The CI 720 V2’s “blade” form factor allows up to six Network Stereo Zone Amplifiers to be installed neatly into a single 3U rack space, while its highly efficient energy-saving amplifier and thermostatic fan cooling adds enhanced reliability.

Powerful Single-Zone Performance

With 60 watts per channel, and up to 165 watts of Dynamic Power on tap, the CI 720 V2’s integrated HybridDigital™ amp can drive any speaker to lifelike sound levels without adding noise or distortion. By focusing on how to improve musical performance while consuming less power, NAD has taken CI amplification to new lows, with lower distortion, lower noise, and lower power consumption.
