The audio world has shifted. Where once available solely on discs, the best quality of music is now delivered over the internet. Not only does it sound better, but entire catalogues of recorded music are more accessible than ever before. Curated playlists make music selection and discovery easy and fun, while multi-room wireless audio multiplies the possibilities. The NAD C 700 combines all of this goodness with state-of-the-art amplification to make it an all-in-one solution that will transport you to your favourite musical destination.
 

BluOS MAKES THE C700 SOMETHING SPECIAL

BluOS is the most advanced network streaming and multi-room operating system available. Part of a growing ecosystem of compatible products, BluOS tightly integrates hardware and software for an unbeatable user experience. The only wireless high-resolution multi-room system available today, BluOS supports the new standard for high res streaming, Master Quality Authenticated (MQA). With support for over 15 free and paid subscription services, as well as supporting locally stored music libraries, BluOS makes the C 700 incredibly versatile. Adding additional rooms is easy and affordable using Bluesound’s all-in-one speakers and streamers, or you can add premium components from NAD and third-party brands to provide amazing sound throughout your home.
 

UNDERSTATED ELEGANCE

With Industrial Design by award winning design firm DF-ID, the C 700 takes a minimalist theme to new levels of elegance. The slender proportions are enhanced by authentic materials including solid brushed aluminium and smooth glass. The high-resolution colour display beckons with beautiful album artwork. It's completely operable using the BluOS app on your desktop, Android or iOS device, or you can use the optional RC1 Controller (available separately). The C700 can even learn commands from your existing remote control.

UNMATCHED PERFORMANCE

The highly efficient UcD amplifier design is renowned for ultra-low noise and distortion through the entire frequency range, regardless of the loudspeaker load. Employing NAD’s proven HybridDigital UcD amplifier technology, the C 700 can deliver 2× 80 watts of continuous power and 2× 120 watts of instantaneous power, for effortless music reproduction.

HANDS-FREE VOICE CONTROL

Add the BluOS Voice Skill inside the Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant app and enjoy hands-free voice control of personal music collections, streaming services and more using a list of simple streamlined commands. Using an Echo or Google Home device you can ask Alexa or Google Assistant to play songs from your local library, queue up saved playlists, adjust the volume in different rooms, or ask what’s playing in the Kitchen. Want to try it out? No problem. Download the Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant app, activate the skill, tap the speech bubble in the bottom drawer of the Amazon Alexa app and say anything from the list of commands.
 

Note: Not suitable as the ‘master’ unit in a BluOS wireless fixed theatre group. Please see here for a guide to building the ultimate wireless home theatre system, and here for more information on how to configure your theatre group in BluOS.

MUSIC MEANT TO BE HEARD, NOT SEEN

The NAD C 700 represents a new kind of high-end audio system that is luxurious and smart, but very discreet. It can perform the same functions that once required a rack full of components and in many ways is superior. The elegant form factor takes up very little space and can even be hidden away, but the beautiful design and colourful display will encourage you to place the C 700 front and centre.
