NAD C 427 STEREO AM/FM TUNER
FM remains one of the most reliable and best sounding mediums for hassle-free music listening. NAD‚¬„s C 427 builds on thestrengths of previous NAD tuners by offering a quality of reception that is as good as, or better than, the quality of today‚¬„s broadcasts.We have carried forward our highly sensitive RF Front End for cleaner reception in fringe areas, plus noise is extremelylow across the audio spectrum. In line with NAD‚¬„s environmental policy, we have completely redesigned the power supply for improvedefficiency and ultra-low power consumption during standby while still allowing all remote activation and control interfaces.The C 427 can be easily integrated with sophisticated system controllers used in custom installation thanks to the rear panel IRInput, 12V trigger and RS-232 port. We also have one of the most intuitive user interfaces on the market, utilizing a 24-positionrotary encoder knob to more quickly tune stations or select preset stations. All functions are available via the included IR remotecontrol. Whether you are looking for excellent performance, ease-of-use, or the convenience of RDS, the C 427 offers all thesewith the value to high performance ratio for which NAD is so renowned.
Loads of Presets
With 40 presets available you can store all yourfavourite radio stations. You can program your presetsin any combination of AM and FM stations (for example,30 presets for FM and 10 for AM, or 25 for FM and 15for AM). To avoid having to scroll through 40 presets,the C 427 skips any that have not been programmed orleft empty, so you can quickly access all your favouritestations.
‚¬œAuto Search‚¬? automatically stops at the next strongradio signal it comes across and optimizes tuning,while weaker radio stations can be tuned into manually.Stations that are quiet in Mono but noisy in Stereo canbenefit from the ‚¬œBlend‚¬? feature that narrows stereoseparation and improves sound. ‚¬œFM Mute‚¬? eliminatesinter-station tuning noise and only allows strong andclear stations to emerge from the silent background.Although AM can never reach the quality of any FMtransmission, the C 427‚¬„s AM section retains excellentclarity together with lowest possible background noise.
Instead of littering the front panel with buttonsand features that are hardly ever used, the C 427concentrates on convenience in daily operation. TheRDS limits itself to the RDS PS and RT function, bothof which enhance ease of operation. The RDS PS(Program Service) will automatically indicate the nameof the radio station on the display, e.g., ‚¬œBBC R1‚¬?, so youwill always know exactly what station you are listeningto. With its four-line graphic display, you will see all theavailable information. Preset information is stored inthe C 427‚¬„s non-volatile memory, which means it willremember all of its preset information even if the unithas been unplugged for a prolonged amount of time.
Apart from its ease-of-use, the NAD C 427 also offersfeatures to get the maximum out of the airwaves. TheMOS-FET RF Front End design, together with highquality components and careful PCB layout, guaranteesexcellent sensitivity with low intermodulation distortionto provide quiet and musically satisfying performance.
