NAD's C 427 builds on the strengths of previous NAD tuners by offering a quality of reception that's as good as, or better than, the quality of today's broadcasts. RF front end for cleaner reception in fringe areas, plus noise is extremely low across the audio spectrum. In line with NAD's environmental policy, we have completely redesigned the power supply for improved efficiency and ultra-low power consumption during standby while still allowing all remote activation and control interfaces. The rear panel IR Input, and RS-232 port, allows the C 427 to be used in custom installation. We have one of the most intuitive user interfaces in the market utilizing a 24 position rotary encoder knob to more quickly tune stations or select preset stations. All functions are available via the included IR Remote Control.
