NAD C 3050 Stereophonic Amplifier

In the C 3050 Stereophonic Amplifier, NAD’s 50-year history of innovation meets the future of hi-fi. With its dual VU meters, push-button input selectors, walnut-finished vinyl-clad cabinet, and 1970s cursive-style branding, the C 3050 recalls the components that helped a generation of music-lovers discover the joys of great audio. With its 100-watt-per-channel HybridDigital UcD amplifier and Texas Instruments high-resolution differential DAC, the C 3050 delivers sound that will thrill today’s discerning listeners. And thanks to NAD’s MDC2 future-proofing technology, C 3050 owners can add leading-edge capabilities like BluOS high-resolution multi-room streaming and Dirac Live room correction.

With its full suite of digital and analogue inputs, the C 3050 can accommodate all your source components. Vinyl fans will appreciate the C 3050’s ultra-low-noise MM phono stage. For movie and TV viewing, the C 3050 has an HDMI eARC port for connecting an HDTV, enabling the C 3050 to serve as the hub of a high-performance two- or 2.1-channel home-theatre setup. The C 3050 also has line-level analogue coaxial digital, and optical digital inputs.

Listeners can connect two pairs of speakers with Speaker A/B switching, as well as a subwoofer. Bidirectional aptX HD Bluetooth connectivity lets you stream audio to the C 3050 from a smart device and stream audio from the C 3050 to a pair of wireless headphones. The C 3050 also has a dedicated headphone amplifier, and pre-out/main-in jacks that let you connect a more powerful amplifier and use the C 3050 as a preamp only. The C 3050 includes an IR remote control and has installer-friendly features like 12V trigger and IR input.
