NAD has just released two new stereo amplifiers to get your party going. Meet NAD C 268 Stereo Power Amplifier and NAD C 328 Integrated Amplifier.
New NAD C 268 Stereo Power and NAD C 328 Stereo Integrated Amplifier
NAD C 268 Stereo Power Amplifier
This amplifier has been designed by NAD to be used in a traditional setup with a preamplifier, for biamping loudspeakers or as a slave amp. The interior contains a HybridDigital amplifier “with deep reservoirs of power” that yield a massive output of power while keeping harmonic distortion at an all-time low. As NAD explains, this “powerhouse is even bridgeable, transforming its ample output from 80W X 2 to a remarkable 300 watts.” The power supply is actually capable of nearly 200 watts continuously and over 500 watts instantaneously. The Asymmetrical PowerDrive power drive allows for the amplifier to use “every last watt available,” according to NAD. Along with its vast reserves of dynamic power available the amplifier produces musical transients without distortion or compression. NAD C 268 Stereo Power Amplifier is built with balanced and single-ended line inputs, variable input level control, line output for daisy chaining, auto-turn-on with selectable threshold, 12V trigger in/outs, as well as, a ground lug that can be useful for eliminating ground loops and noise in complex multi-unit systems.
NAD C 268 Stereo Power Amplifier will cost $799 and expected to hit retailers late October.
NAD C 328 Stereo Integrated Amplifier
For those who listen to music from across the ages, past and present, this amplifier was created for you. Like the C 268, the C 328 is also built with a HybridDigital Amplifier providing 50W x 2 Continuous Power into 8 or 4 Ohms. This delivers yet another massive output of power with a virtually nill measure of distortion. What makes this amplifier truly ideal for the modern-day audiophile is the accessibility of Bluetooth so users can seamlessly stream their favorite tunes from a smart device. The C 328 is also built with inputs for MM Phono, analog line in, SPDIF coax and optical, subwoofer output, and a dedicated headphone amplifier. The amp also features Bass EQ and IR remote controls.
NAD C 328 Stereo Integrated Amplifier will cost $549 and hit retailers in November.
