Nad C420


The NAD Model C420 boasts a full measure of NAD performance combined with simple and intuitive operation, and offers it all at a new lower price point.

With 30 presets available you can store all your favourite radio stations. These presets can be any combination of AM and FM stations: 25 presets for FM and 5 for AM, or 17 for FM and 13 for AM, for instance. To avoid having to scroll through 30 presets, the un-programmed (empty) ones are skipped to give you quick access to all your favourite stations.

Instead of littering the front panel with buttons and features that are hardly ever used, the NAD Model C420 concentrates on convenience in daily operation. The RDS limits itself to the RDS PS and RT functions, both of which enhance ease of operation.

The RDS PS (Program Service) will automatically indicate the name of the radio station you are listening to in the display, e.g. BBC R1, so you will always know exactly what station you are listening to.

At the touch of a button RDS RT (Radio Text) will display additional information broadcast by the radio station, such as the presenter, which music is playing, etc.

For AM and non-RDS stations the C420 allows you to name each preset individually with up to 8 characters. Once you have named your presets you don't need to remember which frequency goes with what radio station, the name is indicated in the display every time the preset is recalled.

All the preset information is stored in the C420's non-volatile memory, which means it will remember all of its preset information even if the unit has been unplugged for a prolonged amount of time.
