It is in the mail, my new DAC/integrated amplifier...the NAD C390DD. I have next week off from work and am really, really looking forward to connecting it to the rest of the audio equipment.
This will be the end of a few years of dreaming and saving money. It started when I read about the NAD M2 and soon after listened to it at the store. Right then I decided to start a savings account, it would take maybe six, eight years to have enough money for the M2, but I always hoped a 'little M2' in the classic series would come out sooner. And it did!
I honestly think I will have a budget system that will preform on the top end of what is in my fanatical reach.
One feature that I really think is neat is that you can have a digital crossover and use two active sub-woofers (left and right) to really fill those lower frequencies. I had one sub-woofer before and today I bought another one. Do people call this 2.2?
I hope the atmosphere will feel more real and relaxing with proper low frequency reproduction.
------The existing system-------
Apple MacBook using Audirvana software, Hegel HD10 DAC, Dared DL2000 preamplifier, NAD power amplifier, Focal chorus 826V speakers and Velodyne MiniVee SPL-800i sub-woofer.
