Embodying half a century of audio mastery, the NAD C379 is everything you’d expect from a Classic Series amplifier. Continuing NAD’s tradition of delivering simplicity, value, and innovation, the C379 features the latest generation of MDC technology, 80 watts per channel of HybridDigital UcD amplification, and a high-performance ESS SABRE DAC that lets you experience music with exceptional sonic detail and clarity. For even greater power, operate the C379 in bridged mode with an additional C268 power amp for up to 300W per channel!


The C379’s digital architecture is built around the critically acclaimed ESS SABRE ES9028 DAC, one of the industry’s highest performance 32-bit digital-to-analogue converts with unprecedented dynamic range and ultra-low distortion. It provides ultra-high-quality music playback, free from clock jitter common in digital audio systems. The results are an exceptionally wide dynamic range, ultra-low distortion, accurate sound stage and unparalleled clarity.



Just add the optional MDC2 BluOS-D module to enhance the C379 with Dirac Live, BluOS, Apple AirPlay 2, two-way aptX HD Bluetooth, and more. With BluOS, the C379 can be connected to a home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet to experience the most advanced multi-room wireless music management system with 24 bit/192kHz resolution. Controlled through the BluOS app for smartphone, tablet, or desktop, BluOS manages your digital music collection and connects to over 20 high-quality streaming music services including Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz, Amazon Music, Spotify, and more.
