Description :

NAD's C320 has a lot of hidden talents. Underneath the lid lurks a toroidal power supply which can deliver huge current and therefore huge dynamics, giving it more power than many similarly rated amplifiers. Provision is made for system expansion, thanks to the pre/power loop, which enables power amplifier or home cinema processor connections to be easily made, while the handy remote control and "NAD link" allow not only the amp, but also other NAD components such as tape decks and tuners to be controlled!

• Soft Clipping

• NAD Link

Introducing the C320. This amplifier is the latest in the family of NAD’s modestly priced integrated

amplifiers which stretch back to the legendary 3020. One step up from the splendid 310,


The C320 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 (bi-amping, for instance) or adding

ancillary equipment without making the C320 redundant.

Tone controls tend to come and go on amplifiers, depending on whatever is in vogue at the time. This

does not mean that tone controls should necessarily be regarded as a superfluous extra. Given proper

thought and design, tone controls can make a genuine contribution to overall sound quality. The C320

tone controls only work at the frequency extremes leaving the critical mid-band essentially unaltered.

The tone control circuits can be completely bypassed by using the tone defeat switch.

A closer look at ISC
The NAD C320 is one of the first products to benefit from Bj
ørn Erik Edvardsen's latest development.
ISC topology - the letters stand for Impedance Sensing Circuit - allows the C320 to deliver maximum

performance under virtually any circumstance, independent of the loudspeakers it is driving. The circuitry

automatically recognises the impedance characteristics of the loudspeaker and will then adjust its power

supply settings to best cope with that specific load.
NAD takes a stand against the mindless
brochure powerapproach which doesn't give a realisticindication of an amplifier
s true capabilities. Instead, the ISC topology is a practical approach to enablean amplifier to easily deal with dynamics and difficult loads. More meaningful are the C320
s dynamic
capabilities; up to 160 Watts into 2 ohms and up to 35 amps current capability!

All the traditional and essentially useful NAD features are here, such as Soft Clipping (helps prevent your

speakers from damage through abuse!) and Pre-out/Main-in for extra flexibility and to provide an easy

upgrade path for example. Like all the other in- and output sockets, the Pre-out/Main-in sockets are

gold plated for long-term contact reliability.

As the C320 also has NAD Link the remote control will also operate many other NAD products such as

CD players, tuners etc.

Other design features include relay input switching (located right behind the input sockets for short

signal paths) and the large toroidal transformer (less mechanical hum and stray magnetic field). The

generous power supply and over-rated output devices further lead to low noise and low distortion for

the entire amplifier.

The C320 does it all at a price that will astound you.
