NAD C 368 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier

NAD C 368 Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifier

NAD’s New Classic Amplifiers. Intelligent. Powerful. Efficient – Introducing the NAD C 368

  • 80W x 2 Continuous power into 8 or 4 Ohms
  • Bluetooth ADP4 with aptX® supported
  • MM Phono input
  • Analogue line inputs
  • Preamp/Subwoofer out
  • Headphone amplifier
  • MDC Slots for future upgrades

Expansive Power with Unprecedented Flexibility

The C 368 ties together all the critical elements of a top performing music system; music sources past, present, and future, in addition to providing a nearly unrestricted reservoir of power that allows your speakers to reveal every nuance of musical detail. This advanced amplifier includes many cutting-edge technological breakthroughs developed by NAD over decades of creating affordable ultra-high performance audio components.

Getting the Basics Right

It is surprising how many seemingly advanced products in the market today often miss many of the most basic requirements for satisfying performance. Low noise circuits, precise volume control action, accurate channel balance, proper input and output impedance characteristics, high overload margins and stability with difficult speaker loads. NAD starts by getting these things precisely right and advances from there. This amplifier includes an MM Phono stage with precisely accurate RIAA equalization, high overload margins, extremely low noise, and an innovative circuit to suppress infrasonic noise that is present on all LPs – all without affecting bass response.

The line inputs can accommodate all kinds of analogue source components, by offering ideal input impedance characteristics with linear ultra-low-noise buffer amplifiers to prevent any sonic degradation caused by inappropriate loading of the source device. Also included is a separate headphone amplifier with low output impedance and very high output voltage capability – enough to drive even high impedance studio monitor headphones. Low impedance line outputs that can connect to other amplifiers or subwoofers extend the versatility of this well thought out amplifier. These are all details you can hear.

One of the stars of CES 2016 is the elegant, trendy and eco-friendly turntable by House of Marley – the “Stir It Up” Turntable. If you’ve not heard of House of Marley before – yes, it is referring to the same Bob Marley you already know about, rolling with the brand to promote “good living and shared experiences”.

This is a compact record player with nice natural bamboo plinth. The aluminum platter is 11-inch, slightly smaller than full-size 12-inch platter. We like the fact that is it less bulky than many turntables in the market. It is space saving and looks good no matter where you put it.

A lot of attention and passion has been poured in to design this turntable. It is not one of those super OEM decks.

House of Marley also utilized Regrind™ and Rewind™, which are composed of hemp, organic cotton and recycled plastic. The base below the bamboo plinth has a fabric-wrapped finish. It is tastefully done, very sleek indeed.

It includes standard features for model turntables, such as ability to play 33 & 45rpm, USB output, counter weight and anti-skating adjustment, tonearm level, RCA output, built-in switchable phono pre-amp, and MM cartridge. To be specific, the cartridge used is Audio Technica AT91/BL. We estimate it weights around 3.5kg. This weight, together with the anti vibration legs, helps to reduce external vibration. That means better sound than many ultra-light, plasticky enter-level turntables.

Although the headshell is not detachable, it is a standard mount. This make it possible to upgrade the stock cartridge to something better, like the well-known and highly praised Audio Technica AT95e. It has a built-in 3.5mm jack headphone output in front. For those of you who likes to listen to vinyl music on earphones or headphones, you can just plug and play. The built-in headphone amplifier does the job, no additional components needed. It is a bit odd because the volume is not adjustable. Well, we suppose you can enhanced it with external mini amplifier, so not a problem.

I’ll be damned if I don’t mention how nice is the product packaging. Now wrapping paper needed if you get this as a gift!!
