The Canadian audio specialist NAD is expanding its portfolio with the extremely powerful 7-channel power amplifier NAD M28 and the stereo power amplifier NAD C298. The M28 belongs to NAD's high-end "Masters" series and replaces the previous flagship power amplifier M27 with its seven HybridDigital Purifi Eigentakt amplifiers, each of which should be able to mobilize 340 watts of continuous power (at 4 Ω) with extremely low distortion. For impulses, it even provides an output of up to 700 watts for short periods (one channel at 4 Ω).
The exclusive combination of NAD's own HybridDigital concept with the Eigentakt technology developed by the Danish company Purifi is designed to operate absolutely distortion- and noise-free and was recently introduced for the first time in the M33 streaming amplifier. Equipped with both conventional RCA and professional balanced XLR inputs, the M28 is the perfect partner for the likewise seven-channel A/V preamplifiers NAD M17 and M17 V2 and will be launched in September 2020* at a price of around 5,500 Euros*.
The brand-new power amplifier NAD C298 comes with two extremely efficient stereo channels. It also uses the new innovative Purifi Eigentakt technology. Equipped with Cinch and XLR inputs that are adjustable in sensitivity as well as with a pre-amplifier output, the NAD C298 has a continuous output power of 2 x 340 watts and a pulse power of 2 x 490 watts (each at 4 Ω). If required, the C298 can be operated in a bridge mode. It then mobilizes 620 or 1,000 watts (continuous/pulse at 8 Ω). The perfect partner to the Streaming preamplifier NAD C658 is available starting from the end of September* at a price of around 2,000 Euros*.
