I was contemplating this issue two weeks ago and decided on the NAD C325BEE. I bought it online for $299. It will be replaced by a new model soon. It costs about $120 more than the Trend, has multiple inputs, more power, is more versatile if you will ever put it in other systems, remote control, balance and tone controls. I could not compare the sound side-by-side, so I bought the NAD. It is a wonderful amp and I am very happy with it. The C315 costs $350 or almost double the Trends. Some prefer Class D to SS, but I got so much more functionality from the NAD. Good luck!
