NAD C700 (unpacking device)
Versatile and powerful.
A feast for all senses
The C 700 is the ideal all-in-one solution for the streaming age. Just connect two speakers, select the music you want with the BluOS App on your smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac and start playing. NAD’s proven HybridDigital UcD amplifier technology provides a continuous output power of 2 x 80 watts and a pulse power of 120 watts, offering sufficient reserves to drive even the most power-hungry speakers. The highly efficient UcD amplifier design features extremely low noise and minimal distortion across the entire frequency band, regardless of the speaker load.
Thanks to its elegant, minimalist design and high-quality housing materials, the C 700 appeals to all the senses ? not just hearing, but also seeing and touching. The amplifier has a solid aluminum housing with a high-resolution, 12.7-centimeter color display integrated into the glass front. All amplifier settings can be conveniently adjusted via the menus shown on the display with the help of the rotary control and the navigation keys.
And convenient operation of the amplifier from the seat is also taken care of: In addition to controlling all streaming functions via the intuitive BluOS App, the C 700 can also learn the commands of any infrared remote control.
State-of-the-art technologies for comfortable music enjoyment
With its Ethernet LAN connection, integration into the home WiFi and the award-winning BluOS platform, which has been highly praised by the trade press, the NAD C 700 is an extremely powerful and versatile network streamer. The BluOS app, which is available free of charge for Android, Apple iOS, Kindle Fire, Windows, and macOS, lets you select numerous Internet radio stations and dozens of streaming services, or play music stored on an external drive connected to the C 700’s USB port. In addition, the NAD amplifier supports Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect, so direct playback via these services’ apps is also possible. AirPlay 2 connects to Apple devices and iTunes libraries, and music can even be selected via Apple Siri voice control.
The high-resolution D/A converter of the C 700 processes streams up to a data format of 24 bit/192 kHz. This makes it possible to play lossless and high-resolution audio data from the Hi Res offerings of Amazon Music HD, Deezer, Qobuz and TIDAL. Like all BluOS? compatible components, the amplifier is also capable of decoding and playing back MQA files.
Owners of smarthome systems from Control4, Crestron, Elan, RTI and others can integrate the NAD C 700 directly into these control systems. This allows centralized control of music playback along with other smart functions such as control of lighting, blinds, heating and alarm systems.
Extensive connection options
In addition to its network functionality, the C 700 is equipped for the connection of numerous other audio sources. It has two analog RCA high-level inputs, as well as coaxial and optical digital inputs for connecting CD players, game consoles, and other components. There is also an HDMI eARC connection for an appropriately equipped TV set. In this case, the volume of the NAD can be conveniently controlled via the TV’s remote control.
Playback of music data stored on a smartphone, tablet or notebook is also possible wirelessly via Bluetooth® aptX? HD. The Bluetooth® module integrated in the C 700 is not only capable of receiving data, but also sends it directly to a paired Bluetooth® headphone if required.
In addition to the speaker outputs, the C 700 is equipped with a subwoofer output that can be configured via the BluOS? app. The low-pass and high-pass settings allow for a seamless transition between the subwoofer and the main speakers.
