NAD Electronics Launch CI 8-150 DSP Custom Install Amplifier at ISE 2020

NAD Electronics is launching its CI 8-150DSP custom install amplifier and celebrates the availability of its T 778 AVR at ISE 2020.

The NAD CI 8-150 DSP (£3,249) has landed at the Integrated Services Europe show ahead of its slated April availability.

Thanks to a customised version of the proven nCore output stage, the new 1U amplifier delivers a “conservative” 8 X 150 watts per channel @ 8 ohms, hence its name. The CI 8-150 DSP is also bridgeable which enables it to push out 4 x 365 watts per channel also @ 8 ohms. As well as a dual bus system and analogue inputs, the CI 8-150 also offers optical and coax inputs.

Additionally, the CI 8-150 DSP allows installers to program and control a variety of functions which can be accessed through a web browser. The custom web UI can manage DSP calibration and IP control as well as offering several helpful diagnostic features.

NAD promises “audiophile-level performance, capable of offering highly detailed sound to the most demanding reference loudspeakers” from the 1U rack space amp.

Joe de Jesus, Lenbrook's Product Manager for CI, told StereoNET:

NAD's newest CI 8-150 distribution amplifier highlights one of the brand's strongest features which of course is our performance amplifier platforms. The brand has a stellar reputation for rock-solid amplification and a tonal balance that seems to shake hands with virtually any speaker it powers. Our clients can expect the same exacting standard. For example, this new CI 8-150 DSP adheres to the same stringent sonic tests as our best traditional amplifiers.
