HiFidelity Review M51 Direct Digital DAC
March 21, 2012
In their latest publication and review, NAD's M51 Direct Digital DAC Amplifier has recently received critical acclaim from HiFidelity, one of Netherlands's premier high-end audio magazines for Dutch audio enthusiasts.
The below republished English-translated quotes are excerpts from HiFidelity's full review in their latest publication:
"It doesn't what your musical taste is, it's amazing how much quality the M51 offers."
"The M51's front panel is very simple - thick brushed aluminium faceplate with only a standby button, blue LED, large and easy-to-red VFD Display, and a button to select the desired input."
"The drumming of Mic Fleetwood popped out of the speakers, I was back in love with the voice of Stevie Nicks and have broken several strings of my air guitar...there was just a lot more music."
"Completly neutral, but nevertheless very relevant presentation , spacious, detailed, fast dynamic, musical audiophile...how many boxes should I check?"
"In the price range up to €3000 it would warrant serious competition; but when the limit is €2000, I wouldn't know what D/A converter I would rather have than an M51."
