NuForce STA-120
High Performance Audio Power Amplifier

& Specifications
In our modern world physical space has often become more expensive than material items & products, and among other commodities that fact had its impact on the world of home stereo systems as well. As an example, the popularity of headphones is not only a byproduct of the amount of music that you can conveniently store on a smart phone, it’s also related to the difficulty of having space to locate a decent pair of loudspeakers in the home. As a result people are listening on smaller home systems too, such as Bluetooth speakers, sound-bars, etc. So what is the music lover who wants great sound to do? Locating smaller, high-quality audio components is one solution, and companies like NuForce appear to understand this. Its small and minimally styled range of electronics are all housed in diminutive enclosures that are literally half the size of most other high-end components.

The STA-120 is a good case in point: It’s an 85 watt per channel stereo power amplifier that stands only 50mm / 2-inches high on little rubber feet, and sounds a lot bigger than it looks. Its width of 215mm / 8.5-inches is exactly half the size of standard separates, which gives you a better idea of how it might look on the shelf. Normally you can't build a conventional 85 watt power amplifier into a box this small because the power supply would be too big. Not so with the STA-120 though, because NuForce has always employed highly efficient switching technology in all its products. Not only is it "Green Complaint" so it’s better for the environment, but it also makes for smaller and literally cooler-running electronics. Although it does employ a linear toroidal mains transformer that delivers a more noise-free background palette for your music, but its output stage is a true 400kHz PWM switching type that makes possible the best and and most energy efficient performance to be housed in the smallest amount of space.
