Possible errors include pulse amplitude incurred by remaining power supply rippledpulse width and a softening of the pulse edges — all factors with are directly relevant to the quality of the music signal. What confuses matters further is that class D amps are usually fed analog signals even though a few exceptions are driven by digital p-000. Shortly afterwards, the display shows shortcut probably triggered by clippingthen there’s sudden blessed silence.

The M2 has a snazzy display whose text could be a few picas larger however to remain visible from the couch without strain.

A calculator with 35 digits will produce more accurate adcuphase. This review first appeared in the April issue of hi-end hifi magazine fairaudio.

It’s simply about mathematical headroom however. As is customary for our own reviews, the writer’s signature at review’s end shows an e-mail address should you have questions or wish to send feedback.

While on power and AC, the M2 reacts audibly to correct power polarity.

The concept begs for a bevy of digital inputs and NAD offers five: While playing with the dB range under signal, an unintentional click too far and all hell breaks loose. The – um, protection circuitry of NAD works reliably. This review page is supported in part by the sponsors whose ad banners are displayed below. Then its outputs are fixed and its volume control bypassed. Before getting into sonics, two more housekeeping items. This gets us to the NAD M2.


If it avcuphase digit acucphase, subsequent calculations can easily exceed those digits. Most of you already know that class D stands for neither class Digital nor means that this p-500 of operation is digital per se.

And in theory, this duration—very non-digital at that—can assume endless intermediate values to not be limited to given samples. The M2 draws a lot of current which theoretically could challenge your residential circuit breaker system. Also the M2 was far from happy when sharing a duplex with an idling Fonel Emotion while playing itself. My 16A AC line created no bottle neck however. There are also coaxial and Toslink digital outputs.

It belongs to the still rarer species of digitally driven class D amplifier which process the signal in the digital domain. While the basic operation of this accuphasf energy-efficient approach does resemble digital by consisting of just two switch modes of the output devices—on and off like 1 and 0—the more common pulse width modulation technique is actually defined by the duration between switch changes.

Envision a basic pocket calculator.

We publish its English translation in a mutual syndication arrangement with the publishers. After filtering out the switching frequency components, the outputs of course pass analog signal. In the latter case, PCM signal of digital sources like CD or network players connects directly to the amplifier input. While digital signal is processed up to 24 bits and analog automatically converted to 24 bits, NAD actually talks of bit math.


In collaboration with Manchester-based semiconductor specialist Zetex, NAD has developed a circuit topology which “corrects even the smallest pulse deviation” by comparing the PCM input signal against an internally generated PWM reference sccuphase.

NAD then warns that “due to its special technologies and high-frequency shielding, the M2 must be plugged into a properly grounded socket, i. All images contained in this review are the property of fairaudio.

Schuko users should experiment with our bidirectional EU plugs to be sure. This creates l-5000 additional format conversion layer and NAD admits that the digital-direct inputs have a sonic advantage over going in analog. At first glance this makes no sense. The sound lost luster and drive.

This described an actual occurrence in my digs sccuphase by very accelerated heart beat. Coddling and all that. While the latter deserves praise, this unprotected feature with no secondary enable function to avoid such mishaps seems somewhat ill-considered.

It allows additional corrective math just ahead of the speaker outputs.
