anybody running dual NAD C298's?


currently have one of these amps attached to pair of Dynaudio Special Forties

wondering if there is significant benefit to running two C298's?

I have had my NAD298 running in tandem with an NAD 275BEE for about two years now. The 298 feeds a pair of Martin Logan Motion 40's while the 275 feeds two Martin Logan 35XTi's. Front end preamp is a Rogue RP-1.

My experience is that the A/B Class AMP 275 is more expressive and matches up better with the 35XTi's because the Folded Motion XT tweeter is bigger on the bookshelf sized 35Xti's than the Motion 40 towers. For a time period, I had the D-Class 298 hooked up to the 35Xti's, but the amp overwhelmed the bookshelf speakers with power - just as one would suspect judging from specifications alone.

What I get out of this setup is plenty of power with great bass (no subs) with virtually no heat. (The 275BEE gets slightly warm at best).

A simple search of "NAD" (on Agon) results in 19K+ responses, while "Yamaha" nets only 12K+ responses.

That, in and of itself, suggests that NAD is a more popular topic and brand than Yamaha.

Just sayin'. 

@goodlistening64, brotha.  you don't need to tell me.  i own NAD2200/1155, and a big fan of their stuff.  I've been told my gear is mid-fi, i call myself the king of low-fi gear. in Agon.

@goodlistening64, curious why you need to bridge to 500watts?  ML Motion 40 are not hard to drive unless you're having a back yard BBQ club party and need 1000watts.  Are you looking to push the amp to max wattage?
