Question about NAD C320 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

Connect subwoofer etc to nad 3020I stereo amplifier

Cannot find instructions now, had them for years.
I have connected my variable sound out from tv to the tuner in on my amp, tried the gold plated phono but nearly blew the satelllite speakers on trial !!?!!
So into the tuner I have gone...
I want to connect a sub to it, so I have tried various routes taking these arc connectors/plugs out using the pre out to plug the sub in, does work, but then I am looping back from pre in in to aux inputs to get sound through satelites!
Must be a simpler and more sensible way, to it and to use the power of phono!!!
Want to get this right before I get a really good sub, and or get a 5.1 amp, don't really want to ditch the nad 3020I
Thanks?!

Hi Info
You can use a 2 x male RCA to RCA female adaptor lead(what you need to ask for)  like this one connect subwoofer etc to nad 3020I stereo amplifie - 4d0dcde.jpg

use it to jumper your pre-out/main in connection on the rear, and connect an RCA lead to the Female socket on the adaptor lead. That will get you going. You can get them most places that sell electronic bits and peices. I am happy to answer any questionsa you may have 
regards robotek

How do i connect nad av 316 with an lg tv ?


The NAD from what I've seen of the back of it has no digital audio inputs. So unless the TV has standard audio out RCA type connectors you will struggle. If it has a scart socket you can buy a scrat to phono converter. An image will be posted with this message.
However the NAD has only Dolby Surround. It has not got a Dolby Digital decoder so it can never produce the Dolby Digital sound used on DVD/Blue Ray discs or that found on HD TV broadcasts.
As you didn't say which TV model number, I can't say anything more except if it is an HD model and has digital sound connections you really need to upgrade your Receiver to one that has the latest features.

Does the TV have a line audio outpot (red and white jack)? If so feed the amplifier input from there.

How to connect an MP3 Player to NAD C320?


You will need a cable with headphone jack (for mp3) and RCA left/right to connect to your NAD 320. You can connect to CD or AUX in the back and then you will need to change the input with remote or with on board buttons to CD or AUX depending where you plugged it.

NAD C326BEE amp problem. Connected to recommended Wharfdale speakers and NAD CD player and previously working fine for a year. Now red light flashing on amp and no sound when system is turned on.


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for ntermittent shutdown.

How do I connect a Mirage Omni s-10 Sub Woofer and a Parasound Model 2100 Pre Amp to the NAD C372 Amplifier?


You DO realize the preamp is duplicating stuff in the Nad C372, right? This Preamps adds nothing but PHONO connectivity and control. That's why they're called "preamps".

Model 2100 Picture and article:

Use the Sub Out pair on the Preamp (joined by an RCA Y-cable) for the Sub Input on the sub (duh):

http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/preamplifiers/362-a-secrets-preamplifier-and-power-amplifier-review.html?showall=1

Run RCA from the Preamp Main Out to the C372 Aux In to hear any sources attached to the preamp.

Or, if you don't NEED the preamp because you don't have a turntable,ditch the preamp and connect the sub using the speaker outputs on the NADS, according to the manual.

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.

NAD C740 no longer reproducing music through loudspeakers


what was your amp? ic or transistorized? the output transistor of your amp may be opened, mostly it will short but because u still hear sound, maybe open and only the driver transistor are working. replacing output transistor or IC could solve the problem.
