NAD Electronics’ C 298 Power Amplifier Awarded Top Honour by EISA

NAD C298 EISA Award winner

The world’s top hi-fi press praise the versatility and performance of the brand’s latest power amplifier

PICKERING, CANADA, AUGUST 15, 2021 NAD Electronics, a leading manufacturer of premium home audio and video products, announced today that the C 298 Power Amplifier, featuring the lauded Eigentakt amplification technology has won the 2021-22 EISA Award for Power Amplifiers. EISA, the Expert Imaging and Sound Association, is an independent body of over 50 specialty electronics publications from around the world. The award winners are chosen as the best in their category from the thousands of products tested and reviewed by EISA member publications over the year.

The editors of EISA’s hi-fi audio board recognized the NAD C 298 for its combination of superior amplifier performance and versatility, saying:

“NAD started its story making amplifiers, and has been researching and developing the technology for almost half a century. All that shows in the unassuming-looking C 298 power amplifier, designed for use in everything from conventional hi-fi and home cinema systems to hideaway custom installations. It has single-ended and balanced inputs for flexibility, and switchable signal-sensing for remote operation, while its energy-efficient Purifi Eigentakt amplification technology gives it the ability to drive just about any speaker with impunity. The sound is spectacular, and upgradable too – switch it into bridge mode, and you have a 600W+ monoblock!”

“The goal with the C 298 is to create massive power with nearly no distortion, which gives the amplifier its versatility,” says Cas Oostvogel, Product Manager at NAD Electronics. “We therefore worked with the forward-thinking people at Purifi to create an Eigentakt amplifier that has the balance of performance, value, and sound quality that NAD is known for.”

With the EISA Awards now in their fourth decade and a membership including the leading audio publications from Europe, The Americas, and Asia-Pacific, the results are widely regarded as one of the highest honours in the hi-fi industry. To win an EISA award, products undergo a robust, rigorous and exhaustive judging process in two stages. Following intensive testing and audition by specialists at EISA member publications, each member submits a shortlist of the best products in each awards category before being put through a democratic voting process to establish a consensus of excellence and determine the winning products.

The C 298 Power Amplifier is available at select premium audio retailers around the world.
