Think the power rat­ing on an NAD prod­uct looks low? All NAD am­pli­fiers, re­ceivers and mu­sic sys­tems are made to de­liver pow­er­ful sound, not specs.

Its de­sign­ers are con­cerned with re­flect­ing real-life lis­ten­ing sit­u­a­tions – and so they ap­ply strin­gent mea­sure­ment stan­dards. They test the amps with a dif­fi­cult 4-ohm load, with all chan­nels driven simultaneously across the full 20)[–20k)[ fre­quency range, at rated dis­tor­tion. That’s a far heftier test than many other man­u­fac­tur­ers. Ad­di­tion­ally, NAD’S am­pli­fiers store re­serve cur­rent that can then be supplied in short bursts, giv­ing ex­tra power to mu­si­cal crescen­dos. ,nown as Power Drive, it gives a boost of mu­si­cal ex­cite­ment – and less dis­tor­tion, even un­der the most test­ing cir­cum­stances.
