NAD CI 8-150 DSP

Multi-Channel Amplifier

Our eight-channel powerhouse promises NAD’s legendary performance with reliability and stability with lots of installer-friendly Features. The all-new CI 8-150 DSP is an advanced amplifier targeted squarely at audiophile-grade distributed audio systems. Delivering a conservative 8 x 150 Watts per channel @ 8 Ohms, it is also bridgeable to 4 x 280 Watts per channel @ 8 Ohms with all channels driven. To put it simply, the CI 8-150 will drive most anything you need in your multi-room audio system, and will do so with remarkable sound quality.

NAD CI 8-150 DSP Description

Smart CI Solution with Audiophile Performance for Distributed Audio
The Ncore amplifier platform delivers stable and efficient power with high current capability, all in a compact 2U rack space. To make this level of performance possible, the CI 8-150 DSP uses a customized version of the proven Ncore output stage.

This allows for massive power with extremely low distortion and noise in the audible range. Every detail of this design has been carefully executed to wring out every last drop of performance. Designed to deal with the demands of the CI world, it was made to handle long cable runs and difficult speaker loads.

For additional flexibility for the system designer, the CI 8-150 offers multiple inputs including an additional two coax inputs and two optical inputs.

NAD is keenly aware that reliability is paramount for a professional installer so all models will be based on tried and true amplification platforms delivering stable and reliable performance. The CI 8-150 amplifier is robust and stable at 4 Ohm impedance. A variety of power methods are available as well as an Eco mode setting for minimal power consumption.
