NAD C 3050 Integrated Hybrid Digital Amplifier

Product Descriptions

NAD C 3050 Integrated Hybrid Digital Amplifier

Honoring the Past

The integrated amplifier's vintage design pays homage to the golden age of hi-fi and includes LED-illuminated left and right VU meters. It also has Airplay 2, two-way AptX HD Bluetooth, HDMI eARC, hi-res multi-room streaming, the ability to decode MQA studio master recordings, and Dirac Room Correction. A dedicated headphone amplifier and phono stage are additional inputs and outputs. It has a high-resolution audiophile-grade DAC and is powered by the most recent NAD Hybrid Digital amplifier, which is rated at 100 watts per channel of Full Disclosure Power.

Welcoming the Future

The C 3050 features the most advanced iteration of NAD's modular design construction technology. By putting an MDC2 module into a slot at the rear of the component, owners can add new features and functions with MDC2. MDC2 has an entirely new architecture that permits two-way communication between the host component and the module. The MDC2 BluOS-D, an optional upgrade for the C 3050, offers two cutting-edge features: BluOS high-resolution multi-room music streaming and Dirac Live room correction.

Tuning the Environment

The listening room itself is the weakest link in most sound systems but Dirac Live allows the C 3050 to overcome it. Dirac Live plays test tones via your speakers while utilizing a calibrated microphone and a software running on a smart device or desktop computer. It then analyzes the results and builds filters to fix issues like standing waves and unwanted reflections. You'll experience significantly better bass definition, improved clarity and tone correctness, and superior imaging when Dirac Live is activated. Dirac Live functions on all sources linked to the C 3050 because of MDC2's two-way connections.

A Musical World

The MDC2 BluOS-D in the C 3050 connects to your home network by Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet and provides you with access to almost all of the music ever recorded through the acclaimed BluOS multi-room music management system. You can cue up music from more than 20 well-known streaming services using the simple-to-use BluOS software, including those that provide lossless and high-res audio, such Amazon Music Ultra HD, Deezer, Qobuz, and Tidal. The C 3050 offers high-res audio up to 24-bit/192kHz, much as all BluOS-capable products. Additionally, it has MQA decoding and rendering capabilities enabling Tidal playback that is of studio quality. BluOS additionally enables you to play music from your personal digital library and gives you access to thousands of internet radio stations.

Apple Airplay 2 is supported by the MDC2 BluOS-D, allowing you to stream audio from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to the C 3050. Tidal Connect and Spotify Connect are also supported. The apps for those services allow you to choose music, which can then be instantly transferred for listening on the C 3050. Utilizing Apple Siri, Google Assistant, or Amazon Alexa, you can even use voice control to control playing (via Airplay 2). Additionally, an IR remote control is provided.

Surrounding Music

The C 3050 integrated amplifier can be used with the MDC2 BluOS-D to create a whole-home audio system with up to 64 zones, each having its own source and volume control. You can join zones together and play the same music simultaneously, or you can play different music in each zone separately. The BluOS-D may broadcast music from any source connected to the C 3050 to BluOS-enabled components in different rooms thanks to MDC2's bidirectional architecture.

Everything is Connected

The C 3050 is capable of accommodating all of your source components because to its extensive array of digital and analogue inputs. Vinyl enthusiasts will value the C 3050's MM phono stage's extreme low noise level. An HDMI eARC interface allows the C 3050 to function as the hub of a two- or 2.1-channel home theatre system for watching movies and TV shows. Line-level analogue, coaxial digital, and optical digital inputs are also available on the C 3050.

The C 3050 contains two speaker terminal sets, a subwoofer output, and a separate headphone amplifier. Additionally, it has two-way Bluetooth aptX HD, allowing you to stream music from a mobile device to the amplifier or from the amplifier to a pair of wireless headphones. The C 3050 can be used just as a preamp and a separate power amplifier can be added thanks to the pre-out/main-in connections. There is an IR input and a 12V trigger for bespoke integrators.

A Piece of Heritage

The C 3050 Stereophonic Amplifier pays tribute to NAD's 50 years of innovation in amplifier design by fusing the company's recognizable sound with a vintage aesthetic modelled after the renowned 3030 amplifiers. No audiophile could have imagined having these capabilities fifty years ago thanks to its cutting-edge engineering.
