NAD Masters M66 BluOS Streaming DAC Preamplifier

Product Descriptions

NAD Masters M66 BluOS Streaming DAC-Preamplifier

The NAD Masters M66 BluOS Streaming DAC-Preamplifier combines audiophile performance with multi-room streaming capabilities. This component features Dirac Live Room Correction, Dirac Live Bass Control, and a vibrant 7-inch touchscreen, all in elegant aluminum casework. Pair it with NAD’s M23 power amplifier for an unparalleled audio experience.

Multi-Room Music Streaming

With the BluOS multi-room music-management system, the M66 offers access to over 20 streaming services. These services include those providing lossless and high-resolution audio. Use the intuitive BluOS app on your smart device or computer to enjoy music from your favorite streaming service, personal library, or thousands of Internet radio stations. This is all available in up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution. Furthermore, the M66 supports full MQA decoding and rendering.

Dirac Live Software

Dirac Live Room Correction and Dirac Live Bass Control are integrated into the M66. These features transform your listening experience by improving sound quality with patented, purpose-built technology. Dirac Live not only corrects frequency response but also sound timing, ensuring each sound wave hits your ears precisely when intended. This results in better clarity, improved staging, and deeper, tighter bass free of resonances throughout the entire listening area.

To get started, connect the supplied calibrated microphone to the M66’s USB port and use the Dirac Live app to calibrate your system. The app walks you through easy-to-understand steps, analyzing your room’s acoustics and generating correction filters that compensate for acoustic problems like standing waves and unwanted reflections. With Dirac Live, you'll enjoy more textured bass, improved tonal accuracy, vastly improved clarity, and more focused imaging.

Dirac Live Bass Control is a revolutionary bass management system powered by machine learning. It offers smooth and equal bass throughout the whole listening area, a challenge that's nearly impossible to achieve with manual tuning. This system is perfect for managing multiple subwoofers, ensuring a seamless blend between your main speakers and subwoofers. Additionally, it optimizes bass output in both frequency and time domains.

Dirac Live has been used in professional mixing studios, control rooms, and commercial cinemas. It has been licensed to over 20 Hi-Fi and home theater OEMs with more than 200,000 delighted users worldwide. With its advanced algorithms and intuitive calibration process, Dirac Live makes it easy to achieve the best sound possible in any room.

Connectivity

The M66 supports a wide range of inputs, including HDMI eARC, MM/MC phono, and more. Whether you’re connecting vinyl, digital, or analog sources, the M66 has you covered. It features four balanced and four single-ended subwoofer outputs, allowing independent calibration of multiple subwoofers for a seamless blend with your main speakers. You can control your music with voice commands using Amazon Alexa or Apple Siri. Moreover, you can integrate the M66 into your smart home with systems like Control4 and Crestron.

Circuitry

At the heart of the M66 are the ESS Technology flagship Sabre DAC and ADC chips. These chips are known for their wide dynamic range, ultra-low noise, and outstanding time-domain performance. Additionally, NAD’s innovative Dynamic Digital Headroom (DDH) circuitry eliminates digital inter-sample peak clipping distortion, enhancing the natural sound of your music. The ultra-precise resistor-ladder volume control ensures minimal distortion and accurate left-right channel matching across all volume levels.

Design

The M66’s elegant aluminum casework, super-smooth digital volume control, and 7-inch touchscreen exude quality and class. Internally, the analog and digital sections are physically separated and shielded from each other, each with its own power supply sections, ensuring minimal interference. The selectable Analogue Direct mode bypasses all digital processing for a pure analog signal path.
