The new C 316BEE successfully replaces its predecessor and is perhaps the most affordable high-level integrated amplifier. See this NAD C 316BEE review for all the NAD C 316BEE specs.
This unit is characterized by more efficient nutrition and musicality, allowing for fairly modest power characteristics to perfectly transmit the dynamics of the music track. Thanks to the use of unique circuitry solutions, standby power consumption is less than one watt. This class C316BEE sets the quality standard, it is characterized by a minimum level of distortion, as well as an excellent indicator of channel separation. How do you see the power of 40W (8 Ohms)? For me, it's pretty decent. In its class C 316 BEE sets a new standard for sound quality, it is characterized by a low level of distortion and noise, as well as a high channel separation rate. The result was a rich sound with excellent dynamics and soft detail. Switching capabilities allow you to connect a variety of audio sources: from a vinyl player and a CD player to a compact digital player. Also, the device allows you to adjust the sound of high and low frequencies of ± 3 dB, if on some records you want to achieve a more detailed sound or, conversely, get a more powerful bass.
Externally, the device remained the same, but is distinguished by a more efficient power supply and a serious musical character, allowing for modest power characteristics to transmit the entire dynamics of a musical recording. The contribution to the development of the design of this device is indicated by the BEE index after the name of the amplifier. Thanks to the use of innovative circuitry solutions, the power consumption in standby mode was reduced to less than 1 Watt. In the manufacture of the amplifier, hazardous materials and lead solder in soldering were not used.
It is equipped with 6 line inputs, on its front panel there is an input for connecting an MP3 player and an output for headphones - it is quite decent for an entry-level device.
