Selling this wonderful NAD M22 amp. I've had it in my setup for longer than any other component, which is saying something considering how quickly I cycle through equipment. The M22 uses the legendary Hypex nCore modules which are insanely low distortion and also stay very cool. I bought this amp to replace a big Ayre V-5xe class AB as the Ayre heated up my listening room to uncomfortable temperatures during our hot Georgia summer. In comparison, the NAD stays barely warm to the touch. I thought I'd be taking a big step back in terms of sound quality going from the Ayre to the NAD, but was shocked when I plugged in the M22 for the first time as it is significantly better than its hot-running competition in most ways. The best way I can describe the sound is "liquid" and "propulsive". Bass control and definition is the best I've ever heard, bar none. The sound is smooth and completely free of grain. Imaging is highly defined with a wide soundstage. As you can tell, I don't really understand the criticisms of modern class D amps as this proved to me that Hypex nCore modules are the real deal. I never, ever found the M22 to be harsh, fatiguing or anything but neutral and transparent. The M22 has such low distortion that Stereophile editor John Atkinson had to adjust his measurement methodology to ensure that he was actually testing distortion. It's really a marvel of engineering. Here are some reviews. It's currently a Stereophile Recommended component: https://www.stereophile.com/content/nad-masters-series-m22-power-amplifier https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/amplifier/power-amplifier/nad-masters-series-m12-preamp-and-m22-stereo-power-amplifier-review/ http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/nad-m12-m22-preamplifier-power-amplifier https://www.ultraaudio.com/index.php/equipment-menu/552-nad-masters-series-m22-stereo-amplifier-and-m12-preamplifier-dac#most-read-equipment-reviews Rated VERY conservatively at 8/10 because I am the second owner (I've had it for 8 months) and rating it higher would feel dishonest. However, I see no physical blemishes anywhere. Comes with original packaging, power cord, remote trigger cable, and USB stick (I believe there's a manual on it). Buyer to cover PayPal fees. Shipping is a flat $60.
