NAD C338 Integrated Amplifier with DAC, Google Cast, Bluetooth and Phono Stage

NAD have been producing quality HiFi and A/V equipment for nearly half a century - over that period of time NAD has always focussed on affordable, innovative products that make real world sense and of course, beautiful sounding music. The latest range of NAD products continue this tradition and maintain the simple, clean look that is also part of the NAD philosophy. 

The latest Classic series of amplifiers all utilise the Hybrid Hypex UcD Digital Amplification technology that delivers great sound, uses less power and outputs low distortion. 

NAD has leveraged its hybrid digital amplifier technology into a wide variety of products. With efficient signal paths come low distortion and the honest, neutral sound NAD is famous for. The C 338 Hybrid Digital Integrated Amplifier takes a rugged and reliable two-channel design and adds digital inputs along with Wi-Fi streaming capabilities and built-in Chromecast. Now you can enjoy clean, pure sound from both wired and wireless sources.

Following in the footsteps of some of NAD’s greatest units, the NAD C 338 delivers todays modern set of features, while firmly adhering to NAD’s unwavering commitment to exquisite sound. The C 338 can wirelessly connect to any smartphone, tablet, with either Google Cast or Bluetooth® to give you a seamless listening experience. Featuring a MM phono input, the C 338 breathes new life into vinyl LPs, thanks in part to NAD’s innovative Hybrid Digital™ amp technology. The C 338 also features a headphone amplifier, letting you connect your favourite headphones and settle back into your own world of detailed sound.

the NAD C338 - A Flexible Integrated Amplifier with Wireless Connectivity

When it comes to Classic Series amplifiers, no feature is overlooked. Low noise circuits, precise volume control action, and accurate channel balance are all key characteristics of the C 338. With the added bonus of proper input and output impedance traits (ensuring a linear frequency response across all inputs), plus high overload margins and stability with difficult speaker loads, the C 338 is the best choice for audiophiles who are just starting to build their dream systems. The C 338 also includes a MM phono stage with precisely correct RIAA equalization, high overload margins, extremely low noise, and an innovative circuit to suppress infrasonic noise that is present on all LPs—all without affecting bass response.

Versatility in Spades

The line inputs of the C 338 can accommodate all kinds of analogue source components (2 stereo analogue inputs). It offers ideal input impedance attributes with linear, ultra-low noise buffer amplifiers to prevent any sonic degradation caused by improper loading of the source device. The C 338 also features a separate headphone amplifier with low output impedance and very high output voltage capability, enough in fact to drive even high impedance studio monitor headphones. The low impedance line outputs can also connect to either a subwoofer or a bigger power amplifier to further extend the versatility of the C 338.

Ready for Streaming

With support for Bluetooth as well as Google Cast, you can instantly connect and listen to the music service of your choice, or wirelessly stream music and playlists stored directly on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Plus, with its high performance digital circuitry, Wireless streaming has never sounded as good as it does with the C338.

Hypex Output Stage

The C 338 uses a customised version of the proven Hypex UcD output stage. This allows for massive power with nearly immeasurable distortion and noise in the audible range. Every detail of this design has been carefully crafted and perfectly executed to wring out the best performance possible. The perfect starter amp for audiophiles and music lovers alike, the C 338 will flawlessly deliver NAD’s signature flexibility and expansive power.
