NAD Is The Class Leader When It Comes To Bang For Your Buck!!!
17 May 2013
Summary: This is an incredible amplifier. Rarely if ever will you find a better product for the money than what you get from NAD. This is an incredibly powerful amplifier and is especially sweet sounding through the full extent of it's range. I actually purchased the C375DAC which is the C375BEE with the factory installed DAC. This allows the best sounding playback of digital music from your pc, internet sources, or a media player.
Summary: Extraordinarily good receiver. I pair this with PSB Synchrony Two B bookshelf speakers, staged using Jim Smith's "Get Better Sound", and the overall setup is marvelous. Source is usually 96khz recordings played on a Macbook through Audirvana, output through USB to a NuForce DAC, then out to the NAD. I try doing comparison tests, and just get lost in the music and forget what I'm supposed to be appraising.
Pros: Everything above. Such a big step up from what I had before it's hard to describe.
Cons: Heavy, and the remote sometimes doesn't respond well. The remote seems under-engineered compared to everything else.
Summary: I needed to upgrade a Denon AVR system we using for a bar/restaurant sound system so I called Crutchfield and spoke with Brian about my situation. We weren't using the receiver portion of the Denon so he suggested the NAD C37BEE to accommodate our 5 possible feeds for music along with the Niles HPS-6 since we have five zones of music, each with its own volume control. This works perfectly and has plenty of power for our business.
Pros: Easy to set up and sounds great! Fantastic individual products and a superb pairing.
Cons: The NAD came strapped for Pre-Out 2 which has a small volume control on the back of the unit and completely bypasses the front control. Not something I expected or was able to figure out by myself. A call to Crutchfield's tech and a little troubleshooting solved my problem.
Summary: I upgraded my speakers with pair of B&W 683 and run with Yamaha A-S 500 but not power enough! After research and review I order the NAD C375BEE from Crutchfield......about 15 minutes hook up...wow..........this amp has very clean sound and drive my speakers perfected! I even get rid of my sub woofer and don't need it any more! Very special thank to Crutchfield staff help me out to solve the problems that difficult for me to find the right amp for these monster speakers!
Summary: After 29 years, and the need for a second repair in the last 4, the time came to part with my trusted Carver M-1.5t amplifier. But what could replace such reliable and wonderful companion? I'm a believer in big power, but Bob Carver's new company, Sunfire, entered into the dark side of expensive.
Summary: This amp has a very clean sound-it truly reminds me of tube equitment when the sound was real and natural,very little to adjust,the sound is just perfect,great with bose 901s,I even got rid of my subwoofer,dont need it anymore,this amp reaches lows very well,clean and undistorted. Go listen to one and youll know what im saying.
Pros: This amp is now married to my Bose 901 s,talk about a match made in heaven-I love the soft clipping feature included with this amp,i have it on but its such a clean sound I havent yet seen it work-its a power house of clean clean sound,this amp reminds me of super tube amp with perfect lows and highs. Great investment !!! Should have it for many years to come,very sturdy and solid built and you must respect its weight,if it weighed less you may wonder what your paying...
Summary: I upgraded this amp from the smaller NAD 326BEE and all can say is Wow! The amp is so clean and transparent that it really should be bumped to their reference grade line-up. Its hard to describe the sound, but its clean , accurate with no coloration at all. Seems to drive my speakers much louder and with TONS more detail than my older onkyo 100x2 amp. Overall one of the best amps ive ever owned. They are running Dynaudio Focus MkII speakers at 4 ohms.
Summary: The 375 is in an entirely different class than most of it's comparably priced competition. It's not the power, it's how it's delivered. Many of the amps I've used recently are gutless when compared with the NAD. I've ran this amp with a wide range of speakers. From inexpensive Infinity's, $3K PSB's, Vandersteens', and power gobbling Magnepans. For the $ spent, it's the best I've used. I'm tempted to buy a second one for running them bridged. It's a great product.
Summary: This integrated rocks. No matter what I do or the type of music I listen to, there is no distortion and this amp will feed you as much dynamic power as your speakers require. I run this amp with the C375 CD and PSB Image T6 and a self powered JBL sub, and I have never heard such spacious detail in an amp at this price, or twice this price, before. It makes everything you listen to sound better, and wait until you hear the horns that it produces. Incredible!!
Summary: I upgraded my speakers to the new 5000 series drivers. My integrated tube amp drove them well but they craved more power. After research and reviews, I ordered the 375 BEE from Crutchfield outlet. Ordered on a Tuesday afternoon and received on Thursday afternoon. My speakers are 4 ohm and this amp is rated at 150 wpc. That is conservative. It easy does 200 wpc and can output up to 400 wpc for brief periods when needed.
