NAD - Berg Forte/Ref 322

Post by benhill1982 » 26 Jul 2018, 20:34

Well, I took the plunge and jumped on George’s Berg deal. In short - amazing. Beautiful, highly articulated and punchy tone, with one of the most musical compressors I’ve heard. Extremely happy with it. Big shout out to George for great customer service and products once again!

Nice one!
Very curious about this little amp. Have you had a chance to give it run with a drummer yet?

Not yet, but from what I’ve heard, I reckon it will cut through brilliantly.

I have a B-Amp HD112/210 set up which is essentially the same thing and play with a very heavy hitting rock drummer and this rig has no problems coping with that.

The amazing thing is the punch and clarity regardless of volume - so musical and consistent. I think you’d be looking at structural damage before you exceeded the limits of it!

No, but it does seem to have a lot more low mid thickness to it than the CN210 I had.
