I don't speaker the language but the Nubert nuVero 11 appear to go down to 4 ohms so they may have a complex load.
They can handle power, given that I would opt for the A21. I am thrilled with mine.

Hello Rich
NuVero11 will keep 4 Ohm as minimum, it is fix min. value
they will not go below it, so Nubert technicians,
did you try A21 to drive direct from Oppo 105D, had any troubels?
how good is a volume control with oppo 105d remote (with A21)?
best regards from Vienna

The BDP-105D works well with the Center and rears connected to the A51 and the XLR outs connected to the HA-1 which I use in HT bypass to the A21's (one for each channel). Also, no problem with the XLR connected directly to an A21. I have two friends doing that too.


The Volume control is digital using the ESS DAC. For two channel, I prefer the HA-1 so I use that as a USB DAC with J River.

Audio Advisors is a long-time dealer for Parasound, so they get favorable treatment.
interesting, thanks.

The other side of that coin is, people need to come into a store looking for something like that if they're going to sell, but if they don't know about it......

I didn't really think about that kind of piece until I decided that I wanted to play vinyl again but decided that I didn't want extra boxes laying around, so I bought the P5/A23. I don't get the USB out, but I have a Tascam for that. If I had a system that sounded as good as the Parasound and wanted to add what the ZPhonoUSB offers, it would be high on my list. I don't know if my comments will matter, but I didn't even know about that piece until after it was disco'd and I have three distributors who sell Parasound's New Classic and Z series- I don't know why two of them never said anything about that piece.

With that ZPhonoUSB, I could run the TT output through my Dirac Room Correction software.
Might have to give some thought...although, not sure it would get delivered down here...not sure it would make it though Customs.
