NAD gives great value for the money.
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
OK, my Linn Majik died after 17 years of service. I would dis Linn more than I would NAD since I bought the Linn believing it would be "music for life". Anyway, I had owned NAD gear before and during the time I had Linn. I had a NAD 3140 Integrated Amplifier as power behind my first "real" hi-fi system nearly 40 years ago. I had an NAD tuner. I suggested NAD gear to friends and family who wanted good gear. I had pretty much decided on another NAD integrated amp when the right channel on my Majik crapped out. Let's toss in that the high end hifi dealers I went to carried NAD for their entry level systems. I think I am solid in my belief that this is well-designed and a value for the money. The only drawback is I wish it had a tape function for input and output. Some people still use tape decks, but really more for digitizing my old LPs. That is the only function that the Majik had that this doesn't. In fact, I would say this is a much better buy than the Linn if you don't want to spend a lot of money for a good sound. I live in the city and don't need a lot of power. I want to toss in that Crutchfield I think that was a good choice for buying this.
Pros: Great value for the money. Great for city dwellers.
Cons: I wish it had a tape function for input and output.
