you want a clean, powerful sound from your amplifier and a product that can be
trusted as well? The NAD 2200 2-Channel Amplifier will suit your needs
perfectly. I have had this amp for more than ten years and it has been
flawless. My Magnepan Tympani 1D speakers are huge. They consists of three 6ft
panels for each channel and the NAD drove the easily, with plenty of head room
The NAD 2200 Amplifier boasts of an RMS power of
1100W (at 4 Ohms) with a frequency response of 20Hz to 20,000Hz. This 2-Channel
Amplifier's control circuit automatically adjusts the maximum power output as
per the character of the signal being amplified. When the signal fed into it is
consistently high, the maximum output declines in order to prevent overheating.
If you are an audiophile who wants a quality sound with minimal care, the NAD
2200 is the one for you!
HIFI CLASSIC - REVIEW
Despite its conventional appearance, the NAD
2200 is radically different from other stereo power amplifiers in its design
and performance, some aspects of which border on the spectacular. It carries a
relatively moderate power rating of 100 watts per channel into 8-ohm loads from
20 to 20,000 Hz with no more than 0.03 percent distortion. In size, weight, and
price, it is similar to a number of other good 100-watt amplifiers. Not
surprisingly, it follows the NAD tradition of giving its amplifiers
conservative power ratings and the ability to drive low-impedance speaker loads
without difficulty (the clipping power output is specified as 140 watts into 8
ohms or 200 watts into 4 ohms).
However, the NAD 2200-which the manufacturer
calls the "Power Tracker"-has some remarkable dynamic power
capabilities. Its dynamic headroom is rated at 6 dB, which means that it can
deliver-in 20-millisecond bursts, twice per second-400 watts per channel to 8
ohms, 600 watts to 4 ohms, and 800 watts to 2-ohm loads.
