The latest amp from NAD – the C 356BEE – was designed to offer both power and efficiency in one package. It uses the NAD PowerDrive circuit as you might expect, which helps the 356BEE to deliver more accurate sound.  Also included is NAD's exclusive Soft Clipping circuit, which eliminates clipping distortion by reshaping the sound.


The modular design of the 356BEE allows for some expansion.  If you're a vinyl fan, for example, you can pick up the PP 375 Phono Stage Module, which adds a nice high performance phono input.

NAD's new amp is energy efficient to boot.  Standby power for the C 356BEE is just half a watt and thanks to a new 'vacation' switch, you can simply cut the power consumption down to nothing.

The 356BEE is rated at 350W and has a total harmonic distortion of less than 0.009 percent.  NAD makes a point to state that their amp can "challenge amplifiers costing two to three times more," but hasn't yet mentioned a price for the 356BEE.
