NAD is doing some forward thinking and offering some real "new" products as opposed to the typical improvements rolled out by the high end boutique firms. Future "preamps" will be simply DAC's with volume control, balance, etc. with the signal staying in the digital domain for amplification or running a conventional amp (like the Ncore). Hypex seems to be getting some real traction in the OEM market with some high end firms (Rogue comes to mind), enabling them to offer high power with reasonable cost.
This mentality of thinking everyone is a crook that doesn't give you their shit at cost is something I can't wait to die out largely as baby boomers die. It's literally crushed small businesses in communities and now national/international for many years.
I have the plan. I will throw in $100, if we get 29 more here to throw in $100, I will order one and we can put it on a tour for everyone else here to listen and compare to their own amps.
I'd do that. Who gets the amp at the end?
Doesn't matter. If won't be working by that time anyway.
We could either have a drawing or sell the amp on the used market, providing it is still in one piece, and split he funds back. That should be a refund of $70-75.
I thought about reselling it too, but then you have to disburse the funds and in a sense have a fiscal agent. I wouldn't want that job but someone might.
Would love to see factual basis for this comment.
Salis Audio is correct. The folks who claim they are being ripped off by companies charging too much clearly have never sat in a product development meeting at a small company and discussed retail pricing structures, cost of goods, cost of keeping a small business running, and margins.Until one is intimately involved in the running of a small business which actually produces a physical product, I would suggest it might be wise to respect those who do understand such things as the costs of keeping a business running, pricing structures, and appropriate margins.
The M22 has greater headroom than the NC400/SMPS600 (according to NAD), has both balanced XLR and single-ended RCA inputs, a 12V trigger and a 3 year warranty.The casework looks nicer than the majority of the DIY nCore projects that I've seen posted here, and has a very nice vent detail.A nice effort and it seems to be competitively priced in the marketplace.Steve
You must be joking?
No I was not joking. That is why I asked. I was curious as to the basis for your anticipation of the supposed death of an attitude by the death of specific age-class of human beings. Whether it was anecdotal or scientifically based. Now I know.
