NAD PP375

Rick from Overland Park, KS on 4/25/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I had the toughest time installing it. It took me nearly 2 hours. One reason is my Integrated AMP is on the bottom of my stereo system. Number 2 reason is I have a DAC Module. I had two options to install it: either connect it to the main board or the DAC Module which clearly states PP 375 IN. I called Crutchfield Tech Support to confirm I was doing the right thing, since I could not find anything on the web. TS confirmed it. The AWM 20624 80C 60 V ribbon cable (4 inches in length) is just barely enough; it is very tight. I will have to order a larger one to get the tightest out of the ribbon cable. Number 3 reason is I had to discount the RS 232 module so I could properly install the PP 375. It is a tight fit if it is not discounted. I didn't want to take any risk in damaging anything. I believe it is the purest image quality I've heard in a long time.

Pros: Great sound image quality.

Cons: The cable is barely enough if you have a DAC Module.

Sound like my sister's old 45 player

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this module for my C 375BEE. Coupled with a Rega 3 and an Elys2 cartridge. The sound is cold and lifeless definitely not HiFi. Spotify on a bluetooth from my phone to an Audioengine B1 sounded better. I have since purchased a Macintosh MA252 and will now have two systems to play with. On a whim I purchased a Pro-Ject Tube Box S Phono Preamp yesterday. Hooked it up last night to the NAD thru the AUX input and once it warmed up the difference is night and day! I also purchased a Oppo Sonica DAC running Tidal in HiFi mode. The turntable on the Pro-Ject still sounds warmer and more alive than the DAC or my CD player now on the NAD. If you are looking for a good phono preamp this is not the one to buy.

Pros: None

Cons: Buy a decent phono standalone or another preamp.

PP375 Phono Module

Dean from Washington, DC on 11/7/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about buying a phono module I had to install myself, but the Crutchfield folks told me it wouldn't be that difficult. They were right!! It took about 10 minutes and there were no problems at all. I installed it into a new NAD C 356BEE integrated amp and the sound is great. My vinyl never sounded better.

Pros: Good clean sound Easy to install

Cons: The fact that it has to be installed

This unit is a snap to install in NAD's amp - if you can plug in a cable to a connector you wont have any trouble. The sound quality is top of the line.

At low volume sound with the phone module is better than just using a standard input, but at higher volumes there is some noise/hum.

Solid Addition

John D from Tennessee on 1/29/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I added this to the NAD C 356BEE. I had a cheap pre amp with my old Yamaha amp and it had a lot of feedback. This is clean and I can now enjoy my vinyl. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I need to crank it up little more than other inputs to get the same sound decibels. Not a problem with the NAD C 356BEE and it has very low distortion.

Pros: Clean sound with no feedback.

Cons: Little under powered

Needed this unit to plug into the amp, as all I play is vinyl...It was easy to hookup/plug into the NAD C375 Amp, and works great ! VERY happy with this addition to my stereo system, which is a Technics 1200GLD turntable, I run a Ortofon 2M Black cartridge, and push the Polk RTi-A9 tower speakers...Absolute awesum performance here...Thanx, Team Crutchfield !!! RadioRich ( olvinyldude ...youtube )

Pros: Great working addition, easy hookup/install

Cons: None known

Easy to install and sounds great....

Bart from Katy, TX on 6/3/2013

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was at first a little worried about the module install. After speaking with customber support I went ahead with the purchase of the NAD PP375 and NAD 356 BEE. Easy as pie? Or is it cake? Whatever. It took 10 min. and I took my time an was extremely careful.

Pros: Very nice design and function. Not sure how it compares in sound to other options. I like it:)

Cons: None so far.

I installed this unit myself and it work great with my Pro-Ject Carbon turntable

Pros: Easy install

Cons: You have to flip the switch on the DAC module to get the NAD PP375 to function. Not a big deal but took awhile to figure out

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
I wanted a device that would integrate to my NAD amp. Heard great reviews on this pre-amp. [ RICARDO  Apr 09, 2019 ]
A
Purchased the C356 BEE a couple years ago. Purchased a Pro Ject turntable which requires a pre amp. [ richg1390  Jan 28, 2018 ]
A
I have a High end Audio Technica Turntable and this unit is required to use turntables with this NAD Unit [ John  Dec 30, 2016 ]
A
It's the right price for the right machine. Plus, it's hard to find these in a retailer shop. The places where they sell them are higher end installers and always put on the "hard sell" which I do not appreciate. [ Robert  Jul 11, 2016 ]
A
I have a turntable and having an the preamp integrated with the main amp saves space, and more importantly cabling. [ Harvey  Jun 23, 2016 ]
