Even in the digital world, the purist still exists. The arrival of the C 162 marks the pinnacle of ultimate in performance combined with simplicity and ease-of-use. Now sound that is pure and true to original recordings can be enjoyed with the convenience of a remote control. With 6 line level inputs and 2 line level outputs, (including variable) 12-volt triggers and a remote control, the C 162 offers the flexibility of a contemporary preamp with the ease of use previously found on those "simple" components of yesterday. Spec sheets alone can only prepare you for the experience of an NAD preamp, but it is an emotion best felt with a personal audition.
