Proven Technology Enhanced by Innovation
NADû€ûs PowerDrive Circuit has been proven to offer a remarkable combination of high current drive needed for complex loudspeaker loads, and high levels of undistorted dynamic power. By monitoring the precise operating condition of the power amplifier, PowerDrive uses this intelligence to automatically optimize the power supply settings for uniformly low distortion and maximum power in the real world of music listening. As featured in our top Masters Series models, PowerDrive uses a complex û€ûanalog computerû€û to determine the optimal settings. For the C 316BEE V2, NADû€ûs Director of Advanced Development, Bjorn Erik Edvardsen, developed a clever new computation circuit requiring fewer parts at a much lower cost without any reduction in effectiveness. All the hallmarks of NAD technology are present, from the generously sized toroidal power transformer and low ESR smoothing capacitors, to the multiple regulated secondary supplies, to the heavy-duty discrete output transistors, the C 316BEE V2 is every bit as refined and sophisticated as other NAD amplifiers.
We are confident that the C 316BEE V2 will set new benchmarks for performance, both measured and audible, at this affordable price point. Unless you have power-hungry speakers, listen to dangerously loud levels, or have a very large room, the C 316BEE V2 will be the amplifier for you. Fundamental specifications for noise, distortion, power, stereo separation, and volume control tracking, are all class-leading and would be impressive on an amplifier costing many times its modest price.
While the C 316BEE V2 has everything necessary for musical enjoyment, it is refreshingly limited to the essentials: six inputs, one set of speakers, a headphone jack, and full-function remote control. It has a compact size and a handsome yet understated exterior. It is essential NAD.
While its bells and whistles may not be as extensive as our more expensive offerings, the C 316V2 is far from a �E€�Estripped down�E€�E product. With five line-level inputs, an MM Phono Input, full IR remote control, defeatable tone controls, and a front-panel input for a phone or tablet, the C 316V2 is fully equipped to be the control center for a high-performance music system. Continuous power is a conservative 40 watts, and dynamic power (more important for music listening) is impressively more than 100 wa
