Summary: I've alwasy been more of a traditionalist using amps and pre-amps; however, after much review I decided to give NAD's 375 a try. I have to say, I was pleasently amazed at how clean the sound was.
Pros: Very well built, good quality, clean sound, suitable power
Cons: Wish it had digital audio inputs (i.e. fiber optic cables) and little bit more power (i.e. 175 or 200 watts).
Summary: Use this to push 2 paradigm studio 60's, also have a klipsh 300 watt self powered sub that I hooked to the b channels which seems to work really well that way, adds just enough but not too much. Had an Arcam 120 watts channel that was never this crisp and clear even when new.
Summary: I had believed that amplification had little to do with sound quality and that, if you gave a set of speakers sufficient power, the speakers were 99% of the sound quality equation.
Pros: Typical NAD quality build. Crystal clear power. Wonderful driver control. Bass is super crispy. Soft clipping. Front panel aux jack. This amp will drive ANY pair of speakers.
Cons: Gets quite warm. Volume adjustments using remote control are not very fine. Remote control only works with other NAD products. When listening with headphones (both speaker sets off), pre-out 2 is still active (this is a problem if you have a sub connected and you're trying to be quiet).
Summary: My system has never sounded this good. The Gallo speakers, especially, seem to pair well with this integrated amp. I'm waiting for the NAD CD player to arrive in order to see if the sound can be made even better.
Summary: I bought this amp to replace my Denon amp that was 25 years old. I am totally amazed how much difference in made in the sound. The mids and highs are much smoother. The bass has more punch. I have heard tube amps before, but did not realize that solid state could be made to sound this good.
Pros: Excellent sound for the money.
Cons: Speaker wires have to be fed into the top of the posts and cannot be fed through the bottom. It is a little annoying, but minor.
Summary: This amp arrived yesterday, late afternoon, bouncing down our driveway with the sheep&cows all standing, watching in awe.. I opened box, did quick scan, and figured would wait until TODAY, to get a full day in and get it hooked up to listen & compare...My Wife knew better.
Pros: Price is good, function & ease of use/hook-up is great
Cons: I have to replay 10,000 + vinyl records, to "HEAR" them all over again ! ! !
Summary: I bought this with the hope it would power my Cerwin Vega XLS-215's and I was NOT dissapointed !! Rocks the house like none other. Half the time I can turn the Cerwin Vega Sub off. I would like to hear this with a pair of the Polk A9's thou.
Pros: Easy set up, great sound. Liked two inputs for tape decks. I still have two and a EQ.
Summary: Extraordinarily good receiver. I pair this with PSB Synchrony Two B bookshelf speakers, staged using Jim Smith's "Get Better Sound", and the overall setup is marvelous. Source is usually 96khz recordings played on a Macbook through Audirvana, output through USB to a NuForce DAC, then out to the NAD.
Pros: Everything above. Such a big step up from what I had before it's hard to describe.
Cons: Heavy, and the remote sometimes doesn't respond well. The remote seems under-engineered compared to everything else.
