NAD C165BEE Preamp


Bjørn Erik Edvardsen has long been associated with the success of NAD components. Recent development in new semi-conductors and improved production techniques such as surface mount devices (SMDs) have created opportunities for BEE to improve performance far beyond expectation when compared to previous products in this price range. Hi-Fi Choice said, “these NAD’s (C165BEE preamp along with a NAD C245 power amp) seem to lift performance to another level, especially with music that moves quite swiftly. Changing textures and harmonies are beautifully reproduced and rapid melodic passages are exquisitely clear.” The NAD C165BEE Preamp is well equipped: MC/MM phono, six line levels inputs, sub and 2 preamp outs, Independent headphones Amp. It is a Stand Out with Performance that Outclasses its rivals. Dimensions HxWxD: 17.2 x 3x 11.25″. Weight: 13.3 lbs.
