NAD C 390DD is Product of the Month in Gramophone
September 10, 2012
The world's highly respected critical music magazine Gramophone feature NAD's C 390DD Direct Digital Powered DAC Amplifier in a marvellous double-page-spread, where audiophile expert Andrew Everard goes into extensive detail and includes a 'Design Notes' feature with NAD Director of Technology and Product Development, Greg Stidsen.
Featuring Direct Digital technology first introduced in our now famous M2 Direct Digital Amplifier, the C 390DD will amaze with its transparent, uncoloured and authentic sound quality. The most accurate DAC Amplifier ever devised, the C 390DD was built with loads of power, MDC upgradability, software defined operation, and exclusive NAD features to provide impeccable, powerful sound quality in the service of artistic vision. The C 390DD is digital from start to finish, truly reinventing how digital music should sound.
"Digital from input to speaker outputs, this amplifier can compete with the very best."
"...that combination of power, clarity and speaker sensing allowing the amp to power the speakers to ridiculous listening levels without a hint of distortion or stress."
"...no alteration of tonality, no hardening of the sound or blurring of notes - it just gets louder as you wind up the level."
"The NAD C 390DD has grabbed itself a place on my (extremely short) list of the very best amplifiers you can buy today. If you're in the market at this level, you simply must have a listen to what is as impressive a technical achievement as it is a sonic one."
