I posted this on the Arcam board, but got no response, so I thought I would try it here. I'm trying to determine which would be the best option - a second-hand Alpha 9 (going for between £250-£270 on E-Bay) or a new NAD C352 (around £300). They have similar output power, similar price, although the NAD would be new, with that nice new smell you get when you first unpack something...but, I digress! Use would be mainly music, although I play the TV through the amp, and the occassional DVD. Speakers are Montior Audio Silver S1. Obviously it's very difficult (impossible?) to demo a Alpha 9 alongside the NAD, so I'm looking for anyone who has had experience of both these amps. Any thoughts/opinions?
