Integrated Amp for Digital Sources, Wireless and Wired
NAD's D 7050 with Apple AirPlay is one sweet and simple package. If you have a computer or smartphone running iTunes and a home Wi-Fi network, just add the D 7050 and your favorite loudspeakers. You'll now have a state-of-the-art audio system in a stylish and compact package that fits anywhere in your home.
Wireless access is universal, as the D 7050 also supports Bluetooth aptX for hi fidelity point-to-point streaming without a network. Downloads and streaming, instant access to all the music in the world, has been combined with the audio excellence that you expect from NAD. A premium headphone amplifier output with a high quality volume control is also included for your personal listening.
The Streaming is Easy
Equipped with Apple AirPlay, the D 7050 is the ultimate plug-and-play solution for wireless music in your home. The D 7050 can also stream any UPnP audio content on your home network, but if you don't have a network, you can simply stream directly from your smartphone or laptop using the latest hi fidelity Bluetooth aptX. The D 7050 can also get you hooked up to your music via a wired connection from your computer or from a USB Drive. It can even recharge a docked iPad while streaming.
Innovative Direct Digital Technology
The D 7050 features NAD's most advanced digital platform, Direct Digital, first introduced in the award-winning Masters Series M2 Amplifier. Direct Digital eliminates any noise and distortion producing analog circuits in the D 7050, so your music remains digital right up to the speaker outputs. Direct Digital technology performs all preamplifier functions in the digital domain using sophisticated software to control all aspects of performance. Digital is converted to analog by a simple passive two-pole reconstruction filter located at the speaker outputs.
This radical design is the world's first successful closed loop digital amplifier, which compares the output to the input, and then compensates for any differences to achieve a 'perfect' result. The uncompromising performance of the D 7050 is largely due to the elimination of noisy and resonating analog circuits that can obscure musical detail and soften musical transients.
Small is Beautiful
NAD has packed four times the amount of circuitry into one-quarter of the space compared to the company's traditional analog receivers. This makes sense, since high-speed digital circuits perform better with very short signal paths. NAD also employs large-scale integrated circuits (LSIs), surface mount components, and multi-layer printed circuit boards to optimize speed and performance while keeping the form factor ultra-compact.
The high efficiency of NAD's Direct Digital amplifier technology significantly reduces the size of the heat sinks and power supply required, while offering improved sound quality. There is even a subwoofer output with selectable digital crossover that encourages the addition of a powered subwoofer for cinema effects and musical rhythms you can feel as well as hear. The result is a cool running, compact powerhouse with remarkable performance.
Mean, Green, and Clean
NAD has taken amplification to new lows, with lower distortion, lower noise, and lower power consumption. Compact and cool, the D 7050 can power and control expensive high-end loudspeakers while playing them at life-like levels! The D 7050's pure digital amplification highlight's NAD's major focus on finding new technology that can improve musical performance while consuming less power to operate. Plus it uses fewer non-renewable resources in manufacturing. The D 7050 packs a mean musical punch that would make any music lover proud.
