Strange question perhaps but as I have both available I am wondering if anyone has compared these. I have an Olive nac 82, a classic Hicap Dr and a CB Nap140 ‘spare’ as well as the xs2. I would like to sell one of the power amps so which one to keep? ( XS2 would be used with the Hicap as just a power amp).
Why don’t you compare them?
Views of others are of limited value surely?
Indeed I shall.
If anyone is interested I find the XS2 a little too bright compared to the 140CB.
(Removed all the misunderstandings)
I’ve probably misunderstood, you mean 82/hicap/xs2 power amp “in”?
Yes,82/hicap/xs2 power amp.
Trade xs2 and 140 for an olive 250?
I’d think 140 over the xs2.
