Hi Colin. Thought I report in on the purchase of my Nord Two SE ICE1200AS2. I have had the amplifier running almost non-stop for over 150 hours since my purchase. This is my first endeavor into Class D, and I must say it was money well spent! I am hearing incredible dynamics, tonality and detail. Much of the music I enjoy is acoustic guitar, and the “pluck” of the strings and decay is extremely life-like; very much like some of the live versions I have attended. The amp can play as loud as I demand with no signs of strain, displaying the same characteristics witnessed at moderate or low-level listening volumes. All this said, will I be sidelining my SS class A and A/B amplifiers in the near future? Only time will tell, but for the time being, I am really enjoying the music.
