MAGIC FROM A DAC, THE D 1050
Please read the AudioStream review.
The NAD D 1050 USB DAC is the best way to add Computer Audio and HD Digital
to your component hi-fi system. Both the digital and the analog circuits are
highly optimized and based on techniques developed over 40 years of NAD audio
engineering excellence. The digital inputs cater to many different digital
sources. SPDIF inputs support balanced AES/EBU, coaxial and optical connectors.
The USB input is very special; its asynchronous operation mode uses the D 1050ís
high precision clock to control the output of the connected USB device for
lowest possible jitter. It also supports USB Audio Codec 2.0 allowing 192kHz
The digital processing of the D 1050 features Delta/Sigma architecture with
active oversampling filters. This technique effectively reduces out of band
noise while maintaining linear phase response and virtual elimination of filter
ringing in the pass band. This assures detailed and extended high frequency
response while taking full advantage of the extended response of recordings
sampled at 88.2kHz and above.
We pack a lot of premium high spec parts inside the D 1050. But premium parts
need optimal implementation to get the actual performance they promise. This is
where NAD expertise with both digital and analog circuits shows its true value.
Ultra short impedance-controlled signal paths are made possible by multi-layer
circuit boards and micro-miniaturized surface mount components soldered with
lead-free high silver content solder. These details all contribute to the
remarkable performance of this advanced DAC.
Analog outputs are fixed and include both balanced and single-ended
connections. We also include a premium quality headphone amplifier output that
includes a high quality volume control. Output impedance is extremely low,
minimizing the effect of connecting cables and keeping noise vanishingly
