NAD C298 Stereo Power Amplifier

Designed for use in everything from conventional hi-fi and home cinema systems to hideaway custom installations. It has single-ended and balanced inputs for flexibility, and switchable signal-sensing for remote operation, while its energy-efficient Purifi Eigentakt amplification technology gives it the ability to drive just about any speaker with impunity. The sound is spectacular, and upgradable too – switch it into bridge mode, and you have a 600W+ monoblock!

 

Review - Best Power Amplifier 2021- 2022 - EISA


The amazing new Eigentakt™ (self-clocking) technology which was recently introduced to the world in the EISA Award winning Masters M33, is now available to a wider audience with the very affordable C 298. It is a perfect companion for the C658 BluOS Streaming DAC pre-amp.
