NEWS: NAD adds compact all-in-one - with or without DAB

New from NAD is an all-in-one music system combining amplifier, CD player and tuner, designed to fit in small spaces where conventional systems just won't go. The C715 measures just 21.5cm wide, and comes in two versions: the standard one, at £325, has an FM/AM tuner, while the C715DAB adds a digital radio tuner and costs £100 more.

Both systems also have front-mounted sockets, both analogue and digital, to connect portable devices, as well as a USB socket allowing music to be transferred from the unit to portable storage devices, and also let music stored on those devices play through the system.

Three analogue inputs are also provided on the rear panel, plus an analogue output, and there's a headphone socket, multiway terminals for a single pair of speakers, a subwoofer output and even connections for external infrared receivers.

The unit delivers 2x24W, has 30 radio presets, and comes complete with a sleep/alarm timer, making it ideal as a second-room system.
