ATTENTION!
Please make all connections to your C720BEE receiver with the unit
powered off or unplugged. (It is also advisable to power-down or unplug
all associated components while making or breaking any signal or AC
power connections.)
PORTUGUÊS
SVENSKA
1-2 FM & AM ANTENNA: The supplied wire "dipole" FM antenna will
connect to the FM connector using the supplied "balun" adapter. It
will usually work best when mounted on a vertical surface such as a
wall, with arms fully outstretched forming a horizontal "T"
perpendicular to the origin point of the signal. Experiment with
placement and orientation of to yield the clearest sound and lowest
background noise. In areas of difficult FM reception an external FM
antenna can yield dramatic gains in quality; consult your NAD audio
specialist or a professional antenna installer.
The AM loop antenna supplied with the C720BEE (or a suitable
replacement) is required for AM reception. Open the clip terminal
levers insert the wire and close, ensuring that the lever locks the wire
in place. Testing different positions for the antenna may improve
reception; vertical orientation will usually produce the best results.
Antenna proximity to large metal objects (appliances; radiators) may
impair reception, as will attempts to lengthen the wire to the loop.
6
NOTE:
An external AM antenna can improve long-distance reception
substantially; consult your NAD audio specialist or a professional
antenna installer. Do not connect anything other than a loop antenna
to the AM ANTENNA terminal. Do not remove the AM loop antenna.
3 SPEAKERS A & B - Speaker terminals for speakers with an impedance
of 4 ohms or more. Connect the right speaker to the terminals
marked 'R +' and 'R-' ensuring that the 'R+' is connected to the '+'
terminal on your loudspeaker and the 'R-' is connected to the
loudspeaker's '-' terminal. Connect the terminals marked 'L+' and 'L' to the left speaker in the same way. Always use heavy duty (16
gauge; 1.5mm, or thicker) stranded wire to connect loudspeakers to
your NAD C720BEE. The high-current binding post terminals can be
used as a screw terminal for cables terminating in spade or pin
sockets or for cables with bare wire ends.
BARE WIRES AND PIN CONNECTORS
Bare wires and pin sockets should be inserted into the hole in the
shaft of the terminal. Unscrew the speaker terminal's plastic bushing
until the hole in the screw shaft is revealed. Insert the pin or bare
cable end into the hole and secure the cable by tightening down the
terminal's bushing. Ensure bare wire from the speaker cables does
not touch the back panel or another socket. Ensure that there is only
1/2" (1cm) of bare cable or pin and no loose strands of speakers wire.
POWERDRIVE
To meet the diverse requirements of high current drive and high
dynamic power, our patented PowerDrive amplifier circuit will build
further on our reputation for amazingly effective power. By adding a
second high-voltage rail to our well regulated high-current power
supply, we get an "overdrive" that can nearly double the continuous
power on a short term dynamic power basis. This is a further
development and refinement of our renowned Power Envelope
circuit, utilized by NAD in the 80's and 90's. PowerDrive differs from
Power Envelope in that it offers greater amplifier stability and low
impedance drive capability, resulting in less distortion when driving
real speakers with real program material.
4 SWITCHED AC OUTLET - The AC power cord of another component
may be plugged into this accessory outlet. Components plugged into
this outlet will be switched On and Off by the VACATION SWITCH on
the rear panel.
NOTE:
The total power consumption of any components connected to the
AC outlets may not exceed 100 Watts.
5 AC line cord - Plug the AC power cord into a live AC wall socket.
Make sure all connections have been made before connecting to
mains.
6. VACATION SWITCH ON/OFF The VACATION switch is the master
on/off control for the amplifier. When the switch is in the ON state
the amplifier is in standby as shown by the amber LED above the
power switch on the front panel. If the amplifier will not be used for
an extended period of time, switch the VACATION switch to the OFF
position.

