Looking for amp reccomendation
Thanks all for your responses.  Right now I use the NAD T777 ver 3. I don't think it uses Ncore in this version.  I was interested in brands, so brand suggestions were good.  Many on this site tout the great sound of a class A amp and I wanted to ...

Would like a Pass.  Not sure I can afford even a used one for 3K. 
Most recordings you own by a single artist, group, or composer

How much is "LOUD" still a reference point for some?
I like to listen loud after a few beers, so not a lot.  I measured 105-108 on the scale.  I would like it louder, but that's about as loud as it goes.  It's still clean at that volume.  NAD and Performa speakers.

Looks like a gimmick.

almarg The stats you provided look about right from what I see.  That is right in the ballpark.  I like how it sounds.  Wish I had a bit more volume, but I am going to live with this.  I don't need incredibly loud volume except rare occasions.

Guess I will have to settle for 105.  I don't listen at those levels often. It's not like being at a live concert.  I think if it made 110 to 115 that would be ideal.  I feel my ears strain at 107-108.  I am sure you have been to live concerts whe...

mrdecibel scm1 Ok, I need to get on the learning curve regarding NADs cut over. I don’t know what that means. Sorry about the noob status. The one thing I did do that was fast. I downloaded Keuwlsoft SPL Meter. At full volume from 8-10 feet dire...

The room is approximately 15' X 20 '.  It's not a large room.  The speakers are about 8 to 10 feet away; directly in from of the couch.  I am listening to Pandora through a laptop connected through HDMI to the NAD.  I admit, I probably shouldn't b...
