The NAD C338 brings together all the elements of a high-end music system; sources music from the past and future, while providing a deep reserve of power that allows your speakers to reveal every nuance of musical detail.
This advanced amplifier includes many innovative technological advances developed by NAD over decades creating ultra-high performance sound components at affordable prices.
NAD is working to achieve an advanced product that includes an MM phono stage with precise RIAA equalization, high overdrive margins, extremely low noise, and innovative circuitry to suppress infrasonic noise present in all LPs, all without affecting response. in bass.
The line inputs serve all types of analog sources offering ideal impedances with ultra-low noise linear buffer amplifiers to prevent any sound degradation caused by inappropriate loading of the source device. Included separately is a headphone amplifier with low output impedance and a very high output voltage capability, enough to drive even studio monitor headphones with high impedances. Low-impedance line outputs for connecting subwoofers extend the versatility of this amplifier.
You can immediately connect to the NAD C338 via Bluetooth, allowing you to stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth compatible device.
The high-performance aptX codec is fully supported for CD-quality sound. Bluetooth can also be used to listen to other sources connected to the C 338 through wireless headphones, such as the Nad HP70. There is also a control App that allows your smartphone or tablet to control all the functions of your NAD.
The C 338 includes Wi-Fi and network streaming. It also allows access to Internet radio and can serve as a UPnP client for network streaming from a local NAS library.
NAD has developed better performing circuits based on switching power supplies and Class D power stages.
Although they have always been considered inferior to traditional topologies, Nad's advanced work in this area has created some of the best amplifiers regardless of the basic design principle. These new designs are highly linear across a wide bandwidth and provide consistent performance across all speaker loads, offering a dramatic improvement over previous models.
The power supply is capable of 160 watts continuous and over 300 watts instantaneous to allow for short duration musical transitions. It can work with any plug from 100 to 240 volts and provides continuous current to all stages of the Nad C 338.
This highly efficient power supply also provides near perfect voltage regulation across a wide range of conditions and offers a solid noise-free foundation for the amplification stages.
