    Ha! My second one is coming tomorrow - supposedly. I was going to only do one, but with the big price increases coming Jan 1 for NAIM, I figured now or never. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    If they are available to you look at Herbie's Audio for some isolation feet, they are very reasonably priced and work. Probably need Tender Foot and maybe one of the items to place on top, forgot the name.

    As far as I know it's Class AB, but definitely NOT Class D. Akitika does make a preamp kit that's supposed to be really good.
