One gets what one pays for

My Marantz PM 7200 finally bit the dust recently and I could not afford a suitable replacement at the time. I had read good reviews about the NAD c316bee and noticed that it had won awards, so I decided to purchase one. I gave it plenty of opportunity to burn in. Im sorry. I really tried to like it. It does reveal a good deal of low-level detail and has excellent channel separation. I also use it as a cheap two-channel home theater amp, in which it performs better than the Marantz did. For music, however,it just doesnt quite do it for me. It is so midrange heavy it just sounds harsh and grainy. Perhaps Im not being fair. My speakers are a DIY project using powerful twelve inch woofers and most people are most likely to use this with small bookshelf speakers. The amp has its merits but it is just not my cup of tea.

My man cave amp

I just received this amp early today great, quick service from Audio Advisors and am blown away! I purchased this to update the system in my basement woodworking shop, which was my college system from the late 70s. My man cave system tops our multi thousand dollar home theater set-up and our sitting room stereo system again many times the price range of this amp. This has to be one of the best audio bargains out there!
