A friend of mine recently had to send his NAD C320 BEE back to be repaired. During this time, he had a CA A5 on loan and was deeply impressed. I never got to hear the amplifier in action, but he said that bass response was as good as, if not better than the NAD. He also said that the CA's reproduction was incredible, again, nearing the quality of the NAD. I've been thinking of going back to a stereo setup for some time, and was just wondering if anyone could tell me if I should give this amp a listen. Thanks for any replies.
