    NAD  C 720BEE  [1st unit]  stereo  receiver - charcoal grey :

   The Absolute Sound Review [abridged] :
   It’s awfully easy to get spoiled in this industry. Gear that I could not possibly afford is dropped at my door, and for a brief window of time I live under the illusion that my champagne-and-caviar dreams have materialized
   The 720BEE is heir to NAD’s classic 7020 receiver (and the more recent C740)
   Its 50Wpc amplifier section is based on the company’s C320BEE integrated amp, but here equipped with an RDS AM/FM tuner and a secondzone output that allows music to be exported to speakers in another room (separate amplifier required)
   The absence of the video functionality of the Rotel RX-1052 and the iPod jack and USB connectivity of the Outlaw RR 2150 may suggest that the C720BEE is strictly old school
   But NAD compensates for these omissions with a hefty toroidal transformer, defeatable tone controls, remote control, and subwoofer output — a thoughtful nod to the expanding sub/sat marketplace
   The only misstep is the lack of a volume-readout on the front-panel display

   When partnered with a high-performance speaker of medium sensitivity, like the Proac Studio 140 (review to come), the NAD continues its tradition of midrange neutrality and resolution, and freedom from noise and gritty treble artifacts
   It reveals more inner details and microdynamics than it has a right to at this level
   I’m a big fan of radio, so a tuner’s sonics had better be able to shoulder the weight. The C720BEE performed strongly, reproducing orchestras with a dimensionality and dynamism that were arresting
   The NAD can’t match the sensitivity and dynamic explosiveness of $1000-plus stand-alone FM tuners like Magnum Dynalab’s MD-90 or 106T, but it had good adjacent-channel separation and pulled in even some of my local low-power favorites strongly
   The NAD C720BEE validates a no-nonsense philosophy that rejects the “bells and whistles” philosophy of audio by letting its musicality do all the talking
