NAD Products
2017
Music + Technology. Together.
It began in 1972. Through the drive and determination of innovators
and trailblazers alike, NAD was born. Looking through the lens of
performance, simplicity and value, NAD delivers products that bring
listeners as close as possible to the recording studio and an artists’
expression of sound. While many music lovers have since swapped
their LPs and CDs for streaming from digital sources, our mission
hasn’t changed—we remain true to our audiophile roots and the
awards and accomplishments speak for themselves.
From our forward-looking Modular Design Construction to our
outstanding BluOS™ music management software, NAD is leading
the way to a richer and more expansive listening experience. We are
committed to a leadership position in high performance, high value
audio electronics while breaking down the barriers for simplified
music enjoyment.

The BluOS™ Advantage
BluOS™ is a proprietary operating system shared by high-end audio brands
Bluesound and NAD Electronics. Unlike other solutions that rely on 3rd
party software like UPnP, BluOS is a dedicated ‘music only’ operating
system that allows for interoperability among enabled devices and
provides connectivity to numerous cloud and network music sources.
Working through a home’s WiFi network, all BluOS Enabled components
are easily networked (right out of the box) to create the ultimate wholehome hi-fi system. With BluOS Ready components, BluOS is optional and
can be unlocked with either the BluOS kit or an MDC upgrade. BluOS fully
supports Hi-Res Audio (HRA) and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA),
as well as many popular lossless and lossy codecs. It also features
seamless integrations with common smart home controls like Control4®,
Crestron®, and RTI®, among others. Alternatively, BluOS Enabled devices
can be controlled with a free app available for smartphones, tablets,
and desktops.

Modular Design Construction
Digital PowerDrive
Change, upgrade, customise. It’s up to you. Our Modular
Design Construction makes obsolescence a thing of the
past. When 3D video and HDMI 1.4 hit the scene we were
ready. We’ll be ready for the next technology change,
too. Available on select NAD Receivers and Preamp
Processors, this simple upgrade solution features input
circuitry on easily removable modules, so you can add,
change or customise features and capabilities as they
become available. Your system is now upgradeable.
To maximize our real Full Disclosure Power, we’ve
developed an amplifier circuit called PowerDrive. Music
and films have dynamic passages with everything from
a whisper to an explosion. Very little power is required
for a whisper, but an explosion demands high-current
drive and high dynamic power. To meet such demands,
we created our patented PowerDrive amplifier circuit,
cementing our reputation for amazingly effective power.
By adding a second high voltage rail to our well-regulated,
high-current power supply, we get ‘overdrive’ that can
nearly double the continuous power for a short term. It’s
like having turbo boost for your amplifier or receiver.
Full Disclosure Power
Soft Clipping
Instead of rating our amplifiers and receivers at loads
suitable only in laboratory environments (single channel
at 8 Ohms and 1kHz frequency), NAD’s Full Disclosure
Power rating system measures the power delivered to
multiple channels simultaneously, across the full
frequency range (20Hz-20kHz), at the always-difficult
4 Ohm load. This not only demonstrates the
dynamic power management capabilities of NAD
amplifiers and receivers, but is a testament to why
NAD is world renowned for audio engineering that
delivers real-world power without distortion.
We understand that no matter how much power we
provide, there will always be a demand for more. When
an amplifier is overdriven—asked to go beyond its
capabilities—the result is distortion or ‘clipping’. This
can cause damage to your loudspeakers. Our answer
to this is the patented NAD Soft Clipping circuit
which, when switched on, will gently transform the
sound waveform as the point of clipping approaches.
The result is much clearer sound reproduction
and simultaneous protection of speakers.
DirectDigital™
HybridDigital™
DirectDigital™ is the next step forward in amplification,
eliminating all analogue circuits in the signal path.
With NAD’s DirectDigital technology the conversion
from digital data stream to electrical waveform
occurs right at the speaker outback of the amplifier,
up to that point the signal remains in the digital
domain and virtually free of jitter and distortion.
The search for a high-performance Class D solution led
NAD to HybridDigital™, which is an innovative amplifier
technology that uses a variable modulation frequency to
bring out the life-like qualities of music, while reducing
distortion under every operating condition. This clever
design is highly optimized and gives phenomenal
performance, both measured and subjective.

BluOS Enabled systems let you easily browse & access
local music collections and streaming services, and
integrate wireless hi-res music into any room in your
home, right out of the box and without any additional
wiring or equipment. Using your home network, BluOS
enabled systems can be synced with other BluOS devices
to create the ultimate whole-home hi-fi system.
All BluOS Ready systems are MDC-equipped and
feature a USB input, which allows you to connect an
upgrade kit and unlock BluOS for wireless hi-res music
streaming. Connect your BluOS systems with other
rooms in your home, whether it’s a single speaker in
one room or a multi-room system in two rooms, to

SpeakeriQ
RoomFeel
N AD SpeakerIQ is an easy way for you to set up your home
theatre within minutes. Using the supplied microphone,
and with the push of a button on your NAD remote control,
NAD SpeakerIQ sends test signals to the various speakers
in the room. Necessary adjustments to the AVR’s audio
commands are made by measuring the distance between
speaker and listening position, correcting for loudness and
frequency response of audio signals from each speaker.
Our engineering team created RoomFeel™ to translate
the warm, open sound of live performance directly into
your private headphone experience. The result is a
headphone innovation that dramatically expands the
whole soundstage. You have to hear it to know what
you’ve been missing. Game-changing audio once again.

audio that is capable of reproducing the full range of
sound from recordings that have been mastered from
better than CD quality sources. NAD’s components support
hi-res audio file formats, including FLAC, ALAC, WAV,
and AIFF, to accurately reproduce at 192kHz at 24 bit.
