NAD Electronics introduces the C 426 FM/AM Tuner, offering low standby power, a new design, and a host of convenient features.
The C 426 builds on the strengths of previous NAD tuners by offering reception quality that NAD claims rivals that of today's broadcasts. This tuner gets the maximum out of the airwaves by employing a MOS-FET RF Front End design, high quality components, and careful PCB layout. With these features, NAD is reportedly able to achieve sensitivity with low intermodulation distortion. Even the AM section of the C 426 is said to retain clarity with low background noise.
NAD has completely redesigned the power supply for improved efficiency and low power consumption during standby while still allowing all remote activation and control interfaces.
The C 426 FM/AM Tuner is convenient to use with its 30 available presets in any combination of AM and FM stations, nameable presets (up to eight characters) for AM and non-RDS stations, RDS PS (Program Service) that automatically displays the name of the radio station, RDS RT (Radio Text) that displays additional information broadcast by the radio station (such as the artist and/or song), Auto Search for optimized tuning, and a "Blend" feature that narrows stereo separation and improves noise.
Additional features include:
• VFL display
• RS-232 Interface
• IR Input
The C 426 FM/AM Tuner is available now for a suggested price of $299.
