    OH YES!!!!!! I have heard of them, installed a few back in the day!!!!!! The XTR 100 and 200 were world class amps, musically accurate, Powerful and the best of the best. although had a few issues with the balanced line inputs on a few of them (was an amp problem) the NT's you are reffering to?I dont seem to recall the NT 100 or 200......description please?

    If I could get hold of an XTR amp, i would give caddys and anz left nuts for it!!! AWESOME AMPS!!!!!!

    Just wanted to know what you guys thought of them. Im pretty much done buying amps, so I thought. I will be probably be picking up both a Xtreme 100 and 200. I have two XTR 475's, one HCCA 2100, one XTR 2250 Beast, one HCCA 250, and one XTR 2150. I was gonna call it good for now but It sounds like I better not pass on the oppurtunity to pick these up.

    well. i goota say, if you can get a hold of them DO SO! Dont know what yall are doing with all that AWESOME Orion power, but if its like collecting guns or high end cars, you wont go wrong.. A few of the finest sytems i have ever done were using the XTR amps. Absolutley flawless in the reproduction of music, the amps were not even their if you know what i mean.. Now, whats it gunna take to get you to donate all them there amps to me!!!!!!!

    I am the owner of the Orion XTR-100 and XTR-200 that Joe was considering purchasing and certainly agree they are top notch amplifier's "The best of the best." They are superior to the XTR-475, XTR-2150, and even the stunning 24kt GSX-300 that I was using prior to acquiring them.

    The Orion NT100 and NT200 were the predecessor's to the XTR's. Same PCB's just a purple/black anodizing to the heatsink versus the red/black. The specifications are identical according to the user manuals.

    I am feeding them signal via the 5 pin DIN inputs from an Alpine CDA-7949 coupled to the PRA-H400 outboard DAC and the sound is nothing short of stunning. I am waiting for my Alpine CDA-7998 to come back from servicing. When it starting acting up I was disgusted with the whole setup and was going to sell it all off. Good thing no one came up with the cash because I most likely would have regretted it.

    I have also used the HiFonics Series VIII Isis and Ulysses and find the Orion amps superior to them.

    Well value depends on operating condition, whether or not they have been repaired in the past, and the overall cosmetic condition of the amplifiers. On average anywhere from $300 to $600 a piece. The higher end being perfect examples with original cartons and user manuals. Sorry for the delayed reply I do not visit the site much anymore.
