Default Ref160 stereo?

Hmmm

Livio Cucuzza posted a video of it on Facebook, not sure if I can share here. He didn't confirm what it is, but it's pretty clear. Pun intended!

Wanted more info? Audio research put out a beautiful spin on their classic monoblock amp with a clear front panel, and a hologram-like gauge.
It's rumored that they were going to carry this style into more products. The video is evidence that further adds speculation that the style will come to fruition.
I love the look, some don't, and I don't know if it's anything more than a cosmetic upgrade. The only ARC dealer in my area can't afford to carry an entire line, so I'll never hear it unless I buy it first.

Sorry I'm not well informed, I just like the topic and didn't want you ignored here. We don't have answers, yet.

I have the REF75SE in the store using KT150s

And IMHO the Foundation VT80SE sounds better despite being a “lower range” model.

The VT80SE shares a lot of the improvements on the REF160Ms including the new auto bias which Audio Research claimed they only implemented in the new series after they found it improved the sound.

Wow. That was the complete opposite to my experience. The VT80se didn’t even come close to the Ref75Se.
