Somebody needs to hear one of these and compare to our DIY builds. Crutchfield, with it's 60-day return privilege, makes it mighty tempting.
I nominate Dan Rubin. He has the skill set, the experience, the level head, the flawless taste and the idea. Who better to carry this ingenious pursuit through to a conclusive outcome for the Audio Circle community? Go Dan!!
Who wants to be the angel investor for this project?
In the past the same guy that has passed them around also funded it.
Sounds like a winning business model to me. How about if each tour stop pays a rental fee plus shipping to the next stop?
Not how it was done the last time. Lay it on the line!
What is that supposed to mean?
The all-discrete driver and output stage have also been improved for lower open-loop THD as well as lower idling losses, normally conflicting requirements with conventional IC driver circuitry.
The amp is DC coupled throughout, from input to output, there is no capacitor in the forward signal path.
Read this and this.
I knew all about the previous graciousness from Dan. My point was why did you expect Dan to spend $3000 and do it all over again?
I cannot understand what was the concept behind this product!It is overpriced and most likely won't gain a good place in the market and will live a short life. If it does, more power to them or you might think I am crazy to call it overpriced but this is how I look at it.Let's forget about the few companies that try to sell this for $10k for a moment. It seems like the $10k is a new target price for this companies and nothing cheaper make them any happier.NAD, this British company(originally) never meant to be a product for hi-fi but mid-fi or even lower. Back in the old days when they were in England, some of their integrated amps were really a good value for the money when you compare them with the same class stuff in the market.You always could find better receivers and pre or power amps for the same money if you take your time and look around. They even made number of tape decks which was nothing but junk.In mid 90's they moved to Taiwan and they had a lot of problems with quality control over the years. You can ask who ever was the dealer and they will tell you the number of units that customers were bringing them back for issues.Now in this days, even Taiwan is too expensive for them and they moved the whole factory to China.Audio advisor has it as well with 30 days return policy. Here is the link and if you zoom the picture of the back of the amp, you can see the made in China at the left hand corner.http://www.audioadvisor.com/NAD-M22-Master-Series-Stereo-Amplifier/productinfo/NAM22/#.VCHp4kZATIUThis is the most basic module most likely and assembled under the cheap labor in China. Nothing really special about the box which is made out of sheet metal. So is this what you would like to pay $3k for?I think if anyone is interested in this amp, should buy the kit with better quality parts and make a nice heavy box out of aluminum for it, and even if it cost the same money or less(which would be most likely)would be the better value for money as well the product.
