NAD 1240

Picked this up at the local pawn shop. I love it, awesome phono section, lots of line inputs, and very easy to service. The bottom panel comes off to give full access to the bottom of the 1 main board. You can solder out/in whatever you need to without removing anything but the top and bottom panels. Just an FYI, there are a couple capacitor # errors on the service manual, correct values, just different designators. The volume control is smooth, it has the balance in the center of the volume knob.

I just picked up a NAD 1240 preamp and a NAD 214 Power amp for $10 and I think it sounds as good as my Carver M500 and possibly better.
