With NAD’s innovative Modular Design Construction, adding
the latest cutting-edge technology can be as simple as a software upgrade and
slipping a new hardware module into your stereo NAD amplifier. The MDC USB DSD
is the latest MDC module from NAD that adds USB Audio 2 PCM and DSD playback
capability to six of our most popular stereo (pre-) amplifiers (M33, M32, M12,
C 388, C 368, C 658). Experience the convenience of computer music playback and
streaming, in high resolution up to 24-bit/192kHz PCM and DSD256, combined with
the musical performance of your NAD hi-fi system.
Enhance your music experience
Thanks to the Asynchronous USB connection with the MDC USB
DSD module we have eliminated computer sound and let music flow freely. The
module bypasses the computer’s low-quality DAC, clocks and associated circuitry
that cause jitter and distortion by using the high-quality DAC in your NAD amp.
Now you can listen to the details and dynamics reproduced from the original
recording in their full glory rather than the noise and distortion of the
typically mediocre computer audio stages.
With the ever-growing amount of high-resolution content up
to 24-bit/192kHz available for download or streaming, experiencing music as it
was originally recorded in the studio or at a live concert has never been
easier. Utilizing USB Audio 2, the MDC USB DSD enables the playback of DSD
files up to DSD256 by converting to 24-bit/192kHz hi-resolution PCM audio.
Enjoy the convenience of playing your favorite music from your computer’s USB
connection, to stream from the local hard drive, or popular music streaming
services such as Spotify, Tidal or Qobuz. The MDC USB DSD is sure to extend the
musical enjoyment of your NAD amplifier.
