To Jeff Fritz,
I’ve owned NAD gear since the original 3020, and own a D 7050 today, so I read with interest your review of the M12/M22 combo.
Lurking at the same price, one quarter the size, and half the rated power, is the Devialet 120. What’s your take of one versus the other?
While the NAD Masters Series components that I reviewed do share a number of strengths with the Devialet 120 -- such as quietness, great bass, and excellent transparency -- the French amp is simply better in every regard. It is a benchmark product that will be hard to top with anything else. Now, if you want the flexibility of separates, then the NADs are a hard proposition to pass up. . . . Jeff Fritz
