NAD C 368 with BluOS

Sound+Image - - Stereo Amplifiers -


It’s a NAD am­pli­fier with ben­e­fits — rear slots that take mod­ules to ex­pand the amp’s abil­i­ties. On the C 368 we had for re­view, one of th­ese MDC’ slots was filled with a BluOS 2 mod­ule, which adds $500 to the price ($1999 in­clud­ing it), and this adds a huge raft of abil­i­ties, bring­ing net­work­ing as well as stream­ing — you can play mu­sic di­rectly from the in­ter­net us­ing mu­sic ser­vices, and can also ac­cess files in­clud­ing high-res FLAC, Ap­ple Loss­less and WAV up to 24-bit/192kHz from any­where on the lo­cal net­work, or from sticks or hard drives at­tached to the mod­ule’s USB slots. And you can con­trol it us­ing the lovely BluOS app on tablet or phone.

This ex­pands on the three ana­logue in­puts in­clud­ing phono, Blue­tooth, two each of op­ti­cal dig­i­tal, and coax­ial dig­i­tal, plus the built-in Chrome­cast (which of­fers a sec­ond mul­ti­room ecosys­tem), while its fine sound is de­liv­ered by the com­pany’s Hy­bridDig­i­tal am­pli­fi­ca­tion in­volv­ing the in­no­va­tive Hypex UcD “ana­logue Class-D” tech­nol­ogy. It’s a clever, in­no­va­tive and up­grade­able am­pli­fier. More info: www.con­
