NAD release new Masters M10 V2 BluOS streaming amp
NAD Electronics has announced the new and improved NAD Masters M10 V2 BluOS streaming amplifier which continues its ‘just add speakers’ revolution of hi-fi and should be available in Australia, through distributor Convoy International, in October.
The M10 V2 features 100 watts per channel of amplification and BluOS streaming capabilities, and adds the capability to expand with Dolby Digital Surround decoding, an enclosed IR remote control, and updated gain algorithms.
NAD product manager Cas Oostvogel says the original M10 caught the industry off-guard and made audiophiles and non-audiophiles reimagine what hi-fi could be.
“The M10 V2 continues where the first left off and adds even more versatility as a two-channel or potentially a wireless home theatre system.”
The M10 V2 includes audiophile–grade speaker terminals and two independent subwoofer jacks. Output settings for the subwoofer are easily controlled and adjusted through the BluOS Controller app.
Home theatre fans can easily build a Dolby Digital Surround Sound wireless 4.0, 4.1 or 4.2 immersive home theatre system using a pair of BluOS surround-enabled wireless speakers or amplifiers. The M10 V2 is capable of transmitting to rear channels wirelessly, with very low latency, making connecting wires around the room unnecessary.
Featuring an upgraded 7” IPS colour touchscreen, the M10 V2 delivers purer colours and a wider viewing angle than its predecessor. Renowned nCore amplification technology conservatively rated at 100 watts per channel is included behind the full colour display that doubles as an intuitive touchscreen controller for volume, sources and other audio controls.
The M10 V2’s updated gain algorithms allow for higher output levels with inefficient speakers. Its highly acclaimed ESS Sabre DAC effortlessly handles BluOS audio streams, which processes up to 24-bit/192kHz, and supports MQA and other lossless and high-resolution audio formats
It supports AirPlay 2, Bluetooth aptX HD, is Roon Ready, and can be used with popular voice control assistants. For smart homes, the M10 V2 can be integrated into Control4, Crestron, Lutron, and other home-automation systems, so you can control music playback, along with other home systems like lighting, shades, HVAC, and security.
