NAD DAC1 Digital to Analog Converter

Done Wireless Too!

 

NAD DAC-1 Digital to Audio Converter 

  

Digital to Audio Converter where computer music meets hi-fi sound. That’s what the DAC1 Wireless USB Digital-to-Analogue Converter is all about. Our super simple and fun solution lets you listen to any music stored on or streamed to your computer on your hi-fi system. Point-to-point wireless technology means you can just plug in the two-piece DAC 1 and start enjoying computer audio with the least amount of fuss.

You no longer have to pick your computer over your audio system when it comes to listening to your favourite digital tunes, Internet radio, or cloud services like Spotify, Pandora, Last.fm, and MOG. Spoil yourself with better sound quality and more control over your music choices.

You don’t need a Wi-Fi network to use the DAC 1 with its point-to-point wireless technology, which features the full audio bandwidth and remains uncompressed to maintain sound quality. Simply plug the DAC 1’s Transmitter into your computer’s USB port and it becomes a sound card that transmits audio to your hi-fi system.

To achieve the best possible sound, the Transmitter digitally transmits the audio from your Mac or PC to the DAC 1 Receiver, which then converts the digital signal to analogue using premium Burr-Brown OPAmps and 24/192 DAC with selected passive components in a proprietary circuit. There is also a coax digital output that allows downstream digital processing.

NAD D3020 Today's World Amplifier!

MEASURES 2 5/16" x 7 3/8" x 8 5/8”

    

NAD D3020 Hybrid Digital Amplifier and more ...

  

Today the source is more likely to be a computer or a smart phone than a turntable, but the ability to choose speakers that perfectly suit your taste is still a compelling argument for upgrading to a NAD amplifier. The D 3020 stars with the original NAD concept and takes it straight to the 21st century using the latest high speed digital technology.

CONNECT ALL YOUR DIGITAL DEVICES
There are inputs for your computer and for other digital and analog sources. The USB input uses ‘asynchrounous’ mode to insure the lowest possible jitter (timing errors) from notoriously unstable computer audio outputs and supports 24/96 HD studio master music files. Coaxial and optical inputs allow many different digital sources to be connected, from CD and DVD disc players, to set top boxes like AppleTV or satellite and cable receivers. There are also analog inputs for iPods and older non-digital audio components like FM tuners.

The NAD D3020, with its wireless Bluetooth capability, can stream music from smartphones, tablets and laptops and even supports the highest audio quality Bluetooth aptX that is becoming more and more popular for its excellent sound quality and low power consumption compared to Wi-Fi.

POWER THAT REALLY DELIVERS
Power output may sound small at 30 watts per channel, but like all NAD amplifiers this can be very misleading as a properly designed 30W amplifier can often sound superior to a 100W amplifier from a lesser brand. More important, the D 3020 can drive real loudspeakers to satisfying levels without adding noise or distortion. It’s highly efficient design wastes less energy resulting in cool running and longer life. Standby power consumption is <0.5W.  MEASURES 2 5/16" x 7 3/8" x 8 5/8”

nad d1050 

NAD D1050 USB DAC 

The NAD D1050 USB DAC is the best way to add Computer Audio and HD Digital to your component hi-fi system. Both the digital and the analog circuits are highly optimized and based on techniques developed over 40 years of NAD audio engineering excellence. The digital inputs cater to many different digital sources. SPDIF inputs support balanced AES/EBU, coaxial and optical connectors. The USB input is very special; its asynchronous operation mode uses the D 1050’s high precision clock to control the output of the connected USB device for lowest possible jitter. It also supports USB Audio Codec 2.0 allowing 192kHz signal transmission.

The digital processing of the D 1050 features Delta/Sigma architecture with active oversampling filters. This technique effectively reduces out of band noise while maintaining linear phase response and virtual elimination of filter ringing in the pass band. This assures detailed and extended high frequency response while taking full advantage of the extended response of recordings sampled at 88.2kHz and above.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


NAD C725BEE Stereo Receiver

NAD C725BEE Stereo Receiver (LIMITED QTY, SEE PREOWNED USED STOCK) This is a true BEE (Bjorn Erik Edvardsen) design with all his latest developments including: PowerDrive, Distortion Canceling Circuit, BEE Clamp and an all new and more highly refined circuit layout. Based on a high current toroidal transformer - the same type found on our own high end Masters Series - the NAD C 725BEE can provide a healthy, ultra low distortion 50 watts of continuous power.

But more importantly, on a short term dynamic basis (which is the way music reproduction demands the power to be delivered) the C 725BEE can provide as much as 200 watts depending on the characteristics of the loudspeaker being driven. If, for any reason, more power is asked for than the C 725BEE can provide the exclusive Soft Clipping circuit prevents the harsh grating sound of hard clipping distortion.
This ultra low noise and distortion fountain of power, gives music an effortless unforced quality.

NAD C316BEE Integrated Amplifier

The most affordable NAD Integrated Amp is the C 316BEE.  NAD has an enviable reputation for creating some of the best performing budget amplifiers of all time. The lineage is impressive, all the way from the 3020 of 1978 to the current models today, with many "Best Amp" awards and 5 Star reviews along the way. As loudspeaker quality and performance has continued to improve, especially at modest price points, NAD felt that there was room for a lower cost amp that could take advantage of these speakers; creating a new entry point for serious musical performance.

NAD C425 Tuner

The NAD Model C425 Tuner builds on the strengths of previous NAD Tuners by offering a quality of reception that is as good as or better than the quality of today's broadcasts. A new RF Front End has improved sensitivity for cleaner reception in fringe reception areas, and we have lowered noise across the audio spectrum. The rear panel's IR Input and RS-232 port allow the C425 to be easily integrated with the sophisticated system controllers used in Custom Installation. We have also improved the user interface by adding a 24 position rotary encoder knob to more quickly tune stations or select preset stations. Additionally, all functions are available via the included IR Remote Control.

NAD C545BEE CD Player

The C 545BEE replaces NAD's venerable C 542. With the worldwide acclaim and numerous awards for outstanding performance and value, it is fair to ask why NAD would "mess with success". But NAD has never rested on its laurels; rather development is ongoing at the NAD Lab and new models are launched when we feel a significant improvement has been achieved. Such is the case with the C 545BEE. Besides the new more refined cosmetics, the circuit layout and component choices have been extensively updated. The cumulative effect of these changes is dramatic, improving low frequency slam and extension, while maintaining the pace and timing for which the C 542 was so lavishly praised. Image depth and scale are further enhanced while retaining the timbral accuracy and lucid harmonic structure of its predecessor.  Upgrade model C565BEE

 

NAD C515BEE CD Player

NAD has a well deserved reputation for producing some the best performing CD Players in the world.
