NAD MDC-DAC Digital to Analog
Notes: The module should work with all C356bee amps and C375bee
amps H08C375BEEG05870 onwards. This change took place from August 2010
production. NAD apologizes to anyone that is inconvenienced by this issue but
cite this is an example where technology can overtake the existing platforms.
The MDC DAC requires the installation of a additional power
supply board on certain C375BEE amps. It is required for units with serial
numbers ending that range from ...8375 to ...8608 and …8762 to …8779. These are
also units using Main Board VM3.0. Soldering is required and a multi-meter
is highly recommended.
We love streaming computer music, especially 24/96 studio master tracks. But
most computer sound cards are not designed for music production and end up
ruining the sound while popular music streaming devices like Apple TV,
Squeezebox and Sonos follow a similar poor quality path. Plug any of these
devices into NAD’s MDC DAC and you will be blown away by what you hear! Listen
to the details and dynamics reproduced from the original recording rather than
the noise and distortion of an inadequately designed audio stage.
NAD's Innovative Solution
Two of our top-rated amplifiers, the C 375BEE and C 356BEE, have our unique
innovation—Modular Design Construction (MDC). MDC makes it easy to upgrade
features and functionality. With the MDC DAC, you get the convenience of
computer music without sacrificing the musical performance of your NAD hi-fi
Thanks to a technique known as 'asynchronous USB', we have eliminated
computer sound and let music flow freely. USB is a computer standard for
high-speed data transmission (good news for 24/96 quality music) but it has a
feature set skewed for PC use, not music. USB sends info in 'data packets'
making the system very robust. There is also a traffic manager that can vary the
size and sequence of the packets – good for PCs, bad for music. These timing
variations create a condition called 'jitter' – small variations that create a
harsh distortion. However, by using the MDC DAC’s high precision clock and
built-in NAD customised software to control the PC, this distortion can be
Be in Complete Control
If you love iTunes, plug your Apple TV into the MDC DAC and find out what the
world's most successful music service really sounds like. Ever wonder what Apple
lossless sounds like in comparison to AAC compressed downloads? The MDC DAC will
reveal the truth.
Get More from your Music
If you love the Sonos or Squeezebox experience, elevate it to the next level
of musical enjoyment with the MDCDAC installed in a 150W per channel C 375BEE
amplifier or 80W per channel C 356BEE amplifier. Either one of these highly
acclaimed amplifiers can drive high quality loudspeakers to realistic sound
levels without breaking a sweat. You’ll hear more detail, dimension and natural
timbre from each individual instrument than you ever thought
