The Europas deserve (obviously you've found that out) more than any NAD is capable of. I have no experience with the Consonance, but I, presently, own an integrated NAD (320BSEE) for my home video system.

Agree with both of you. This speaker appeals to such a broad range of budgets that I think a lot of people (myself included) attempt to use more budget-minded amplification. In other words, I'd say there are far fewer people trying the c370 with a pair of Revel M20's or SF Concertos.
This isn't to knock NAD, I should note that the amplifier section of that thing is a BEAST. But it does not do excellent monitors like the Europas, M20's, SF, etc any justice whatsoever.
