THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING NAD.
The NAD C 390DD is a new concept in amplification exemplified by
leading edge audio system architecture. The C 390DD has no analog
stages in its signal path, keeping music in the digital domain right up to
the speaker output. All preamplifier functions are executed in the digital
domain without the phase shift, noise and distortion that plague all
analog designs. The C 390DD has small footprint, large power, low energy
consumption, future-proof upgradability, software defined operation,
backward compatibility, easy integration and a new high definition system
architecture. The C 390DD’s 35 bit architecture and 108MHz master clock
make it as one of the most accurate DAC technologies available.
As with all our products, NAD’s “Music First” design philosophy guided the
C 390DD design that it can confidently promise you both state-of-the-art
technology and audiophile-quality music listening for years to come.
We encourage you to take a few minutes now to read right through this

BI-WIRING
Most modern high quality loudspeakers offer the option of Biwiring. This separates the HF crossover from the LF crossover and
offers enhanced performance by preventing LF returned currents
from affecting the HF performance. If you decide to bi-wire, be sure
to remove the “links” at the loudspeaker that connect the LF and
HF sections (these are provided for convenience when single wire
connection is used). Your loudspeaker instruction manual should cover
this subject as well.
NEDERLANDS
3 DIGITAL AES/EBU
• Digital audio stream from professional audio sources like SACD/CD
Players or processors can be connected to this XLR connector.
• For high-end sources with higher sampling rates like 176kHz and
192kHz, it is highly recommended that such sources be interfaced
with the AES/EBU IN connector. The AES/EBU IN is well suited to
handle such sources with high sampling rate.
There are two sets of SPEAKER output and these are identical in
function (parallel connection) and are provided for ease of Bi-wiring
with heavy audiophile cables. Double check your speaker connections
before powering up the C 390DD.
NOTE
Use stranded wire of at least 16 gauge (AWG). Connections to the
C 390DD can be made with banana-type plugs. Bare wire or pins can
also be used by loosening the terminal’s plastic nut, making a clean,
neat connection, and re-tightening carefully. To minimize the danger
of short circuit, ensure that only 1/2-inch of exposed wire or pin is
employed when connecting.

DD AP‑1 (DIRECT DIGITAL ANALOG-PHONO)
The delivery format of digital content is constantly changing in pure
digital systems like the C 390DD. Each of these formats typically requires
specialized hardware and software, often with licensed IP and content copy
protection.
DD AP‑1 uses high quality Analog-to-Digital conversion to make analog
sources compatible with C 390DD’s pure digital circuitry. The PHONO circuit
has impedance settings for MM and MC with gain automatically set.

DD HDM‑1 (DIRECT DIGITAL HDMI)
The DD HDM‑1 offers three HDMI input terminals and one HDMI output
with video pass through. With DD HDM‑1 installed, the C 390DD can be
the heart of a “Video 2.0” system using the mandatory 2 channel linear
PCM soundtrack from Blu-ray or DVD to make a compelling high definition
theater presentation. DD HDM‑1 is fully 3D video compatible but without
surround sound decoding or video processing.

EQUALIZATION/ROOM EQ
Equalization
}Room EQ
The ROOM EQ feature of the C 390DD is a simple and effective way to tame
standing waves without altering the upper frequency balance of your
loudspeakers.
Imagine a stone dropped into a small pool of water: waves ripple along
the surface in concentric circles until they reach the boundary of the pool,
at which time they are reflected back toward the point where the stone
entered the water. As the reflected wave travels back, it interacts with
the primary waves, causing a pattern of interference. Depending on the
spacing (frequency) of the waves, some will be nulled and some will be
reinforced or doubled in size. In the listening room, a similar pattern of
sound wave nulling or cancellation and sound wave reinforcement also
takes place.
The proximity of stereo loudspeakers to the listening room boundaries
creates “sound reflections” that almost always result in uneven frequency
response at the listening position.
At higher frequencies these reflections can be absorbed and scattered
randomly by the surface textures of wall coverings, drapes and furniture in
the room. But at the lower frequencies, the wave lengths are very large and
they interact with the room boundaries to create “standing waves” that can
alter the sound of music.

EQ
Frequency: There are six filters available in the frequency range where
standing waves typically are a problematical: 40Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz,
180Hz and 240Hz.
Level: The 6 frequency centers in the low bass region can be cut or
slightly boosted to remove the “boom” without reducing the low bass
response. Each filter can be boosted by up to 4dB or cut by up to 12dB in
2dB increments. The reason there is a smaller amount of boost than cut is
because boosting a null frequency actually increases the null making the
problem worse. Fortunately, the ear is less sensitive to sound missing than it
is to sound added. The objective is to tame the “boom” in the bass, resulting
to a much more incisive and realistic sound.

