NAD Introduces New Energy-Saving C 426 FM/AM Tuner

Thanks to NAD Electronics, it is now possible to be ecologically friendly and get better reception on AM and FM radio stations. Not only does the company's new tuner obtain superior reception, it also has a new design that uses less power.

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.
