The Absolute Sound, 2010 Budget Component of the Year: NAD C326BEE.
Goodsound: ...the C 326BEE integrated amplifier supports NADâ€²s reputation for creating affordable yet high-quality hi-fi components, excellent sound quality at a reasonable price.
What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision: ... as the heart of a budget set-up, the NAD C326BEE delivers such an enjoyably flowing, supple and dynamic performance that we don't hesitate to give it five stars.
The Absolute Sound, editors 2011 Choice Awards: Integrated Amplifiers Under $1000 âˆ’ NAD C326BEE.
The NAD C 320 series of amplifiers have always punched far above their modest weight. Combining the highest levels of audio engineering with an extensive feature list, and more than adequate power for all but the most ambitious systems, the C 326BEE keeps the concept of affordable hi-end alive and well. With the very high dynamic power and low impedance drive capability of NAD's proprietary PowerDriveâ„¢ circuit, the C 326BEE is able to accurately control even difficult to drive loudspeakers while sounding musical, detailed, coherent and relaxed.
The C 326BEE is the latest in NAD's range of affordably priced, yet very high performance Stereo Integrated Amplifiers. Neatly slotted in between our most affordable C 315BEE and more powerful C 355BEE, the C 326BEE boasts many upgrades and refinements taken directly from the highly acclaimed NAD Masters Series M3 Amplifier. These include application of BjÃ¸rn Erik Edvardsen's innovative and patented Distortion Canceling Circuit in the output stage and BEE Clamp in the power supply. An improved tone control circuit and revised PCB layout has reduced distortion and noise to unprecedented levels. Taken together, these improvements mark a sharp upturn in performance that must be heard to be fully appreciated!
