When we first opened in December 1978, the NAD 3020 Stereo Amplifier was just being released. NAD didn't stop there but continued to build on the range and take it to where it is today. It is NAD's strongest range to date.


Take the C356BEE Integrated Stereo Amplifier featured here. It sits in the middle of the classic range and offers all the features the modern hi-fi system buyer needs, with enough power to drive a very good pair of speakers to quite significant levels. This is a superb sounding product and we have teamed it with the stella NAD C545BEE single disc CD Player which is the top model in the classic series.

For speakers we turn to Canadian manufacturer Paradigm. The Mini Monitor is a compact 2-way bookshelf/standmount speaker which delivers outstanding imagery with super fast bass. High quality AudioQuest cables included.

Recommended System Fast Facts

NAD C356BEE Amplifier: 2 x 80 Watts RMS output, toroidal power transformer, 7 line level inputs, heavy duty speaker wire binding posts, bass/treble controls.

NAD C546BEE CD Player: Single disc, plays regular CDs, CD-Rs, MP3 and WMA files. Wolfson DAC, digital outputs, programming and remote control.

Paradigm Mini Monitor Speakers: Canadian designed, compact 2 way bookshelf/standmount speaker, bi-amping/bi-wiring capability. 5 Year Warranty.

AudioQuest Cables: Included 2 x 2.5 metre factory terminated speaker cable with banana plugs, high-quality RCA interconnects.

The NAD C356BEE is the latest in NAD’s range of affordable, yet very high performance Integrated Stereo Amplifiers and builds on the strengths of their highly acclaimed C352 - Winner of What Hi-Fi Amplifier-of-the-Year and the Hi-Fi Choice Gold Award among many others.


The C356BEE is a highly acclaimed integrated stereo amplifier that deivers a minumum of 80 Watts RMS per channel into an 8 Ohm load - a standard that was the standard in the late 1950's early 1960's when stereo got started but has since been abandoned by many because of the extra cost of manufacturing to this...

NAD CD Players have always delivered a smooth and very palatable sound more reminiscent of some of the finest "analogue" sounds. The C546BEE enjoys the Bjorn Edvard Erikson signature CD sound at the usual bargain price.


The C546BEE CD Player takes the superb performance of the 5-star rated predecessor C546BEE and has raised the performance bar to the next level. Every aspect of sonic performance is enhanced and refined making the C546BEE the ideal companion to the NAD C356BEE amplifier or any system in need of a performance upgrade.

This new CD player also delivers a new, fresh and... Read More>>
Paradigm Mini Monitor - Black
Good architecture will stand up well over time, as will good sonic architecture. Paradigm's Monitor Series 7 is a classic example.


Now in its seventh iteration, each new generation is an opportunity for refinement: design innovations from their higher-priced reference lineups, reference-quality component parts, cabinets and even finishes! When it comes to getting value for your money, it doesn't get better than Monitor Series 7. Since its inception, the Monitor Series has been a favourite of audiophiles on a budget - with Series 7, that hasn't changed.

AudioQuest Type 4 - 2.5 Metre
When Bill Low created AudioQuest in 1980 it was really just a small variation of the audio activities he had started in 1972 when at school. He wanted the best audio sound then and we are pleased to say nothing has changed. It all started with speaker cable and the story continues.


At first glance, Type 4 looks like a normal round cable, but inside is a fully optimized and very sophisticated balance of quality ingredients and refined design.

All four of Type 4’s conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the single... Read More>>
AudioQuest Golden Gate - 600mm
AudioQuest introduces a brand new range of audio interconnects which deliver a performance level and price that just a few years ago would have been simply impossible. The AudioQuest Golden Gate stereo RCA cable is terminated by a gold-plated male stereo RCA connectors on each end.


The AudioQuest Golden Gate Series of interconnect cables bring together some of their most advanced designs and materials all in a budget-priced, but good quality item. They can be relied upon to deliver excellent sound quality from a cable that's still relatively lightweight. With its Golden... Read More>>
