Any experience with NAD M33?

Kind of a long shot here since it's only been available for about a month, but I was curious if anyone can share their experience with the new NAD M33 integrated amp/streamer? I currently use the NAD M10 which is similar in features but the M33 has a more powerful state-of-the-art power amp. I also like the look of the M33 a little better. My speakers are Revel Performa F208 - moderate sensitivity at about 88.9dB(B)/2.83V/m. Doesn't seem like the I get any clipping with the M10 so the extra power may not really be necessary.

M33 JUST dropped replacing the M32. I was looking at them and I really want to try one. I would also be interested in your thoughts on the M10 as it's on my list to try in my systems.

If you upgrade to the M33 I could be interested in purchasing your M10.

The M10 is very good in most respects. I absolutely love the Dirac Live and the amp seems to have plenty of clean power for my setup. I stream to it via Roon with very few issues. Also use the analog inputs for vinyl and SACD and they are both very good.

Its built-in wifi antenna is very weak so I use a wifi adapter plugged into the ethernet port. I've wondered if that is a function of its small form factor - just trying to squeeze too many things into one small box. Maybe a higher powered wifi antenna would have created too much noise? I believe the M33 uses one of those screw on external antennas.

I'm hoping that the NAD dealer that's about 40 miles away from me puts one on display soon so I can see/hear it first-hand.

I'll be interested to see what you think if you get a demo. My girlfriend's sister works for a not-to-be-named-so-I-don't-get-her-in-trouble dealer and can provide me with a VERY good deal on NAD gear... so that helps. I am also, all-in on the BlueOS ecosystem with my 2 Node2i's... so I like that aspect of them as well.
