    Hi there! First post ever, but here goes!

    I've got a NAD C370 that is rather ill - it starts to distort at around 9 O'clock (a very low level for the powerful NAD) and it sounds like it is clipping. The effect occurs on both channels. After some thought, I believe this must indicate a knackered power supply.

    Does anyone know if this is correct, and does this mean I should chuck it? I love the amp, so any advice would be much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Alec

    :lease:

    I'm going to do that - I fear that it is out of waranty though (I'm sure you know what it is like finding those pesky receipts - the one you want is always the one that has gone missing!)

    On a more positive note - I picked up a Cambridge audio C500 and two P500 power amps to use in the meantime. They have been heavily modded by their previous owner (New power supplies and stuff), sound great (more refined; if a little less powerful than the NAD) and cost me £100. Quite pleased with myself on that front!
