Indeed. On the other hand the C275BEE has a lot more power. But I agree that the price is high. Too bad that the C275BEE is the only Class AB power amplifier in the NAD lineup now.Keep in mind this one can be found used for ~150€ while the C275BEE is ~1400€ new..
My opinion is that other companies offer better value than the C275BEE, e.g Outlaw M2200 and Monoprice Monolith 2-chan.
