Five-out-of-Five for M51 in Hi-Fi World

October 3, 2012

Featured in today's most prominent audio magazines, the M51 Direct Digital DAC has gained another perfect score in Hi-Fi World's excellent five-globe review of NAD's latest digital-to-analogue converter to join their prestigious Master Series. Available in the November issue of Hi-Fi World, editor Rafael Todes can't help but relive memories of his legendary NAD 3020 amplifier when listening to this "polished performer" from NAD.

5 star DAC

"The sound had a refinement to it, often found in DACs selling at several times the price."

"An exceptionally beautiful, smooth silky violin section lacked any hint of the harsh graininess that makes analogue worshippers run a mile."

"NAD effortlessly captures the silky shine of the violin, a sound not unlike a really fine wine — full of complexity and tonal depth, rounded and smooth with no brittleness to it."

"It has a rare beauty of sound to it that so many others lack, it has a superb preamplifier built-in, and may be the instrument of choice for those people who value these qualities above all others."


For the full five-star review from Hi-Fi World, check local and worldwide newsstands for their November cover-date issue which is available now.
