NAD C326BEE does it need to burn/run in?
I've just unboxed my new NAD C326BEE, it is replacing my oldC350 which has stopped working.
Doed this amp need to run in? Just it sounds like the upper midrange and lower treble sound very forward compared to my old amp. The reviews for the C360BEE say it is bass heavy, but compared to my C350 it sounds a bit lacking to be honest. Maybe my ageing C350 was sounding a bit soft and wooly with age and I'm just used to that presentation now. I just hope this new amp isn't going to be so fatiguing.
I haven't even had an hours use out of the new amp yet, but I'm sick of hearing it I've just turned it off.
My old amp sounded very smooth and easy to listen to, yet still very dynamic and had enough detail to satisfy me. The new one has given me a headache in half an hour and a just found myself skipping through a playlist rather than wanting to sit and listen, it seems so "in yer face" if you know what I mean?
I have a Sony CDP-XB930 CD player, iPod touch with Arcam iR dock and B&W DM 601 S3 speakers. QED qunex silver spiral and qunex2 interconnects and silver anniversary biwire speaker cable.
I appreciate any advice thanks! I'm hoping after a few hours the sound will tame down a bit and become more natural.
