C 298 – Powerful. Efficient. Eigentakt™.

NAD has introduced some of the most innovative amplifier technology in its nearly 50-year history, starting with the 3020 on through such cutting-edge models as the 2200, the 208, and the M2. Now we are making the amazing new Eigentakt™ (self-clocking) technology, recently introduced to the world in the EISA Award winning Masters M33, available to a wider audience with the very affordable C 298 Stereo Power Amplifier. We are thrilled to provide this unprecedented level of performance. This new NAD classic amp boasts 185 Watts per channel into 8 Ohms and can be bridged to 620W X 1 into 8 Ohms to create a huge Monoblock. A perfect companion to the critically acclaimed C 658 BluOS Streaming DAC or as an additional two channel amp for reference home theater systems, the C 298 is available now to order and will begin shipping in October.

Perfect NAD combo: C 298 anchoring C 658 BluOS Streaming DAC/Preamp.


SOPHISTICATED EFFICIENT POWER 

NAD has moved away from the old fashioned and very power-hungry linear power supplies and Class AB output stages that waste nearly half of the energy consumed, producing heat rather than sound. Instead, the company has developed even better performing circuits based on switch mode power supplies and Class D output stages. Once thought to be inferior to traditional topologies, NAD’s advanced work in this area has created some of the best performing amplifiers regardless of basic design principle. These new designs are very linear over a wide bandwidth and provide consistent performance into all speaker loads, providing a dramatic advance over previous models.

NAD C 298 - Hi-Fi Class

The generously dimensioned power supply easily allows for 340W Continuous into 4 Ohms and over 570W of instantaneous power for short term musical transients. Innovative Asymmetrical PowerDrive, with its vast reserves of dynamic power, fully utilizes every last watt to accurately reproduce musical transients without distortion or compression. This highly efficient supply also provides near perfect regulation of voltage across a wide range of conditions and provides a solid noise-free foundation for the amplifying stages. 

PURIFI EIGENTAKTTM AMPLIFIER TECHNOLOGY

Purifi is a Danish technology company that has brought together several of the industry’s leading engineers to apply advanced mathematical modelling to solve the last remaining limitations of audio amplifiers. While there are many good sounding amplifiers on the market today, Purifi has taken a fresh look at every aspect of amplifier performance and found many seemingly small non-linearities that can make a dramatic difference in the overall sound. This return to first principles has resulted in a stunningly simple approach to some remarkably complex problems.

The Eigentakt modules are manufactured by NAD under license from Purifi, allowing NAD to optimise these specifically in combination with the custom designed power supply and input stages of the C 298.

FLEXIBLE CONNECTIVITY

The C 298 may appear to be just a basic Power Amp but NAD engineers have carefully thought through all the use cases typically encountered to create rich feature content. Selectable balanced inputs make the C 298 a natural for studio use or connection to High End Preamps and Processors. These inputs include a trim control useful for matching to other components. 

Rear Panel Features

A line out allows further addition of power on the same channel for additional speakers or subwoofers. Auto-sense with selectable threshold is perfect for automating complex systems or hiding the amp out of sight in a cabinet. NAD even included a Ground Lug that can be very useful for eliminating ground loops and noise in complex multi-unit systems. Added to all this connectivity is a Bridge Switch that turns the C 298 into an amazingly powerful Monoblock Amplifier. 

The new NAD C 298 is a compelling upgrade for virtually any advanced HiFi system and its robust power with upgrade flexibility will drive the most sophisticated and advanced loudspeakers on the market.
