Ontario - NAD is expanding its selection of DAC-equipped integrated amplifiers with the
shipment of the $1,600-suggested C 375DAC and $900 C 356DAC.

two DAC/amps are
rated at 2x80 watts RMS and 2x150 watts,
respectively, and
join the $2,600-suggested C 390DD DAC/amplifier, a 2x150-watt integrated
amp with 35-bit/844kHz
up-sampling DAC.

The new components also join the $800 C 356BEE and $1,500
C 375BEE integrated
amplifiers, which accept a modular, dealer-installable $250 Modular Design Construction (MDC) DAC to connect to music streamers
and computers.

Both new DAC/amps are actually the C 356BEE and C
375BEE integrated amps shipped with preinstalled MDC DAC and priced as a bundle
to offer more value, a spokesman said.

Both feature the MDC architecture to allow for
future upgrades, and the C 375DAC features two MDC slots, while the other
features one slot. The 375's second slot allows for the addition of such
upgrades as a phono preamp.

of the integrated amps feature proprietary fully digital PowerDrive amplifier
technology, which directly
accepts a digital PCM signal, uses pulse width modulation (PWM) to amplify the
signal, and incorporates a closed-loop direct digital feedback technology to
deliver better-than-Class-A performance at all output levels with high
efficiency, the company said.
