God, I would want to switch out those old school binding posts for some banana plugs. Is that even possible or practical? I want the sound described but at very low volume with carefully chosen speakers like Crites.

Scott Rose says:

I have had this amp for about a year…love it!

Charles Jacques says:

Appreciate your reactions since I’ve never owned a Mc but you never forget hearing one ever. What is the US model/price point of the amp in your video? Thanks, the vid was perfect for me.

Hank Landsberg says:

Thanks for this review. Have you ever reviewed the NAD M22? Any comparison with the MC152?

Paul Kingsman says:

Thanks for your great review, you mentioned ‘ Isolation devices’ that you used what are they exactly? I’m thinking of getting this Amp.
