    hello everyone, i'm thinking of setting up this system, do you guys think its a good combination at all?

    Nad c350 i-amp
    nad c521 or c541 cdp
    Monitor Audio Bronze 4 floorstanders


    obviously, its mainly for 2channel CD music playback but then maybe some 2channel music dvdplayback as well

    what do you guys think?

    thanks a lot

    as long as your getting good prices as these are outdated models
    They were very good but at full price have been easily improved upon.
    C352 @ £350, C521bee @ £200, or C542 @ £330
    Bronze4 are fairly good but try the Monitor audio silver S5 well worth a demo!!

    thanks for the reply bobbypunk

    the B4s, i've been using them since they came out so no chance of replacing them (no dough)

    the c350 and the c521, im getting it second hand at £160 for both, if with the c541
    i can get them for £200

    what im worried about is the B4 being 6ohms, im wondering if the nad would be a good match to them?

    btw, any known issues with these Nad items that i should be wary of and need to look out for? am i better getting them second hand or am i better getting an ex-demo from hyperfi as they're doing the c350 for £150 (i guess)

    cheers

    I would advise getting the 541i over the 521i. Much better sounding CDP. The 350 should be able to drive the B4's with ease:D

    just an update

    i ended up with the c350 and c521i...i didnt realize the 541 was being sold at £200 alone...
    great sounding especially for the price i got them, and they did matched well with the B4s and even the B2s

    however,the sound is not far from my HT setup which is mainly H/K dvd22 and H/K AVR507LE and monitor audio bronze speakers (again)...so in a nutshell, i wouldnt have bought it if not for the price

    thanks :)
