Billed as a budget reference amplifier, NAD's C316BEEV2 integrated amp holds a cherished spot in the lineup, as one of the few remaining pure-analog offerings (along with the C268/C275BEE power amps). This honest 40-watt amp is the modern equal to the integrated amps that made NAD famous the world over in the late 1970's and early 80's. It has superb sound quality and an excellent phono stage. And a remote control. One of our very favourites.
