I have always been a fan of NAD, I really like there musicality that to me is on the warm, neutral side. There build quality has always been spot on. Not the greatest in eye candy but's fine. I have been keeping my eye out for a 2 channel amp & the C 275BEE is calling me. I know there are plenty of other great amps in there price range (new & used). Anyone with first with first hand listening experience on this particular amp.

    Don't have any firsthand experience, but on another forum I'm on someone who's opinion I respect about audio always posts about his 275BEE amp and how much he likes it.

    The wallet is maxed out at about 1,200 for this new project.

    Does the "project" include more than an amp, or, just an amp. That particular piece is solid, but, doesn't particularly "excite" me aurally speaking.

    I'm unable to see any related equipment in the signature being on my phone, but, what is your goal for this project, what are the associated pieces you're trying to integrate with this amp? Is this main rig? Computer rig?

    I have one paired with a Dared tube pre. Drives 2b-tl's with ease. Tight solid bass, clean mids and highs. A little warm but more neutral than other NADs I've owned/heard. I'm quite happy with it.
    SDA 2B-TL (Sonicap/Solen/Mills, Erse Super Q, Rings, Spikes, No-Rez)
    1000VA Dreadnought
    Dared SL-2000a (Siemens & Halske TM 12AT7WA's, Brimar 5Z4G)
    Jolida JD-100a (Sylvania BP TM Gold Brand 5751's), NAD C275BEE, Blue Jeans
