NAD C379

NAD C379  is a brilliant HybridDigital UcD powered integrated amplifier with DAC and streaming capability option via  MCD2 upgrade board.

Like all BluOS-enabled components, the optional MDC2 BluOS-D will bring MQA decoding and rendering capability to the C 389, as well Apple AirPlay 2 and control by popular voice assistants.

MAXIMUM POWER AND PERFORMANCE

Every detail of the C 379 amplifier design has been refined for maximum performance. Starting with a customised version of the proven HybridDigital UcD output stage, the C 379 operates in a fully balanced bridge configuration. This allows for massive power with nearly immeasurable distortion and noise in the audible range. The power supply is capable of 80 watts continuously and over 120 watts instantaneously to allow for short-term musical transients. For even greater power, the C 379 can be bridged in mono with the C 268 to provide up to 300 watts per channel of distortion-free sound.

BRILLIANT MUSICALITY AND DETAIL

The C 379’s digital architecture is built around the critically acclaimed ESS SABRE® ES9028 DAC, one of the industry’s highest performance 32-bit digital-to-analogue converts with unprecedented dynamic range and ultra-low distortion. It provides ultra-high-quality music playback, free from clock jitter common in digital audio systems. The results are an exceptionally wide dynamic range, ultra-low distortion, accurate sound stage and unparalleled clarity.

FUTURE-PROOF FLEXIBILITY

Since 2006, NAD has led the way in providing users the flexibility to add features as new A/V technologies are introduced to provide unparalleled performance and value. Now, with the second generation of NAD’s Modular Design Construction (MDC) technology, the C 379 is in a class of its own. It features two MDC2 slots for upgrading the amplifier’s capabilities with emerging A/V technologies and additional features, including BluOS® high-resolution multi-room streaming and Dirac Live Room Correction.

THE POWER OF BLUOS

With the available MDC2 BluOS-D module, Dirac Live, BluOS, Apple AirPlay 2, two-way aptX® HD Bluetooth, and more, can be added to the C 379. With BluOS, the C 379 can be connected to a home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet to experience the most advanced multi-room wireless music management system with 24 bit/192kHz resolution. Controlled through the BluOS app for smartphone, tablet, or desktop, BluOS manages your digital music collection and connects to over 20 high-quality streaming music services including Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz, Amazon Music, Spotify, and more.

CONNECT EVERYTHING

The C 379 is well equipped with a variety of analogue and digital connectivity options including aptX HD Bluetooth, HDMI eARC, MM Phono stage, and two subwoofer outputs. aptX HD can easily support 24-bit streaming from any Bluetooth enabled device, while HDMI eARC allows you to connect the C 379 to your TV and provide seamless control from your existing remote. It also includes a built-in high-performance headphone amplifier with low output impedance and high output voltage capability, allowing it to drive a wide range of headphones.
