SOLD: FS: Relist NAD CI 940 Amplifier

Recommended Posts

Item Condition: 10/10
Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost.
Suburb or Town: Canberra
State: Australian Capital Territory
Payment Method: Cash, EFT
Reason for selling: Upgraded and no longer require

It was purchased December 2018, so it is a little over a year old now. Still plenty of Warranty left on it. Has not had much use it was driving 4 ATMOS speakers. Upgraded my receiver so no longer require the power amp.

 

It is in perfect condition, coming from a smoke free home. No scratches or dents to be seen.

 

Comes with all original paperwork.

 

Unfortunately a demo is not available in the current virus circumstances. I can however provide a video of fully functioning amp.

 

The CI 940 has 4 channels of clean low distortion power set up in a 2 stereo zone configuration. Boasting 35 watts of continuous power per channel, the CI 940 is designed to drive low impedance speakers and long wire runs. Vanishingly low distortion and near absence of noise allow the music to emerge from a ‘black’ background that enhances stereo perspective and allows the subtle details of the music to be heard clearly.

 

 

  • Four channels of clean, low distortion power set up in two stereo zone configuration
  • 35W x 4 @ 8 Ohms/4 Ohms
  • 70W x 2 @ 8 Ohms in Bridge Mode

      Item: NAD M10 Streaming Amplifier
      Price Range: 2000-2500 depending on condition, warranty etc
      Item Condition: Used
      Extra Info: Looking for an intergreated amp with DAC and Bluetooth/Airplay in-built to pair with Dynaudio Excite X44, this all-in-one streamer really catched my eyes. If you have anything similar to M10 in this price range please also feel free to comment or PM.

      Just putting this thread up as promised to @DavidDoerfer who kindly paid forward some free gear a few weeks ago.
      I received this amplifier for free from David. A NAD 3155 a bit of research shows they were built in 1985 and this one has been particularly well looked after. Nad specs. I wish all amps had proper specs like this (not many do anymore) instead of inflated power figures at high distortion figures this one shows both chanels driven from 20-20khz with no more than the rated distortion (which is nice and low). 

       
      I decided to not even power this amp up and just went into replacing a few capacitors and checking all of them with my meter. Mind you I would have expected this to have worked since most caps were well within spec. The board looked in good condition with what seemed to be original transistors as well.
       

       


       
       

       
       
      You will notice that all the electrolytic capacitors on each board have their negative side all facing the same direction. Makes it easy to know which way to place the caps when soldering. (nice engineering thought).
       

       

       
       
      I always found the heatsinks in these Nads interesting. It looks like they used an L piece of extruded aluminium and then get some sharp fins to scrape down the edges to create the fins for the heatsink as evident by the curly ends of the fins.
       

       
      I haven't checked, but I think these are original transistors.
       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      The caps I replaced. Note that 95% of these were still within spec but I replaced them anyway with new ones. I didn't replace the Power supply caps but they were well within spec and reused them.
       

       
       
      I connect a bulb tester (have not got a variac). the bulb is connected in series with the 240v mains and the amp pluged in afterwards. When powering up the bulbs glows bright briefly (less than a few tenths of a second) before dimming down to barely just on. If it continues to glow brightly then there is something wrong with the amp blown transistor or what not that needs to be fault rectified. This amp was perfectly fine.
       

       
       
      The bigger multimeter not connected here was used to show the dc offset on both chanels which was un der 0.5mV for both channels. The 2 smaller multimeters show the standby (quiescent) current through the power transistors. The manual states 20 - 25mV setting. Only a very minor tweak was needed for one channel once warmed up. It was still passable before adjusting though.
       

       
       
      Put some sine wave through. Used a 7.3ohm resistor as load and just before clipping.
       

       
      That was 36.8v peak...so   for those who like math.   36.8 / root2 = 26v rms
      V = IR  so Current = 26/ 7.3  (7.3 ohm load resistors)   = 3.56 A
      Power = VI   = 26 x 3.56  = 92Watts into the single channel being tested.
       

       
      Running both channels at the same time produced 33.2V Peak so it has around 3V droop in supply voltage with both channels used as can be expected.
      This equates to 75W per channel both channels flat out. This actually exceeded the NAD spec sheet although I didn't have any distortion meter on their so I could have been over driving it slighly even though the scope showed no flat spotting of the peaks of signal.
       
       
      Finally some pics of the amp playing through some speakers. The amp still sounds great and hopefully has another good 20 years of life left in it.
       

       

       

       
      Can't tell this is a diy household at all can we.
       
      Cheers Simon

       Bought new from Duratone Hifi more than one year ago, so no more warranty. Just tried in few hours and then put it back in the box since then because I preferred open back headphones as Hifiman. Even not burn in yet. All accessories included as in pictures but not the headphone hanger. Price is included shipping in Oz.
