I got a refurbed NAD C715 about 8 years ago to replace an NAD L-40 CD Receiver I gave to a friend. It's quite unlike most NAD products in that it's a highly integrated unit that combines a CD player, a USB recorder/player, an AM/FM tuner, a preamp, and a 25 WPC amplifier (6 ohm load), all rolled up into a half-wide chassis.

It has additional inputs for Aux, Tape play / record, Video, and an external music player via a front panel 1/8 inch stereo jack.

There's a single subwoofer output that starts to roll off at 100Hz, is 12dB down at 1KHz, and 56dB down at 10KHz. The subwoofer frequency response make it quite easy to make a respectable 2.1 satelite / subwoofer system.

This unit uses a lot of integrated circuits, including the power amplifier section in order to keep costs down and improve reliability.

I paired it up to a Cambridge Audio 540P phone preamp and a Thorens TD 318 with a Nagaoka MP200 cartridge to play LP's through the Aux input.

The Pro's ... It has lots of input's, the AM/FM tuner is phenominally good, both in sensitivity and selectivity, and the remote control handles almost everything (sans the tone/balance controls and opening/closing the CD draw). The USB recorder supports 192K MP3, and 128K WMA formats, and is better than I expected, both in sound quality and ease of use via the remote control. It also has a timer feature to record from the tuner when you're not at home.

The con's ... The built in CD player sounds a bit dark when compared to my vinyl setup, as well as a separate CD player I had on hand (Teac PD301), and although 25 WPC is nothing to sneeze at, it is a bit anemic in the power department (especially if you try driving 4 ohm speakers).

These drawbacks subtract 2 points out of 10, yielding a score of 8.

That said, this particular NAD 715 has been completely reliable, something NAD has stuggled with in some of its other products.

In closing, this model is no longer available new, but if you can find one on the second hand market, it's definitely worth considering.
