NAD Monitor Series 2600A Power Amplifier
NAD (New Audio Dimensions) has been producing amazing quality audio components for over 40 years. Founded by Dr. Martin Borish in 1972, one of the company's first product major success was the Model 3020 receiver. NAD utilized a patented "Power Envelope" design to essentially store energy in a bank of capacitors which could then be fed into the output signal when needed for peak power transients. This allowed the transistor compliment to utilize highly sensitive, high fidelity components, with modest RMS power ratings, but still power some very demanding speakers.
The Monitor Series was released in the mid 1980s and took the NAD proven designs to the next level. Utilizing military spec internal components, copper internal chassis, and a Deiter Rams-like industrial design, the Monitors series delivers SERIOUS power when needed but also provides nuance and lightness to the listening experience.
The NAD 2600A Power Envelope amplifier was one of the most power European amps available at the time. It maintains excellent sound quality with 150 RMS watts of power per channel with 0.05% Total Harmonic Distortion, and the ability to deliver transient power over 1,000w when needed. This amp has been completely serviced by our expert tech, with new output relays installed to insure uninterrupted music for many years to come.
These big power NAD amps are becoming harder and harder to find!
