How to get started building your Stereo or Home Theater system
|Vol. 16, No. 1
||NAD has added a new wireless USB DAC to its line, the DAC 2 at $299. Like its little brother, the DAC 1, the DAC 2 streams its musical signal wirelessly from a transmitter plugged into the USB port of any PC or Mac, and the transmitter and receiver (which plugs into your audio system) can be up to 75 feet away in a typical home. While the DAC 1 is limited to 16-bit/48-kHz signals, the DAC 2 fills the growing demand for a similar point-to-point wireless solution that transmits up to 24-bit/96-kHz, studio quality music. The DAC 2 is simple to install, easy to use, and no wireless network is needed.|
||In our last issue we discussed in detail NAD's Viso 1 portable music center. Now the Viso 1 is available in a second configuration with wireless WiFi capability called the Viso 1 AP, where "AP" stands for Airplay. This means that the new version can receive wireless streaming music from any Apple Airplay capable device such as an iPhone or iPad. In addition, the Viso 1 AP can also stream music using the latest and best sounding version of Bluetooth called aptX Bluetooth. So, this new version is very flexible and allows you a choice of two different modes of music streaming. The Viso 1 AP sells for $599.|
||NAD's excellent PP-3i phono preamplifier has now been supplanted by the new and improved PP-4 with the price remaining unchanged at $199. This new version continues to offer all of the features of its predecessor such as advanced circuit design and parts for excellent sound, compatibility with both moving coil and moving magnet phono cartridges, a USB output that can digitize your records and transfer them to a computer, and an auxiliary input that can also allow you to digitize sources other than vinyl. This new version also has advanced power management that turns it off when not in use to conserve energy.|
To create the heart of a system, the new NAD D 7050 Direct Digital Network Amplifier ($999) needs only a computer or smartphone running iTunes and a home WiFi network. The D 7050 combines NAD's most advanced digital platform, Direct Digital technology, with Apple's AirPlay WiFi streaming technology to create the ultimate plug 'n play solution for wireless music. It can also stream any UPnP audio content from a computer or NAS drive on a home network. Wireless access is very flexible, as the D 7050 also supports Bluetooth aptX for point-to-point streaming without a network. You can also transfer music using a wired, Ethernet connection from a networked computer or USB drive. There are also optical and coaxial digital inputs for non-wireless sources. Thus, you have complete flexibility as to how you send your digital music to your audio system. All you need to complete the system is a pair of your favorite loudspeakers.
||The D 3020 digital integrated amplifier at $499 is a very simple and affordable way to create a high-quality music system that can accommodate computer-based USB audio input, aptX Bluetooth wireless streaming from any Bluetooth device, and traditional digital or analog sources. The D 3020 provides a very conservative 30 watt/channel of power, can stream music from a computer using its asynchronous USB input at up to 24-bit/96-kHz, has a separate headphone amplifier and subwoofer output, and is remotely controllable. The only other thing you need to complete a system is a pair of high-quality loudspeakers.|
||The D 1050 USB DAC ($499) is for those who want NAD's best quality computer audio and who prefer the superior quality of a wired connection to that of a wireless solution. The D 1050 can accept music files at up to 24-bit/192-kHz through its asynchronous USB input. There are also optical and SPDIF inputs for other digital components. Output to your audio system can be either single-ended through the RCA connectors or balanced through the XLR jacks. There is also a headphone output for private listening./TD>|
