Superb Sounding Wireless Streaming DAC
It's simple. It's fun! Your venerable hi-fi system can jump right into the world of computer music. A feast of convenient options for listening to music is right there for the plucking on the Web. From the world's great streaming FM radio stations to 'cloud services' like Spotify and MOG that offer better sound quality and more control over your music choices. Enjoy jazz from Paris, news from London, hip hop from Detroit, samba from Rio de Janeiro, and much, much more.
NAD's two-piece DAC 1 is a super simple way to listen to any music stored on (or streamed to) your PC or Mac. This point-to-point wireless technology features the full audio bandwidth and remains uncompressed for the best possible sound quality.
Fast and Simple Installation
Just insert the DAC 1 Transmitter Module into the USB port on your computer. In effect, the NAD DAC 1 is now the sound card for your computer, and anything you can hear on your PC is digitally transmitted to your hi-fi. To enhance your experience there are several smartphone apps available to remotely operate your PC or Mac and deliver the rich user interface of the computer right to your fingertips. Imagine your computer can reside in the office, while you are both controlling and listening to the computer music wirelessly in your living room.
The DAC 1 Transmitter bypasses all the analog circuitry in your PC and transmits directly to the DAC 1 Receiver connected to your hi-fi system, using the native digital format for the best possible sound. Once received at the DAC 1 Receiver, the digital signal is converted and sent as an analog signal to your stereo amplifier. There is also a coax digital output that allows downstream digital processing.
Analog conversion uses premium BurrBrown op-amps and 24-bit, 192 kHz DACs with selected passive components in a proprietary circuit. This attention to detail is unusual at the price and is the reason for NAD's incredibly musical sound.
