NAD’s New Classic Amplifiers. Intelligent. Powerful. Efficient – Introducing the NAD C 368

Expansive Power with Unprecedented Flexibility

The C 368 ties together all the critical elements of a top performing music system; music sources past, present, and future, in addition to providing a nearly unrestricted reservoir of power that allows your speakers to reveal every nuance of musical detail. This advanced amplifier includes many cutting-edge technological breakthroughs developed by NAD over decades of creating affordable ultra-high performance audio components.

Getting the Basics Right

It is surprising how many seemingly advanced products in the market today often miss many of the most basic requirements for satisfying performance. Low noise circuits, precise volume control action, accurate channel balance, proper input and output impedance characteristics, high overload margins and stability with difficult speaker loads. NAD starts by getting these things precisely right and advances from there. This amplifier includes an MM Phono stage with precisely accurate RIAA equalization, high overload margins, extremely low noise, and an innovative circuit to suppress infrasonic noise that is present on all LPs – all without affecting bass response.

The line inputs can accommodate all kinds of analogue source components, by offering ideal input impedance characteristics with linear ultra-low-noise buffer amplifiers to prevent any sonic degradation caused by inappropriate loading of the source device. Also included is a separate headphone amplifier with low output impedance and very high output voltage capability – enough to drive even high impedance studio monitor headphones. Low impedance line outputs that can connect to other amplifiers or subwoofers extend the versatility of this well thought out amplifier. These are all details you can hear.


In my time with the C 368, I found it to be effectively bulletproof. It served as a transparent conduit for audio signals, converting them from the source to an amplified signal that drives speakers, which is the ultimate goal of any audiophile 2-channel system worth its salt.

The C 368 is a tool designed by talented professionals with an eye on both performance and value. Based on my time with one, it will deftly handle driving just about any speaker you send its way. ()


To Say That I am Impressed with the Features and Performance That THE NAD C368 Offers at this Price Point is an Understatement. With the Msrp of USD $899 for the Basic C368 Configuration Plus USD $399 for the Bluos Module Upgrade, the High Value Offered by the Product is Hard to Beat.

NAD C368 offers a wealth of features that should satisfy even the most demanding of hi-fi fans with a useful modular approach to expandability, the NAD C368 provides an open and detailed sonic presentation. ()
