    I need help deciding between the two. The ST-140 is used but in good shape, its a 105wpc, the other is new and only 55wpc. I can't decide they're both the same price and I cant find any reviews on the st55.2. Any of you guys know?

    More power is always better IMO, id go with the ST-140 if its been taken care of.

    I was thinking the same except, I'm going to running an Adire KIT51 and I'm not sure but can the adire's handle the power of ther st-140? its close to 200wrms, while the 55.2 is 85

    The ST140 is one of the great power amps of all time.

    An all time classic, I agree. I have seen them go as low as $180 on A'gon.

    I agree that the 140 is a great amp. I have had one for several years and recently passed it to my brother to use till he can buy his own. You won't go wrong. Amps are a bit like engines, there are no substitutes for Cubic Inches!!
