Just for interest, a repair thread on another amp.
http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php…
Purchased from the original owner (1 owner from new)
Serviced and capacitors replaced. Both Left and Right well within specification. This is one for the collector.

The Class A mode puts 2x 15W into 8 Ohm into your ears, and Class AB up to 2x 70W.
The "current steering" circuit allows the output pairs of transistors to remain in Class A for currents up to twice the bias current, with a power supply lowered to ±26V but a bias current increasing to... 0,5A !

Asking R 6,500.00 ONCO or WHY















Thanks for looking....

Given up trying to copy and paste on my phone. >:(
I've got that complete NAD setup in this "for  sale " if you're interested in a swap ?
Cheers.
