NAD C298 Bridgeable Stereo Power Amplifier with Purifi Technology
Powerful. Efficient. Eigentakt™
The new Purifi Class D amplifier design brings a great amount of detail that still has body and soul. Here at Douglas HiFi we have found the NAD C 298 to compete sound quality wise with amplifiers up to twice its asking price. With plenty of power and the ability to connect RCA or Balanced XLR (along with gain trim on the inputs) - the NAD C298 is able to slot into nearly any HiFi set-up and make your speakers sound at their best.
Getting the Basics Right
It is surprising how many seemingly advanced products in the market today often miss many of the most basic requirements for satisfying performance. Low noise circuits, accurate channel balance, proper input and output impedance characteristics, high overload margins and stability with difficult speaker loads. NAD starts by getting these things precisely right and advances from there. Our line inputs, both Balanced and Single-ended, can accommodate all kinds of analog source components by offering ideal input impedance characteristics with linear ultra-low-noise buffer amplifiers to prevent any sonic degradation caused by inappropriate loading of the source device. These are all details you can hear.
Purifi ‘Eigentakt’ Amplifier Technology
Purifi is a Danish technology company that has brought together several of the industry’s leading engineers to apply advanced mathematical modelling to solve the last remaining limitations of audio amplifiers. While there are many good sounding amplifiers on the market today, Purifi has taken a fresh look at every aspect of amplifier performance and found many seemingly small non-linearities that can make a dramatic difference in the overall sound. This return to first principles has resulted in a stunningly simple approach to some remarkably complex problems. With features and technology unmatched by other amplifiers in its class, the C 298 amplifier is an easy upgrade for any system and a surprising partner for the most sophisticated and advanced loudspeakers on the market.
