Where to buy new NAD C 3050?

Well, the new NAD C 3050 LE is just announced, and I want one!

But how? Where do you buy this kind of limited-edition gear?

(By the way, why is there no NAD/BlueOS subsection in Audio Gear Talk?)

I would contact one of the numbers listed here:

I had a problem with an “authorized repair shop” I contacted NAD directly and it was taken care of. I recommend them Highly.

They will help you part with your cash.

It looks amazing but would blow my speakers turning it on. :slight_smile:

Well, now I have two of them on order from two separate shops…

Hopefully one of them comes through.

Well, maybe. It doesn’t show up as Roon Ready in the Roon list of devices, though. I assume that’s because it’s so new.

I see no mention of Roon on the NAD site. I wouldn’t count on it being Roon Ready.

This. Roon is suspiciously absent in the list of all supported services.

No USB or Ethernet in, I think you’ll need an external streamer for Roon. Love that it’s “stereophonic”.

It ships with the mdc2 module, installs into the port on lower left of rear of unit.


Thanks for clarifying that.

No trouble I was digging this unit, I’ve got the M33 and a C375. Love the retro theme with the modern guts. NAD pretty good value and quality imo.

Best to you

the new 3050 w/ the MoFi Fender TT, and a pair of Zu Dirty Weekend 6s would make such a sweet retrofied system.

I was thinking of this turntable, recently seen. But it has a built-in preamp. Looks like that can be defeated, though.

I have preordered the LE.

It will replace a more drab-looking C368 with 1st gen BluOS MDC.

I’m not a fan of the wood veneer casing but maybe where it will sit in A/V stand it won’t be too noticeable. Features, however, ticks a lot of pro boxes. Of course the main drool factor was having modern convenience with VUs.


Latest info is shipping will be mid-January.

[speaking of the original 3030…] “We have to get out of our chair, like an animal…”
