Excellent performing, Excellent sound, Quality build, Great price-NAD165BEE!!!
I bought 1 of these 5 months ago to see if it would better the sound & performance of my Parasound Halo P5, which I use with either my Primaluna Dialogue Premium tube amp or Parasound Halo A21 amp. I have to say ,after putting on 60 hours of music through the NAD, It smokes the HaloP5 in build, sonics, performance,& price. VERY nice sound across the board, gets better as more time runs through it.If you need a DAC, go buy a decent one, the one in the Halo P5 is really a "starter DAC", It works , but a stand alone one will reap much better results for serious HI-FI. The 165BEE is a steal preamp that could sell for 2x it's price considering what you hear & get. Highly recommend this sweet preamp!!