ABOUT THE C 720BEE
NOTE:
Always turn the amplifier off before connecting or disconnecting
anything from to Pre-Out and Main-In sockets.
10 PRE-OUT - Connections to an external power amplifier or processor,
such as a surround-sound decoder. In normal use these should be
connected to the Main-In sockets (No. 10) with the links supplied. To
connect your NAD C720BEE to external processor or amplifier
sections first remove these links. Use a twin RCA-to-RCA lead to
connect to the left and right 'Audio Input' of the Power amp or
processor to the Pre Out sockets.
NOTE
The Pre-Out output signal will be affected by the NAD C720BEE's
volume and tone control settings, always turn the amplifier off before
connecting or disconnecting anything from to Pre-Out and Main-In
sockets.
18 +12V TRIGGER OUT - The 12V TRIGGER OUTPUT is used for
controlling external equipment that is equipped with a 12V trigger
input. This output will be 12V when the C720BEE is on and 0V when
the unit is either off or in standby. This output can drive a load up to
50mA at 12V.
The plug required is a standard 3.5mm Mini-Jack plug ("mono"): The
tip is the live or + connection, the shaft of the input jack is the 12Vtrigger - or ground connection.
NOTES:
Check the specifications of the Trigger input terminal on the other
components to ensure these are compatible with the C 720BEE's
12Vtrigger output. NAD components equipped with 12V input
triggers are fully compatible with the C720BEE's 12V output trigger.
Before making any connections to any 12V trigger input or output,
make sure all components are disconnected from the AC mains.
Failure to observe the above may result in damage to the C720BEE or
any ancillary components attached to it. If in doubt over the
connections, installation and operation of the 12V trigger output
consult your NAD dealer.

RCA-to-RCA lead to connect the CD player's left and right 'Audio
Outputs' to this input. The NAD C720BEE only accepts analogue
signals from your CD player.
ITALIANO
7 SOFT CLIPPING™ - When an amplifier is driven beyond its specified
power output, a hard, distorted sound can be heard on very loud
sounds. This is caused by the amplifier cutting off or 'hard clipping'
the peaks of sound that was not designed to reproduce. The NAD
Soft Clipping circuit gently limits the output of the system to minimize
audible distortion if the amplifier is overdriven. If your listening
involves moderate power levels you may leave the Soft Clipping
switch to Off. If you are likely to play at high levels, that could stretch
the amplifier's power capability, then switch Soft Clipping On
PORTUGUÊS
11 RECORD OUT/ZONE 2 - Connect the left and right 'Audio Input' of

1 POWER ON & OFF - The NAD C720BEE remote has a separate On and
Off button. This can be particularly useful to keep components within
a system "insync": This way all components will switch to stand-by
when Off is pressed or switch to operating mode when On is pressed,
instead of some components switching On when the amplifier is
switched to Stand-by. (Note that the other components have to be
capable of responding to the separate On and Off commands as
well). Press the ON button to switch the unit from Stand-by to the
operating mode; The Stand-by indicator (Fig. 2; No. 2) will turn from

NOTES: The remote control handset supplied with the C720BEE is of a
universal NAD type, designed to operate several NAD models. Some
buttons on this handset are inoperative as the functions aren't
supported by the C720BEE. The Video 2 and Video 3 input selector
buttons (inside section No.2) on the remote control handset are
inoperative in the case of the C720BEE.
Direct sunlight or very bright ambient lighting may affect the
operating range and angle for the remote control handset.
LISTENING TO RADIO
The C720BEE's internal AM/FM tuner offers very high quality sound from
radio broadcasts. Note that reception and sound quality will always be
dependent to a degree on the type of antenna(s) used, as well as
proximity to the broadcast origin, geography, and weather conditions.
ABOUT ANTENNAS
The supplied ribbon-wire FM antenna can be connected to the rear-panel
FM-antenna input using the 'balun' adapter included, and should be fully
extended to form a "T". This folded-dipole antenna will usually work
best oriented vertically, with the arms of its "T" full outstretched and
arranged perpendicular to the origin of the desired broadcast. There are
no 'rules,' however, and experimenting freely with antenna placement
and orientation may yield the clearest sound and lowest background
noise. In areas of poor FM reception, an exterior FM antenna can improve
performance dramatically. If radio listening is important to you, consider
consulting an antenna installation professional to optimize your system.
The supplied AM 'loop' antenna will usually provide adequate reception.
However, an exterior AM antenna can be used to improve reception;
consult an antenna professional for more information.
SELECTING THE RADIO
Press the AM or FM key on the C720BEE front panel, the SR-5's [TUNER]
key to select the receiver's radio mode. Each subsequent press of [TUNER]
key will toggle the unit between its FM and AM bands.
TUNING STATIONS
Press TUNE on the front panel momentarily to step up or down between
FM or AM frequencies. Press and hold TUNE for more than 2 seconds to
search up or down; the C720BEE's tuner will stop at the next sufficiently
strong signal it encounters. Pressing the either TUNE key momentarily
during the search process will stop the search. From the SR-5 press
[TUNE]; hold in to automatically search, press momentarily to perform
slow manual search.
SR-5 DIRECT FREQUENCY ENTRY
With the SR-5 you can now directly enter the frequency of the radio
station. When entering digits, more than two will force the direct entry
mode. Pressing ENTER will lock the frequency as seen on the C720BEE's
VFD. For example; pressing 1021 will force the direct entry to 102.1.
PORTUGUÊS
SETTING RADIO PRESETS
The C720BEE can store as many as 40 of your favorite radio stations for
immediate recall; 30 FM stations and 10 AM. To store a radio preset, first
tune the desired frequency (see above), then press the front panel
MEMORY key. Press either PRESET key to select the preset number to be
assigned. Then press the MEMORY key once again.
NOTE: The Radio Presets must be stored from the front panel; this setup
function is not accessible from the SR-5 remote.

