The addition of NAD's asynchronous 24/96 USB MDC DAC in either of their two top-rated amplifiers, the C 375BEE or C 356BEE (rated at 150 and 80-watt per channel respectively) is perfect for improving the sound of a Squeezebox or Sonos system, or you can directly connect a Mac or PC to stream 24/96 HD music. The MDC DAC's Optical S/PDIF Input upgrades the sound of Disc Players or Music Streamers while the Asynchronous USB device side input allows direct connection of a PC or MAC.

With technology that trickles down from NAD's Masters Series, these amplifiers deliver reportedly the lowest levels of distortion and noise in their price class. C 375DAC delivers 150 watts per channel while the C 356DAC is rated at 80 watts per channel. Both power ratings use NAD's ultra-conservative full disclosure power. NAD rates its receivers with a 4-Ohm load, with both channels driven simultaneously, over the full frequency bandwidth (20Hz - 20kHz), and at rated distortion. This approach is designed to reflect real world conditions that the listener is likely to encounter with their system.

Both the C 375DAC and C 356DAC feature NAD's PowerDrive circuit that delivers high dynamic power and low impedance drive capability to accurately control loudspeakers.

In addition to the performance and value of built in DACs, these two top-rated NAD integrated amplifiers, feature the company's Modular Design Construction (MDC), making it easy to upgrade features and functionality. For owners that wish to add a phono module, the C 375DAC comes with a second slot for an optional inboard PP375 Phono Module. C 356DAC owners wishing phono preamp functionality may use an optional outboard PP 2i or PP 3i for the phono functions.
