THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING NAD.
The M4 Tuner is a technologically advanced and highly capable product
— yet we have invested great effort in making it simple and easy to use.
We have been careful to ensure that the M4 is as musically transparent
and spatially accurate as possible, incorporating much of what we’ve
learned from a quarter century’s experience designing audio and hometheater components. As with all our products, NAD’s “Music First” design
philosophy guided the M4’s design, such that it can confidently promise
you both state-of-the-art and audiophile-quality music listening for years
to come.
We encourage you to take a few minutes now to read right through this
manual. Investing a little time here at the outset might save you a good
deal of time later, and is by far the best way to ensure that you make the
most of your investment in the M4, and get the most from this powerful
and flexible audio component.
One more thing: We urge you to register your M4 ownership on the NAD
Worldwide Web site:
http://NADelectronics.com/warranty
For warranty information contact your local distributor.
INTRODUCTION
ABOUT M4
The M4 Tuner is equipped with DAB (230V version only), XM-input (for
120V version only) and RDS (Radio Data System), bringing a wide range of
information to radio listeners. These are in addition to the normal AM/FM
band reception.
NEDERLANDS
DEUTSCH
ITALIANO
ESPAÑOL
Until now, analogue radio signals such as FM or AM have been subject to
numerous kinds of interference on their way from the transmitter to your
radio. These problems were caused by mountains, high-rise buildings
and weather conditions. With DAB (Digital Audio Broadcast), you can now
receive CD-like quality radio programs without any annoying interference
and signal distortion.
SVENSKA
CHOOSING A LOCATION
Choose a location that is well ventilated (with at least several inches to both
sides and behind), and that will provide a clear line of sight, within 23feet/7
meters, between the M4’s front panel and your primary listening/viewing
position—this will ensure reliable infrared remote control communications.
The M4 generates a modest amount of heat, but nothing that should
trouble adjacent components. It is especially important that sufficient
ventilation be provided. If you are contemplating on locating the M4 within
a cabinet or other furniture, consult your NAD audio/video specialist for
advice on providing adequate airflow.
The M4 is “XM Ready” which means that with the addition of separately sold
XM Mini-Tuner CPC-9000 and XM Mini-Tuner Home Dock, it has everything
you need to listen to live XM.
РУССКИЙ
SAVE THE PACKAGING
Please save the box and all of the packaging in which your M4 arrived.
Should you move or otherwise need to transport your M4, this is by far the
safest container in which to do so. We’ve seen too many otherwise perfect
components damaged in transit for lack of a proper shipping carton, so
please: Save that box!
Now in use in many countries, RDS is a system for transmitting station
identification, a description of the station’s program type, indication of
national, regional or local programs and the correct time. RDS also allows
you to search for favorite program types.
FRANÇAIS
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
Packed with your M4 you will find
· An AM loop antenna.
· A FM ribbon-wire antenna with balun.
· A DAB antenna (230V version only)
· A removable AC cable (if you wish, any IEC-standard AC cable of suitable
wattage may be substituted).
· The M4 remote control with 2 (two) AA batteries.

ABOUT ANTENNAS
The supplied ribbon-wire FM antenna can be connected to the rear-panel FMantenna input using the included “balun” adapter and should be fully extended
to form a “T”. This folded-dipole antenna will usually work best when oriented
vertically, with the arms of its “T” fully outstretched and arranged perpendicular
to the origin of the desired broadcast. There are no “rules” however, and
experimenting freely with antenna placement and orientation may yield the
clearest sound and lowest background noise.
TUNING STATIONS
1 Toggle [TUNE
] on the front panel or remote control to step up or
down between AM or FM frequencies.
2 Press and release [TUNE

ABOUT RDS
ITALIANO
Pressing the “fm mute” button again (“FM Mute Off” is displayed in the lower
line of the VFD) allows distant and potentially noisy stations to be received.
Noise is reduced if the FM station signal level is less than the FM Stereo
threshold (since mono FM is inherently less noise-prone) though at the
sacrifice of the stereo effect.
The Radio Data System (RDS) permits sending small amounts of digital
information using conventional FM radio broadcasts. The M4 supports
two RDS modes, station-name (PS mode) and radio-text (RT mode). Not
every FM station incorporates RDS in its broadcast signal. In most areas you
will find from one to several RDS-enabled stations, but it is by no means
impossible that your favorite stations will not be broadcasting RDS data.
NOTE
One can store the same channel in two preset locations - one with “FM
Mute Off” and another with “FM Mute On”.
VIEW RDS TEXT
When an RDS-enabled FM broadcast is tuned, after a brief delay the lower
line of the VFD will show its station-name (PS) text: “ROCK101,”for example.
Toggle the front-panel [INFO] key to scroll among other MODE settings for
the station’s radio-text (RT) readout, if any, which might scroll song or artist
name or any other text of the station’s choosing.

ABOUT DAB RADIO (230V VERSION ONLY)
DAB OPERATION
Until now, analogue radio signals such as FM or AM have been subject to
numerous kinds of interference on their way from the transmitter to your
radio. These problems were caused by mountains, high-rise buildings
and weather conditions. With Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB), you can now
receive CD-like quality radio programs without any annoying interference
and signal distortion. DAB broadcasts use digital signals rather than
traditional analogue transmissions, thus providing clear high quality
reception. You get far more robust reception and virtually hiss or crackle
free sound with DAB as long as you are within a good coverage area.
With the supplied DAB antenna already connected to the M4, you can
now carry out the M4 to receive DAB broadcasts. Use either the front panel
buttons or remote control keys for the following procedures.
1 Toggle [BAND] button until DAB mode. The VFD will show “No Service
List” indicating that there are no scanned DAB broadcast services yet.
This is the default mode of the DAB mode.
With DAB, the listener can scroll through a list of available stations - then
instantly tune to the station of his choice. There is no need either to
remember channel frequencies. All broadcasts are selected by simply
selecting the service name.
ESPAÑOL
The M4 makes it possible for you to enjoy listening to DAB broadcasts.
Connect the other end of the supplied DAB antenna into the DAB antenna
terminal and start enjoying the CD-like quality sound and expansive
content selection available with DAB.
DAB ANTENNA ASSEMBLY
1 Connect the antenna to its base.
2 To tune to DAB broadcast services, press [MODE] and then toggle the
front panel’s [TUNE