CHOOSING THE BLEND MODE
Weak or remote stereo radio stations are sometimes received with noise
and hiss as the antenna signal is too weak. Switching the tuner to mono
will reduce the amount of noise and hiss but at the expense of any stereo
information. The NAD Blend feature will allow you to reduce the amount
noise and hiss but still retain some level of stereo separation, instead of
mono.
The Blend button toggles between engaging or disengaging the Blend
feature; when engaged, "BLEND" lights up in the VFD.
ABOUT USER NAMES
You can assign an eight character "User Name" to each radio preset,
which will show in the front-panel readout whenever that preset is
recalled.
ENTERING USER NAMES
For example, to name a radio preset "NEWS": recall the desired radio
preset, and then press the front-panel MEMORY key once, then within
five (5) seconds, press the front-panel DISPLAY key; the readout shows a
blinking box. Use the TUNE keys to select the first character of the name
("N" from the alphabetic list; press either PRESET key to select the
character and move to the next position. Repeat this process for each
character in sequence; press the MEMORY key again to store the User
Name and exit the text-entry mode.

NOTE: The one can store the same channel in two preset locations; one
with FM Blend On, and with FM Blend Off.
DEUTSCH
NOTE: The one can store the same channel in two preset locations; one
with FM Mute On, and with FM Mute Off.
NOTE: Toggling between FM Mute on or off also defeats the C720BEE's
FM muting circuit. If you wish to listen to a particularly weak or distant
broadcast, toggle off the FM Mute and tune it manually.
VIEW RDS TEXT
When an RDS-enabled FM broadcast is tuned, after a brief delay the
"RDS" symbol will light in the C720BEE's front-panel readout and the
readout's character section will show its station-name (PS) text:
"ROCK101," for example. Press the front-panel DISPLAY key to toggle
the readout between this and the station's radio text (RT) readout, if any,
which might scroll song- or artist-name, or any other text of the station's
choosing.
NEDERLANDS
CHOOSING THE FM MUTE / MODE
The front-panel FM MUTE/Mode key is a dual-purpose control. First, it
"toggles" the C720BEE between stereo mute and unmuted stereo
reception (assuming that a multiplex-stereo station of sufficient strength
is tuned). FM Mute eliminates noise from "empty" FM frequencies but
also mutes very weak or distant stations; it also causes the search
function to skip them. Toggling off the FM Mute will result in reduced
noise if the FM station signal level is less than the FM Stereo threshold
(since mono FM is inherently less noise-prone), though at the sacrifice of
the stereo effect.
ABOUT RDS
The Radio Data System (RDS) permits compatible FM receivers to display
text determined by the broadcaster. The C720BEE supports two RDS
modes, station-name (PS mode) and radio-text (RT mode). However, not
every FM station incorporates RDS in its broadcast signal; in most areas
you will find from one to several RDS enabled stations, but it is by no
means impossible that your favorite stations will not be broadcasting RDS
data.
ESPAÑOL
SELECTING RADIO PRESETS
Press either PRESET key on the front panel to step up or down between
presets; press and hold either PRESET key to "scroll" continuously up or
down. The SR-5 remote's [PRESET] keys work similarly.
