NAD C356BEE DAC

What Hi-Fi?
2 January 2012
  • Excerpt: We first reviewed the 80 watt per channel NAD C356 BEE amplifier back in October 2010. We liked its exciting, powerful sound but felt its presentation a little muscle-bound. It now comes with a DAC for an extra £80. That basic version continues at £615, and is capable of accepting add-on modules to augment its five line-level inputs. There’s an option of a phono stage, but we’re quite taken with the idea of a built-in digital-to-analogue converter.
  • Pros: Excellent DAC module, keen pricing for upgrade, powerful
  • Cons: Full potential limited by the accompanying amplifier

NAD C356BEE

What Hi-Fi?
19 March 2011
  • Excerpt: The £600 price-point is sparse when it comes to integrated stereo amps, our Buyer's Guide confirms. So NAD has either cannily pitched the C356BEE where there's little competition or produced an amp at a price where no real market exists. Either way, there's no doubting the C356BEE's on-paper credentials. It has seven line-level inputs (including two tape loops and a fascia-sited 3.5mm socket), switches for two pairs of loudspeakers and defeatable tone controls.
  • Pros: Good spec, familiar NAD aesthetic, spirited, gale-force sound
  • Cons: Could be more deft and open

Expert Review

Lyd & Billede
22 April 2013
  • Excerpt: NAD C356BEE DAC er opgivet til at yde 2 x 80 watt, og NAD bruger en såkaldt PowerDrive-teknologi, som de hævder gør, at forstærkeren løbende tilpasser sig impedans-karakteristikken fra de tilsluttede højttalere, så forholdet mellem strøm og spænding hele tiden er optimalt. På samme måde, som en bil skifter gear, alt efter om det går op eller ned ad bakke. Derfor skal 80 NAD-watt være mere end almindelige watt.
  • Pros: Kraftig, Kan også bruges som effektforstærker
  • Cons: Mangler detaljer

Et skikkelig krafttak

Lyd & Bilde

  • Summary: NADs har med den nye C356BEE konstruert en fleksibel forsterker med mye kraft. NAD-forsterkeren er meget energisk i bassgjengivelsen. Selv når forsterkeren presses, holder den kontrollen. Er du ute etter en partyfikser av en forsterker, så er dette et klart spennende valg!
