c Send out the processed signal from your Mac or processor’s
corresponding Optical Out port into M2’s OPTICAL LOOP IN thereby
completing the signal loop path.
d Press front panel’s “loop” button to select your OPTICAL 1’s
“processed” input signal. When “loop” feature is engaged, “LOOP” will
be continuously displayed at the lower left corner of the VFD after a
brief display of sample rate setting of the source.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
With “loop” button enabled, there will be no audio output if any
connection from the above “loop” setup example is “broken” (i.e., no
connection to OPTICAL OUT, not looped to “OPTICAL LOOP IN”, etc). Press
“loop” button again to deactivate or turn off the “loop” feature (“LOOP”
is extinguished in the VFD) thus returning to normal audio listening of a
selected source input.
NOTE
This digital processor loop feature can be applied to all analog and
digital audio input signal sources (Optical 1-2, Coax 1-2, AES/EBU,
BALANCED and SINGLE-ENDED).
IDENTIFICATION OF CONTROLS
FIXED: This setting should be selected when M2 is connected
to the output of a preamplifier and is used primarily as a power
amplifier. Output level is fixed and the M2’s Volume Control is
bypassed. Adjust the level using the source signal’s preamplifier
volume or input level control.
NOTE
VOLUME control is bypassed and cannot be adjusted when LEVEL TRIM
is set to “FIXED” setting. The corresponding VOLUME level (in dB) will not
appear in the VFD; what will be shown instead is “VOL FIXED”. Set LEVEL
TRIM to any other level except “FIXED” to adjust VOLUME control to
desired level.
SAMPLE RATE (48 kHz, 96 kHz, 192 kHz): Select the user’s
preference for sample rate of the A/D Converter. Higher sampling
rates allow for anti-aliasing filters to take effect further outside the
audible frequency range and are generally considered to sound
better, especially in the high frequencies. You may need to reduce
the sampling rate if you are using the Digital Processor Loop, as many
external devices will not operate at 96 kHz or 192 kHz.
ESPAÑOL
FRANÇAIS
RENAMING A SOURCE INPUT
A particular source input can be renamed according to your preference.
You can use up to 20 characters in renaming a source input. Below is the
procedure on how to rename a source input.
Example: Rename “DIGITAL OPTICAL 1” to “BD PLAYER”.
1 Press the front panel “optical 1” button to select “DIGITAL OPTICAL
1” input. Then, press and hold the front panel “optical 1” button until
“DIGITAL OPTICAL 1” is shown in the lower section of the VFD and with
“D” flashing (Note that “DIGITAL OPTICAL 1” is also shown at upper
section of the VFD).
2 Within 5 seconds, rotate the VOLUME control knob clockwise or
counterclockwise to select the first character (“B” from the alphabetical
list). The ranges of characters available are 0-9, _ (space) and A-Z.
3 Press the front panel “loop” button to select the character and at the
same time move on to the next character. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for
each character in sequence.
4 Complete the renaming process by pressing the front panel “menu”
button to save the new source input name.
ITALIANO
NOTE
Attenuating too much can reduce the potential resolution of the A/D
Converter.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
For all of the above menu options, a chosen option or level setting will
not immediately take effect upon selection. There will be a slight delay or
pause before the corresponding action or response is realized.
NOTES
• Renaming of a source input can only be done using the front panel buttons.
• If no change is made within 5 seconds or if the front panel button of the
source input being renamed is pressed, the renaming process will be
automatically terminated with any renamed characters made not saved.
• You can terminate the renaming process by pressing any other front
panel buttons (except “loop”, “menu” or the current source input being
renamed). The renamed characters at the time of terminating the
process will be saved.
DEUTSCH
LEVEL TRIM: Adjust the BALANCED or SINGLE-ENDED input signal level
from -9dB to 0dB or FIXED.
-9dB to 0dB: Increase or decrease the input signal level from -9dB
to 0dB. This attenuates the signal before the Analog-to-Digital (A/D)
Converter. If the analog input signal sounds distorted, the input
should be attenuated.
POLARITY (POSITIVE, REVERSED): Allow compensation for
recordings that have reversed polarity.
Positive: A positive sine wave at the input remains positive at the
output.
Reversed: A positive sine wave at the input is negative (inverted) or
reversed at the output.
NEDERLANDS
13MENU: Toggle to view the available options such as LEVEL TRIM and
SAMPLE RATE options for BALANCED and SINGLE-ENDED input signal
as well as selections for SPEAKER COMPENSATION and POLARITY. These
menu options are accessed by pressing the MENU button and then
rotating the VOLUME control knob clockwise or counterclockwise to
select desired level or setting. Release the VOLUME knob when you
reach your preferred level or setting. The change will take effect after a
few seconds when the display returns to show the default information
(selected input and volume setting). Press MENU button again to select
another menu option.
ENGLISH
FRONT PANEL
SVENSKA
SPEAKER COMPENSATION (2 Ohms, 4 Ohms, 5 Ohms, 6 Ohms,
7 Ohms, 8 Ohms, >8 Ohms): Digital impedance compensation filter
allows fine tuning of the top octave to match the speaker impedance.
This will result in perfectly flat frequency response at 20 kHz. The
effect of this filter may not be audible* but it is measurable, and it
compensates for the small effect of the digital reconstruction filter that
eliminates the 288 kHz sampling frequency of the amplifier.
РУССКИЙ
*The exception may be some electrostatic speakers that have very low
impedance at high frequency. The lower the HF impedance, the greater
the deviation from flat response.

