IDENTIFICATION OF CONTROLS
REAR PANEL
The SOFT CLIPPING indicator on the front panel will illuminate when the
C 326BEE is in Soft Clipping mode. Refer also to the item below about
“POWERDRIVE”.
POWERDRIVE
The C 326BEE uses NAD’s proprietary PowerDrive™ amplifier technology
for all channels to preserve accurate, linear reproduction regardless
of the loudspeaker. This uniquely efficient power-supply topology
provides the real-world benefits of high dynamic power that remains
uncompromised by low-impedance speakers.
By adding a second high-voltage rail to our well regulated highcurrent power supply, we get an “overdrive” that can nearly double the
continuous power on a short term dynamic power basis. PowerDrive
offers greater amplifier stability and low impedance drive capability,
resulting in less distortion when driving real speakers with real program
material.
ENGLISH
FRANÇAIS
The C 326BEE is designed to produce optimum sound quality when
connected to speakers with impedances within its operating range.
Please make sure that all the speakers are rated 4 ohms minimum per
speaker.
15POWER SWITCH: The POWER switch supplies the master AC mains
power for the C 326BEE. When this switch is at ON position, the
C 326BEE is in standby mode as shown by the amber status condition
of the standby LED. Toggle the front panel’s STANDBY button to switch
ON the C 326BEE or back to standby mode. If you intend not to use the
C 326BEE for long periods of time (such as when on vacation), switch
the POWER switch to the OFF position. When the POWER switch is at
OFF position, the front panel power button or SR 8 remote control
cannot activate the C 326BEE.
ESPAÑOL
11 SOFT CLIPPING™: Enables NAD’s proprietary Soft Clipping circuitry
on all channels. At [ON] position, Soft Clipping gently limits the output
of the C 326BEE to minimize audible distortion should the amplifier be
over-driven. Soft Clipping may simply be left ON at all times to reduce
the likelihood of audible distortion from excessive volume settings.
However, for critical listening and to preserve optimum dynamics, you
may wish to defeat it by setting this switch to “OFF” position.
Always use heavy duty (16 gauge; 1.5mm, or thicker) stranded wire to
connect loudspeakers to your C 326BEE. 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.
16AC MAINS INPUT: The C 326BEE comes supplied with a separate AC Mains
cable. Before connecting the cable to a live wall socket, ensure that it is
firmly connected to the C 326BEE’s AC Mains input socket first. Connect
only to the prescribed AC Outlet, i.e., 120V 60 Hz (120 V version model only)
or 230V 50 Hz (230 V vesion model only). Always disconnect the AC Mains
cable plug from the live wall socket first, before disconnecting the cable from
