Bottom Line:   
This is a fantastic power amp which combined with NAD T758 (preout) brings forward sound I never have heard from my Linn LP12 turntable. Low tones are played relaxed with power I never heard before. Why do they not makes these today?

Bottom Line:   
Update:

Further extensive tests of this amp with various speakers the last few months show the 208 to be still very relevant today. Its ability to drive many speaker rhythmically with a friendly, warm presentation yet remaining satisfyingly transparent surprised a few. Although it did not have the ultimate spotlight and detail prowess of the Audio Research Classic 120 monoblocks for example, the NAD gave a nice rendition of hard hitting jazz, sweeping orchestral works or intimate jazz quartet settings through a pair of Magneplan 1.6.

Playing with support and ferrite cores on the internal signal/power cables yielded a tighther, cleaner and more defined presentation - a more up to date sound. Solid grip on music.

Oh, and the midband improves a great deal after an hour of warm-up.