the AES/EBU IN connector. The AES/EBU IN is well suited to handle such
sources with high sampling rate.
7 DIGITAL SOFT CLIPPING™: Enables NAD’s proprietary Soft Clipping
circuitry on all channels. At ON position, Soft Clipping gently limits the
output of the M2 to minimize audible distortion should the amplifier be
over-driven. Soft Clipping may simply be left ON at all times to reduce
the likelihood of audible distortion from excessive volume settings.
However, for critical listening and to preserve optimum dynamics, you
may wish to defeat it by setting this switch to “OFF” position.
8 OFF/AUTO TRIGGER SWITCH: When at AUTO position, the front panel
STANDBY button is disabled and M2 remote control’s [ON/OFF] button
non-functional. At this condition, the M2 can only be switched ON from
standby mode or back to standby mode when +12V DC is applied or
cut off at the +12V TRIGGER IN jack. Slide the OFF/AUTO switch to OFF
setting for the M2 to be normally switched ON (or back to standby
mode) using the front panel STANDBY button or M2 remote control’s
[ON/OFF] button.

STANDBY button to activate. Switch the rear panel POWER switch to ON
position in order to make use of the +12V TRIGGER IN and OFF/AUTO
TRIGGER SWITCH features as well as the front panel STANDBY button.
IDENTIFICATION OF CONTROLS
Always use heavy duty (16 gauge; 1.5mm, or thicker) stranded wire
to connect loudspeakers to your M2. The high-current binding post
terminals can be used as a screw terminal for cables terminating in
spade or pin sockets or for cables with bare wire ends.
BI-WIRING
Most modern high quality loudspeakers offer the option of Bi-wiring.
This separates the HF crossover from the LF crossover and offers
enhanced performance by preventing LF return currents from affecting
the HF performance. If you decide to bi-wire, be sure to remove the
“links” at the loudspeaker that connect the LF and HF sections (these are
provided for convenience when single wire connection is used). Your
loudspeaker instruction manual should cover this subject as well.
FRANÇAIS
15 LEFT SPEAKERS: Connect the left speaker to the terminals marked “L
+” and “L-” ensuring that the “L+” is connected to the “+” terminal on your
loudspeaker and the “L-” is connected to the loudspeaker’s “-” terminal.
There are two sets of LEFT SPEAKER output and these are identical in
function (parallel connection) and are provided for ease of Bi-wiring
with heavy audiophile cables. Refer also to “RIGHT SPEAKERS” above.
16RS-232: Connect this interface via RS-232 serial cable (not supplied)
to any Windows® compatible PC to allow remote control of the M2
through NAD’s proprietary PC software or other compatible external
controllers. NAD is a certified partner of AMX, Control4, Crestron and
Savant and fully supports these external devices. See your NAD audio
specialist for more information.
17 IR IN: This input is connected to the output of an IR (infrared) repeater
(Xantech or similar) or the IR output of another component to allow
control of M2 from a remote location.
18 GROUND TERMINAL: The M2 requires a grounded AC receptacle or a
separate earth ground. Use this terminal to properly ground your M2. A
ground lead wire or similar can be used to connect the M2 to ground
via this ground terminal. After insertion, tighten the terminal to secure
the lead.
12 POWER SWITCH: The POWER switch supplies the master AC mains
power for the M2. When this switch is at ON position, the M2 is in
standby mode as shown by the amber status condition of the standby
LED. Toggle the front panel’s STANDBY button to switch ON the M2 or
back to standby mode. If you intend not to use the M2 for long periods
of time (such as when on vacation), switch the POWER switch to the
OFF position. When the POWER switch is at OFF position, the front
panel STANDBY button or M2 remote control cannot activate the M2.
BARE WIRES AND PIN CONNECTORS
Bare wires and pin connectors should be inserted into the hole in the shaft
of the terminal. Unscrew the terminal’s bushing until the hole in the screw
shaft is revealed. Insert the pin or bare cable end into the hole and secure
the cable by tightening down the terminal’s bushing. Avoid any danger
of bare metal from the cables touching the rear panel or another connector.
DEUTSCH
WARNING

