My Pioneer 51FD Blu-ray player was hopeless at reading music discs, got a good deal for the NAD and been listening to music all day, loving how it just bounces along with all types of music, really enjoying it, very solid bass as has been said before, smooth, warm and detailed without over analysing things, just good fun. In last 2 months have added Dynaudio excite 12's, Chord Carnival Silver screen speaker cable and Wireworld luna 6 interconnect, all that is left is the dedicated amp to use instead of my Sony 1200es. Each addition done at different times, each piece of the puzzle just makes things better and better. First time I have really been happy with what I have with my budget taken into account LOVING IT!!!!!!
