NAD Electronics cited the turnaround in the custom-install market in launching two new multichannel amplifiers intended primarily for multiroom-audio installs.

The products are the first multiroom-audio products from the brand in 10 years, and they will be complemented later this year with high-resolution network-streaming source components featuring BluOS, said Greg Stidsen, NAD’s director of technology and product planning. “We’re reentering the [custom] category.”
The two new amps are the $1,299-suggested eight-channel CI 980 with Class D switching-amp technology and the $799 four-channel CI 940 Class AB amp. Both are shipping.
