In general, I would say that Vincent Audio equipment is somewhat better-sounding than NAD gear.

It is tough to generalize, though, because some NAD models sound better than others.

All of the Vincent gear is very very good though; you can't go wrong there IMO.

I saw a Vincent amp on sale for a good deal. I got an email from someone else today saying they have this. arcam A18 integrated amp. Is it comparable to NAD c326bee. I wanted to hear Arcam the other day, but the store only sells it online. They didn't have a demo to hear. I contacted another store and they have arcam receiver to hear, but not A18.

Rotel has some nice amplifiers

There is a NAD C356BEE for sale for $550 in the classifieds here. The Absolute Sound magazine recommends it.

I almost bought that NAD, but then I read a post on here from a reliable poster that said it didn't sound good, so I stayed away.

For every new thing I learn, I forget two things I used to know.
