th, 2019
Audio Research is pleased to announce the launch of the Reference 160S stereo power amplifier. The new product distills the astonishing resolution, dynamic impact, musical purity and finesse of the 160M into one beautiful and attainable chassis designed for the music lover in all of us.

Following the example of the internationally-acclaimed 160M monaural power amplifier introduced in 2018, the Reference 160S (REF160S) is a vacuum-tube design with dual transparent power meters that float in front of the eight KT150 output power tubes.

The 160S continues the feature set introduced in the 160M, including a proprietary auto-bias circuit, switchable Triode or Ultralinear modes of operation, balanced and single-ended inputs, and an output tube monitoring mode. Additionally, the 160S offers a four-layer circuit board, allowing music to emanate from a jet-black background.

PRODUCT WILL START SHIPPING Q3 2019

Product Details:

Weight: 100 Lb
Depth: 21.5”
Power Rating: 140 WP
2 Rear Handles (for increased mobility)

I suspect there's some confusion. They released the 160m Mono Blocks late last year. This is the Stereo 160s. They're almost identical.

The thread in Buck’s link is about the stereo, not the mono. An article was posted about it yesterday.
