The NAD M50 CD & Digital Music Player is part of the Master Series. Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) is a revolutionary end-to-end technology built into every Bluesound Player that captures and delivers master quality audio to any room in your home. All Bluesound Players include a powerful decoder and audio renderer for the MQA system. The MQA logo shown in the BluOS app indicates that the unit is decoding and playing an MQA stream or file, and lets you know that you are hearing exactly what the artist recorded and approved in the studio. The M50 is the brain of NAD‘s Masters Digital Music Suite, where most of the processing and control functions are located. The M50 is a “software defined” product, meaning that much of the functionality of the system is defined by software not hardware.
The NAD M50 has only digital outputs but includes HDMI as well as AES/EBU and optical and coaxial S/PDIF. It plays files with bit depths of 16 or 24, and with sample rates up to 192kHz. Operated from its front-panel controls or the supplied remote, or opt for and download the NAD Remote app for Android or iOS devices. The CD drive can be used both to rip and play CDs.
This was an in-store demo unit: we have *ONE* available in SILVER and it’s sold with the NAD M52 Digital Music Vault.
