Rs. 151,900.00

NAD has a distinct reputation for creating some of the best performing budget amplifiers of all time. The C 275BEE boasts many upgrades and refinements taken directly from the highly acclaimed NAD Masters Series M3 Amplifier. These include the application of Bjorn Erik Edvardsen’s innovative and patented Distortion Canceling Circuit in the output stage and BEE Clamp in the power supply. A carefully engineered PCB layout has reduced distortion and noise to unprecedented levels. Taken together, these improvements mark a sharp upturn in performance that simply must be heard to be fully appreciated.

When it comes to an NAD product, the utmost attention to detail is paid. From the heavy gauge steel chassis to the advanced power supplies and copper buss bars, the C 275BEE represents all that NAD stands for. Equipped with NAD’s ATOLogic circuit, which includes both a 12V-trigger system and signal-sensing power-on option, this extra level of flexibility makes it easy to integrate the C 275BEE into any control system. The C 275BEE also benefits from NAD’s PowerDrive™ circuit topology, which allows the C 275BEE to deliver maximum performance under various circumstances. Delivering a well-rounded, mesmerizing performance, the C 275BEE will let you hear your music the way it was meant to be heard.

Proven Technology Enhanced by Innovation

NAD’s PowerDrive Circuit has been proven to offer a remarkable combination of high current drive needed for complex loudspeaker loads, and high levels of undistorted dynamic power. By monitoring the precise operating condition of the power amplifier, PowerDrive uses this intelligence to automatically optimize the power supply settings for uniformly low distortion and maximum power in the real world of music listening. As featured in our top Masters Series models, PowerDrive uses a complex ‘analogue computer’ to determine the optimal settings. For the C 316BEE V2, NAD’s Director of Advanced Development, Bjorn Erik Edvardsen, developed a clever new computation circuit requiring fewer parts at a much lower cost without any reduction in effectiveness.

All the hallmarks of NAD technology are present, from the generously sized toroidal power transformer and low ESR smoothing capacitors, to the multiple regulated secondary supplies, to the heavy duty discrete output transistors, the C 316BEE V2 is every bit as refined and sophisticated as other NAD amplifiers.
