NAD has introduced its new ultra-powerful 16-channel amplifier that integrates with high-performance audio distribution systems.
Highly versatile and robust, the CI 16-60 is built for the demands of professional installations. Delivering 60-watts per channel of stable and efficient power at 8Ω, each pair of channels is bridgeable to 140 watts per channel if more power is desired.
The hybrid digital amplifier platform delivers stable and efficient power with high current capability all in a compact 2U rack space.
The CI 16-60 DSP uses a customized version of the proven Hypex UcD output stage to deliver great load invariant power with extremely low distortion and noise in the audible range. Every detail of this design has been carefully executed to bring out the best possible performance. Meticulously designed and built to deal with the demands of the custom installation market, the CI 16-60 can effortlessly handle long cable runs and difficult speaker loads.
NAD is keenly aware that reliability is paramount for a professional installer so all models will be based on tried and true amplification platforms delivering stable and reliable performance. The CI 16-60 amplifier is stable at 4Ω impedance. A variety of power-on methods are available as well as an Eco mode setting for minimal power consumption.
It also features IP control, a custom web app managing DSP calibration, input assignments, and more, and offers dual global inputs/outputs as well as handling long cable runs and difficult speaker loads.
