NAD M50.2 Digital Music Player Announced

NAD Electronics today announced the Masters Series M50.2 Digital Music Player, offering audiophiles a major upgrade to the M50 model introduced four years ago. The new, $4000 M50.2 offers high resolution music listening, multi-room wireless streaming to other BluOS enabled speakers, 24/192 storage, and CD ripping all in one elegant component.

M50.2 is a top-of-the-line, BluOS enabled player that is an extension to the company’s 40th anniversary M50/M51/M52 Digital Music Suite combining the functions of both the M50 and M52 into one sleek package. Offering only digital outputs, but including AES/EBU and HDMI, the only addition needed is a complementary DAC or Digital Preamp such as NAD’s M12 and M17 models.

With the M50.2, the music lovers can simply network music throughout their home. They can do this effortlessly as they digitize and centrally store their music library and then make it available to other BluOS-enabled components throughout their home. And it is all in high resolution with merely a tap of the finger away on a smartphone or tablet or a click of a universal remote.

BluOS claims to offer users the broadest array of music sources for high resolution playback. Rip CDs into 24/192 storage, directly download High Res music without a computer, stream from a cloud service, or plug in an existing digital music library from a hard drive – wherever or however music is accessed it can be enjoyed with
 the M50.2.

In addition to some of the most efficient and highest performing processors available, the M50.2 is elegantly designed, with a bright control panel and a sleek and streamlined look.
