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 Ö8762 to Ö8779. 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 high resolution 24/192 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 NADís MDC DAC 2.0 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.
