Does the 740C have a digital input ?I recall a discussion with Asit on CA 740C vs. 840C & he said apart from the 840C offering Balanced Outputs, they are more or less very similar, 740C at abt the 40k mark. Hence he went for that as he didnt require balanced outputs.
I too agree with you about NAD and i am looking to buy CA 840C Up sampling. I have received the quotes from one of the dealer and i am working on it.He has given me a offer of 55K.
and people who want to spend more do not talk about or show any interest in 740c/840c probably because of the budget name (I do not see anybody even trying to audition these). Sorry if I have offended anybody by saying this.
