NAD M27 Seven-Channel Power Amplifier
With seven channels of massive power, the M27 can effortlessly create a truly realistic surround sound experience that will transport you into the cinematic experience. Rated at 180W continuous power per channel, the M27 will provide over 300W dynamic power per channel with all channels driven.
The M27 can accept both balanced and single-ended inputs, and features high quality binding posts for speaker connection. Employing technologies such as NAD’s PowerDrive™ allows the M27 to add more dynamics and depth to your favourite movies and songs. Incredibly energy-efficient, the M27 will deliver more than enough power to any system, resulting in a remarkable soundstage.
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 an amazingly powerful and transparent amplifier design that does everything well.
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 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 power over a sustained load. By controlling the power envelope, maximum clean power is obtained for every operating condition.
