There is also a coaxial digital output that allows connection to AVRs or outboard DACs.
Quality and Affordability
NAD's attention to detail and use of premium parts in the DAC 2 represents unusually good value. The DAC 2 is an easy and economical option that promises to boost the enjoyment of your existing component system.
