C375BEEG - NAD Integrated Amplifier

The C 375BEE shares many of the features and refinements of NAD’s M3
Integrated Amplifier from its high-end Masters Series, and incorporates an
updated version of NAD’s “building block” concept to make the addition of the
PP375 phono module and other affordable future upgrades possible.

Refinements shared with the highly acclaimed M3 Amplifier include an
application in the output stage of the innovative, patented Distortion Canceling
Circuit by NAD Director of Advanced Development Bjorn Erik Edvardsen, and
Edvardsen’s BEE Clamp in the power supply. An improved tone control circuit
and PCB layout reduce distortion and noise to unprecedented levels. Combined,
the C 375BEE ‘s many improvements enhance performance to a degree that must
be heard to be fully appreciated.

The C 375BEE also benefits from NAD’s proprietary PowerDrive™ circuit
topology, which allows maximum performance under virtually any circumstance
and with any speaker. PowerDrive automatically senses a speaker’s impedance
characteristics and adjusts its power settings for the specific load. PowerDrive
enables the C 375BEE to deal easily with difficult speaker loads, providing high
dynamic power and low impedance drive capability in an affordable package. In
addition, NAD’s switchable Soft Clipping™ circuit significantly reduces the risk
of damage to loudspeakers from prolonged operation at high power.

Such refinements give the C 375BEE the lowest levels of distortion and noise
available in its price class, making its performance comparable to far more
expensive products. Noise and distortion mask the fine details of musical
recordings, replacing musical texture and dimension with non-musical artifacts
— which is why NAD has spent 35 years perfecting its designs to achieve the
lowest distortion and highest power in their price class.
