Well I finally have my stereo upgrade finished and it sounds sensational.
Your nxV500 lived up to every dream held and exceeded all expectations. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase, it was money well spent. And I'm not just referring to the quality of the sound reproduction, it is truly a craftsman build piece of equipment both in internal construction and in the professional external appearance. Thank you for your efforts!
This amp replaced a custom made DEX amp which was in itself is a superb amp but it simply doesn't compare to the bite of the nxV500. The nxV is so clean & crisp, I'm now hearing definition and harmonics, owing to the massive distortion free head-room, which creates perfect sound fidelity and imagery across a full range of music genres. I spent all day yesterday listening to music. First time in a long time.
However, this has created a problem in that the brilliance of the nxV is now overshadowing my bass power amp, which although has a higher power rating, cannot compete with the dynamics and punch of the nxV.
I know it would be a waste of time searching for a comparable power amp that will drive my JBL bass bins with the same energy of an nxV. I also doubt I would be satisfied with anything less than the performance of the nxV, so in order to balance my system, I have decided to order a second nxV500 from you.
