NAD C 3050 Stereophonic Integrated AmplifierNAD
The NAD C 3050 Stereo Integrated Amplifier fuses a vintage design from the brand's 70s-era 3030 with the newest audio tech.
The C 3050 is equipped with NAD's MDC2 Modular Design Construction platform, making it customizable and upgradeable. It has a dark grey finish, dual VU meters, a walnut-wrapped metal case, and physical buttons for input controls, and provides great performance, innovation, and value.
Its HybridDigital UcD amplifier yields 100W/channel continuously and 135W momentarily for great sound accuracy. It houses a Texas Instruments’ PCM5242 differential DAC with high resolution and clock jitter immunity, for detailed, clear sound and precise soundstaging. With an array of digital/analogue inputs, including a low-noise phono preamp and headphone amp, plus HDMI eARC, the C 3050 can connect to all source components. An MDC2 expansion slot allows for optional upgrades.
