NAD Electronics continues its expansion in the “just add speakers” category with the introduction of the C 700 BluOS streaming amplifier. The C 700 suggested retail price is $1499 USD and will ship globally in late October.
Inside the solid aluminum housing is a HybridDigital UcD amplifier and BluOS Enabled network streamer. Using the BluOS app, users have the ability to cue music from a digital library, or stream from internet radio and online services like Spotify, Amazon Music HD, Tidal, and Qobuz. The C 700 delivers an experience similar to the Masters Series M10 BluOS Music Streaming Amplifier.
The C 700 is housed in a solid aluminum case, with a smooth glass front panel and 5-inch high-definition color display that shows album artwork, track status, and system settings. Via the C 700’s color display, adjusting amplifier settings is quick and convenient with the added benefit of having the ability to learn commands from any pre-existing remote control.
The highly efficient UcD amplifier design is known for its ultra-low noise and distortion through the entire frequency range, regardless of the loudspeaker load. Employing NAD’s proven HybridDigital UcD amplifier technology, the C 700 can deliver 2×80 watts of continuous power and 2×120 watts of instantaneous power, for effortless music reproduction.
The C 700 has everything needed to play music by just adding speakers. The BluOS app creates an intuitive way to select music from dozens of different streaming services, internet radio, or to play music stored on an external drive connected to the C 700’s USB port.
In addition to the audiophile grade speaker outputs, the C 700 has a subwoofer output jack where it’s required. Convenient low and high-pass crossover settings in the BluOS app provide a seamless blend between the subwoofer and main speakers.
The C 700 has two pairs of RCA analog inputs, as well as coaxial and optical digital inputs, for connecting disc players, game consoles, media adapters, and other components. There’s also an HDMI eARC port for connecting a HDTV with HDMI ARC support. This allows the C 700’s volume setting to be adjusted from the TV’s remote. Two-way aptX HD Bluetooth provides a convenient way to listen to music through wireless headphones, and stream audio from any smart device.
