Introduction to the NAD C 368. Making the Right Choices

We never compromise on the most crucial aspects. From low-noise circuits to precise volume control, channel balance, correct input and output impedance characteristics, we, at NAD, do everything we can to get these things absolutely right. We also include an MM Phono stage with precisely accurate RIAA equalization, robust overload margins, extremely low noise, and an innovative circuit to eliminate infrasonic noise present on all LPs – all without affecting bass response. Our line inputs can accommodate all kinds of analog sources, providing ideal input impedance characteristics with ultra-low noise linear buffer amplifiers to avoid any sonic degradation. We include a headphone amplifier with low output impedance and very high voltage capability – enough to drive even high-impedance studio monitor headphones. Low-impedance line outputs that can connect to subwoofers extend the versatility of this thoughtfully designed amplifier.

Thinking Ahead

Modular Design Construction (MDC) allows you to customize your NAD amplifier with additional features and functionalities, now or in the future. The two available MDC slots can accommodate a variety of upgrade modules, including 4K-capable HDMI switching, additional Digital Inputs, additional Analog and Phono Inputs, and one of the most advanced Hi-Res Audio multi-room wireless systems available, the BluOS music management system developed by Bluesound. BluOS connects to your network and is controlled via smartphone, tablet, or desktop to manage your music collection and connect to a growing list of high-quality music streaming services.

Instant Connection

You can instantly connect to the C 368 with Bluetooth® aptX®, allowing you to wirelessly stream music from any Bluetooth-enabled device. Bluetooth can also be used to listen to other sources connected to the C 368 via wireless headphones. There is also a control app to manage all the functions of your C 368. Adding the optional BluOS Module provides access to your local network via Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet connection and adds Hi-Res Audio streaming. The BluOS module also turns the C 368 into a single-zone streamer in a fully compatible wireless music system with BluOS-enabled music systems and wireless speakers.

Sophisticated Power

In recent years, NAD has moved away from old linear power supplies and class AB output stages that waste energy and developed more efficient circuits based on switch-mode power supplies and class D output stages. Once thought to be inferior to traditional topologies, NAD’s advanced work in this area has created some of the most powerful amplifiers, regardless of the basic design principle. These new models are highly linear across a wide bandwidth and provide consistent performance into all speaker loads, giving a dramatic improvement over previous models.

Moreover, the power supply is capable of 80 watts continuously and over 120 watts instantaneously to allow for short-term power peaks. It can operate with any AC mains voltage from 100 to 240 volts and provides clean DC power to all the different stages of the C 368. This highly efficient supply also provides near-perfect voltage regulation across a wide range of conditions and offers a solid, noise-free foundation for the amplifier stages.

The C 368 uses a custom version of the proven. This allows for massive power with almost immeasurable distortion and noise in the audible range. Every detail of this design has been carefully planned and perfectly executed to produce every drop of performance.c368_rear_drawing-01
