As we move into more sophisticated home and garage setups, I want to have a wide range of audio equipment we can offer our customers. Kyle (our Design Director) and his team have had the opportunity to work with some fantastic people with unique needs; my objective is to position us to be prepared for these needs.
The NAD CI 720 will come in handy for these advanced audio setups. So what is it? Simply, it’s a network stereo zone amplifier. Think of it as a tiny powernode that you can group together with other tiny powernodes to make multiple zones - an add-on amplifier for a vast network of speaker zones. An example would be a grocery store or a big house that has speakers all over the place.
The NAD CI 720 offers several benefits for custom integration systems, including:
- Compatibility: It’s compatible with a wide range of audio and video sources, making it a versatile solution for custom integration systems.
- Inputs and Outputs: It features multiple inputs and outputs, allowing easy integration with other components in the system.
- Ease of Use: Designed for easy installation and use, allowing for fast and efficient setup of custom integration systems.
- Quality Sound: This thing delivers clear and accurate sound reproduction for an immersive audio experience.
- Customizable: It’s highly customizable, allowing for easy integration into different custom integration systems. This helps ensure that the system is tailored to meet the specific needs of each user.
I know that all sounds like a bunch of fancy talk, but if you enjoy listening to high-res music and want to listen to it in any room of your home, this is the multi-room solution you want. Lag-free digital audio that lets you connect audio sources directly via USB, optical, and analog RCA inputs.
With 60 watts per channel and up to 165 watts of Dynamic Power on tap, the CI 720’s integrated HybridDigital™ amp can drive any speaker to lifelike sound levels. By focusing on improving musical performance while consuming less power, NAD has taken CI amplification to new lows, with lower distortion, noise, and power consumption.
Our NAD catalog is growing and I love it. I can’t wait to see what designs my guys come up with using this multizone solution.
