NAD C 375BEE Integrated Amplifier

The NAD C 375BEE is far more than a bigger C 355BEE - in fact, it is much closer in specs to the M3 Integrated Amplifier from NAD's high end Masters Series. It also incorporates an updated version of NAD's "Building Block" concept to make the addition of the PP375 phono module or the MDC DAC USB Digital Analogue Converter and other affordable future upgrades possible. Attention to the most minute detail is evident everywhere, from the heavy gauge steel chassis to the sophisticated power supplies and copper buss bars channeling almost absurd amounts of current to the custom gold plated speaker binding posts.

The C 375BEE boasts many upgrades and refinements taken directly from the highly acclaimed NAD Masters Series M3 Amplifier. These include thr Distortion Canceling Circuit in the output stage and BEE Clamp in the power supply. An improved tone control circuit and revised 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.

The C 375BEE comes supplied with the NAD SR 8 system remote control. The remote control features an ergonomic form, with large buttons that are differentiated by shape and position, to make operation intuitive and enjoyable. The SR 8 will also operate many other NAD products such as CD players, tuners, etc.

Flexibility is another NAD strong point. The C 375BEE has 7 line inputs (including 2 tape in/outputs with dubbing facility) and the pre-amplifier section can be separated from the power amplifier for easy upgrades or adding ancillary equipment, and can be expanded to meet future system needs. The C 375BEE sports pre-amp outputs: Many systems benefit from the use of multiple power amplifiers for "Bi-Amping" (using separate power amplifiers to drive the bass and treble section of a loudspeaker). The first Preamp Out includes a level trim control to allow matching of amps or speakers with different sensitivities. Additionally there is a second Preamp Out to connect to powered subwoofer, an increasingly popular option.

Another option is to 'bridge' the C 375BEE and add the matching C 275BEE for one of the most powerful home audio systems you'll ever encounter. Power goes from 150W x 2 to over 400W x 2! For remote on/off switching of ancillary components in a system, such as power amplifiers or active speakers, the C 375BEE is equipped with a 12V-trigger system. When switching the amplifier on, the 12V-trigger output is also activated which in turn can activate a 12V-trigger input, switching on the remote devices. Besides the 12V-trigger, the C 375BEE also has rear panel IR in and out.

It is fashionable to omit tone controls nowadays: However, provided that the tone controls are properly designed, they can be really useful tools in making improvements to the overall sound. The C 375BEE tone controls only work at frequency extremes leaving the critical mid-band essentially unaltered.

The tone control circuits can be completely bypassed using the tone defeat switch. The C 375BEE also incorporates NAD's acclaimed switchable "Soft Clipping" circuit, which significantly reduces the risk of damage to loudspeakers due to prolonged high power operation.
