We are a factory authorized service center for all NAD products.
We are familiar with their full line of receivers, amplifiers, cd
and dvd players, and home theater systems.
NAD is an innovative company, incorporating many unique features
in their products. Here is one of them, “soft clipping”,
used for many years on receivers and amplifiers:
Any amplifier that is overdriven (asked to generate levels beyond
its undistorted capabilities) will produce distortion (clipping).
The result is not only very harsh sound but often damage to speakers — especially
tweeters. The selectable "Soft Clipping" feature on NAD
amplifiers gently transforms the music waveform as the point of clipping
approaches, resulting in much clearer reproduction and simultaneous
protection of speakers. One very valuable time to consider using
the soft clipping option is during a party. As more and more people
crowd into a room, and create more and more background noise, it
is all too easy to keep setting the volume higher without realizing
just how high you have turned it up. Switching in Soft Clipping will
greatly reduce the chance of damage.
