Bottom Line:   
This was my very first amp on my audiophile hobby. Paired it with a denon sc-m37 speaker and a ac ryan mini for mp3/flac audio. Went on to acquire a b&w DM601 S3 and NAD T760 AV receiver due to the B&W's hungry power requirements. After mixing and matching for a while, found the NAD 310 and sc-m37 pairing to be much more musically enjoyable. The NAD 310 was able to churn out a noticeably cleaner and more detailed signal. Instruments strikes with more precision and depth while vocals sounded sweet. The T760 was more powerful but sounded a bit flat. Was expecting the b&w and t760 to perform better but surprisingly the 310 and sc-m37 win hands down due to their openess, clarity and warmness.

Bottom Line:   
PIcked it up for 125 bucks after reading about its internals, which feature a truly unique circuit design using both mosfet and bipolar output transistors. Switching from a morrison elad and rotel combo to this it was immediately apparent that this amplifier shows a spectrum of distortion. However, it is a pleasant and tube like distortion with the kick of solidstate. Still not as much punch as the 30watt rotel but well worth the price especially if under a hundred bucks. I think its ideal for smaller single driver full range speakers, where its harmonics and sweetness could shine. High efficiency speakers would fare well probably too. Im using psb alphas and am quite satisfied.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this CD player from e-bay after reading reviews from various internet sites including this one. Quality, quality, quality is the best way to describe the sound and lets face it why else buy a CD player except for listening. If you can get one for the price I paid do so you will not, repest not be disappointed.

Bottom Line:   
Purchased this sweet little amp new while in my last year of university in engineering. Decision to buy was based on previously seeing the insides and being impressed by the quality of the components and ultra simplicity of design. An awesome performer considering the price. This amp has never been turned off since '95 (It stays powered up 24hrs) and has driven many different loads. At present its my primary computer amp, driving a pair of Energy Pro 22. Excellent for ambience and low to medium level volumes. Huge headroom for such a tiny amp. A real bargain today at used prices.

Bottom Line:   
My first foray into Hi-fi. Have been messing around with dolby home cinema in the past, and always been curious about 2 channel stereo.

Out of the box, it has the typical minimalist NAD look, but with tone controls, and an assortment of buttons. The amp is a real lightweight, but looks good enough. Equipment used, are Marantz CD67SE, Mordaunt Short MS10i's with wireworld tetra III speaker cables, and QED Qunex 2 interconnects.

Sound-wise, this little amp surprises pleasantly. Soft to moderate volume levels are where it belongs, as the amp is not bassy at all. Smooth, clean and with enough detail to satisfy my jazz, and classical needs. But when the music gets busy, soundstaging starts to fall apart and what little bass there was fades away.

I've since upgraded to something with more power, a Cyrus 2.. but i still keep my NAD, for listening to digital radio thru my satellite receiver.
