The NAD reliability question-the good and the bad

A friend owned a hi-fi shop that sold NAD and I have owned a number of their products including the C162 pre at present. The problem- previously-but much less often now-NAD seemed to be with a specific model in their line and its reliability. This could often effect a large proportion of that particular model until-usually-a replacement model took its place. The rest of the line's reliabilty , at the same time, was, at least , on an industry standard. This cycle seemed to have happended a number of times.
The good news is this seems to be mostly in the past. Having owned numerous high end brands, and being exposed to others at my frieds store, I always considered NAD-sound wise- an outstanding value -unless you prefer an upfront,slightly bright sound which is typical of other components in their price range.
Reliability in the high end is not a sure thing regardless of price. Some very expensive components, reliability wise, are no better than NAD.
