NAD C 316BEE: Dynamic, pure and powerful
The NAD C 316BEEE is a high-performance integrated amp with much of the same technology found in NAD's higher end models.
"The C 316BEE is an absolute barnstormer of an amplifier, mixing surprising might with a rich and easy flowing sound that is impossible not to like. This amp rocks…"
- 40 watts per channel continuous power; 100 watts per channel Dynamic
- NAD’s proprietary PowerDrive™ Circuit delivers the high current drive needed for complex loudspeaker loads along with high levels of undistorted dynamic power
- Standby power consumption is less than 1 watt!

NAD’s C 316BEE Integrated Amplifier is the successor to the scene-stealing C 315BEE, an award-winning design that exceeded all expectations. The brand-new C 316BEE provides improved power efficiency, a healthy dose of “green” attributes, and serious musical performance — and all at an entry-level price point.
With class-leading specifications for noise, distortion, power, stereo separation and volume control tracking, the C 316BEE sets new benchmarks for performance, both measured and audible. The sonic result is a relaxed and inviting sound that digs out the subtle details in your favorite recordings and presents them across a panoramic stereo sound stage.
Innovative twist on proven technology
Proprietary PowerDrive™ Circuit offers a remarkable combination of high current drive needed for complex loudspeaker loads combined with high levels of undistorted dynamic power. Bjørn Erik Edvardsen, NAD’s Director of Advanced Development, developed a simplified version of PowerDrive for the C 316BEE.
Thanks to its innovative technology, standby power consumption is less than 1 watt. The C 316BEE uses lead-free silver solder and is constructed free of hazardous materials.
True to NAD’s enviable reputation for creating some of the best performing budget amplifiers of all time, the C 316BEE delivers huge performance without the huge price tag.
Dynamic power reserves
Continuous power is a conservative 40 watts and dynamic power, which is more important for music listening, is remarkably more than 100 watts! This is far more usable power on tap than other amps at this price point.
Keeping it simple
The C 316BEE has everything necessary for musical enjoyment, yet it is refreshingly limited to the essentials: six inputs, one set of speakers, a headphone jack and full function remote control.
While the C 316BEE embodies simplicity, it is far from a ‘stripped down’ product. It is fully equipped to be the control center for a high performance music system.
