NAD's classic series never seems to win any style awards. Apart from a few colour changes, the product has looked the same for over a decade(and really similar for the past thirty years...). However, underneath the unremarkable fascia is a remarkable amplifier. Packing in 150 watts a side, this amp will satisfy even the hungriest of loudspeakers. Its not all about the power through, and this amp will excite and impress with detail and dynamics. Top it all off with an optional modular phono stage and you've got an amp worthy of an audition.
"The C 375BEE shares many of the features and refinements of NAD’s M3 Integrated Amplifier from its high-end Masters Series, and incorporates an updated version of NAD’s “building block” concept to make the addition of the PP375 phono module and other affordable future upgrades possible.
Refinements shared with the highly acclaimed M3 Amplifier include an application in the output stage of the innovative, patented Distortion Canceling Circuit by NAD Director of Advanced Development Bjorn Erik Edvardsen, and Edvardsen’s BEE Clamp in the power supply. An improved tone control circuit and PCB layout reduce distortion and noise to unprecedented levels. Combined, the C 375BEE ‘s many improvements enhance performance to a degree that must be heard to be fully appreciated.
The C 375BEE also benefits from NAD’s proprietary PowerDrive™ circuit topology, which allows maximum performance under virtually any circumstance and with any speaker. PowerDrive automatically senses a speaker’s impedance characteristics and adjusts its power settings for the specific load. PowerDrive enables the C 375BEE to deal easily with difficult speaker loads, providing high dynamic power and low impedance drive capability in an affordable package. In addition, NAD’s switchable Soft Clipping™ circuit significantly reduces the risk
of damage to loudspeakers from prolonged operation at high power.
Such refinements give the C 375BEE the lowest levels of distortion and noise available in its price class, making its performance comparable to far more expensive products. Noise and distortion mask the fine details of musical recordings, replacing musical texture and dimension with non-musical artifacts — which is why NAD has spent 35 years perfecting its designs to achieve the lowest distortion and highest power in their price class."
