NAD’s new generation of distribution amplifiers offer the signature NAD sonic performance with a host of technological features. These new ampliﬁ ers will allow installers to program and control a variety of functions which can be accessed through a web browser. The custom web app can manage DSP calibration and IP control as well as offer several diagnostic features. Once the installer has accessed the unit from within the network, the ampliﬁ er can be set up, calibrated, as well as reboot, factory reset, restore custom settings, and update firmware.
All models are based on tried and true ampliﬁ cation platforms delivering stable and reliable performance. A variety of power methods are available as well as an Eco mode setting for minimal power consumption. The first of the new NAD Distribution Amplifiers is the CI 8-120DSP, available in October.
The CI 8-120 delivers 8 x 120 watts per channel at 8ohm and is bridgeable to 4 x 240 watts per channel at 8ohm. The hybrid digital ampliﬁ er platform delivers stable and efficient power with high current capability in a 1U rack space. The CI 8-120DSP uses a custom version of the Hypex UcD output stage. This allows for massive power with extremely low distortion and noise. Available in October.
