Great value preamp
I have had it for a week and, for sure, it stills needs to settle but, so far, I am very impressed. I bought it to drive my analog sources as my AVR HK 2600 was not the best for that. Now the analog sources (turntable, CD/DCR, cassette deck/graphic equalizer, stereo signal from the DVD and bluetooth-analog converter go to this NAD preamp) and then go to the HK just for amplification and then to a pair of Klipsch RP250F. The HK does a very job when it comes to just amplification and reflects all the detail and depth that the NAD processes. Bass is tight, midrange has separation and depth and there is no white noise/splashing in the high notes. The unit is truly dead quiet; no hum at all even at the highest gain. It has a very nice tape monitor loop which let me use my Yamaha/Onkyo combo of graphic equalizer/cassette deck or just equalize the source at my own preference. Great unit.
Pros: Connectivity options, performance comparable to the one of much more pricey devices.
