User Review: C 390DD Direct Digital Powered DAC Amplifier - C390DD Amplifier is a Triumph of Technology AND Music

April 14, 2013

Products: C 390DD Direct Digital Powered DAC Amplifier

I have loved and played music for most of my life. I first became interested in stereo equipment as a hobby after an after high school sales job at Lafayette Radio in New York. Since then, I've listened to and owned hundreds of components. In my experience, the C390DD is a perfect combination of technology and musicality. It gets the technology out of the way with a very simple and intuitive interface and plays the music as it was recorded. I've lived with my C390 for several months now and have enjoyed every moment of listening. I've listened to all of my favorite audio files and can say confidently that the amplifier adds nothing to what was recorded and also takes nothing away. The great recordings sound fantastic, and the poor recordings sound, well, poor. The soundstage is very wide and deep. Instruments are precisely located. You can tell the left hand of the solo guitarist from the right hand. You can hear the length and width of a concert piano. It is remarkably silent with not a hint of hum or noise. Dynamic range is huge. I have never felt a lack of power when listening even to big symphonic pieces. Previously, I owned a high end tube amplifier and a state of the art preamp. Replacing them both with the C390DD has improved the sound I hear and my enjoyment of listening very much. It works flawlessly. I highly recommend the C390DD for anyone who loves music and doesn't feel a need to own super expensive equipment to impress others. It is a great value and a great product! Thanks NAD!
