Bottom Line:   
This amp it was my second chance to NAD. Before this one, I had the NAD C352 for a while, then I sell it. I bought this one based on the constants reviews speaking well of NAD (including EISA award 2008/2009).

I had changed virtual all components around the NAD, including buying a DAC just to find the source for bad sound.

However, after change the amp, by other not NAD, it was clear that the NAD don't worth it a single penny! The old story that 100$ extra in NAD models makes all the difference it's the prove of that. How can some one say, as it happens, that the model C352 has much better sound than the C315 bee? It's only true if the C315 really s***s!

The story that says that NAD focuses in simplicity to arrive better sound it's a big lie. Not true at all.

By the way, if you want cheap, good, and guaranteed quality, go to YAMAHA! They don't have the fancy toroidal transformers (another NAD delusion), because they simple don't need it to sound good. Just type YAMAHA in AMAZON.COM and you will see how good this brand is...

Regards.

Bottom Line:   
This is a beautiful amplifier. It looks tiny but can do serious damage to other amplifiers that are rated a higher power.
Sound is very pleasent, works very well with monitor audio, i have mine pared with MA RS6 and it sounds amazing.

Great detail, smooth sound especialy the voices, not tiering at all. Very good treble, not that TZTZTZTZ treble but smooth, and almost earth shaking bass.

All and all this product is very good for it's price. I recomend it.

Real hi-fi at small price!!

Bottom Line:   
This Amp has very nice, simple design and is good small - great for my small room. I love this NAD design.
Sounds really nice and transparent, enough details as for myself. Bass is good - I'm not a bass fanatic, so I'm glad with this amps bass.
Treble and mids have many details and good definition.

Remote control is the best one i've ever seen - so simple, only important functions, but all youll ever need! I like this, cause often used in darkness, so you never miss the buttons.

i also like the amps simplicity, everything is clear, no features that disturb.

BUT: One weakness that disqualifies this one!
It has 2 Power-Buttons. One in front that only makes Standby and a real one in the back. Goddamn, why such a stupid solution - who wants to search a button somewhere in the back of the amp, between cables???

And the worst: it BURNS 20 Watts in the Standby-mode!!!! hell, thats nearly as much as my refrigerator!!!

What went wrong with you NAD-engineers??? thats a complete failure! It goes to ebay and maybe if they fix this Power-problem ill buy it again.

Bottom Line:   
An excellent amp. Well balanced. Good wide stereo staging. Voices and instruments do not flow into each other. Good bass. It is rated at 2 x 40 watts in 8 ohm but is much louder because it delivers 2x95 watts dynamically at 8 ohm. This amp likes all types of music. From classical to jazz to hip-hop to progressive rock resolution is excellent. Warm sound. I could whine about the fact that it doesn't have a phonogram input, but that just means you will need a phono stage to play your LP's. Tone defeat switch so you can bypass the bass and treble adjustment circuit. Of course there is also a balance adjustment. Inputs are: CD, Tuner, Tape, AUX, Disc and MP. MP is for a media player such as an iPod. Comes with remote NAD Amp 1 that can also control a NAD CD player. There is no bling-bling features and flashy displays here as is NAD's policy - music first. You can connect 4 ohm or 8 ohm speakers to this amp. I have it connected to 2 floorstanding 8 ohm speakers rated at 200 watts and it drives them effortlessly. So you can choose between shelf and floorstanding speakers. I would not connect this amp to speakers with huge bass units, though. A new legendary amp is born.
