Expert review by: (



This NAD preamp is best paired with the C275BEE power amp to create an amplifier that's got sonic muscle and subtlety to boot

Sonic muscle, authority and scale; feature list; well-judged presentation

Not the last word in transparency at this price; unimpressive feel and finish for the money

Pleasing dynamics and bass You can add strong dynamics and seismic bass to the list of positives, and other qualities such as tonal balance and stereo imaging are good enough to avoid serious criticism.

Dynamic sound, full bass, good imaging and seperation. A good performing pre-amp for sure, I've heard better for sure but for the price I paid for it, can't complain.

The NAD C165BEE pre amp and C275BEE power amp is an impressive combination. The sound picture is clear well detailed and the 150watts per channel will drive even the most difficult speakers with ease. Obviously, the overall sound will depend on source...

A bit on the pricey side, but no real complaints
