    Yes, exactly, the M33, which was out first has won all kinds of awards. Then C298 came out later and could be used with the M33. It is built the same as the M series according to NAD and several reviews that I have read, only the C298 is only an...

    Randy - I've just read your post, but my post #16 should answer your questions of M23 vs C298. You mention bridging. Take a look at the M23 back panel and you'll see that it is designed to be bridged, probably in conjunction with the M33 or M12...

    Thanks for the update on a new Purifi module. The NAD C range is simply not as good as their Master Series - and it's not just the casework. It may have nominally the same Purifi module, but the one used in the M33 and M23 are built under...

    And if you can afford the A5s I reckon it will be a perfect combo. A mate has has the Diablo 300 and Sonus Faber Il Cremonese. Wonderful system. But I canít help but think that the transparency and neutrality of Magico works better with Gryphon amps.
