Re: Recommend a NS10 Amp?

One other thought - if you are into DIY you could always remove the insides of the Crown or Crest amp that you have already and replace them with Hypex modules which should be within your budget. I did a similar thing with a noisy 405 a few years ago and it cost me around £250. Don’t mind doing tha...

Re: Recommend a NS10 Amp?

The NS10 really isn't that fussy about the power amp. Maybe I was unlucky but the Teac amp that we had in the studio really brought out the worst in them. I haven't tried a new 405 clone although the modules are so cheap that it seems tempting. However, having just done a little searching, it appea...

Re: Recommend a NS10 Amp?

Unfortunately the responses here are similar to what I've already got from friends and colleagues, That is people recommend old discontinued amps or hard to source equipment. Unlike some here, I actually found the Quad 405 (hifi) or 520 (pro) amps worked very nicely with NS10s. Yes, they are discon...
