Learn more about the history of NAD Electronics.
NAD Electronics, the audio components manufacturer, is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a documentary film and the launch of a limited edition vintage-inspired amplifier.
The C 3050 LE limited edition amplifier has a retro design with a satin walnut sleeve, dual VU meters and push-button controls. Despite its vintage style, the amplifier features “hi-res multi-room streaming, ability to decode MQA studio master recordings, as well as AirPlay 2, two-way aptX HD Bluetooth, and HDMI eARC”.
Only 1972 units of the amplifier are being manufactured and each one is individually numbered. You can find out more here.
The accompanying documentary film is titled NAD Electronics: 50 Years of Truth in Power. It covers the early days of the brand and its journey to the present day through archival footage and interviews.
“Anything less than a documentary feature film would have short-sold the brand of its influential history, and its fans of key pieces of the story,” explains June Ip, Vice President of Marketing for Lenbrook International. “More importantly, it was the only way we could adequately pay tribute to the foundations laid down by Marty Borish and Bjorn Erik Edvardsen, and their passion project that was NAD, and the impact they had on the hi-fi industry over five decades.”
