Reviewers from hifichoice have found the following***:
Weighing 24kg, the bulk of the power amplifier is the main issue and you don’t want to be moving it around if you can help it. Set up is easy enough, providing you take things slowly and methodically. The NQ/W offers both impressive amounts of detail, as well as the vital ability to string it all together in a musically coherent way.
