My c388 broke down and while in repair the dealer provided me with a NAD M10. It was a delight to listen to with my Lintons. The Dirac took care of the uncontrolled bass, however I was not to happy with voices. Took home a Naim Atom and it was quite different, the singers more present and close up. Enjoyed it. However the Lintons bass was all over my living room. I then decided to give the 1120 a try and immediately I realized it is a good match with the speakers. And 1000 euros cheaper!
