NAD C 326BEE Stereo Integrated Amplifier

  • Sale
  • Regular price $699.00


Tracing its lineage back to the original NAD 3020, an amplifier that changed the industry, the C 326BEE is a truly extraordinary component. With more than twice the power output, as well as a pure Class A preamp circuit, the C 326BEE delivers an outstanding performance. Featuring 7 line inputs, and a pre-amplifier section that can be separated from the power amplifier for easy upgrades, the C 326BEE is a product that cannot be ignored. The C 326BEE also benefits mightily from NAD’s PowerDrive™ circuit topology, which allows the C 326BEE to deliver maximum performance to even the most powerful of speakers. With significantly low levels of both noise and distortion, the C 326BEE is a dream product for any hi-fi system, and will deliver a captivating and amazing listening experience unlike anything you’ve heard before.
