NAD M22 V2 Successor?

Will NAD be coming out with a successor to the powerful NAD M22 V2? Call it an M23? A 2 channel 300 watts per channel Eigentakt amp with the same architecture as the new M28 would be an intriguing review and also a testing situation for John Atkinson.

It would be interesting but I

It would be interesting but I wonder if such a configuration is likely. There is only so much power one can get out of a single Purifi Eigentakt 1ET400A module and most applications top out at around 200w/8ohms. Higher outputs are obtained by bridging a pair, as in the C298.

It does open the question of why NAD chose to make the C298 in its plain-Jane package instead of gussied up into a Masters series chassis. The M22 v2 is selling for around $3300 these days, fwiw.

A Good Tonal Match?

Having heard the M22 V2 and the M28 would you say they make a good tonal multichannel match? This would be for people that would prefer not to bridge 2 C 298’s or use monoblocks.

I cannot say because I heard them with a space of years and never had them side-by-side or even in the same system.

I would suggest that a single C 298 would be an obvious suitable match for the M28.
