NAD C165BEE pre amp feeler
« on: April 23, 2016, 03:09:45 PM »
I have the power amp (C275BEE) for it running on an Emotiva UMC-1 pre/pro and loving it. I do however wonder if it can get better than this, given the reviews of the pairing of the NAD combo. So I was wondering if there is anyone that may have one, and perhaps willing to part with it for a decent price. As mentioned it is a feeler, not sure of what they are worth but willing to negotiate to a certain extent. Thanks in advance for any replies.

What is the application? The UMC-1 is 7.1 and the 165 is stereo.

The 275 for stereo and HT, when used for stereo the UMC driven by Emotiva XDA-2. I would like to have a stereo pre to drive instead of a pre/pro the front main/stereo speakers are B&W 683 s1's.

The 165 does not have HT pass through, though, which you need to integrate it into your setup.

Not really concerned about HT passthrough. My main goal is to have pure stereo, I have a speaker switcher that I will use to switch between HT and stereo as the HT power amp is 5 channel, will use that for HT to drive all the spekers and the 275 for stereo. If I am not mistaken the 165 has an output for a sub as well.
