Thanks vulture99. I'm in the same boat.
I'm using a NAD integrated C372, but am eyeing this unit. I like the NAD, but it does have a little hiss that I'd like to eliminate. Can I assume the Panny has no hiss?
Also, I'm using the NAD to run 2 sets of speakers - it's taken this much amp, in my opinion, to drive them all adequately - I tried a Cambridge Audio 640A and it kept going into protection mode at relatively high levels.
How does the Panny compare in this area to the NAD? I assume I'd dual amp one set of the speakers. Do you anticipate there being enough power to drive them hard, now that you've compared to your NAD unit?
