    I used to own an NC210-P.
    I originally thought I wanted the NC212, but when I listened to both, the 212 just didn't seem to have the focus and punch in the low end and mid-bass that I like (it might be great for certain types of music, but not all -- for my tastes anyway).
    I never played the 410, but I'm sure it's a nice combo.

    If you absolutely want a combo, it's a good choice.

    For similar money you can put together a better system.
    BBE BMax (or 2nd hand SansAmp RBI) preamp +
    QSC RMX850 +
    Avatar Neo 410.

    More power, better tone, more volume.
    Won't be quite as portable, but not bad.

    Another good 2nd hand preamp option would be a Yamaha bass preamp (PB-1?...or whatever the model # is) for less money.

    Avatar has some good specials on Ashdown heads as well (also less money for that system than the Nemesis NC410).

    Oddball;

    Are you talking about the combos or the Nemesis cabinets? I believe (coreect me if I'm wrong) that Nemesis is making separate cabinets as well as the combos.

    As far as the combos are concerned, I've played through the 4/10 combo in a music store and thought it sounded pretty darn good especially since it's all solid state. No experience with the cabinets.

    I currently own a Nemesis NC410P combo. It's a fine combo amp - one of the best you can find for its price range. But I like lo-freq's idea better: the QSC/RBI/Avatar NEO combination...

    In fact, maybe I should do that myself... :meh:

    I really like the Blake quote in your sig.
