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 their strongest range to date.
Take the NAD 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 C546BEE single disc CD Player which is the top model in the classic series and delivers a smooth 'analogue' type performance. The Amplifier remote control operates both components.
Both NAD components perform superbly with the Australian designed Subsonic XM-3 floor standing speakers which are a compact model. AudioQuest cables included.
Please Note: Turntable & Cabinet are optional extras.
