Hybrid Digital Amplification

The M27 uses the latest nCore™ amplifier technology licensed from Hypex. With nCore, Hypex has refined their UcD concept to new levels of perfection by improving the modulator for more accurate feedback subtraction and PWM generation. The all-discrete driver and output stage have also been improved for lower open-loop THD as well as lower idling losses, normally conflicting requirements with conventional IC driver circuitry. An added control loop incorporating an integrator with adaptive clipping enables 20dB more feedback to be used across the audio band because of its extremely low phase shift resulting in a dramatic reduction in distortion across the audio band. This is added to UcD's already amazing characteristics of load invariance and high current capability, common characteristics of great sounding amplifiers. Nothing can match the performance of hybrid digital amplifier technology. The sonic character of the M27 only reinforces the story told by the numbers. This is an amazingly powerful and transparent amplifier design that does everything well.

Effortless Power

Employing the latest generation of digital PowerDrive™ the M22 offers a minimum of 250W per channel with amazing reserves of dynamic power at lower impedances. The M22 is capable of >300W dynamic power per channel even in 8 ohms, and >600W in 2 ohms. It can effortlessly power any loudspeaker to live performance levels with amazing efficiency and low power consumption. Control for PowerDrive is derived by sensing the average output power, applying a time constant, and then cleanly hard clipping the signal thus limiting it to the rated continuous clipping power over a sustained loading. By controlling the power envelope maximum clean power is obtained for every operating condition.

Perfecting Performance

The output stage is only one of several circuits in the amplifier, and each must complement the other to obtain optimal performance. The amp is DC coupled throughout, from input to output, there is no capacitor in the forward signal path. Yet, it has a beneficial 12dB/octave roll-off below 2Hz. It does this using a unique circuit topology that is functionally a forward servo. It is however not a servo in the traditional sense as it does not measure DC at the output and send back a correction signal. Instead part of the input signal is fed to a side chain with a second order low-pass filter. The output of this is subtracted from the forward signal input to the second stage thus rejecting DC.

Fully Balanced Audio

The same efficient audio interface used by studios provides the highest level of signal integrity with the lowest noise floor. Locking connectors and special interface electronics allow long cable runs without noise pickup or signal loss. All you get is awesome sound without the possibility of noise pickup or interference.

Legendary PowerDrive™

NAD PowerDrive™ circuit delivers very high dynamic power and low impedance drive to accurately control loudspeakers, resulting in remarkably musical and relaxed sound. PowerDrive gives the M27 maximum power no matter what you throw at it—and without the energy drain. NAD's exclusive SoftClipping™ feature is also included to protect your speakers (and ears) from damaging clipping distortion. Control for PowerDrive is derived by sensing the average output power, applying a time constant, and then cleanly hard clipping the signal thus limiting it to the rated continuous clipping power over a sustained loading. By controlling the power envelope maximum clean power is obtained for every operating condition.
