NAD C338 Integrated Amplifier

The C 338 adds big sound to your favorite music sources and brings incredible flexibility to any stereo system. The first-ever hi-fi amplifier to have Chromecast built-in, the C 338 allows you to stream and cast music directly from a mobile device or any music streaming app, letting you enjoy your music wirelessly.

With Bluetooth® also natively integrated, the C 338 can wirelessly connect to any smartphone, tablet, or Bluetooth-enabled device within range so you seamlessly stream your favorite music apps or libraries in high-fidelity.

Add a turntable using the phono input and experience the warmth of vinyl collections with the room-filling sound of NAD’s Hybrid Digital™ amp technology. Power, volume, source selection, and device settings are all controlled using the intuitive interface of the NAD Remote App for iOS and Android.
