Not nearly as good as i expected, but still a quality component
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I had high expectations for this unit, considering the price and reputation of NAD. I had recently ordered several 2 channel amps to compare side by side with my Kef Q300. This unit has tons of power and is built well, there is no question about it. this one was by far the most powerful of all the amps that i demoed but it was also almost double the price of all of the others. The NAD has a very specific sound signature, and if you like that, then great, this amp is for you. However i found that the NAD enhanced some frequency ranges more than others and had a bit of a frequency gap in certain key areas. while other amps are allowing me to hear things in my music that i have never heard before, the NAD actually took that away. I tried fine tuning the sound with the bass and treble controls, but they are nearly useless as they only raise and lower a very small frequency range in the low and high end.
Pros: Lots of power, and a clean sound. very well built, sturdy.
Cons: Sound quality and reproduction was disappointing with certain frequencies being diminished
