C326BEE - NAD Stereo Integrated

The new C326BEE Integrated Amplifier rests squarely between NAD’s most
affordable and most powerful models. In particular, it boasts the very high
dynamic power and low impedance drive capability provided by NAD’s
proprietary PowerDrive™ technology, which enables it to accurately control
even speakers that are difficult to drive while sounding musical, detailed,
coherent and relaxed.

The C326BEE boastsmany upgrades and refinements to its highly acclaimed predecessor, the
C325BEE. These include application of NAD Director of Advanced Development Bjorn Erik
Edvardsen’s innovative and patented Distortion Canceling Circuit in the output
stage and his BEE Clamp in the power supply. An improved tone control circuit
and PCB layout have reduced distortion and noise to unprecedented levels, and
NAD’s switchable Soft Clipping™ circuit significantly reduces the risk of
speaker damage from prolonged operation at high power.

The C 326BEE ‘s numerous refinements enhance performance to a degree that
must be heard to be fully appreciated. They also give the C 326BEE the lowest
levels of distortion and noise in its price class, making its performance
comparable to far more costly products. Noise and distortion mask the fine
details of musical recordings, replacing musical texture and dimension with nonmusical
artifacts — which is why NAD has spent 35 years perfecting its designs
to achieve the lowest distortion and highest power in their price class.
