NAD

Any help from someone with knowledge of the NAD line is appreciated.

I am looking at the 372 and 272 and we have no dealer here in St. Louis. If I go with the 272 it would be for the seeable future be paired with my Adcom GFP1a pre. I have been told that in addition to being old it's not a great pre anyway. Or do I go ahead and just buy the 372 integrated and be done with upgrades.

This is for two channel and I don't use a turntable. Cost is an issue and I am open to other suggestions.

Currently I have;

Cambridge audio 640 v1 cd spinner
Adcom GFP1a pre
Adcom GFA2 amp
Paradigm reference v3 Studio 40's

Thanks, Chris

Re: NAD

What does your current system do or "not" do that you wish to improve upon? Also, what interconnects and speaker wire are you using and have you optimized the speaker placement in your listening room?

Re: NAD

I am not sure you are going to achieve much if any sound improvement going from Adcom to NAD. I would certainly spend a Saturday's drive to audition before I bought. This might be a lateral move, or worse.

Home Theater Concepts in Morton, IL might be the closest.

Re: NAD

It only plays the right channel intermittently. I have had it in the shop a couple of times but the problem persists. At this point I would rather put the 100 clams it cost to get "fixed" towards new gear.

I am open to suggestions for new or used gear.

Check the AV Marketplace on this web site for some good used amps.
