NAD's Most Versatile Amplifier Ever with Chromecast built-in and Hybrid Digital Technology
Introducing the NAD C338
Getting the Basics Right
Built with NAD’s renowned music-first approach to audio architecture and amp design, the C 338 is equipped with the most advanced components commonly found in NAD’s class-leading line of amplifiers. Always starting with the details you can hear and advancing from there, NAD develops low-noise circuitry with the precision and stability to deliver incredible, near-zero distortion sound for the most difficult speakers.
Hybrid Digital™ Amp Technology
The search for a high-performance Class D solution led NAD to Hybrid Digital™, an innovative amplifier technology that uses a variable modulation frequency to bring out the life-like qualities of music, while reducing distortion under every operating condition. This highly optimized design gives phenomenal performance to the C 338 amplifier, both measured and subjective.
Efficient Class D Power
NAD has worked tirelessly to create the best performing Class D amplifiers that are energy efficient and produce beautiful sound—not heat—regardless of basic design principles. Using advanced measurements and data, NAD developed the C 338’s highly efficient power supply with a customised Hypex® UCD output stage to pump out 160 watts continuously and over 300 watts instantaneously to meet the demands of the most dynamic music. This new design is very linear over a wide bandwidth and provides consistent, noise-free performance for the amplifying stages with near perfect regulation of voltage.
Always Ready for Streaming
The C 338 has Chromecast built-in so you can cast music, tunes, podcasts, and playlists from your favourite apps on your phone, tablet or laptop to your stereo system. Plus, with Bluetooth® integrated and its added flexibility, your music streaming possibilities are truly limitless with the C 338.
Built-in Phono Stage for Vinyl Listening
Connect a turntable to the C 338 with its built-in phono preamp that applies the perfect amplification to your vinyl collection. Using a MM phono stage and an innovative low-noise circuit path, the C 338 can reproduce the warmth of LPs with accurate RIAA equalization and control the infrasonic noise that is in all recordings, without ever affecting the bass response.
With a wide array of connections, including a separate headphone amplifier that can drive high-impedance studio monitor headphones, the C 338 is ready for any type of listening. Line inputs can accommodate all kinds of analogue source components, offering ideal input impedance with linear ultra-low noise buffer amplifiers to preserve the musicality of recordings. Also connect a subwoofer with low impedance line outputs and extend the versatility of this budget-friendly, do-it-all amplifier.
Either placed on shelves or on stands, The new Antigua MC170 impress with their easy sonic integration and musical versatility. The three-way speaker is fitted with a new coaxial twoway driver, for a wide dispersion and uncompressed sound reproduction, homogeneous in every direction
The new two-way midrange/tweeter of the MCl 70 range is a development of the unit responsible for the continuous success of the Cabasse Eole coaxial satellite. lt offers a faithful reproduction of timbres and provides a soundstage with unrivaled realism and depth in its price segment, for both stereo and multichannel use.
The specific shape of the 17cm (6.7in) driver unit was specifically designed by Cabasse for maximum mechanical rigidity and low frequency use, which results in a deeper bass without coloration. The voice coil mounted on Kapton is perfectly ventilated: high power handling and its acceleration abilities are outstanding.
The Cabasse measuring protocol in the anechoic chamber takes into account measurements on the listening axis and at 360° a round the speaker for perfect control of the directivity and global power output in keeping with the Cabasse HDSE principle (Homogeneous Distribution of the Sonic Energy). Direct and reflected sounds are homogeneous, the sound stage wide and stable.
