What Hi-Fi Names NAD M51 Best DAC for 2012
October 22, 2012
The NAD M51 Direct Digital DAC not only garners a superb five-star rating from What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision in its latest edition, but also wins a highly coveted What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision Award in the bargain. With its open, transparent sound and immense levels of detail, it is no wonder What Hi-Fi? editors were climbing over one another to hear the M51 Direct Digital DAC. Read what the sound experts at What Hi-Fi? had to say about one of the best NAD separates they'd ever heard.
"And hearing the DAC in action, it's hard to argue otherwise. Music sounds wonderfully clear and transparent."
"This NAD can display details and sonic textures that cheaper DACs struggle to convey. This is as relevant when listening to 16-bit/44.1kHz CD playback as it is when indulging in a 24-bit/192kHz high-res file."
"The M51 sounds sensational. In fact, we'd go further than that by saying it's one of the best NAD separates we've heard in recent memory."
