NAD introduces C 379 multifunctional integrated amplifier


The new C 379 from NAD will be officially presented during the High End audio fair in Munich and should appear on the market in early July for a recommended retail price of around 1,200 euros.

The device features a HybridDigital UCD output stage that operates in a fully balanced bridge configuration. There is 80 Watts of continuous power per channel, with a peak of 120 Watts. If you need even more power, the output stages of the C 379 can be linked into a single channel for 300 Watts at 8 Ohms. The other channel can then be connected to a C 268 power amplifier, so that twice 300 watts are available.

The C 379 is equipped with analog and digital inputs. There is also a turntable input (for MM cartridges) and a television can be connected to the HDMI input that supports eARC. There are also two subwoofer outputs. Finally, the C 379 has a headphone connection with a high-quality headphone amplifier behind it.

Furthermore, the C 379 is equipped with an ESS Saber ES9028 32-bit DAC chip and the second generation of NAD’s Modular Design Construction (MDC) technology. The C 379 features two MDC2 slots for upgrading the amplifier’s capabilities with emerging A/V technologies and additional features including BluOS high res multiroom streaming and Dirac Live Room Correction.

With the optional MDC2 BluOS-D module, Dirac Live, BluOS, Apple AirPlay 2 and aptX HD Bluetooth can be added to the C 379. BluOS allows the device to be connected to a home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
