NAD-M32

Modular Design Offers Maximum FlexibilityBy placing inputs and associated circuitry on uniform replaceable modules, the M32 can be custom tailored to cater to your exact requirements. There are a total of 4 MDC slots, with 3 being available for expansion. The preinstalled module is the SPDIF Module, including AES/EBU, 2 x Coax and 2 x Optical, all 24/192 capable. Additionally there is a USB B port for connecting computers as well.The Preamp is Replaced By SoftwareAs previously revealed, when it comes to the M32 we have combined all preamp and power amp functions into a single amplifying stage controlled by software. Highly advanced mathematics determines all control functions including volume and filters. This produces a dramatic reduction in noise and distortion, and brings you much closer to both the music and the performers. Traditional volume controls that change the gain in an active analogue circuit cannot approach the transparency of the M32. It also allows ‘perfect’ tone controls that only change tone, without adding phase shift or distortion; there is no extra circuitry to get in the way. Plus, you can easily bi-wire or add a subwoofer(s) with the built-in electronic crossover.Ready For Hi-Res AudioBy simply adding the optional BluOS MDC Module, the M32 becomes part of the BluOS™ wireless multi-room music ecosystem. Unlike UPnP or AirPlay® which rely on middleware to translate between different platforms; BluOS is a true operating system unlimited by reliance on middleware or computers.-------------- Quickly becoming the leader in high-resolution network audio, BluOS is a complete music management system that brings all your music together, whether it is on hard drives or the cloud, into one easy-to-use control app for smartphones, tablets and laptops. It is also a wireless multi-room system fully compatible with the amazingly affordable Bluesound wireless speakers and digital music players.Phono and Headphones Are Not ForgottenThe M32 also has 2 x Line Inputs and a MM Phono Input that sounds incredible with vinyl. Accurate RIAA equalization, a clever phase cancelling infrasonic filter, and a huge overload margin combine to bring out the best in your LPs. Furthermore, if you are a headphone enthusiast you’ll be thrilled at the sound of our discrete headphone amplifier, which is able to drive even planar and high impedance studio cans. With high voltage and low output impedance, your headphones will sound their best.---------DirectDigital™ DefinedWith 150W x 2 power on tap, the M32 can make almost any speaker sing. More importantly, the M32 has virtually no distortion, and a damping factor that is off the chart. This is all due to the innovative DirectDigital™ Feedback Amplifier built under license from Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR), which uses a form of digital error correction that is incredibly fast and accurate. This is a true digital amp (not just Class D) that is computer controlled and amplifies entirely in the digital domain, converting to analogue at the speaker terminals. This gives it the shortest signal path in NAD’s history.**MDC-BluOs in option for 499$ + taxes.• Adds wireless multi-room High Res Audio network streaming using the BluOS wireless multi-room digital platform• Wi-Fi and wired options• High Resolution Audio streaming to 24/192• Shares music stored anywhere on the local network• Integration of popular music services like Tidal, Rhapsody and Slacker, TuneIn Radio and Spotify Connect• aptX Bluetooth for direct connection to hand held devices• Uses BluOS Music Management App (Android, iOS, desktop) for control
