NAD C 316 BEE STEREO INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER
Our scene-stealing C 315BEE, an award-winning design that exceeded all expectations, has given rise to the C 316BEE Integrated Amplifier. The C 316BEE promises improved power efficiency, a healthy dose of ‚¬˜green‚¬„ attributes, and serious musical performance. The C 316BEE offers entry-level affordability and for many there will never be a need for another amplifier. With class-leading specifications for noise, distortion, power, stereo separation and volume control tracking, the C 316BEE sets new benchmarks for performance, both measured and audible. The sonic result is a relaxed and inviting sound that digs out the subtle details in your favourite recordings and presents them across a panoramic stereo sound stage.
> Innovative Twist on Proven Technology
Proprietary PowerDriveTM Circuit offers a remarkable combination of high current drive needed for complex loudspeaker loads combined with high levels of undistorted dynamic power. Bjørn Erik dvardsen, our Director of Advanced Development, developed a simplified version of PowerDrive for the C 316BEE.
Thanks to its innovative technology, standby power consumption is less than 1 watt. The C 316BEE uses lead-free silver solder and is constructed free of hazardous materials.
True to our enviable reputation for creating some of the best performing budget amplifiers of all time, the C 316BEE delivers huge performance without the huge price tag.
> Dynamic Power Reserves
Continuous power is a conservative 40 watts and dynamic power, which is more important for music listening, is remarkably more than 100 watts! Far more usable power on tap than other amps at this price point.
> Keeping it Simple
The C 316BEE has everything necessary for musical enjoyment, yet it is refreshingly limited to the essentials:six inputs, one set of speakers, a headphone jack and full function remote control.
> Impressive Capacity
While the C 316BEE embodies simplicity, it is far from a ‚¬˜stripped down‚¬„ product. It is fully equipped to be the control centre for a high performance music system.
