NAD's Most Versatile Amplifier Ever with Chromecast built-in and Hybrid Digital Technology

The C 338 adds big sound to your favourite music sources and brings incredible flexibility to any stereo system. With Spotify Connect®, Bluetooth®, and the first-ever hi-fi amplifier to have built-in Chromecast®, the C 338 allows you to stream and cast music directly from any music streaming app, letting you enjoy your music wirelessly. Add a turntable using the phono input and experience the warmth of vinyl collections with the room-filling sound of NAD’s HybridDigital amp technology. Power, volume, source selection, and device settings are all controlled using the intuitive interface of the NAD Remote App for iOS and Android.

 

Getting the Basics Right

Built with NAD’s renowned music-first approach to audio architecture and amp design, the C 338 is equipped with the most advanced components commonly found in NAD’s class-leading line of amplifiers. Always starting with the details you can hear and advancing from there, NAD develops low-noise circuitry with the precision and stability to deliver incredible, near-zero distortion sound for the most difficult speakers.

HybridDigital Amp Technology

The search for a high-performance Class D solution led NAD to HybridDigital, an innovative amplifier technology that uses a variable modulation frequency to bring out the life-like qualities of music, while reducing distortion under every operating condition. This highly optimised design gives phenomenal performance to the C 338 amplifier, both measured and subjective.

Efficient Class D Power

NAD has worked tirelessly to create the best performing Class D amplifiers that are energy efficient and produce beautiful sound—not heat—regardless of basic design principles. Using advanced measurements and data, NAD developed the C 338’s highly efficient power supply with a customised Hypex® UCD output stage to pump out 160 watts continuously and over 300 watts instantaneously to meet the demands of the most dynamic music. This new design is very linear over a wide bandwidth and provides consistent, noise-free performance for the amplifying stages with near perfect regulation of voltage.

Always Ready for Streaming

The C 338 has Chromecast built-in so you can cast music, tunes, podcasts, and playlists from your favourite apps on your phone, tablet or laptop to your stereo system. Spotify Connect® lets you discover millions of songs and stream them directly to your C 338 using the Spotify® app for a rich, wireless music experience. With the added flexibility of Bluetooth®, your music streaming possibilities are truly limitless with the C 338.

Built-in Phono Stage for Vinyl Listening

Using a MM phono stage and an innovative low-noise circuit path, the C 338 can reproduce the warmth of LPs with accurate RIAA equalisation and control the infrasonic noise that is in all recordings, without ever affecting the bass response.

Flexible Connectivity

With a wide array of connections, including a separate headphone amplifier that can drive high-impedance studio monitor headphones, the C 338 is ready for any type of listening. Line inputs can accommodate all kinds of analogue source components, offering ideal input impedance with linear ultra-low noise buffer amplifiers to preserve the musicality of recordings. Also connect a subwoofer with low impedance line outputs and extend the versatility of this budget-friendly, do-it-all amplifier.

Smart and connected

The NAD C 338 integrated amplifier lets you connect digital, analog, and even wireless music sources. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you connect it to your home network so you can easily access your digital music library and stream internet radio. Support for Spotify® Connect and Google Cast (now called Chromecast built-in) gives you near limitless music options. You can also stream music from any Bluetooth enabled device, like a smartphone or tablet. NAD's remote app gives you convenient control over your system from compatible Apple® and Android™ devices.
 

Clean amplification for your speakers and headphones

The C 338 uses an advanced Class D amplifier design for consistent performance. Its highly efficient power supply provides a noise-free foundation, generating huge power with negligible distortion — up to 1000 watts instantaneously to faithfully reproduce the energy and excitement of all your favourite music. A built-in high-performance headphone amplifier can drive even the most demanding studio monitor headphones.
