    Hi. Precisely the same issue. This amp, also a C270, has never before been intrinsically audible.

    I have read that the probability is that capacitors need replacement.

    Ill take it in next week and have it looked at. These amplifiers are now a few years old, and some degradation is likely.

The buzzing is coming from the transformer. It is almost expected of an amplifier of this size, that the transformer (a large one) will excite the resonance of the casework and make some noise.

NAD M55 and NAD M15 I can't get sound when connecting with component or in analogue. How can I switch analogue "on" and which audio connections do I make on the back of the M15


You should use the mixed audio out connector of the M55 or the two plugs for the component video out. (the bottom two) That should be plugged in on the CD input of the M15.

But I assume you already got any sound out of the set.
If you are starting, you really should read the manuals, because there are so many things you have to take in account. It could end you can play CD's, but have to re cable the system when you want to play a DVD or a blue ray.

Hi, I have a NAD C162 Pre-Amp which I am using with a NAD C270 Poer Amp. Th problem is that the Pre-Amp doesn't seem to be driving the Power-Amp efficiently. By this I mean i need to turn the gain up...


Hello, I have an idea:
at the rear side of the NAD preamp there is a switch, it can be in mode MM or MC . Please check it whether it is in right position or not.

Good luck,

How do you connect a nad c270 amp to the bose 901 series vi equlizer and system/


Bear in mind that 901's require exclusive use of any amplifier they use. You shouldn't expect to use conventional speakers alongside them on the same amp. The reason is that the 901's require the use of their dedicated Active Equalizer to shape the frequency spectrun to match their drivers' response curves, resulting in a flat sound output. Applying that kind of equalization to any conventional speakers will sound to sharp at the extremes and may even potentially damage them.

For connection I would run a pair of RCA cables from the L&R Audio Line OUT of whatever preamp or source you're using to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to a NAD amp's Line IN. DEselect any Tape options on the Active EQ, attach the 901's to the new amp, set the NAD volume controls pretty high (and leave them alone), run through any level setup procedures in your control electronics for volume, etc and you're done.

usually this would indicate a dry joint inside or some other temp related intermittent fault, component problem. Take it to a tech and tell them what happens

NAD C270 amp won't switch from red power/protection to green.


The AH may denote "slo-blo" style as opposed to Fast-acting
A fast-acting fuse will look like a single strand of wire ( maybe wiggly looking) ..A Slo-blo will have an element in it and a spring

Buzzing noise coming from speakers (bose acoustimass 5). volume up on the buzzing only happens in phono mode - no increase on other modes.Had amp since new and no probs. I think it was left on for a day...


The coupling capacitor on the phono input is possibly become leaky. Try replacing any small electrolytic capacitors you see near the input within the amp.

NAD C370 Amplifier


This sounds like a problem with the protection circuit, and/or the speaker relays. More specifically, a capacitor within those circuits that is not behaving properly. I strongly suggest having it looked at ASAP.
