Sample Test – NAD C298 VS Bryston 4B SST3

Some images don’t need any textual clarification. They just need music! Our goal is to make samples of as many products as possible. Purely because in our opinion it can be fun and useful to just listen to equipment. This time: The NAD C298 power amplifier on our reference set: the Focal Sopra No1, the Pass Labs XP12, Bryston 4B SST3 (as an opponent) and the Metrum duo. Tip: put on good headphones for best results.
