This power amp is a bit over a year old. It was ordered with two of the optional upgrades: silver internal wiring and switchable balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA inputs. It has the the more expensive Sonic Imagery op amps.. Boxed virtually as new. Can be seen and heard and collected in Edinburgh, or will post - I have the original box, instructions, etc. Apart from what they call the Rev D buffer boards, this year's iteration of the amp seems very similar. This cost almost £1500, all in. £1000 delivered.
For those who don't know the Nord range, this information is from the Nord website:
