nad c326bee with b&w


Novice Member
Hi, I've bought this nad a few days ago, but connected to my b & w dm 603 s1 I do not like how it sounds.
The low range is overpowered, the sound is veiled, without open in the mid-high.
I do not found depth in sound and lack of transparency.
If I wanted to replace it, which other integrated I can consider?
They speak very well of the Creek Evolution 50A, which seems to have the kind of sound I'm looking for.

Also, is the room the same size as the one in which you originally heard the speakers?

there's another thing the amplifier overheats after 30 minutes of use, this is normal?
If I switch on the "soft clipping" the temperature is more low but it still warms up.

I found my old nad c320bee sounded exactly like that with my monitor audio speakers. The bass was overpowering at times and wasn't open enough. Was really good with acoustic music but not rock and guitar music.

I replaced it eventually with a primare i21 amp and everything was better. Bass is still controlled but the soundstage is much more open.
