Winner of the 1998 What Hi-Fi? Best Buy Amplifier Award, this truly is a Amplifier that will stand up to the competion.
True its simple, typical NAD, design can leave you feeling abit like, 'what's all that money for then?' but it well worth the price tag.
The Amplifier offers a respecatble 40W of power that is easily enough to power most speakers in most rooms. It is important when buying separate system you are buying quality. If you want features then you might as well get a mini-system. What the C320 offers is an amplifer that can take the rough with the smooth. A amplifier that impresses with its loud and unburstable presentation. Don't be fooled by it low wattage, in typical NAD sytle, this Amp is understated in every way shape and form.
The remote is made for the C340 as well and the inability to turn it off from the remote is frustrating at times but if that's all I can moan about than its not a bad thing. The remote can also be used with other NAD components basic functions a useful little extra.
It has full tonal and balance functions, a tone defeat control and soft clipping function for the real perfectionists amongst you. It has two tape-loops, pre/power amp couplers, tuner, aux, disc, video and cd output as would be expected as well a headphone socket, which requires the large connection but this sort system should be shared.
I combine this amp with the NAD C520 CD player and the sound is as good as my ear can tell. It classes itself as a budget amp but like the C520 CD player it really is so much more.
