I recently cobbled together a hi-fi system, purchasing second-hand NAD components fairly cheaply. I ended up with the following:
Amplifier = NAD 302
CD player = NAD 502
Turntable = NAD 5120
Monitors = Tannoy Mercury MX1s
My headphones are Sony MDR-XB500, Audio Technica ATH-AD700 and Grado SR80i.
I like the setup, but find that sound overall is a touch too warm. I'm looking for a little clarity in the HF. I find that when feeding music from my laptop via my Creative Soundblast X-Fi Go! the sound is quite balanced, but sound from the CD player is kinda deficient where the treble is concerned.
I'm wondering whether I need to look for another CDP or whether my amp might be the issue. Any suggestions?
