Loads of Presets
With 40 presets available you can store all your favourite radio stations. These presets can be any combination of AM and FM stations. To avoid having to scroll through 40 presets, the C 427 skips any that have not been programmed (left empty), so you can quickly access all your favourite stations.
Instead of littering the front panel with buttons and features that are hardly ever used, the C 427 concentrates on convenience in daily operation. The RDS limits itself to the RDS PS and RT function, both of which enhance ease of operation. The RDS PS (Program Service) will automatically indicate the name of the radio station on the display, e.g., “BBC R1,” so you will always know exactly what station you are listening to. With its four-line graphic display, you always see all the available information. Preset information is stored in the C 427’s non-volatile memory, which means it will remember all of its preset information even if the unit has been unplugged.
Auto-Search automatically stops at the next strong radio signal it comes across and optimizes tuning. Weaker radio stations can be tuned into manually. Stations that are quiet in Mono but noisy in Stereo can benefit from the “Blend” feature that narrows stereo separation and lowers noise. FM Mute eliminates inter-station tuning noise and only allows strong and clear stations to emerge from the silent background. Although AM can never reach the quality of any FM transmission, the C 427’s AM section retains excellent clarity together with the lowest possible background noise.
The NAD C 427 also offers features to get the maximum out of the airwaves. The MOS-FET RF Front End design together with high-quality components and careful PCB layout guarantees excellent sensitivity with low intermodulation distortion to provide a quiet and musically satisfying performance.
Whether you are looking for excellent performance, ease of use or the convenience of RDS, the C 427 offers all these with the value to high-performance ratio for which NAD is so renowned.
