Not many hifi brands can claim fifty years in the business, and to celebrate its half-century milestone, NAD Electronics has released a new gorgeously retro inspired amp, the C 3050 LE integrated.

Inspired by the industrial design of its 3030 stereophonic amp from 1974, the C 3050 LE will be produced in limited quantities, with only 1972 being made and each one individually numbered.

Featuring illuminated VU metres, its satin walnut veneer wooden case conceals modern tech built around the brand’s HybridDigital amplification with 100w per channel on offer.

Hires multi-room streaming, MQA decoding and Dirac Room Correction via the included BluOS-D MDC2 module are also included plus compatibility with Apple AirPlay 2 and aptX HD Bluetooth. It also includes a phono stage and dedicated headphone amplifier.
