Hi, I finally got my new system set up and to be honest, I'm a bit disapointed. My complete setup is: NAD C352 + NAD542 with Van Den Hul The Name interconnects. Quad 12L speakers bi-wired with QED silver aniversary speaker cable. The problem is that it just sounds too thin and lean. At first I thought that it was just the wrong choice of speakers, as I know that the quads are extremely detailed, and neutral sounding. I tried swapping the interconnects around in different combinations and it didn't make any real difference. I then tried plugging in a set of headphones and still have the same problem. So now I'm sure it's something to do with the NAD gear and not the speakers. It's particularly noticable when listening to stuff like T-Rex, that normally has a warm, full, lush sound. In fact, I took the T Rex CD and played it on my girlfriend's £30 Goodmans hifi from Argos with the same headphones as before - and I have to say, it was a whole lot better. The punchy warm sound as expected was there. Obviously the detail, imaging etc lacked badly (as you would expect!) but the sound was so much fuller. At first I thought maybe the NAD gear just needed to be run in. I've played it for about 20hrs now, and whilst it has got better, it hasn't really improved by a significant amount. I recalled that the NAD C352 got a bad review from What HIFI to begin with due to lack of bass, and thought that maybe I got one of the bad ones. But then I read that NAD didn't release any C352s for retail before they fixed the problem. So I guess that's not it. Any ideas? Maybe I should just send it all back and go with a Cambridge Audio setup instead?