The Setup menu consists of the following selectable and adjustable
parameters – Equalization, Polarity, Listening Mode, Speaker Compensation,
Pre Out/Subwoofer, Soft Clipping, IR Channel and Source Setup.

ROOM EQ TEST SEQUENCE
Our simple solution to this “standing waves” is the Room EQ. We have
devised a very simple test sequence to make the adjustments by ear (or
using an SPL meter). It uses the same concept musicians use to tune a
stringed instrument, with a slight twist: instead of matching frequency or
pitch, we are matching loudness levels.
Allow compensation for recordings that have reversed polarity.
Positive: A positive sine wave at the input remains positive at the
output. Polarity is defaulted to “Positive” setting.
Reversed: A positive sine wave at the input is negative (inverted) or

• Use “Mono” listening mode when the audio source format is mono. The
mono information is replicated on both left and right channels.
• Mono” listening mode is recommended when watching old movies
with mono soundtrack, listening to recorded monaural sound sources
such as AM radio broadcasts or with the foreign language soundtracks
recorded in the left and right channels of some movies.
• Mono is also very helpful when setting up a stereo system to check that
both speakers are connected with correct polarity. Correctly connected
speakers will have a solid center image and strong bass response. If one
speaker has the input connections (+ and -) reversed, the image will be
indistinct and the bass will be reduced and uneven sounding.

Digital impedance compensation filter allows fine tuning of the top

At “On” setting, Digital Soft Clipping gently limits the output of the C 390DD
to minimize audible distortion should the amplifier be overdriven. Soft
Clipping may simply be left “On” at all times to reduce the likelihood of

defaulted to “IR Channel 0” (CH0). As for C 390DD, we will assign it to
“IR Channel 1” (CH1); the same applies to AVR 4.
Set C 390DD and AVR 4 to “CH1” via the following procedure.
SVENSKA
C 390DD
• While at “IR Channel” menu, use the [D/F] to go to “CH1” setting. Press
[S] or [ENTER] to select “CH1”. Press [A] to exit IR Channel selection.
AVR 4
• Press and hold [AMP] in the DEVICE SELECTOR section of the AVR 4.
• While holding down the device button [AMP], press “1”, “1” and “0” using
AVR 4’s numeric buttons.
• Press [ENTER] while still holding down the device button [AMP]. The
AMP device selector will flash once to indicate that the library input is
successful.
With both C 390DD and AVR 4 set to “CH1”, the C 326BEE can now be
remotely controlled independent of the C 390DD.
NOTE
Performing a Factory Reset for C 390DD or AVR 4 will result to a return to
the factory default “IR Channel 0” setting.

Source Setup makes it possible to select a Source and enable or disable it as
desired. The optional NAD DD AP‑1 (Direct Digital Analog Phono) module
must be installed for “Single-ended” and “Balanced” sources to be functional.
The same applies for “Digital HDMI 1”, “Digital HDMI 2” and “Digital HDMI 3”
- the optional NAD DD HDM‑1 (HDMI) module must also be installed. If the
applicable module is not installed, the corresponding sources will not be
available from the Source Setup menu selection.

-9dB to 0dB: Increase or decrease the input signal level from -9dB
to 0dB. This attenuates the signal before the Analog-to-Digital (A/D)
Converter. If the analog input signal sounds “congested” or distorted,
the input should be attenuated.
Fixed: This setting should be selected when the C 390DD is connected
to the output of a preamplifier and is used primarily as a power
amplifier. Output level is fixed and the C 390DD’s Volume Control is
bypassed. This feature is sometimes referred to as “Cinema Bypass”
because it allows the C 390DD to be used for the front channels of a
surround sound system by relegating the volume control function to
the surround processor.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
If LEVEL TRIM will be set to FIXED level, adjust first to MINIMUM level the

PHONO
INFRASONIC FILTER
The output from a record player contains strong but inaudible signals at
infrasonic frequencies (below 10Hz) caused by disc warps, stylus/tone arm
resonance and vibrations reaching the turntable. If these non-musical
signals are amplified at full strength, they may waste amplifier power
and produce excessive woofer cone motion, muddying the sound. The
infrasonic filter attenuates this unwanted contamination.
