Distinguished amongst analogue preamplifiers, the C 165BEE is built to be the heart of any advanced home audio system. Starting with six line level inputs, including MC/MM phono input, the C 165BEE is incredibly flexible. Featuring a superbly designed tone control circuit, the C 165BEE is an exceptional example of how to implement high-fidelity tone controls by affecting only the frequency extremes and leaving the critical midrange untouched, while also offering a bypass option. With a 12V-trigger output and IR inputs and outputs on the rear panel, the C 165BEE is ready to integrate with CI control systems. With outstanding build quality and true engineering sophistication, the NAD C 165BEE is the preamp you’ve been waiting for.

The pre-amp caters for both analog and digital requirements. It features R C A and balanced outputs. This is a truly versatile preamplifier, with two YBA ‘signature’ control buttons on the front panel for mute and phase. The remaining two controls are for source selection and volume.
There is a definite warmth of presentation, a fuller lower midrange sets up the YBA’s sonic texture. The sound is based on proximity and immediacy. What sounds the most beautiful is the instruments and vocals located in the middle of the frequency range. Yet this occurs without limiting everything to just the midrange. The treble has an open, strong character, with plenty of energy corresponding to the higher registers of the vibraphone, drum cymbals, etc.
