The C 388 Hybrid Digital DAC-Amplifier is at the top of his class in the world of affordable reinforcement. An incredibly powerful amplifier, the C 388 uses NAD-Technologies such as Asymmetrical PowerDrive ™ to ensure that even the most demanding speakers can be driven to lifelike listening levels without dynamic compression. Thanks to the advanced preamp circuit, the C 388 gives little noise at all volume settings, so that you can listen to your music without distraction. Another technology that is available for the C 388 is the BluOS ™ module, a music management system that can stream your music library wirelessly via your Wi-Fi-home network.
Extensive power with unprecedented flexibility
The C 388 connects all critical elements of a best performing music system; Music sources from the past, the present and the future, in addition to an almost unlimited reservoir in which your speakers reveal every nuance of musical details. This advanced amplifier contains many groundbreaking technological breakthroughs, developed by NAD For decades of creating affordable, ultra-high performance audio components.
Get the basic principles well
It is surprising how much apparently advanced products on the market often miss many of the most basic requirements for meeting performance. NAD Starts to get just right by these things and continues from there. We have a mm Phono-Podium with accurate accurate Riaa equalization, high overload margins, extremely low noise and an innovative circuit to suppress infrasonic noise on all LPs -and all without influencing the bass response. Our line inputs can accommodate all types of analogue source components by offering ideal input impedance characteristics with linear ultra-low-noise buffer strengthens to prevent any sonic relegation. We have a separate headphone amplifier with a low output impedance and a very high output voltage - enough to even send a stereo headphone with high impedance. Line outputs with low impedance that can be connected to other amplifiers or subwoofers extend the versatility of this well -thought out amplifier.
Future -proof modular design
With this exclusive NAD-Function you can NAD-Awinder now or in the future with extra options and functions. The two available MDC slots are suitable for a variety of upgrade modules, including 4K video suitable for HDMI switching, extra digital inputs, extra analogue and Phono-inputs and one of the most advanced wireless hi-res Audio-Systems for several rooms, the BluOS ® music management system developed by Bluesound. BluOS Makes a connection with your network and is controlled via a smartphone, tablet or desktop device to manage your music collection and connect to a growing list of high-quality streaming music services.
Connected and Smart
Connect directly via Bluetooth to the C 388 ® APTX ® to enable you to stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth device with real CD quality sound. Bluetooth can also be used to listen to other sources connected to the C 388 via a wireless headphone such as its own HP70 of NAD. There is also a control app with which your mobile devices can operate all functions of your C 388. Add the optional BluOS-Module to gain access to your local network and hi-res via Wi-Fi or a wired Ethernet connection Audio-streaming. The BluOS-Module also makes the C 388 a single zone streamer in a complete multi-room wireless music system that is completely compatible with BluOS Enabled music systems and wireless speakers.
NAD has left the old-fashioned energy-consuming linear power supplies and class AB exit stairs that waste almost half of the energy used and produce heat instead of sound. Instead, we have developed even better performing circuits based on switching power supplies and class D output stairs. Once thought that it is inferior to traditional topologies, NADThe advanced work in this area created some of the best performing amplifiers, regardless of the basic design. These new designs are very linear about a broad bandwidth and ensure consistent performance in all speaker taxes, which results in a dramatic advantage over previous models.
The food is capable of 150 watts continuously and more than 250 Watt immediately to make short -lived musical transients possible. It can work with any AC-Net voltage from 100 to 240 volts and delivers pure direct current for all different stages of the C 388. This extremely efficient food also offers an almost perfect control of the voltage over a wide range of conditions and ensures a sturdy Sound - free basis for the reinforcing phases.
The C 388 uses a modified version of the proven Hypex UCD output strap, which works in a fully balanced bridge configuration. This creates an enormous force with almost immeasurable distortion and noise in the audible range. Every detail of this design is carefully planned and perfectly executed to produce the last drop of performance.
