New from NAD
NAD was showing off their new line of small form factor gear. From left to right the D 1050 USB DAC ($499), D 3020 Digital DAC/Amp ($399), and the D 7050 Digital Network Receiver ($899). The 1050 asynchronous USB DAC can handle up to 24/192 data through USB, and also includes Coax, Toslink and AES/EBU inputs, balanced and single-ended outputs, and headphone out with volume control. The D 3020 combines a 30W/channel amplifier with an asynchronous USB 24/96-capable DAC, aptX Bluetooth for streaming music from your smartphone, a headphone amp, subwoofer out, and a remote. The D 7050 UPnP Network Receiver offers a 50W/channel amp, asynchronous USB input, Airplay, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and aptX Bluetooth. Wow.
These small but feature-packade products will hit the market Q2 2012.
