  • NAD has an enviable reputation for creating some of the best performing budget amplifiers of all time. But that's not all they're known for. The NAD C388 Integrated Stereo Amplifier delivers a massive 150 full-bandwidth-rated Watts to each of your stereo speakers for powerful, undistorted sound, even during your music's most demanding passages. But it also has a built-in DAC, high-quality phono pre-amp and dedicated headphone amp. What an amazing powerhouse.

    The NAD C388 is really the bigger brother to the C368. The main difference is nearly double the power output - 80-Watts to 150-Watts which is really useful if you have inefficient speakers. Like the C368, it offers superior performance with all the latest 21st century features and when considering what it can do and the power output, comes in at a reasonable price package and for many they will never need another amplifier until it dies. It is surprising how many seemingly advanced products in the market today often miss many of the most basic requirements for satisfying performance. Low noise circuits, precise volume control action, accurate channel balance, proper input and output impedance characteristics, high overload margins and stability with difficult speaker loads. NAD starts by getting these things precisely right and advances from there. The 'C388 certainly ties together all the critical elements of a top performing music system; music sources past and present, while providing a deep reservoir of power that allows even very inefficient speakers to reveal every nuance of musical detail. This advanced amplifier includes many cutting-edge technological breakthroughs developed by NAD over decades of creating affordable ultra-high performance audio components. Yes, you can add a NAD CD player or Turntable and some good interconnecting cables, the right speakers and you're in business to sit back and enjoy the pleasures of great music. But, with Bluesound now coming on-board (no pun intended) and surround sound losing some of its prominence, the C388 will provide a number of meaningful options via the MDC system.
