"Outstanding Product"

"... NAD's combo delivers a sound that really draws you into a recording, its spotlighting of detail grabbing your attention so that nothing else matters ... Bass was not just detailed and tuneful but impressively extended and immensely weighty ... This NAD really does 'feel' powerful and nimble, with a sense of grace during even the most complex musical passages."

4 out of 5 stars

Powerful, dynamic and arousing are just some of the words that Tech Radar might use to describe the NAD combination. Although it may be missing some control, this does not depreciate the NAD's abilities with detail. Listening to this system was exhilarating, particularly when the volume was cranked up high, giving the listener zeal and initiative.

"very good" (4 out of 5 stars)

"For: Sonic muscle, authority and scale; feature list; well-judged presentation.
Against: Not the last word in transparency at this price; unimpressive feel and finish for the money."
