NAD MDC 2.0 DAC moduli. Striimaa 24/96 Studio Master tiedostoja.
Moduli sopii NAD vahvistimiin C 375BEE and C 356BEE ja on helppo asentaa.
* Huom! Moduuli ei sovi vanhempiin C375BEE vahvistimiin. LUE LOPUSTA!!
We love streaming computer music, especially 24/96 studio master tracks. But most computer sound cards are not designed for music production and end up ruining the sound while popular music streaming devices like Apple TV, Squeezebox and Sonos follow a similar poor quality path. Plug any of these devices into NAD’s MDC DAC and you will be blown away by what you hear! Listen to the details and dynamics reproduced from the original recording rather than the noise and distortion of an inadequately designed audio stage.
NAD's Innovative Solution
Two of our top-rated amplifiers, the C 375BEE and C 356BEE, have our unique innovation—Modular Design Construction (MDC). MDC makes it easy to upgrade features and functionality. With the MDC DAC, you get the convenience of computer music without sacrificing the musical performance of your NAD hi-fi system.
Thanks to a technique known as 'asynchronous USB', we have eliminated computer sound and let music flow freely. USB is a computer standard for high-speed data transmission (good news for 24/96 quality music) but it has a feature set skewed for PC use, not music. USB sends info in 'data packets' making the system very robust. There is also a traffic manager that can vary the size and sequence of the packets – good for PCs, bad for music. These timing variations create a condition called 'jitter' – small variations that create a harsh distortion. However, by using the MDC DAC’s high precision clock and built-in NAD customised software to control the PC, this distortion can be eliminated.
Be in Complete Control
If you love iTunes, plug your Apple TV into the MDC DAC and find out what the world's most successful music service really sounds like. Ever wonder what Apple lossless sounds like in comparison to AAC compressed downloads? The MDC DAC will reveal the truth.
Get More from your Music
If you love the Sonos or Squeezebox experience, elevate it to the next level of musical enjoyment with the MDC DAC installed in a 150W per channel C 375BEE amplifier or 80W per channel C 356BEE amplifier. Either one of these highly acclaimed amplifiers can drive high quality loudspeakers to realistic sound levels without breaking a sweat. You’ll hear more detail, dimension and natural timbre from each individual instrument than you ever thought possible.

One point to note is that the MDC Module was designed after the C 375BEE was already on the market. As a result early C 375BEE units do not have the required internal power in the slot to drive the MDC DAC. To avoid any mishaps with earlier units by trying to install the MDC DAC, the connector in the slot has also been changed. The C 375BEE was updated from serial number H08C375BEEG05870 onwards. This change took place from August 2010 production.
Tarkoittaa siis, että MDC DAC moduuli ei sovi C375BEE vahvistimiin ennen sarjanumeroa H08C375BEEG05870.