speaker switching or headphone adaptors) that connect the left and
right channels together must not be used with the M2. Left and right
channels must never be connected to each other.
SVENSKA
SPADE CONNECTORS
These should be slotted under the terminal’s screw bushing, which is then
fully tightened. Ensure the connector is tightly secured and there is no
danger of bare metal from spade connectors touching the rear panel or
another connector as this may cause damage.
РУССКИЙ
13 AC MAINS INPUT: The M2 comes supplied with a separate AC Mains
cable. Before connecting the cable to a live wall socket ensure that
it is firmly connected to the M2’s AC Mains input socket first. Always
disconnect the AC Mains cable plug from the live wall socket first,
before disconnecting the cable from the M2’s Mains input socket.
ESPAÑOL
11 RIGHT SPEAKERS: Connect the right speaker to the terminals marked
“R +” and “R-” ensuring that the “R+” is connected to the “+” terminal
on your loudspeaker and the “R-” is connected to the loudspeaker’s “-”
terminal. There are two sets of RIGHT SPEAKER outputs and these are
identical in function (parallel connection) and are provided for ease of
Bi-wiring with heavy audiophile cables. Double check your speaker
connections before powering up the M2.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Do not use any substitute fuses of different types, ratings or values.
Failure to observe this precaution may cause damage to the amplifier
circuits and may create a fire hazard and/or defeat the safety built into
the M2 thus voiding the warranty.
ITALIANO
10 +12V TRIGGER OUT: The +12V TRIGGER OUT is used for controlling
external equipment that is equipped with a +12V trigger input. This
output will be 12V when the M2 is ON and 0V when the unit is either
OFF or in standby mode.
14 FUSE HOLDER: In the unlikely event a fuse may need to be replaced,
unplug the AC cord from the wall. Disconnect also the AC cord from
M2’s AC Mains input socket. Then, remove all connections from the
amplifier. Use a flathead screw or similar to open the fuse holder via the
slot located on the top edge of the fuse holder. With the screw driver
in place, push it outward to unlatch and open the fuse holder. Only
replace the fuse with the same type, size, and specification.

9 +12V TRIGGER IN: This input allows the M2 to be switched remotely
to standby mode or ON by ancillary equipment, such as an amplifier,
preamp, AV processor, etc. The controlling device must be equipped
with a 12 V trigger output to use this feature.

NOTES
• The above illustration shows the M2 being connected to ground via
a metal water pipe. There maybe other grounding conductor points
in your home. Consult with a licensed electrician to properly locate
or correctly install a grounding conductor in your home. NAD is not
responsible for any malfunction, damage or costs associated with the
installation, connection or grounding of your M2.
• The grounding wire is not supplied with your M2.
DIGITAL POWERDRIVE
ITALIANO
The M2 uses NAD’s proprietary Digital PowerDrive™ amplifier technology
that allows substantial additional power for short periods of time. Research
has shown that the peak to average power required to faithfully reproduce
music can be a factor of ten for well recorded performances. Digital
PowerDrive uniquely satisfies this requirement. Music sounds more
dynamic and “open” with PowerDrive because the musical transients that are
present in a live performance are not reduced in amplitude or “compressed”.
