Simple, Single-App Integration & Control

The CI 720 features the BluOS operating system and allows you to access, control and stream music playlists to multiple BluOS Enabled zones in the home using simple touch-screen commands. The CI 720’s “blade” form factor allows up to six Network Stereo Zone Amplifiers to be installed neatly into a single 3U rack space, while its highly efficient energy-saving amplifier and thermostatic fan cooling add enhanced reliability.

Powerful Single-Zone Performance

With 60 watts per channel and up to 165 watts of Dynamic Power on tap, the CI 720’s integrated HybridDigital™ amp can drive any speaker to lifelike sound levels. By focusing on how to improve musical performance while consuming less power, NAD has taken CI amplification to new lows, with lower distortion, lower noise, and lower power consumption.

A professional custom rack accessory is also available with innovative shelves that can accommodate up to six CI 720s without a single modification in a 3U rack space. The RM 720 includes blanking plates for a neat front panel when less than six amplifiers are installed.

Master Quality Authenticated

Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a revolutionary end-to-end technology built into every Bluesound Player that captures and delivers master quality audio to any room in your home. All Bluesound Players include a powerful decoder and audio renderer for the MQA system. The MQA logo shown in the BluOS app indicates that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and lets you know that you are hearing exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio.

About NAD

In 1972, a new kind of audio company was born. NAD took form when a large group of audio-industry importers in Europe, all music lovers, set out to develop products that cut through the industry hype. The goal of NAD was to prove that excellent sound quality and excellent value could exist together. It was a formidable goal – some of the most reputable electronics brands of the time were unaffordable to most, while the affordable spectrum of the market was dominated by poor quality imports from global electronics giants. NAD’s founders remained undeterred and their original vision led to an inspiring story of how a group of specialty audio mavericks took on the Goliaths of the audio industry to carve out a unique place of their own.

Like NAD's home-theatre and Hi-Fi products, the focus of the Custom Integration (CI) range is on performance with DACs, OPAmps, and passive circuit components selected for musical sound quality. NAD is dedicated to innovation, performance, value, and simplicity in all their products.
