New Acoustic Dimensions is home to a multitude of tech audio products ranging from turntables to record players. With amplifiers being the staple of the NAD brand, the Canada-based company is back with three modern and completely redesigned integrated amplifiers to redefine the category. Meet the New Classic Series with NAD C388 Hybrid Digital Amplifiers and more.
New Release NAD C388 Hybrid Digital Amplifier and More
The NAD C388 Hybrid Digital Amplifier runs at 150 Watts (350w dynamic @4 Ohms) with a modern display. It is compatible with BlueSound devices via NAD’s standard MDC BluOS upgrade module, the C388 will be the flagship of the new classic series retailing at the suggested market price of $1599.00. It’ll begin shipping at the end of September.
The flagship product is followed by NAD C368, a sister product with same feature set but with 80 watts x 2 (240w dynamic @4 Ohms). The suggested retail value is a bit lower at $899. The 368 will begin shipping at the end of September.
Following will be the baby sis of amplifiers the NAD C338. It is constructed like the C338 but with 50 watts per channel (150w dynamic @4 Ohms) and the incredible ability to support built-in streaming via Google Cast and other platforms. The C338 will ship in October.
For those who are stuck in the early 2000’s NAD has your back. They are also releasing a CD player with a C568 with a Wolfson DAC and high-speed OP amp. I’m assuming this will probably be the best player you’ve ever owned. It’ll be available at the end of September for $649.
The upgrades also continue with two new additions to NAD’s Master Series – the NAD M32 Direct Digital Amplifier and the NAD M50.2 BluOs Network Player. The M32 amp uses 150 watts per channel of power and will retail for $3999 and ships in late October. The M50.2 plays, streams, rips, and audio. The Network Player can handle real-time playback of CD’s with automatic ripping to a 4TB music storage drive. It will also be available in October for $3999. Looking for other amplifiers?
