Don't know about the Ruby but have just acquired some Wyetech 211 C monoblocks, which replaced my Premier 11a. No comparison. Agree totally with build quality, liquidity, sound, they are awesome.

they are brand brand new . my friend bought 1st off line pair , boards and parts all in stock , but they will go for about $26k to 33k, approx 5o watts a side, they are so revealling its scary , never ever heard an amp with such clarity and detail , and thump in bottom , and ive been into hi end audio since 1970, when i had kh9,s marantz 9 with marantz 7c preamp , along with the 10b
I've heard the 211 Ruby along with the Ruby Preamp. Pretty much the best I've heard. Rumors are that a 300B Ruby is in the works too. If true, that should add quite the flavour to the lineup. A 211 AND a 300B to choose from with the top of the line Ruby pre. I'll be lucky to afford the Opal and some Sapphires :D
Have never heard any of the Wyetech amps, but can tell you that after more than 5 years of ownership, the Opal pre is one of the most amazing, satisfying components I have owned in more than 35 years of this mania. It is the one component in my system I never even think of changing, and like many of us, I am constantly looking to "upgrade." It probably will outlast me!
