Summary: Powering PSB Synchrony two speakers that require a lot of juice, this NAD is up to the task. This isn't a world-tackling amp, but it doesn't interfere with my speaker performance. I got the onboard DAC and play my music through the USB on my macbook from lossless files on itunes.
Summary: First off let me start with I was replacing a 25 year old medium end JVC receiver driving new Klipsch R7 speakers. I originally ordered the Marantz PM8004 that was $200 more. Due to a misunderstanding with the Crutchfield advisor the tape output is not a loop and would not drive my EQ or DBX.
Pros: Cost. A value based price; Amazing sound; Superb customer service; Simple to install and run.
Cons: Integrated DAC module does not run I-devices; could drive the bass a bit harder
Summary: The most powerful amp I've heard. I barely have to turn the volume up at all on this thing before It gets really loud. Sound Is clean and accurate. I've owned Sony, Onkyo and Denon amps in the past and NAD blows them away!
Summary: I purchased this to replace my old Denon amp from 1985? It is very nice.... It does everything pretty well. Not outsanding anywhere but that's just fine with me... It completely stays out of the way of the muisc. You can listen all day long to this amp.
Summary: I have owned various NAD products for many years. This amplifier replaced my NAD C160 preamp and C270 120W power amp mainly due to space considerations. What a significant upgrade! This is a heavy and very well made product that clearly outperforms my more expensive much older components.
Pros: Impressive sound quality and listenability. Music is just better! Appearance, size, and blue lights for each input selector button. Very nice remote that can be used for all NAD components, including Blu Ray and CD players.
Cons: The amp seems to run cooler than many but the top needs good ventilation space. Be careful when stacking components on the amp.
Summary: I have been an audiophile all of my life. I couldn't be happier having purchased this amp. Of course, the speakers are as important as the amp and connecting several sets of speakers to it, I was pleased with the clarity and lack of distortion that I heard.
Pros: Powerful enough to drive my speakers, with low distortion.
Cons: You can't hook up a sub-woofer, but my 99A Pioneers have 15" woofers so I'm OK without it. However, this could be a real issue for most other speakers.
