Founded in England in 1972 by Dr. Martin L. Borish, NAD (New Acoustic Dimension) Electronics is driven by a simple philosophy - to incorporate only genuinely useful functions and features into their products in order to create aesthetically understated and elegant products with a modern appeal.
NAD focuses their designs on the concept of "effective power" so that their amplifiers can deliver plenty of headroom, and are capable of delivering dynamic bursts of power well in excess of their rated RMS output. Additionally, their amplifiers can handle the complex, lower-load impedance configurations needed when operating large sets of speakers in series.
