As part of the Lenbrook exhibit, NAD will preview the CI 8-120 amplifier during Integrated Systems Europe (ISE 2019), which takes place this week from Feb. 5-8 in Amsterdam.
According to the Canadian-based company, the 1U whole-house audio amplifier's small footprint takes up a minimum amount of space within a rack to allow integrators to design cost-efficient A/V systems.
Through the use of NAD's proprietary digital signal processing (DSP) technologies, integrators can tailor the amp's performance to meet the individual requirements of each unique customer installation circumstance.
