Thread: Nagra HD Amps - Anyone have experience with these?

  1. #21
    It should be a month until I get the HDs. This is by far the biggest audio purchase I've ever made and the excitement outweighs the insanity of it. Its going to be a long wait...On another note, RIP Chris Cornell. He will always be one of my favorite artists with an unforgettable voice. I listened all night

    John,
    Sounds like your wife is very cool and I'm sure hoping mine is as blown away as you and yours. I'd love to come to Austin to hear your system and get a chance to meet face to face. I have a 7 month old and a 3 year old at home, so my travelling days are few and far between right now. I could make a day trip anytime, just let me know a day that works best for you and i'll make it happen.

    Dave

    Alex,
    Thanks for the update! Was Nagra showing the HD pre with the HD amps? I thought they may have a prototype there. Anyways, have fun!

    Do you know what is the output impedance of the HD's? I can not find it anywhere.

    The Nagra room doesn't have YG in it.

    Perhaps the YG room has Nagra in it?

    YG/Nagra is on the SME booth/room, I think it's E09. Also with HD amps. And you didn't have to be rude about it, BTW.

    I don't know...I'd email Nagra...if you go to their website a contact section...

    CORRECTION, it was in my owners manual. <90 m ohms
